V.A - Sonidos en Agua Vol 3
Now there's a title that's bound to confuse you. It actually means 'Water Sounds' I am told. No, it isn't one of those new age type albums with the sound of running water! In fact who knows why it's called water sounds..?
Today I wanted to give you something a bit different. Different to what? Good question.
I have just been lazing around Sunday style listening to this and it fits perfectly. This album, though not the best in its genre by any stretch of the imagination, is definitely good at what it does and that is: relaxing you!
It's probably known as 'ambient' 'chill-out' 'Downtempo' 'Lounge' or other such pigeon hole nonsense but I don't care much for all that bollocks to be honest. I just know what I like and this is pretty good.
It's lazy sunday beats. It's sunny afternoons, it's sitting by the river in summer, it's gazing at the clouds going over your head whilst lying in a cornfield, it's all of those things and more. It's also good for the lovemaking, no doubt about that one. Hmm try it.
I have had this one in my collection for only a year or so and haven't listened to it for a while. Having heard it again today I might not play it again for a few months. It just isn't something I could hear every day. It would be boring. I always think such lazy music is great for when it is appropriate but you can't just listen to it anytime. It gets a little repetitive. Of course some might just say its fucking elevator music. Hehe.
You better decide for yourself which is why I give it to you today.
So in conclusion: Listen to this album, have a shag, file it away and don't bother with it for another few months. Or until the next time you have sex(whichever is sooner).
Do the readers of this site actually have sex?
I won't let that train of thought go any further..yuk.
Some excellent Dub tomorrow and also a special treat for any fans of John Lennon..
Or should I post that excellent Flamenco/chill album I love so much?
