WELCOME BACK!  So what do you like about it?  The groove?  The dreaminess?  I like that sizzling snapping  drum beat!
Nice instramental
Bonobo is cool in person as his music.

Nope. He's from Brighton, England.

Comments below get votes above 8, or so sayeth my glowing red sex-o-meter.  (You guys crack me up!) 
Yes yes yes! Bonobo is my jam... Especially as we're approaching the end of my work day. ALL of his music is fantastic, like this.
I wonder if Four Tet has anything to do with this song... sure sounds like them.....
Great groove - never heard of them but like it!
All of the below is wrong.
Sorta boring.
Cool tune with a nice groove.  Good chill-out stuff.
It's a dud

Sounds good to me. Better f*cking than fighting any day. And we'd all get a lot more sex which would help society chill out.

On a tangent to this, the Brit SF writer Brian Aldiss wrote, back in the 1961, a novella called The Primal Urge, about Brit society where everyone had to wear 'emotional registers' on their foreheads, metal discs which would glow increasing shades of pink and red when the person was sexually aroused. A fascinating, funny and wickedly satirical thought experiment, and worth a read IMO.
 
Wow. I remember reading Brian Aldiss back in the day. 

. . . maybe that is why I wear an illuminated red throbbing codpiece to show my level of arousal for Mrs Poacher.

(Oh, and Bonobo. . . a constant on playlists on our house - magnificent stuff!)

Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep. Good for background or if you sleep with music playing.
Hypnotic.

Once again You Tube has decreased productivity at my job. That was cute though.

Now and Zen, you need to search for subtleties. Good stuff.

I don't know why, but this track really hits the spot. If you like this I'd really recommend checking out Bonobo. The music is as tight as you like and the production superb. 
Blablabla....{#Meditate}

Freaking great!!{#Yell}
I dialed "1" for this sad Monkees!

Boooring!!!

Talk about creeping up on you: These guys have another song, Koto, that was used in a David Attenborough documentary called "Serpent." They strapped a camera to a python's back and filmed as it climbed a tree and ate a bunch of weaver birds.  Great footage and the song was burned indelibly into my brain for years. I never would've figured out who did it if it wasn't for RP (with a little help from last.fm).

Bono's alter-ego when tripping?

I like this kinda stuff.  Not sure how to rate it.  I like laid back groovy stuff.  *And anything that has to do with monkey like things.

Interesting article in New Yorker not long ago regarding bonobos. Evidently because they are studied almost exclusively in captivity, some question of whether the peace love hippee monkey thing is how they behave in the wild. As the article said, researchers wonder if having nothing to do all day what with living in a cage and being fed there is much to do but hang out and make love. Sort of like being in college.

Oh, fannypk, if you listened to old Peter Gabriel, you'd realize that dionysius wasn't trolling, just making a funny song quote reference.

"you can ape the ape / I know about that!"


This reminds me of that I am Kloot track thats in rotation...

Dose me dose me dose me. More Bonobo. More more more. :dance:
Isn't there some kind of oriental drink with little floating pieces of wheat in it called bonobo or something like that. . .either way this music reminds me of that. . . :lol: :sad:
I'm liking this...
Nice CD cover...boring song
This is really well thought out. Cool.
I spoke to Simon recently and when i mentioned he is played on here he said 'yeah i know, i listen to it' Cool.
this is the kind of music that keeps the monkey hitting the crack dose button.
The end of that song totally sounded like Tom Waits - Step Right Up was coming next.. Dire Straits..
like \'em or not, they create a unique sound, esp. on the radio . . .

I like this kind of music. To relax. But there's nothing greater than guitars and drums!

Yes, and it grosses me out to visualize same. Missed the song--actually, failed to notice it. Maybe that is for the best.

the song had possibilty until the drum (or drum machine) kicked in but still never went anywhere

I agree. Love the bar graph!

hmmm... didn't seem like it was 30min. long. ...as with all your comments you prove that you should stick to the lab work and shut up.physicsgenius wrote:
As with all music of this type, it goes from mellowly jammin' to sleepy to annoying in the space of about 90 seconds. Which is about 1/20th of the length of the song, typically.
I like the emotion this song emanates. Even without any changes, it doesn't come across as boring.
boring.........very boring............ :sleep:

Little fish, little fish, swimming in the water... Cool tune, likeable at least.
I like it. I don't know about calling it jazz in the first place... but that's me. Anyway, I enjoy it's laid-back beats which are relaxing but are not so repetitive that one is lulled into an immediate coma.

"Horns plus Jazz--Avoid."
Hmm. That's interesting advice. Somebody should let John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Louis Armstrong know.
From this to something off Cinematic Orchestra's Every Day album would work well. I think.
Always looking for new stuff, esp. in the trip-hop/downtempo area. This might be another one for me to scope out.

If you're into trip-hop, I highly reccommend this album. Nearly every track is of this caliber or better. Great chillout CD.

Oh yes. Ninja Tune (the record label) puts out a lot of great music like this. Thanks for playing it!
It's an okay song, but isn't that buzzing fly noise driving anyone else crazy?

Did you happen to click on and rate the right song? The one I just heard, really has no brass in it, except a modest tone near the end. Dude, I think you are having flashbacks. Ride it out with me, we will be ok by doing it together... :)

Reminiscent of Four Tet. I like so far.
