Hudson Wind Meditations

Lou Reed

This is like the opposite of Metal Machine Music: four pieces, two of them in the half-hour range, of music for tai chi and meditation, a practice Reed has followed for a few years. Formally it’s ambient: heavy on low end, floating atmospherics, and a faint pulse. As an artist, Lou Reed is a constant surprise.
