Not sure about you guys, but for me, Wednesday is the most stressful day of the week. And if something annoying has to happen, it always happens on Wednesday. I don’t know why. It’s like one of those weird random things that always happen in Murakami’s books. But I digress.
As you can guess, my nonsensical aversion towards this particular day translates into another excuse to search for more chilling music. Today, Electronic artist Hino Hikari and his new track are exactly what I need: Gekkō yoku is a pleasant number where Ambient elements serve as background for a slow but pleasant progression, with delicate piano notes and chords intertwining with a distant low-fi beat. Instead of looping notes and passages, the track almost sounds like a calm improvisation; coupled with its reasonable length, the result is a pleasant listen that constantly keeps the interest up instead of anesthetizing the listener with excessive repetition.
Very nice track. Listen below.
