One of my first posts

on this blog

covered an aerial

music video

of a man floating peacefully

in the crystal clear tropics.

The drifting man was artist

Gabriel Garzon Montano

and the song is called


Most recently, Montano released

his album Jardin,

and "Trial"

is the opening track.

How fitting that he titled

this album “Garden”,

considering the whole project,

which was released

through Stones Throw Records,

sounds like being outside,

surrounded by vines and ferns,

palm trees and coconut juice.

Songs titles like “Sour Mango”

and “Fruitflies”

and “Lullaby”

give you an idea

of where this album

is taking you.

Jump in, I promise

it'll be a beautiful getaway.
