I normally listen to Villalobos at night, but I'm listening to Thé au Harem d'Archimède in the heat and it's ace. perfect match.
makes sense - I always thought mnml sounded great in the sun, and he's king of minimal.
the space takes the atmosphere of the physical surroundings. and the sound palette always feels like it's taken from his South American youth. conga rhythms, waxy leaves, taught strings, hissing & chirruping insects, teeming humidity...
and yesterday evening I was listening to Bizarre Ride II: The Pharcyde, and everyone knows jazzy early 90s hip-hop is made for summer.
