This week it’s Pastoral Beats. Warm gentle Electronica that evokes memories of carefree and less stressful times. It’s music of comfort and consolation led by deceptively simple melodies over increasingly intricate rhythms. The arty side of chill-out where each has their own unique style of swing.
We will hear from six bands on this episode of Idyllic Music including Saduint, IRP System Sound, Tide Pool Crustaceans, Monokle, Esem and FX- Labs. I’m Jim Nye.
