LP tracks show of a rock sub-genre I am calling ‘coasting’ – that is, tracks where the artist lets space permeate the track a little more than usual, giving them a smooth groove feel. One of the things I learned this show was that many of the tracks that follow this model end in a fade out. I think there are many great tracks you will want to hear, though I will especially call out the Ray Alexander Technique track in the second hour. Looking through the cuts, I have to say there is nothing here I would NOT steer you to if you were sitting in the room with me.
