Day of Life

Day of Life by Bernward Koch

For his latest, Koch turns his keyboards to soundscapes that each represent a baker’s dozen of days where you get to do what you want in peaceful surroundings without a care in the world. With themes that feel like drifting and floating that might makes you feel like Huck Finn drifting down the Mississippi away from his troubles if he was doing  it today (you wouldn’t have had music like this 150 years ago, come on), this is a first class audio getaway that won’t do anything less than help you recharge the batteries. Dandy stuff to open the ears and mind with.

Daytime Dreamer

Daytime Dreamer by Omar Akram

After copping a Grammy for his third record Echoes of Love, Omar is back with a full-on sonic assault to make sure he does it again. Not exactly pop, he does turn it up a notch loading the new age deck with pop and jazz smarts, keeping it buoyant, upbeat and winkingly sassy. This isn’t massage or healing music, this is listening music that anyone with a jazz lite bone in their body will love. Check it out.

AquaEssence: An Ocean of Calm

AquaEssence: An Ocean of Calm

A new age record that sounds like a [Ennio] Morricone soundtrack? Strange but true. If you can imagine Morricone at his most peaceful, impressionistic best, you get what Amberfern’s tribute to the ocean is all about. How’s that for a work around? The multi-instrumentalist delivers the goods here with a set that you would want to slip your massage therapist as a gift when her music shelf needs some updating.

Path of the Divine

Path of the Divine by Rajendra Teredesai

A lot of times, when a soundtrack producer wants something exotic for an underscore, they seem to hint at material like this, but hearing this recording makes you realize by how much they miss the boat. Not a typical new age/healing record, Teredesai transposes ragas for bamboo flute taking them someplace else entirely. With some electronic help to round out the sound, this collection of mind music is the gateway to some faraway place you imagine so it doesn’t matter how accurate your visions are.

Stillness: A Collection

In an increasingly noisy world, can a collection called “Stillness” be over looked? Probably not. A meditative album with cuts pulled from artists new and vintage at the label, it’s a well tracked, themed showcase that has audio getaway stamped all over it. Never drippy or exploitative, this is a set for people serious about getting their equilibrium back after one too many hits in the head, psychic or otherwise. Yep, it’s a spa afternoon for your head.
