F. S. Blumm "Zweite Meer" (Morr Music)

pretty little things with no words. f. plays almost everything himself; things like the accordion, xylophones, melodica, guitar, toys. the sound is warm and comforting, but fraglie as well. the actual instruments are occasionally massaged with some subtle electronic tweaking. it reminds me a lot of a record called "the isle" by World Standard and Wechsel Garland that i've been liking a lot lately, but it missed this list by a year or two. david grubbs sings on the last track. in english, the title means "second sea," which makes me wish i could listen to this underwater.

purchased this one too with an iTunes gift certificate. I like it. As always, you have excellent taste.

hey, i'm always happy to bring stuff to your attention, and vice versa. i think you'd be into everything on my list except for 10 and 1, which i promise to get to shortly. why don't we exchange some mixes. . . exercise our design muscles, too. oh wait, i guess you probably don't need that kind of exercise. so you're exempt from designing a fancy cover, if you like.
