It's beautiful, and even though
I told you so, you know
We'd face survival, we're leaving lights on
We'll move or go on somehow

Looking like soldiers waiting to drown
And I'm not around no more
And looking at people that don't make a sound
When music's around, stay warm

And we've got no rhyme or no reason now
We've got the time of our lives now

It's seasonal, nobody knows
We'll make it known somehow
Just you and me, and we can see
Small machines and sunrise

Looking like soldiers waiting to drown
And I'm not around no more
Pictures of people that don't make a sound
When music's around, stay warm

And we've got no rhyme and no reason now
We've got the time of our lives now

Pictures of people that don't make a sound
When music's around, stay warm
And we've got no rhyme and no reason now

Looking like soldiers waiting to drown
And I'm not around no more
Lookin at people that don't make a sound
When music's around, stay warm

And we've got no rhyme and no reason now
We've got the time of our lives now

Oh, these vocals are awful!
Great track, but the weakness of Bonobo is that when there are no lyrics in his music, it gets boring too quickly.

See what you mean - doesn't have the same grip on me as Zola Blood. 1st track of the day today and pretty chilled as it goes :-)

The singing isn't a great addition at all in my opinion.
Also the track doesn't have something distinctive. It feels uninspired.
3 for me for now.
 
Agree it's pretty tame and uninspired (especially coming right off Shpongle, which was the running order I first heard it on), but it's pleasant and polished, for the most part, which makes it a 5 for me.
Sounds a lot like Zola Blood. I like it!

Thanks, too!
when i heard the intro to this tune i thought it was the tail end of the "Welcome to Radio Paradise" - in multi languages!

I thought what a neat and novel idea; "Welcome to Radio Paradise" in a few languages for more global inclusion.

It works!
A fresh sound to ease into the day,  
something new on RP. 
Going with 7. See if it grows.

Instrumentals can be nice, but I love Bonobo's tracks that feature Bajka on his Days To Come album. Maybe I'm just partial to women's voices in electronic music?

This track seems like a pretty major departure from his previous style. That's not to say I dislike it, but it almost feels like a different artist.

A lathe has nothing on this for sheer repetitiveness.

Nice.  Grew on me.  We'll see . . .
Quick 8 for the Bono Bo

Enjoyed that quite a bit, will start it off at a 7.
