A wonderful physical manifestation of a glorious illustration come to toy-life, as far as I am concerned! And I could wuite literally feel the lo-fi vibes swimming thru the echos = LOVE IT!

BACKSTORY: This piece is a warm invitation to enjoy the soothing power of music, an ode to relaxation and sweet idleness. All you have to do is settle into a cozy armchair with your favorite chill tracks in the ears and begin your dreamland's exploration.. (Stay connected:

And while I had featured this on my TUNES-TALK-blog, allow me the indulgence to post some here as well, cheers.

Not on his OLDER album, but still a gem perfect for this:
