Here is a little 10 minute sampler. If you like folk meets jazz meets beats then…

… then The Golden Apples totally recommends these. They might just be the best thing you hear all year.  Beautiful and Beautiful 2. Phil Most Chill AKA Soulman creates super mixtapes over at his blog THAT REAL SCHITT – mainly they are beat-influenced but in 2009 and 2010 Phil started to take side-trips to somewhere else way out there that is ‘Beautiful’ and full of space for the music and we think that you will want to go there with him… you really will.. no tracklistings but that just makes the listening experience even better for that magical listening moment … we have re-upped them here at the Golden Apples to help spread the word… send your love to Soulman over at his blog and beg him for some more of this….Claude
