    I know I only heard this once but it doesn't come close at all to Moon Safari.

    it's such a nostalgic album ,something that takes me back to when i was younger,and used to stay at my room all day after school listenin to music on the radio and this song came on ("distractions") and being distracted as i am,i only started listenin to it carefuly after a couple of seconds,where i missed the name of the artist....and it kept haunting me,for years - until this one day at work,i've accidently found it online - so i put it on repeat for the entire month....

    There are many downtempo/chill/ambient albums before and after this one, but there's something about SImple Things as a whole that I can't describe. Studying, stoned, or sexy-ing it up, this album certainly plays well focused-in on or in the background.

    the tag 'British air' is totally justified. sounds way too much air-like...
