Brian Eno - Reflection

Released promptly on January 1st, Brian Eno's new album Reflection is a beautiful, pensive and meditative way to start 2017.

Reflection is a searching piece of ambient music set over 54 minutes (or four sides depending on your format). The most fascinating thing we've found so far on our repeat listens is it's ability to not so much effect moods, but perhaps to enhance them? It provides a contemplative space to look back at recent times with anguish as much as forwards with optimism.

We are admittedly really into ambient music and Brian Eno, but this has honestly been the perfect way to start 2017.
