sunday morning music: Rainbow Dome Musick

Sunday morning music is a recurring feature where we attempt to cure the hungover, dehydrated and those still battling Saturday night excess. This week there is no doubt in my mind that you, you indulgent bastard, will be saved from your hedonistic ways by a single song. A bold statement, yes, but seriously, you will be. I guarantee it.

Intended for inclusion at 1979's "Festival of the Mind, Body and Spirit" in London, as part of the Rainbow Dome exhibit (a healing room with crystals and other super heady shit to purify your mind, body, etc), Steve Hillage's Rainbow Dome Musick is an twinkling ambient masterpiece sure to sooth your aches and pains. Don't let the ultra-headiness of Rainbow Dome Musick dissuade from getting it on with Steve Hillage, as this record transcends all new age stereotypes and is the musical equivalent of transcending space and time. The album is composed of 2 side long tracks, with "Garden of Paradise" taking up the A-side and "Four Ever Rainbow" the B-side. They're long, delightful and soothing, the perfect dose of wellness for your ailing Sunday morning blues.
