Napalm Dan
Stoked to try to ski one more time before it goes up to 10 degC on Sunday. Neat sounds. The beginning of this tune was giving me a bit of the Floating Points/Pharoah Sanders collab vibe, but it's gradually gotten pretty busy.

Hi Pete, thanks for listening. The styles change weekly on this program, with the MO being uncommon sounds to excite your ears.
