I think this would qualify as trip-hop? I love it. Wax tailor has been one of my go-to artists for a long time; whenever I want to get stuff done, it’s the best stuff to listen to.
The Games You Play is just one song though: I strongly recommend that you listen to more songs from him!
Just one among many. I’ve been making my way through some of Chance The Rapper’s work (h/t CK!) and I must say it’s just the way I like it! Enjoy, and make sure to listen to a few more!
It’s been a while since I shared the music I listen to on a loop while working. Let’s get back on that horse! Today, Yonderboi, especially his “Splendid Isolation” album and the “All We Go to Hell” track.
Yonderboi, aka Fogarasi László, happens to be Hungarian so I got to listen to him live a couple of times. I couldn’t really describe the kind of music he produces, so I’ll just let you enjoy it!
Yes, while you’re at it, listen to the whole album. :)
The Celtic Social Club releases a new album today, A New Kind OF Freedom! If you like Celtic music or just want to discover a mix of traditional Breton, Irish, Scottish, Cornish, and Welsh songs, often with a twist of Rock, Blues, or even Reggae, you’ll want to listen to their new album! It’s available on iTunes, Spotify, and Apple Music.
Here is a live concert to give you a little intro. Enjoy!
I don’t know much about anime, but I’ve always really enjoyed Hayao Miyazaki’s films. Nausicaä, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, are all films I want to show my daughter when she grows up. I like Miyazaki’s takes on the interactions between humans and nature, and his style in general.
So of course, when I discovered this mixtape with samples from all those movies, I jumped on it!
I discovered Luna Lee today; she plays a traditional Korean instrument named “Gayageum”, and her covers are simply amazing! Here is her take on Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World (although I must confess I only knew Nirvana’s Unplugged version until today).
Enjoy, and make sure to visit her channel if you like the style!
Noir Désir. In France, it’s the band of a generation. Thinking back on my teenage years, 4 French rock bands immediately come to mind: Indochine, Mano Negra, Louise Attaque, and Noir Désir.
It’s hard to pick a specific song. They had so many hits. If I had to pick a few, Un Jour En France would definitely be one of the first. There was also L’Homme Pressé; Tostaky; Aux sombres héros de l’amer. But their last album, Des visages des figures, was my favourite. It was calmer, and I listened to it over and over again. Like I will today. :)
Here are my 3 recommendations for you today.
I went down a rabbit hole last night, and I figured I’d take you with me. 🙂
I discovered PV Nova a few months ago. He’s a French musician and YouTuber, and is now mostly known for his experiments. Through his YouTube channel, he shares his love for music and explains how music is made.
About 20 years ago, I spent all my savings and bought a Sony Hi-Fi System. With a 3-CD changer and a cassette player, it was a great purchase! From that moment on I started listening to more and more music, often the same 3 albums on repeat (that’s when a 3-CD changer becomes useful 🙂). I would listen to music while reading, often late at night, almost daily.
One of the first CDs I got was a 1997 selection of pop and pop-rock songs from popular female singers. This was great stuff. I somehow remembered that album over the holidays and created a Spotify playlist so I could listen to that same album even though I don’t have the CD anymore!
