Various Artists Nik Weston Nu [New] Style Vol. 3
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Nuro
Nik Weston turns away from the land of the rising sun for this selection of global goodies on the laid-back tip. Leeds, UK's The New Mastersounds sets the mood, with organic organ swells and gently jazzy guitar making a nice nest for Corinne Bailey Rae's soulful croon. There's some tasty snare work on Rob Scott's "Fallin,'" but some tracks, like Ernesto's "Blame It on Your Melody," are just a bit too smooth. Still, this is a solid comp for an easy evening on the chaise lounge.
