Because I’m from Arkansas, when I sing I can sound like this character. I’ve been listening to country music more lately for some reason. 

“I got a thinking problem.” Sounds like standard neurosis,,,

Oh I didn't realize! I found them on Spotify while browsing for new releases, and then YT recommend their Tiny Desk Concert, apparently they won some contest. I think Tiny Desk Concert only does relatively well established artists otherwise.

Any recommendations yourself?

"Catchy Stuff":

Hailing from the Orkney Islands:

Without the voices:

I learned late last year that 1) Matt Berry made music  2) I had actually heard his music before, but didn't realize he was an actor (I saw him in "What We Do in the Shadows") .

 

Eternal post-Kraftwerk synth roll:

Featuring baby Cretu and baby Sandra, pre-Enigma. I have a similar sort of relationship with it: not sure if the instrumentals are too cheesy and about as subtle as a whack over the head, and everything is so emotionally out-there. But at the same time, that's the appeal. Zero irony, zero reservation, and a whole lot of intangible things going on emotionally and lyrically.

Also, her voice was intriguing back then too.

Other Stuff: I feel like I'm kind of late to the Mike Oldfield game. Also look, it's Karl Jenkins (of Soft Machine). Part of my musical DNA or w/e. My brother had Adiemus on repeat when I was about 12, and I got pretty sick of then. There's as lot of other stuff worth listening to though that's not Adiemus. 

Tubular Bells = brought to you courtesy of LSD.

Metal Revival: Oh look, it's time to roleplay being 16-17 again! I never had this particular album on rotation that much, but apparently now, it's time. Mostly it has sentimental value because it was favourite of a friend of mine way back when. Not coincidentally, I've been having insane dreams about him lately again.

It flows well, it makes good use of the same 2-3 major motifs. To the point that it's kind of repetitive, but then... I've also weaned myself off novelty for novelty's sake.

There was a point at which I simply started to tolerate Gothenberg Scene style synths, kind of like tolerating death metal growls. Some people make it work well enough for them, but did I ever really love the sound in its own right? Maybe not.

 I hadn't heard this until recently, surprisingly. This is WAY better than most of the music I remember listening to in this ballpark genre back then. High effort, etc.

I'm gonna listen to old Ulver, it's gonna be a metal album!

...no metal, just chill.

It's good music to wander around to in the woods at dusk.

So good


How is this post just me acting out my ego in the usual ways? Is this post just me venting and justifying my selfishness? Are the things you are posting in alignment with principles of higher consciousness and higher stages of ego development? Are you acting in a mature or immature way? Are you being selfish or selfless in your communication? Are you acting like a monkey or like a God-like being?

Current Listening Mood:

Music to float away to another world:

 If the elements of the original track were underwater, shaken, suspended, and slowly floating down toward the deep:
