Artist – Album: Eluvium - Copia
Released: 20th February 2007
Sounds Like: Watching the sunrise from a luscious green meadow. Kind of like the cover art.
Eluvium’s Copia is one of the most soothing and beautiful albums I’ve ever heard. Bold statement I know...
This album sounds like a sunny afternoon canal trip in a hired boat, sipping on cooled beers with your a bunch of your best mates. It is like a luxurious Radox bath just for your ears. It is what you would get if you put the films Harvey, Babe and Life is Beautiful into a blender and then poured the results into a CD shaped cast. It’s like when your birthday lands on a Saturday. It’s the same as when the clocks go back and you have an extra hour in bed. It sounds like walking in a meadow with your sweetheart, gazing at the fluffy clouds in the sky and picking up forget-me-nots. It’s the aural equivalent of Soothers. For any lady readers that I may or may not have, it sounds like that feeling you get when you’ve shaved your legs and then get under a nice soft quilt. Or so I’m lead to believe.
I could go on...
