A free album for everyone: Skintone – In Slow Motion

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Long ago, I borrowed a CD of then-contemporary ambient music from my artist Uncle Brian. It contained some really great tracks from bands like The Orb and Groove Armada. The song I liked the best off it, "Lennox Avenue Butterfly", was by an artist I had never heard of before, Skintone.

I did some digging online and found out that the track was taken from the debut and only album, "In Slow Motion", of a short-lived Irish electronic music duo. The quaint record company page, still hosted on IOL web storage years later, led me to the producer Brian Kelly. I discovered that on his website he had the album in full available for download! I've re-hosted it here for posterity.

Their music falls somewhere between ambient and Orbital-style electronica. I hope you enjoy the album as much as I have, over the years. Brian was very appreciative of my previous efforts, so I'm sure he won't mind me re-hosting the album here...
