A beautiful, thoughtful record that has both folk and jazz elements. Perfect for making breakfast to on a Saturday morning.

Jim Sullivan

This is probably my favorite record of all time. It features the unbelievably talented Wrecking Crew, backing Jim Sullivan, and the album is shrouded in mysterious disappearance that, to this day, remains unsolved. I'm certain that this album was used to signal aliens to come take Jim Sullivan back to his home planet.

So many catchy folky, jazzy gems on Carole King's first record. It transports me to Topanga Canyon circa 1967. Not a bad place to be if you ask me?

Luzmila sings in her native Quechua language and hits bird-like notes that put even Kate Bush and Joanna Newsom to shame.

Quietly transportive, atmospheric soundscapes. As soothing as a cool hand (Gigi) on your forehead after a fever dream (Charles). Listen to while drinking a glass of water, staring out the window. Self care in ambient form.
