aquarium drunkard turquoise wisdom

Our compadre Zach Cowie, aka Turquoise Wisdom, returns to AD with some mellow sounds to begin 2014. Last year Cowie posted a tune every weekday from his record collection — all of which can be found and downloaded at Play It As It Lathes. Cowie guests on the Aquarium Drunkard show, this Friday, on SIRIUS XMU.

Dig in to Angels In The Abstract, after the jump, and keep up with Cowie, here: @turquoisewisdom.

Thanks for these great mixes– they are golden. Let’s get physical!
