The Friday OT: Ben Lukas Boysen; Golden Times 1

Ben Lukas Boysen’s 2016 album ‘Spells’ has so many good tracks that it’s difficult to pick a fave, but what I know is that every time Golden Times 1 starts my attention is dragged away from whatever else I am doing. Therefore, it gets the nod.

A simple melody and chord progression, while beautifully delivered from the start, gradually evolves into something deeper and more complex, then disintegrates, all in a way that you hardly notice happening the first time around. This is a fascinating piece of music. Youtube here.
