Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd: Bordeaux

Tammy chills out to the sounds of Bordeaux

Robin Guthrie (a former Cocteau Twin) has collaborated with American avant-garde composer Harold Budd before, on the wondrous After The Night Falls / Before The Day Breaks albums in 2007. This is a more hesitant, restrained work, recalling Budd’s collaboration with Brian Eno on 1984’s The Pearl. It is supremely beautiful and relaxing and soothing, if maybe somewhat formless and less memorable than that earlier collaboration. Superior chill-out music.
