Things of simplicity

The voice of Sophie Barker is calming, intriguing, gossamer, luminous- the one we all imagine our mother's to be when singing lullabies or our own when the depths of our world suddenly plummet.

I purchased Zero 7's Simple Things. It was truly refreshing to stop into the music section of Barnes & Noble and find someone who knows music, and specifically knows the genre for which you are looking.

Previous confessions of the love of the minor and harmonic keys and the appeal to my sense of the melancholy will make my delight in "Spinning" understandable. It is one of two bonus tracks on the CD. This band is much more than I imagined or realized and their music invokes a sense of relaxation, thoughtfulness, and would be the perfect CD to throw into the changer for a small party. It is aptly named.

Rarely am I pleased with every song on a CD. This is one of those times. Thanks brother.

That is so funny that you like more melancholic music just like T, and I like more triumphant music!
