Besides Mstislav Rostropovich’s cello, Styrofoam ‘Nothing Lost’ album [http://www.styro.be/] is the best thing I happend to listen to lately. AS
Mostly listening to my wife play the piano. She is really exceptional. Chopin, Bartok, Liszt, whoever. Lately my iPod has been pointed to Fleming, Cabal
I’ve been listening to lots of Bl
Esy tycheros, CL !
Aside from my usual assortment, I’ve got some new additions in heavy rotation: The Dears No Cities Left — I really like some tracks, I really don’t like others. Madvillain Madvillainy — Great stuﬀ. Mos Def Black on Both Sides — A classic I was long overdue to get. Arcade Fire Funeral — I got sucked in by the blog hype, but it’s really growing on me. Handsome Boy Modelling School White People — I think I prefer their ﬁrst album, but there are some great tracks here.
The Napoleon Dynamite and The Life Aquatic soundtracks both have some great original scores.
The Pernice Brothers, “Yours, Mine & Ours”
I’ve stopped listening to music. There are no pictures on the walls. I’m reading a lot of books, though. (Diﬀerent thread..)
Also not to be overlooked
The latest issue of K48 magazine (www.k48rules.com) has a great (as always) companion cd, not to mention really cool content.
WGBO the best Jazz station on the east coast of the USA. You can listen anywhere in the world www.wbgo.org and on-line streaming
zemﬁra, good choice! since i’ve been at p22, i’ve been listening to obscene amounts of stereolab. that and the ﬂaming lips (i laughted all the way through their version of “i just can’t get you out of my head” today)
Thievery Corporation — Outranational Sound Zero 7 — When It Falls Air — Talkie Walkie Combustible Edison — Impossible World Klement Julienne — Panamerican To name a few.
About music I ﬁnally edited a postcard specimen with names of songs on it as fake text. (Who can be more on booth subjects than me, eh! ;) :P Postcard + top 12 and that page for what I really listen everyday, it change all the time, less these days, as I’m in NY and not at my usual place. Also, must point out that ichatstatut that many of us use with iChat.
I just got a digital music player — an iRiver, because I prefer ogg ﬁles to mp3 — and I’m having great fun rediscovering long neglected bits of my music collection by putting the full thing on shuﬄe. Some of the transitions are a bit jarring: from Momus to a movement of Penderecki’s 2nd cello concerto to the latest Green Day album to the solemn Alma Redemptoris Mater.
Bach’s lute suites transcribed for guitar performed by Manuel Baruecco… Amazing! …studying them though is a diﬀerent kettle of ﬁsh!
