New Music Break Monday

Still catching up after being under the weather most of last week, so I'll keep this short. Did get a chance to listen to some music that I hadn't really known before, and really enjoyed this review of a Canadian band I had never heard of but would have been the first in line to see in my youth.

Bambino received the Amy Winehouse CD for his b-day, from Ondine, so of course we both spent the weekend sporadically breaking out into refrains of "No, no, no...."

What new music are you listening to/loving? Christmas is coming and I could use the help catching up.

Glad you're feeling better,Ed,
because that "warm ball of mucus" was more than I needed to envision.

Music: I recently saw, “Celia” Off Broadway, about Celia Cruz, the powerhouse Cuban-born singer who died a few years ago, so I’ve pulled all my music by her, which includes everything from guaguanco to reggeton. That led me to Albita, newer school with old-school roots. And then to Eddie Palmieri and Paquito D’Rivera for some latin jazz. Actually, pretty much anything in clave. But nothing recently released.

Actually, been listening to a lot of Books on iPod lately. Jasper Fforde (hope this link works) is great while commuting: fun blend of detective novel meets smart literary satire, while keeping it entirely light. I especially enjoy his occasional portrayals of stereotypical politicians....

You've got a very soft vision of art
You've got a deficit disorder of heart
Thes are the wings of an endangered drum pattern
This is the flight of the hapless, you've got it all backwards (...)

Artist: Dj Krush
Album: Zen
Year: 2001
Title: Vision Of Art

He's not new, but I expect I Melicious and I won't see Sondre Lerchre opening for Air at Bimbo's 365 or headlining a Sunday night show at the Swedish American Hall on a Sunday in front of 200 (as we did last night) too much longer; not since he did the soundtrack for the new Steve Carrell movie.

If you get a chance, see him in person. It's just him, his voice and one of two guitars he plays. Truly incredible.

Final Fantasy "He Poos Clouds" and Grizzly Bear "Yellow House". They are so beautiful - the music is art - haunting lyrics. Two of the best albums I've ever heard. And the lead singers are both gay, which makes their lyrics all the more poignant... for me anyway.

And if you like Amy - you should like Cat Power "The Greatest"

I second Jonathan's Cat Power recommendation, although she is a little different than Amy Winehouse, and arguably the more cerebral songwriter.

If you're in the mood for some thinking/zoning music, you might enjoy Stars of the Lid. The Texan/Belgium duo craft excellent ambient music, good for writing, painting and reading.

I've also been enjoying Sigur Ros on my city strolls. Invigorating marching sounds are a great companion for the space-cadet walks. ;)
