Not usually a fan of his post Nivana stuff, but caught this on the radio the other day and liked it.
The song starts at about 10 mins in, and is 22 mins long.

My current choice is a bit more chill...
Wilsen - I Go Missing in My Sleep (2017)
It's calm, poetic folk with electronic and post-rock touches that might appeal to, say, those who like Suzanne Vega. Quite nocturnal and probably best played at no more than medium volume. A good one for an insomnia playlist.
I'm off to listen to more of this, thanks.

The Ultimate Collection by The Carpenters, in some peoples eyes the epitome of 70's easy listening muzak, in my opinion purveyors of wonderful music which benefited from superb musical arrangements and vocals delivered by one of the all time great singers of popular music. At their (frequent) best there was something rather unusual in their recordings, as they were crafted to perfection and everything about their performances was polished with precision, yet they did not sound sterile or lacking in emotion. To combine that sense of perfection with emotional depth takes an awful lot of skill I think. I don't care what anybody say's, to me the music of the Carpenters fully deserves to be called "great". Karen Carpenter's tragic early death was a great loss to music.

Can listen forever to this track. Sort of guilty pleasure. Lo-Fi from Weast at it's best.

That cracked me up!
Somehow reminded me of some early beta Network Management Software that Tokyo sent us long ago. It was all in Day-Glo colors.
