Abstract Ambient and Euro Folktronica meet music for Friday night baths as Banglalore Dancehall merges with Dub Techno before Minimal Modern Composition leads to Soulful Zouk. Throw in some AfroLatin Jazz, a Balearic nugget followed by deep Detroit Electro Breaks and end with some Siamese Disco, shake over ice and pop an umbrella in the top. Welcome to the world of Slow Music.

Welcome to our weekly RSS feed friendly round up of this week's daily music recommendations, just in case you are reducing screen time or don't want to hopefully ride the algorithmic rollercoaster on social media.
Infinite Spirit Music - Live Without Fear (Jazzman)
The jazz hat is on and beard being stroked to the deep, golden age, spiritual jazz of Infinite Spirit Music. Big up Jazzman Records for giving it a proper 2019 vinyl+digital reissue making it eternally & widely accessible to all music lovers rather than just the dusty shelf fillers :)
Scott Gilmore - Two Roomed Motel (Crammed)
It's been interesting charting the evolution of Scott Gilmore & with his new LP for Crammed Discs he's less lo-fi, new age of New Age & more microdosed, wayward, seemingly care free, dreamy string & synth pop but still charming and very listenable.
Secret Circuit - Data Collector EP (Bandcamp Self Release)
Remember when Thursday was the start of the weekend? Get the party started with the new EP from Secret Circuit - playful, deep, forward leaning, Déjà Vu inducing, wobbly, toad licked, house vibes with a feel-good factor.
Organic Pulse Ensemble - Transcending the Sum (Urban Waves)
Quality new spiritual jazz LP from Sweden's best sounding misnomer, the Organic Pulse Ensemble for Urban Waves. Remarkably, the super talented onesemble, Gustav Horneij plays every instrument. I'm looking forward to the live show :)
smileswithteeth - Care (Bandcamp Self Release)
In troubling times it's good to see an artist call to arms, especially when those arms are caring, open wide & ready to embrace. Check out the reconstructed live jazz session rooted, laid back, soulful beats & fine sentiments of Smileswithteeth.
Quentin Sirjacq - Companion (Schole)
France's Quentin Sirjacq provides the delicate yet defining thread that stitches the seemingly disparate, inventively arranged electronic, jazz, classical, cinematic & even Afro patches into a warm and welcoming listen for Japan's Schole Records.
Last Days - Fragments (Bandcamp Self Release)
Sunday listening sorted with this eminently listenable and hard to fathom why they were ever, collection of outtakes and reworks from Last Days showcasing his electro acoustic, modern classical, ambient, cinematic fusing artistry.
