The natural beauty and uniqueness of this following recording is something that has been much needed in this industry for a long time, Malibu, Point Magu by Palm Reading is a breath taking, yet peace filled new release by the artists, and our first location is Malibu, Point Magu.

Let me give you a little back story here to set the scene, Palm Reading is a musical project by Skooby Laposky and Charles Copley, and inspired by plant life, the natural environment, and bathed in the traditions of ambient and mindfulness music. This new construct is simply idyllic, they also contain some of the best field recordings I have heard for many a year.

White Sage (Salvia apiana) is our first exploration, the guitar and the harmonics that flow like waves from this piece are utterly sublime, one could easily just drift away in a total blissful reverie, in fact I have now listened to this composition three times and I feel so calm and tranquil, it would be very easy to leave this arrangement on permanent repeat.

White Sage (Salvia apiana) Interlude is our next mood filled creation, the gentle and balanced fluency here, create the perfect bridge of serenity to guide us with respect, to our last offering entitled Laurel Sumac (Malosma laurina), a composition that has a slight hovering intent about its construction, especially in the early stages, and at well over eight minutes is our longest track off of this quite delightful location, the ambience offered up here is something not just to accept, but to dive headlong, and deep into.

Malibu, Point Mugu by Palm Reading is a wonderful concept, and a most worthwhile project; I cannot wait to hear more, the mix of acoustic and electronic synthesised sounds are quite honestly some of the most transcendent tones I have heard for ages, and we must add a most humble and sincere thank you to the plants for their Biodata, this locational release is certainly recommended by me, and would truly be a wonderful addition to any meditational practise, in fact I am going to give that a go right now.
