Morcheeba – Big Calm
Here’s a $3 absolute frickin’ score from Sonic Boom. Somewhere along the line, I misplaced/sold/lost my copy of this, and I was absolutely thrilled to find it so cheap on this trip. This is the return of an old friend. I knew every note and move. What a record!
The 5th Annual Toronto Expedition Series, Part 34 (CD)
I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard this album, but it’s a ton. We lived in Montreal 1999-2001, and this was everywhere. Supreme Beings Of Leisure, Massive Attack, Portishead, etc… and Morcheeba was a big part too.
Big Calm was first of theirs I heard, and it became my favourite of theirs. That sound, that feel, that drift into calm and cool, bluesy and smooth and sweet… Absolutely tuneful, fucking brilliant.
Fully recommended. Get it!
