Concerto a Cinque op9n9 by Tomaso Albinoni off the Hallgrímskirkja H002 CD.
Radio Scotland on 810kHz.
Chapter & Verse from his latest LP...
..crispy sharp soul funk.
Interesting New Yorker piece on Prince...
Charles Mingus and his multi-eponymous "Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus" album.
[ Puchini - Tosca ]
E lucevan le stelle
Great recording, and apparently unique in featuring boy trebles instead of women as the piece was originally written.
I’ve had Rhianna on repeat for two days now. It never gets old. I need to go buy the CD and stop streaming the video from YouTube—this THX system does not do good things for Youtube audio.
Tac that 50 onto the sweet 100,000,000,000.00 c'monin' my way ;)
There's an awesome documentary movie of Keith Richards up on YouTube!
Keith Richards - Life (Documentary Movie) 1/6
Hopefully you can navigate your way to the other parts.
I'll wager the whole $100,000,000,000,050.00 Nick Shinn is a gonna watch every single one of 'em.
The album http://Days by Real Estate has been my favorite music discovery of the year so far.
Gamalan it is. I spelled it incorrectly
"Deep Night" and "Cool Struttin'" from Sonny Clark's "Cool Struttin'" 1958 LP.
Purple 1: Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze Live Beat Club Performance 1967
A man! (John;-)
I played that snippet just before crawling to bed and now I cannot sleep. Probably the first time I've been really scared by sound alone. It sounded like it was recorded in hell.
Any music that can create a feeling so strong in a person deserves our respect.
I don't want to stop typing: It will be dark when I turn this off and right now the blue light from my Macbook Pro is the only thing keeping me safe!
Saw them last week, here in T.O.
best (Finnish heavy metal cello) band ever.
Jelmar you should check out the knife if you haven't heard them. Check out their Deep cuts album. Of topic you should also have a look and give me some feedback on my new typeface in the making in the critique section;o)
Of course, Finland, like any other country, has a wide variety of musical genres that people enjoy.
In looking up modified versions of Christmas carols on YouTube that extolled Cthulhu, I found out about Hatsune Miko. And from Hatsune Miko, I found out about the Ievan Polkka. And clicking on related links led me to Kun Mun Kultani Tulisi.
When I first heard it, I mistakenly thought it must have been a traditional Irish song translated into Finnish, but no, it is an old traditional Finnish song (or an old traditional Finnish poem set anew to music by Loituna; I am not yet certain which one).
Vic One... do you have Nick Caves new album?
Seagulls on the roof top of the next door building.
Two Door Cinema Club
Today I picked up The National's new album High Violet from Cactus Music, my second-favorite Houston record store (favorite for new vinyl — Black Dog's better for secondhand). I've been listening to it on stream for a few weeks now, but I've never been so excited about the physical release of an album. This is outstanding.
Balada Conducatorolui - Taraf de Haidouks
Miles Davis bossa nova LP
There are honest type designers but there's probably more charlatans, I saw a poll in Forbes, it's the same with musicians.
I’ve had Rhianna on repeat for two days now.
that's what i said, breakin dishes. :P
but now i've moved on to "sealion woman" mmmmm.
Bruckner's 8th/Karajan, and also pulled the Heavy Vegetable, Frisbee CD out of a player after the move. Have not heard that in a while.
https:// – Nocturne, performed by Secret Garden. Nineteen years on, it’s still listenable.
Organ works from http://pykett.org.uk and http://sonusparadisi.cz.
This nice little bit of organ jam (The Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want"):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWmMGCBYd4M
You'll stop noticing the pedals clacking soon enough...
I just got home from a recording studio in Minneapolis, where British pianist Tony Hymas played 12 piano etudes by Debussy, flanked by Satie's Gymnopédies 1 & 3. This was a program of the Minnesota sur Seine Festival, a real gem of a music fest, from free jazz to hiphop to Breton jazz to Lorca songs to Ethiopian pop to Debussy/Satie and a few other stops in between.
Something about Thom Yorke and Flea performing together intrigued me!
But it takes a while to get into (which is good).
At the moment: Stephan Mathieu & Janek Schaefer - Hidden Name
Any more "ambient drone" lovers amongst the typophiles?
Some time back in this thread, I've already described my musical tastes at length. Here, I'll just briefly mention that I've directed my attention again towards what was perhaps my favorite of the Manos Hadjidakis compositions sung by Nana Mouskouri (it was also sung by Aliki Vougiouklaki (Αλίκη Βουγιουκλάκη) who performed it originally in a movie from 1960 and Harry Belafonte): Mes s'afti ti varka (or Mes tin varka)... Μες σ'αυτήν τη βάρκα.
In fact, Anna Vissi, who sang "Min ton rotas ton ourano" (the original song on which All Alone Am I was based) at the Love Radio concert, also sang this one, at the "Unplugged" concert in Cyprus.
Just got through a great experience on the shuffler...
and headed for another excellent 45 minutes or so...
Shakira's 'Tu' is running through my head since yesterday.
I listen to 4' 33". Again.
My daughter gave me a Deadmau5 CD for Xma5, and I play it when I'm driving.
Now she needs to get me a subwoofer for my birthday, so I can really impress pedestrians.
Purple 2: Prince - Purple Rain HQ
web radio: WNYC2
When I am in a creative crisis here is one thing that nearly always helps:
The sensitiveness of the Smashing Pumpkins!
Grobschnitt by Grobschnitt. Very lossy MP3. Terrible sound quality.
This Is Happening, LCD Soundsystem's new album, just started streaming on their website last week. It's been my go-to background music for design work.
Purple 3: Purple by Ken Nordine
Meltwater drops beating an impressive drummer's call.
Django Reinhardt at the moment. Love the guitar tone - so tinny.
Paul, did you see Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown with Sean Penn?
crazy bitch Amy Winehouse
and I have a crush on Elliot Smith. Sigh.
>"Vincebus Eruptum" Blue Cheer.
Love it. Also saw them 3 times.
If you like that check out Alice Cooper's first album. Out of control psychedelia, they were actually making fun of the hippies.
Purple 4: Deep Purple - Smoke On The Water HD 1973 (Live in USA)
Every neighborhood has a song.
If we could stand to listen.
What surrounds you, the sounds that make up your life, perhaps a new understanding of what music is, these are your neighbors, they are not separate from you, not more or less important, they are on a mission, as are you. Our outsized respect for this has no basis in reality.
I will never stop playing.
@mili:Quadibloc, fascinating to see Laila Kinnunen, Pirkko Mannola and Brita Koivunen on your list.
By the way, although I found "Itsy-Bitsy Teenie-Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini" in many languages, and "You Don't Own Me" in a few, not having a copy of "Mitä Suomi Soittaa" at my elbow, I don't know if "You Don't Own Me" was ever recorded by anyone in a Finnish version.
If so, you wouldn't happen to know the artist or the title?
Nice, but very short haha. Reminds me a bit of Fennesz.
Great song! And yeah that's the one downside. Though I think I prefer short to excessively long songs.
It's cold and rainy right now, so I'm listening to Le Lendemain's Lois off of their album Fires.
It suits the weather nicely. Here, try on Petrichor for size.
