Park Avenue Music
I think it's really hard to make electronic music sound organic - so easy to be seduced by precision, perfectly cutting a sequence of beats - so easy to head down the cold path of techno body machine music. Hard to create something alive and warm, something you can embrace and hold. But the Park Avenue Music duo of Wes and Jeanette manage it. It's a quiet affair. One with washes of electronic sound flowing into melody, rhythms that melt and mutate from regular form to wandering, and Jeanette's vocals that ooze between words and sound. It's a precious organism, and one that I seem to invite in again and again. If you haven't heard their album "to take with you" yet, maybe you should - it was my favorite album from 2001.
