Some mellow stuff for Sunday

So, it’s Sunday, so time for two very different artists to be foistered upon you.

First up, legendary member of the Incredible String Band, Robin Williamson.

I had been aware of the Incredible String Band for a long time, but hadn’t really closely listened to any of their albums, until I read a feature in The Wire a few months ago on Robin Williamson. There were six tracks of his solo stuff on their site, so I devoured these and set about sampling all the albums through my local library. See what you think of the bard:

From Skirting the River Road

Robin Williamson -‘The Four Points Are Thus Beheld.’ mp3

Robin Williamson -‘The Journey.’ mp3

From The Iron Stone

Robin Williamson -‘Bacchus.’ mp3

Robin Williamson -‘The Climber.’ mp3

From The Seed At Zero

Robin Williamson -‘The Seed At Zero.’ mp3

Robin Williamson -‘The Barley.’ mp3

And now for something completely different…

I don’t know if you would call Maps shoegazing or Electronica or both, even, but i think they would appeal to fans of both genres. I love these three tracks, and think you should give these a spin (from the album We Can Create:

Maps-‘You Don’t Know Her Name.’ mp3

Maps-‘Eloise.’ mp3

Maps-‘It Will Find You.’ mp3

As always, if you like what you hear, check out you local independent record shop.

Have a good week!
