I am always on the hunt for good studying/background music. The past two years have been actually very good for this between The Boats, Clogs, Sigur Ros, Boards of Canada and Chihei Hatakeyama all releasing good acoustic/downbeat electronic records. There is another great addition for those looking for minimalist tunes in the new Portland based Grails record Black Tar Prophecies 1, 2, 3.

Grails also have a bit of mystery associated with them given that they "came into being after one of their founding members, Timothy Horner (the violinist) disappeared. Literally. After returning from a long European tour, Horner vanished, never to be seen again by the band. They have heard rumours that he sold his violin and is living on the streets, but as for being a member of Grails, that's over for good. Reeling from this loss, the band set about writing as a four-piece and have since constructed this, their deepest, darkest and finest record yet."

Mp3: Grails - "Erosion Blues"
