Recently I discovered the wonderful music of cellist Zoe Keating. She is a champion of the arts and independent musicians. On February 19th, her husband passed away from cancer. With her music filled with such emotion and expansive energy, listening to it now has a new light.
It’s been some time since I wrote about music, and anything new I have picked up. Music is one thing I look forward to and helps me get through work, writing, and life. On a typical day, I am plugged in for about 10-hours of non-stop music. I go through trends and try and be open minded, but at my core I have a weakness for Icelandic, neo-classical (violin, cello, piano, mixed with electronic), and electronic/dub-step/dance.
In no particular order, this what I have picked up the past couple of months.
Alva Noto – Xerrox, Vol 2 (2008)
Alexander Popov – Personal Way (2013)
Dog Blood – Middle Finger, Pt. 2 (ft. Skrillex) (2013)
