Ambient Meditations Vol. 14 – Shiny Objects (OM Records)
AM's 14th episode welcomes Shiny Objects, aka Christopher J. Smith, the founder of legendary San Francisco label OM Records. Smith has been in the downtempo hustle from day one and has dropped a brand new album under his newish alias Shiny Objects entitled Ambient Downtempo Works which comes out today (August 21, 2020). The album is reminiscent of classic downtempo sounds but brings a contemporary take that feels essential in these trying times. So grab something cold to drink, find a quiet place to recline and take a lush downtempo journey with Shiny Objects.
