I haven’t been able to keep up with all my email and missed a couple of months worth of these music samplers from Utne Reader.
I always like them so I saved them in my email, but I found out today that even tho I opened up the one from January, the music from January was gone and replaced with the music for March. So I totally missed out on January and Febuary. 🙁
This one is (as usual) a pretty good mix. I really don’t know how to describe some of them.
I really liked the one by Terry Waldo. It’s called “Proctology”. I don’t know why (what a name). I always did like ragtime and I haven’t heard it for a long time. Too long. I used to try to play the piano for my dad and his friends. I never really got to be very good at it, but I had some books on ragtime and always loved the sound.
Another one I really liked in this months sampler is the one called “Agdam” by Hauschka (German composer Volker Bertelmann). It’s all on piano too, tho it’s hard to tell a lot of times.
I always did love piano. I had no idea you could make it sound like that! 🙂
“I Got the Moves” by Habibi is another of my favorites from this months sampler. It’s kindof retro. Reminds me of the 60’s. Probably good to dance to. 😉
There’s plenty more good stuff to check out. “Red Eyes” by War on Drugs, “Calypso Lane” by the Blushin’ Roulettes (love the name), “River of God” by Linda Perhacs, and “Evolve” by Texas girl Emily Elbert (kindof jazzy, I liked it).
Check it out. 🙂
