While yoga and surfing inspired this new age guitar man, his playing reminds me of instrumental work from Richard Thompson in his Sufi period. It was smoking stuff then and this new side to it is smoking now. You can hear the sincere hippie in Haugen’s soul as this almost sounds like waves breaking in Malibu or Marin County. High minded, sitting down guitar music without an egghead edge, this is great stuff for people looking for a much needed audio getaway. Well done.
