Ultimate relaxed AOR.
Singer with Lincoln AOR phenomenon Strangeways, Ian James Stewart demonstrates his endless talent with these 13 hypnotically relaxing songs.
This quality chilled album also features guest vocalist and musician Robert Wyatt.
Close your eyes and you'll feel like you've been transported to the blues clubs of the Deep South, the thought-provoking mellow songs infused with rock, perfectly blending with Ian's distinct vocals.
Issues like war, politics and love are covered, as well as a tribute to jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker.
Most tracks are long, with just one under four minutes. But time is not important: songs like the title track Junk DNA, the hypnotic Phosphorus and the thoughtful If This Is Life are meant to be listened to with your feet up and a glass of whisky or wine. Brilliant.
