I don’t mean a music artist literally getting in your general path and making you stop, but a genuine sit-down moment, when you’ve looked up from whatever you were doing and sank into the music. Even gone the extra mile and shut your eyes for a few.
If this rarity of music excellence has happened to you, let me know when and the artist, because if it’s no one I’ve heard of before, I will certainly know about them from your perspective!
For me, it’s any thought-provoking mellow hip hop with its slacken grooves, relaxed bass and lush lyricism that melts when spoken. I remember this happened when I listened to Loyle Carner for the first time. Oddly enough, it also happens with any jazz experimental that drives off into a tangent of solo ingenuity. Which, again, makes me melt. Anything that is butter music, essentially.
Thanks all. Have a great weekend.
