Review: Sound Echo Location – Honeyroot

Genre: Ambient Electronica

When this music plays, everything in my room takes on an intangibly beautiful sheen. Suddenly its sunset at Café Del Mar, a salty breeze through my hair; Then it’s a sudden calm, resonating through a New York apartment, high above the bustle of traffic. Damn, if only life had ambient music playing in the background all the time.

Honeyroot is Glenn Gregory and Keith Lowndes, and Sound Echo Location is their first Just Music album, released in 2005. I’ve taken a particular liking to Track 06, Falling. It has a twinkly, dreamy quality, reminiscent of white flakes slowly drifting down a snow globe. Track 07, Sound Echo Location, comes in a close second for its unique driving sound and brave beats. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill. I’m happy with Track 05, State Of Mind, too.

Verdict? Makes a good companion for a quiet night.
