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)
Trying to keep up with all of the great music out there is a full-time job. Staying within the electronic, dub-step, classical, hard-to-define genres, I picked up these new/newer/should-have-had a long time ago albums the past week.
Unbelievable violin set to dub-step, drums, synths, electronic background that on the surface sounds like an odd combination, but she pulls this off. I have been listening 4 or 5 times a day since downloading this. Play it loud.
deadmau5, album title goes here (2012), and 4×4=12 (2010)
Where has deadmau5 been all of my life? Music that takes your head and scrambles it. This is electronic.
