Listening Recommendations

Arushi Jain – Under the Lilac Sky / Ever get high and Listen to some synth ragas? No, dude — me neither – Revolt of the Apes

Harold Budd / Brian Eno – The Pavilion of Dreams / A pink pearl necklace of galleries, diffused in soft light. Overhead, a lofted crystal glass ceiling opens to a night jeweled with stars. Meanwhile, a gallery of Greek masks watches on, mouths agape. A soft hiss of air shivers palm trees and fern fronds – J. Simpson
