Sonos - Primare I30 - Kef LS50
Ray LaMontagne - Gossip in the Grain
Meaghan Smith -The Cricket's Orchestra
Both stunningly good albums i discovered by google well mastered CD's recommended by the same person.
I hope they bring you as much listening pleasure as they have to me enjoy!
Both available on Spotify.
Thanks for the nodd on Meaghan Smith... excellent!
Glad you like her it was aimed at you! (only just found out how to do the quote thing)
I must admit Ray LaMontagne is my favourite from the Slow atmospherical Sarah to the more upbeat fun Hey Mama. brilliant.
Spotifiy did not have the album you you posted about but had an EP and new you would like Meaghan Smith she is also from Canada.
Listing to your Passenger, Flight of the Crow as i type, liking the hamoneys strings etc Cheers. What superb way to discover music.
Beats looking at reveiws forums on kit choosing an upgrade well actually i lie!! Great fun
Yep, all good stuff!
When the sun turns black is my favourite Ray LaMontagne album.

Lovely record, great sound, but a little to polite for me. Reminds me of Enya! But thank you.
When the sun turns black by Ray LaMontagne not available on spotify but listen to 30s snipets on his website again prefering Gossip in the Grain.
A later album so presumably a progression (depending on your taste) its a fuller album more layers more complex sounds.
Its a bit like Jake Bugg (18 old singer songwriter guitar player) its a good album but sounds a bit thin, you just know if he keeps it all together his next album will be outstanding.
You have some very nice kit by the way!!
Sonos ZP80 - Leema Pulse MKII - PMC DB1i
ZP100 - Mordaunt Short MS 3.10
Play 5 Audioengine A2 Pioneer PDP436SXE
Marc Et Claude - I Need Your Lovin'
Big Generater Yes
No probs Colin... not sure about the Enya tag though.
If you like things a little edgyer try some of the following
Laura Veirs and Saltbreakers – Saltbreakers
Ingrid Michaelson – Girls and Boys
Catherine Feeny – Hurricane Glass
Ben Howard – Every Kingdom
Passenger – All The Little Lights
Lisa Hannigan – Passenger
Tina Dico – A Beginning, A Detour, An Open Ending
Hope there's something there a bit more to your taste.
Thanks for the comments on the kit too... taken me many a year to get to this point.
