    So I was intrigued by this track so downloaded the album (Montage) into Audirvana. Mika Posen was one of the main violinists playing alongside Agnes Obel. She has contributed to a number of artists and plays both violin and viola but the album I downloaded Montage has a lot of electronica loops and ambient soundscapes.

    It casts a dreamy soundstage with huge ambient sound and beautifully arranged pieces. Some of the music is haunting and mediative and there are echoes not surprisingly of Agnes Obel.

    All I can say is it is 30 minutes of stunningly good music that will get inside your head. Not heard it on vinyl yet but it is on the way

    Bit I listened to on band amp, if which I'm a member was very decent. Has a hypnotic appeal

    What did you think Alex? I have the LP for xmas arrive and have been listening to the download for weeks. I think it is very relaxing hypnotic beautifully composed contemporary music.

    Thought it might be your taste Brian. The whole album is of the same quality and I think available on Spotify.

    Happy Christmas to you and the family
