Street of the Love of Days
Warning! Don’t listen to this album while you’re driving. The stretched out, soothing sounds of harps, bouzoukis, strings, recorders and brass mingle to produce a debut album your massage therapist will love. And if you can persuade him or her to play it while you’re getting your back rubbed, you’ll be in ecstasy. Allow yourself to be transported to a place of calm during key tracks “House of Flint,” “Season of Light” and “Wild Winter Trees.” The album was written between Spain and England — and it shows. Sultry harmonies and a little bit of bossa nova will make you yearn for a hammock, heavy eyelids and a glass of sangria.
