next up is a mellow, shimmery, hazy, nostalgia-tinted track, Open Rhythms from LA-based alt rock outfit Bodies Of Water {chiefly Meredith Metcalf & David Metcalf} off their latest album "Twist Again" (2011).

Open Rhythms evokes the slowly dwindling golden rays of late afternoon sunlight, its rich warmth washes over you with its languorous, halcyon, 70s California vibe, one feels slightly groggy while listening to it, a blissful intoxication, as if from soaking up too much sun, your squinting eyes seeing things with a fuzzy, browny-red tinge, too dazed to move, shadows have descended, as the sun sets, leaving you shivery. Metcalf's mellow, wistful vocals et reverb-glimmering harmonies drift over the laid-back, funky, disco-tinged track, her voice is reminiscent of Christine McVie's {Fleetwood Mac}, enjoy!

i really dig the evocative cover image, it is very Bressonian.
