"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Hanseatic redeployment

The perfect shimmering depth charges of Pop Ambient 10's Sound of one lip kissing may indeed be the best ever
Marsen Jules track. But the lush enveloping & breathy accumulations of the new Yara & recent Lazy Sunday Funerals remasters on Oktaf (stream both in full below, including three bonus tracks for trainspotters like LMYE) run it pretty close at times - fairly flawless voicings of the stately, reflective MJ sound...

In some moods I might think it'd be improved (refined, even) by a little less perfection, a bit more grit & urgency, or extremity. Maybe. At its weakest it can be cloying.

But ultimately that's a prescription for something else, another music from outside
the distinct, hermetic Jules/Juhls universe.
