Wes Imel – Rickshaw Driver

Here’s one of those 17-minute CD-Rs that also happens to be one of the most delightful pieces of sonic poetry to grace my speakers all year. Featuring 3 gorgeous and glacially paced slow jams from Chicago sound-master Wes Imel, Rickshaw Driver is said to be a “‘psycho-electro-acoustic tone poem about the communality of the global human spirit”. For those of us who are less concept driven, believe me when I tell you – this thing simply sounds amazing. It’s a record tailor-made for early mornings – a veritable antidote to Monday morning blues – carefully unfolding into its own universe of positivity. To be honest, though, I’m just listening to this thing all the time. Enormously recommended.
