056/100 - "Under the Sodium Lights" by Slow Dancing Society
"Under the Sodium Lights" by Slow Dancing Society has a relaxed ambience that is utterly engaging. I find myself continually transfixed with its dreamlike expression: sounds come in and out, vocal samples appear from nowhere, distinctive motifs are played on both electric piano and guitar; it is an unadulterated pleasure to consume.
Ambient music isn't everyone's bag: at times it can be dull, repetitive and monotonous; dreary and lacking in basic musicality. This album from Slow Dancing Society proves it doesn't have to be that way. Ambient music can be vibrant, alluring, varied and alive; ripe with possibility and potential.
