Like running through a field filled with blooming flowers while also dreaming about the stars and your past. This album makes me want to write, makes me want to live, makes me want to breathe deep. Beautiful, percussive post rock blended with amazing strings and touching vocals. Please make a million more albums so I can listen to them constantly, thank you.
Favorite track: Moonshine.

We believe that music online should be free and accessible to people. What's the point in having a track dangling around in the expanse of the internet and not in people's phones, iPods and car stereos, where it's heard the most. Thus, we give you Southern Skies Motel, absolutely free to download, in the audio format of your choice. We only ask that you put them on to your media players, show them to your friends, and trip out on it!
Southern Skies Motel is the second solo album by Akash Murthy, under the banner of Farfetch'd, but nothing like its former release. SSM evolves around progressive acoustic and ambient music, the subspace of whose genre remain virtually unexplored. It's an embodiment of rich acoustic compositions and organic soundscapes which float, jangle, collide and linger delicately on the precipice between inevitable entropy and inspiriting hope.
