Lisa Benway It's difficult to choose, but if I have to pick one, it's Deep Blue, followed veryclosely by Sula Guin. This is an amazing album, what a true joy!

What a magical journey, thanks to Devin T for recommending it!!! Favorite track: Deep Blue (feat Sasquin).

Little by little the night turns around Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn Lotuses lean on each other in yearning Under the eaves the swallow is resting Set the controls for the heart of the sun Over the mountain watching the watcher Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine One inch of love is one inch of shadow Love is the shadow that ripens the wine Set the controls for the heart of the Sun Set the controls for the heart of the Sun Witness the man who raves at the wall Making the shape of his questions to Heaven Whether the Sun will fall in the evening Will he remember the lesson of giving? Set the controls for the heart of the Sun Set the controls for the heart of the Sun Set the controls for the heart of the Sun

Afterworld was written and recorded during Australia’s coronavirus lockdown. It was a chance to do something different and take some risks. I wanted to create something with a bit more depth than my previous album, Eternal, which, in the spirit of fun, was thrown together quick and dirty. With Afterworld, I wanted to slow things down, breathe in the air, let the guest artists do their thing without interference and hopefully create some music that moves people. I hope I’ve succeeded.

To my ears, this album is unlike anything I’ve done since maybe Echo Other and Fall in the 2000s.

The album art is by Gilbert Williams, one of the pioneers of the 1970s visionary art movement which evolved hand in hand with the New Age music movement before it went ultra-cheesy. His art has graced the covers of many New Age albums as well as Crosby Stills & Nash and his artwork is again in demand with a new appreciation and reissue of many classic electronic New Age albums. The stunning 2014 double album release, I Am The Center (New Age Music In America, 1950-1990), from Light in the Attic records put both New Age music and Gilbert back on the map. I was thrilled that Gilbert let me use his magnificent 1989 painting ‘Homeward Travelers’.

about

All India Radio Hobart, Australia

Since1998. I play mostly ambient music. Sometimes spacey and cosmic like Pink Floyd, sometimes electronic and chilled. Wired magazine: "has mashed the ambient-hop signatures of DJ Shadow, Tortoise and Thievery Corporation with the instantly recognizable guitar soundtracking of Ennio Morricone and Angelo Badalamenti.... capable of floating listeners to galaxies far, far away." ... more
