Maed - Untouchable Stories

Maed is the nujazz/trip-hop work of Poland's Michal Lewicki, I've been digging his '08 album, 'Untouchable Stories'. Maed starts many tracks with a sample that sets the tone for the rest of the song -- usually in the form of jazzy/downtempo beats. This doesn't mean Maed's work is predictable; some songs could be the rain on your window or the storm just ahead -- whatever the case, the album flows nicely with enough surprises to keep your attention, but isn't so demanding as to not let you unwind.

It's alright to chill, just
don't sleep -- put those free ears to use.
