Listeners seeking to replicate a relaxed and lounge-y vibe in their living rooms are lucky to have the Late Night Tales series of artist-compiled mix CDs. This second mix from the duo Air -- which shares a few tracks with their 2005 compilation for the series -- is an intriguing offering that posits the Band ("I Shall Be Released"), Robert Wyatt ("P.L.A."), Elliott Smith ("Let's Get Lost"), and even Ravel ("Pavane pour une Infante Defunte") as "chillout" music. And they're right -- this collection flows effortlessly, radiating quiet beauty.
