Year-End Sounds

A seasonally appropriate track by Carbonates on Mars

The sheer glisten of “Warm Tranquility” by Carbonates on Mars suggests it almost immediately as holiday music, as year-end background sounds suitable to the fulcrum-like moment when one year slows considerably, almost to a halt, so as to ease transition to the next. It’s all gentle lulls and bright swells, a full 10 minutes of peace — “peace” often being what people mean when they use the words “silence” or “quiet.”

Track originally posted for free download at soundcloud.com/carbonates-on-mars. Carbonates on Mars is Gareth Farmer of Walsall, Great Britain, more from whom at twitter.com/gazzle71.

    This is my monday afternoon soundtrack. I am in love with the warm sound it has. It is actually heartwarming and it reminds me of a sunny late November afternoon with all those leaves which turned into all shades of red and yellow. I can listen to it for hours. Amazing work.
