Free Music Sunday: Air – Sing Sang Sung

This week, I’m wrapping up a month of my favorite artists on Free Music Sunday with Air [m] [w],  a band that’s been on my playlists for nearly a decade since I picked up their classic debut album, Moon Safari.  Unlike the other bands featured this month who ranged from six to a whopping 23 members, Air is just two guys.  Despite being small in numbers, Air’s brand of ambient electronic trip-hop still manages to create grandiose soundscapes that also retain an intimate feel.

“Sing Sang Sung” is the second single released from the album, Love 2, which will be released on October 6.  Just like every new album from Air, the critics are wondering whether this new release will be the next Moon Safari. To me, however, that’s an absurd standard to use as a measuring stick.  Moon Safari was an all-time classic album and it’s no shame to “only” make one of those in a career.  If Love 2 matches up with efforts like Talkie-Walkie and Pocket Symphony, it’ll certainly be worth a listen or three.

From the early release singles, it seems like Air has another winner on its hands.  But just don’t take my word for it… go download Sing Sang Sung from Cities of the Plain and see for yourself.  Enjoy!
