Just heard this Ambient track via Frisky Chill radio.  Excellent.  It's a recent album from Cosmic Replicant.  I really appreciate it being published on YouTube, though the ending got cut it seems.  Still nice.  Some Progressive Trance for your morning.  ~z

Digging through boxes of old vinyl records today I discovered Jethro Tull for the first time - I'm kind of shocked to have never heard this guy before! I love the unusual combination of instruments, and the lyrics are wonderful - it seems to me like what you'd get if you modernized medieval ballads.

Just stumbled onto this tonight.  Not big on Christmas carols and such, but this rendition of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" is awesome!  First of all it's starring Annie Lennox in several roles.  The rhythm feels ancient and Celtic to me.  The video art direction and styling is creative and inspiring.  Very pagan quality--especially at the end.  This is from her A Christmas Cornucopia Album released in November, 2010.  Fun fact:  Annie Lennox was born on Christmas Day.  ~z

Here's some Progressive Trance that warms, envelops and transports.  Great rhythm.  Awesome beats.
"One" by Klangstein.  Enjoy. ~z

Just got Brandi Carlile's latest cd from the library.  Her previous several records were really hit and miss for me.  This seems to hearken back to her earlier stuff, which I really liked.  Here's the first track, a live version she did in a radio studio.  One of a kind voice, and a local product (Maple Valley or Black Diamond, somewhere in that vicinity).  And yes, the guitar players are twins.

Metric is a Canadian band I'd never heard of until I found them on Pandora.  Not sure if they got some radio air play at one time or another.  Their 2009 record Fantasies is great.  Here's a video for one of the songs.

Nac - I find this post intriguing. Really brings home to me generational differences which I've so far not paid much attention to.  I just assumed everyone knew who Jethro Tull was, but then I live in a bubble wherein everyone grew up in the '70s and '80s.

I've been on a country/bluegrass kick lately. Have really been enjoying these guys. This song is somewhat unique in their catalog as only two members are playing instruments:


Bo nails what's wrong with commercial/pop country on the radio these days:

I've had Aqualung on repeat for the last week or so. That album rules.

Re: generational differences, I bet most people in my rough age range (I'm 23) have only heard of Jethro Tull through Ron Burgundy lol.gif

I've actually met several people about my age who haven't even heard of the Beatles. That one's pretty weird to me.

Yeah, that seems hard to believe.  I can understand not listening to them/being familiar with their body of work, but to not even know who they are?

Well, I guess that's one way to identify people who aren't what I'd call true music fans.  They may enjoy listening to music, but they don't have an appreciation of or interest in its history or roots.


Going back to the classics, I listened to this on Youtube last night.  I have to say, the sound quality available via youtube and my headphones plugged into my computer can't hold a candle to spinning this on vinyl to a tube amp and a big honking set of speakers.  This digital version via headphones just sounds "thin" compared to the vinyl/amp scenario but it's still a great song.
Pour a couple fingers of bourbon, sit back, and let it take you on a journey to some masterful playing and songwriting.
