Take it slooooow. Nev Cottee returns to Aficionado with a timeless piece of sun drenched balearic brilliance. "If I Could Tell You" is the perfect audible escape pod to dimensions of maximum chill. Throw this record on and forget about your 21st century problems. Just let Nev Cottee melt away your worries with healing, kaleidoscopic waves of sound. Nev basically sounds like a modern day Lou Reed with his delivery (think "Perfect Day"), and the backing arrangement is simply perfect. If you didn't tell me this was a record from 2015, I would easily believe it was some impossible to find 60's/70's cosmic gem. Instrumental on the flip. Recommended for balearic and cosmic lovers out there.
