Quiet Space — #147 — Melatonia

I’ve been championing the music of Pausal for many years. Individually, Alex Smalley has released numerous works under his Olan Mill alias and Simon Bainton has released on Hibernate Records. Their seventh album, Melatonia, was recorded during a period of significant change and upheaval for both members of the band..

Enjoy this special mix, with a focus on this stunning new album.
