People who know me think I’m a pretty laid back guy, but lately that’s not really the case. I’ve been having anxiety dreams for the past two months that wake me up every 1.5 hours. So every now and again, I have to make time for myself to chill the fuck out. Anytime a new Tender Mercy track comes out, I’m able to find that time. Luckily for me, Leave Little Room is not just a track, and not another short EP, — this is a complete album full of chill jams.
Leave Little Room is not a huge stretch from former Tender Mercy releases like the highly recommended It Was You and Sacred Sphinx. Each of these albums feel like a daydream or trance in which a fantastic beast (or Mark Kramer?) comes out of the woods and guides you down a dirt path to a creek where the fairies and unicorns hang out. Once there, you can finally relax and enjoy the space provided.
The most astonishing thing about the meditation that Tender Mercy provides is that nothing is rushed. You’re given plenty of time to enjoy each note for what it is. Almost nothing else in 2018 is treated that way; that’s why Leave Little Room is a must listen for your health.
