Night Tides Picks for Top Ten Albums of 2009

Night Tides host Renee Blanche shares her favorite contemplative instrumental & electronic music albums released in 2009.

A Note from Renee Blanche, host of Night Tides

Night Tides had another exceptional year in music from new artists who made the cut to the already established artists who continue to compose with the "wow" effect. Speaking of the "wow" effect, CD numero uno for 2009 did just that and more. Labeled the "Pan-Cultural music for a new Eon", AO Music's CD "Twirl" brought it to the table with a mighty lion's roar! Bravo AO Music!
