If you like the Strokes, you'll like The White Stripes even more. Happy and delicious.

a great band that is from my country hehe, they sing in english so you might understand the lyrics

For the older folks, I was just listening to a young jazz singer named Jane Monheit, and have to say her phrasing is about as tasteful as I've ever heard.

Gorecki — Symphony Number 3. And Webern — who seems very NOW!

As good a place as any to leave this tip:

I found a nice free song today at iTunes today called "Far Far" by Yael Naïm. She's the one who does the song playing behind the airbook commercial.

I noticed her voice has a similar quality to Feist who does the song on the recent iPod nano commercial.

Eric, as luck would have it, when I got around to tuning into Emerson's station, They are playing Broadway show tunes.

Ehague's picture

Oh yeah. I forgot to mention to listen during the day on weekdays. Saturday and Sunday they play nothing but show tunes, a capella, kids songs, R&B, punk rock, and Jewish/Israeli music.

Here's an interesting little video. Cuban piano players always have an assortment of ways to allot notes in a measure.

new brutalism-brut unison Cd

Ch's picture

some folks might call these recordings "ambient", but the instrumentation is
more interesting than the usual electronic wallpaper, and song structures
merge with environmental drones. helps me when the pressure is on.

stars of the lid - avec laudenum
autechre - quaristice
alva noto + ryuichi sakamoto - vrioon
fennesz + sakamoto - cendre
phill niblock - guitar too for four

If they cancelled this one, it might require explaining why others, even more zanily off-topic, didn't get cancelled.

The only new album I’ve picked up is Nine Inch Nails Ghosts. I’ve given up on keeping up with music—there’s just too much going on now. I could easily devote seven nights a week just to seeing local bands!

Great recording, and apparently unique in featuring boy trebles instead of women as the piece was originally written.

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.

I saw the lady singing on the Airbook commercial, Yael Naim, is singing at the "El Rey" theater in LA next month. She sings in English, French, and Hebrew. Apparently this is a tad off-beat for my friends, so I may end up going alone. Tickets are $24 if anyone is interested.

Stefan, if you like 'Laughing Stock', probably you should also try 'Spirit of Eden'. At least for me it's one of the absolute favourites for this kind of mood
