Holiday, by Port St. Willow, is probably one of my favorite late-night albums of the last few years. It’s a little less ambient than some of the albums I’ve posted, but the heavy reverb on vocals and instrumentation definitely lend to an ambient quality in the music. And you can’t beat the album art on this one! Port St. Willow is the music of Nick Principe, and his songs are full of falsetto vocals, great atmospherics, minimal drums, and mildly distorted synthesizers. It’s one of my top 5 go to albums when I’m really trying to clear my head and stay focused on work. If this is new to you, I hope you enjoy it.
Paste Magazine has a really great review of the album, and you can read it here.
