A Song A Day: April 5th – A Fluffy Little Post

5 04 2011

Today’s post is quite different from yesterdays. I’m bringing you an ambient track today. When I first heard this song, I used to fast forward my way through it and skip it on my tape. However, with the groups most recent release I started to look back into their history books and re listened to it. I like the song considerably more now I’m a little bit older and wiser. It’s pretty laid back but with just enough going on so it doesn’t get boring or too meh.

This is straight out of the 90’s incase you couldn’t tell. The spoken words at the start of the track contrast nicely with the main tinkling keyboard melody and obligatory synth sounds. The keyboards continue throughout the entire track playing the same melodic passages in pattern with various vocal samples laid over the top. I think that this one may take a few listens to really appreciate but it’s an infectious melody and you’ll find yourself thinking off it throughout the day I’m sure.

Those synaesthetic souls out there will definitely approve of this one. Little Fluffy Clouds by The Orb

Hey Daniel, I think this one would be good to play when I’m doing housework. I think I could get a lot done.

I’ve got a few of the Orb’s stuff, it’s ideal as background music, the tempo is just nice on this one so it’s not too relaxing, nor is it too intense. Thanks for commenting, Marianne!
