Why do we like this?

This is zone-out music. It's ten minutes of sonic delay that's at once eerie, haunting, and uplifting — a sort of patient catharsis. Best listened to either casually or intensely as a solo experience, or a soundtrack to beautiful scenery. The album art is, after all, a photo the artist shot from the deck of the boat while listening to this track in headphones.

If you like Sigur Ros, this one is for you.

Mike Calore is the man behind Solar Keys, a producer based in San Francisco. He describes his music as "psychedelic ambient analog drone." That's about right, I'd say. "Museo" is the title track off his 2011 EP, Museo. He released his first EP, Repas de fête, on Bandcamp in March 2011 and has since released four more, the most recent, Midnights & Mornings, in July 2012 — all available for free download here.

His productions are 100% analog (gotta love that). So it's appropriate of him to have declared "Museo" his "love letter to Bob Moog" on SoundCloud. The track opens with deep synths, drawn out into a slow crescendo, layer upon layer. By the end, I'm completely immersed in the sounds, lost in it.
