Ott's Skylon is a marvellous downtempo album of warmth and positivity, infused with a healthy dose human spirit to make for a timeless record that probably remains my favorite Ott album to this day.
Hugely influential in the psychedelic scene through his constant presence on the festival circuit with his live band, Ott is a true master at what he does and where he manages to take us with his music. Skylon in particular is a record that most people will enjoy listening to, even if it's only playing in the background and they are otherwise not consciously aware fond of psychedelic music to relax to.
This album is fantastic to let the day come to an end, to kick back and to let go of the constant mode of thinking and rationalizing, especially if you find yourself in a lot of stress currently. Let the man take you on a ride of ease and tranquility through a marvellous selection of tracks and put your worldly worries on hold for a while to find the strength to tackle them anew again.
If you dig the music, you can buy Skylon off of Ott's official bandcamp site
Needless to say this music will also be hugely impactful under the influence of THC, at the risk that you may fall into sweet naps on your couch ;)
