Yes that's their typical sound. It is pretty - they only have a few records out. There is a label in Taiwan "Wind Records" that specializes in this kind of indigenous/new age thing.
Well, I need to look them up then. I'm really taken with the song you posted!
Yes, I like that cloud-hidden faraway sound - my favorite record is "Silent Sky". It is on Discogs. Maybe Spotify, I don't know. For some reason I can't figure I can't get the Wind Records site to load.
Hang on, here is a link to their page at Wind Records in Taiwan

The Blue Nile.

Many thanks for all the info!
Richard Sanderson - "Reality".....in the French movie La Boum this song plays like every 10 minutes.... then in La Boum 2 there is another one called "Your Eyes".
Slade, The Ramones, Ratt, Warrant, Leo Sayer.
Ryan Adams has some very soft songs, "I'm Sorry and I Love You" from his last album is very soft
Some of the 4AD bands - Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Dif Juz, etc. would probably qualify. Kitaro, Shadowfax, Ackerman, et al. I suppose I'm thinking of a certain melodic lushness that mainly lacks hard edges, if that makes sense.
I'd returned to this thread tonight b/c I realized I forgot to list Norah Jones in my earlier post on pg 4. I had a number of them to list, but I should have remembered Norah as I just recently purchased The Fall to add to Feels Like Home, already a part of my collection.

For me the softest music, Tangerine Dream.
I have some of their early music, but mostly more recent material.
Nowadays I must be leaning slightly away from say Nirvana, although I love both
Batdorf and Rodney
Big Blue Hearts
in addition to many already mentioned
Seals and Croft
Aphex twin( stone in focus)
I was going to put cannibal corpse or Death as a joke but you beat me to it.
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes - Released June 2008
I really like Batdorf & Rodney and Venice. Don't know the other two. Seems like it would be worth me looking them up.
Your idea of soft is a bit different to mine.
only one release ( unfortunately) from each. Not sure if they can be found but they were each superb. Imho.
There really are man for me - never got into the head banging music of the ‘70s that much. I always preferred artists that had melody and craftsmanship in their repertoire. Many of the hard rock/ acid rock bands I find to be quite pedestrian on both fronts.
