Well, it’s the Winter Solstice and it wouldn’t be right to let this blessed day pass without recognition, so I’ve found a song about the sun…We started the day with rain, but those beams found their way in and it was a magical delight to see their golden arms outstretched over the fading day.. Today’s song is perfect in mind, body and spirit!
Sun Rays Like Stilts is a gorgeous, musing instrumental taken from Tommy Guerrero’s 2015 album, Perpetual. This record served as a continuation to his 2014 LP Perpteuum, which was exclusively released in Japan. The idea for Perpetual was (in Tommy’s words) “to strip the tunes down and create more of an atmosphere than being concerned with writing ‘songs’… The other idea [is] to abandon the damn computron and record everything on my Tascam 388 1/4″ 8 track tape machine. The limitations with an old tape deck were welcomed with open arms – … I gotta say this is one of my faves and hope people will connect with what I [am] trying to convey. Music is all about an emotional response for me… I hope it resonates with you in a positive way.”
Well, resonate it does! Sun Rays Like Stilts strips down the day to a calm meditation and when you sit back and let this wash over you, everything is broken down to softness and the weight of the day dissolves. Everything is peaceful and the senses are restored to calm…if only for a little while! I hope you enjoy…and if you want to hear the rest of the album, you can find that here!
🌞 HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE 🌞
