Track of the Night: Home 1, by Dubconscious

I hope you’re relaxed, because this track might cause you to space out even more. Super-spacey dubbiness prevails in this tune by the reggae group Dubconscious, and were it not for the vague wispy reggae guitar, you wouldn’t be faulted for thinking it borders on downtempo chill.

This song seems to lay claim to so much of the aural spectrum, and then uses it extremely frugally. The result is a meandering, but very precise soundscape. It reminds me of those very warm summer nights after a scorcher of a day – everything is moving slowly, purposefully, but without too much exertion.

Another good one by these guys is titled Ecclesiastes, off the album These Days. It’s much more recognizable as reggae.
