Dreamy architecture

This is San Francisco band Stripmall Architecture, with their song "Her Words" off their 2009 album We Were Flying Kites. Just lean back in your tie-dye shirt with some bud and enjoy some mellow dream pop...

  1. (Velvety male voice...) "Welcome to... Farts of Space, where we bring you music to put you to sleep, from La-la Land..."

    This is well enough done; I have no complaints with the musicianship. But my approximately five-year affair with this sort of music, three decades ago, left me feeling... well, left me feeling as if I'd had a five-year affair that never went anywhere. My loss, of course.

    (Velvety male voice again...) "Next, we bring you 'Lots of Long Tones on the Oboe,' performed by Hairy Reed..."

  2. Steve, this is the sort of music that requires the proper, err, herbal supplements (heh), to properly enjoy it. I liked their music of their previous band, Halou, a bit better, it had more of a trip-hop feel to it, but I do like supporting the local bands if they're good. And these folks are good at what they do, which is create a nicely textured wall of music for the enjoyment of Northern Californians who enjoy listening to jams while, err, herbally supplemented :).
