Music Moment: John Martyn, “Small Hours”

04 Jun


Just come home from a very long late shift. Back up at 6.30am tomorrow morning. Like a human perpetual machine i be….

so just a moment to put out this charming little nugget of ambient folk rock bliss from JOHN MARTYN. The story with this track (from his 1977 album, “One World”) was he recorded this in the very late hours outside his Cottage/recording studio by the edge of a small lake with the speakers positioned both on the shored and out in the water. It all adds to a track that just simply breathes. If you turn it up, you can even hear the wind rushing through the trees and the call of some waterfowl. It’s the perfect music to listen to on the looong summer nights that peole will defintiely be spending at Summer houses all across Iceland.
