This Emanuele Errante album is Worth It.

There's a song on here called "Counterclockwise".

Since it's short I'll post my review here in full, but if you like flashier graphix and linx you can also read this review of Emanuele Errante's Time Elapsing Handheld at PopMatters.

Emanuele Errante is one chill Italian and he makes soundscapes that some (read: press release) would describe as “experimental”, though the exact hypotheses and methods governing his experiments remain obscure. “Obscure”, fortunately, is a descriptor that doesn’t apply to Errante’s gentle electro-acoustic music, structured as it is with familiar meters and chords that slake a subliminal and probably universal human thirst for normalcy, relaxation and spa treatments; complex major and minor sonorities suspended over the unusual, but not outlandish, duration of early rap singles; and static swatches of ambience that threaten constantly to deteriorate into rainstorm sound effects. Wisely, they never do. Lovely. Tangerine Dreamy.
