This week, we'll look at the downcast and sorrowful. Baruch Spinoza defined sadness as the transfer of a person from a large perfection to a smaller one. All the songs on the show this week have an underlying sadness. They are small vignettes of personal loss and helplessness and yet they are not uncomfortable or painful. There is a soul cleansing purging quality that makes you feel raw and renewing. We'll heard Idmer, Owen, Aydio, Gilo, The Sugar Clouds and Aereal. I'm Jim Nye.
We'll begin with French producer Idmer with 'Echos du Coeur'
