More Music

As I have reached middle age, my tastes have turned mellower. Music with the complexity and drama of prog rock or metal perhaps, but with smoother and mellower tambres and gentler themes. More pleasant, less jarring.

Arthur Verocai, Joni Mitchell, Astrud Gilberto, and Hiroshima’s early work pretty much would sum up my current musical tastes…

That, and any Lindstrom and Prins Thomas (examples 1 and 2) and Todd Terje DJ mixes floating out there on the interwebs for that great italo-sometimes-proggy-fusion disco sound…

 

Here’s a tracklist of one of my favorite Lindstrom/Prins Thomas mixes: that Kat Mandu song is incredible.

When I got it, the file name was like 05050529-02.mp3. Oh yeah, it was linked from the Riff Raff column in the Village Voice. I liked that column, I think they fired the writer for making up a story though, does the writer have a new column or blog anywhere?  Oh, I guess it’s www.riffmarket.com
