- Marconi Union: A Lost Connection
If you liked Distance

For the unknowing:
Marconi Union is an easy-listening beat driven duo from Manchester, UK. Its friendly, listenable, pleasantly rhythmic, sometimes dubby, usually with guitar, synth pads, a good dose of melody and a smattering of quirky little sounds. It's well-constructed music, and flows in a predictable and non-grating way. Shortish (5-7 minutes) tracks. I think of it as chill music that could easily have pop vocals over the top, and can be imagined behind many films. It's certainly heading towards ear-candy, but remains interesting enough for repeats. Great as non-distracting background music, despite the beats. Excellent for the car where you want something attractive, with movement, but not annoying/distracting. A tad on the pretty side for many deeper ears. Quality stuff though if this style is your cuppa tea.http://www.marconiunion.com
