Green Fairy Grace For the New Year


Absente Absinthe from Paris France & Steven Wilson’s Grace For Drowning

New Years Pairing! Happy 2012 Everyone

Grace for Drowning is the second studio solo album by Steven Wilson, producer, songwriter, and frontman of Porcupine Tree. It was released by Kscope Music Records on September 26, 2011.[1] The album received a nomination in 54th Grammy Awards for Best Surround Sound Album.

“Grace for Drowning” on 180 gram vinyl certainly resides within my top 5 releases for 2011. It’s Progressive Rock, meets Jazz, meets electronica and it’s a sonically stellar album that you can truly get lost in. As for the first taste of the green fairy, well I found this to also have a truly stellar pallet for the senses. I think it’s a drink you either love or hate and not much room for anything in between. I really anticipated that I would only have one or two cocktails for the evening and then move on to something else but I actually enjoyed the absinthe throughout the evening.
