Idyllic Music Podcast

Trip Hop - Electronica - Downtempo

Episode 144

Welcome to the Idyllic Music Podcast featuring the melodic and rhythmic, the charmingly simple and deceptively complex.

Idyllic Music can be Trip Hop or Ambient, Jazz, Dub or Downtempo. In short, headphone electronica. Music as cool as a gentle summer stream.

This week, we'll look at enormity and scale. Whether it's astrophysical or personal, size and distance is often difficult to gauge. Everyone has seen artist renderings of the solar system depicting the sun and planets but the scale of those drawing can't begin to reflect the actual distance between those satellites. The same is true with opinions and feelings. Often we feel so distant when in fact we share much more in common with each other than not. Other times not so much. Offering a guide this week are Blisaed, Bersarin Quartett, God Is An Astronaut, Kesakoo and Messian Dread. I'm Jim Nye.

We'll begin in San Diego with Matthew Centonze recording as Blisaed. This is 'Cold'
