Your Sunny Day Playlist

May 15, 2014

Surprise, it’s not a playlist, it’s me talking about music instead.  With the onset of some early Summer days within the last week, it is only reasonable that I would begin to talk about summer music listening things.  Your hot and sunny day music choices, particularly when driving a car, can go one of two ways.  Well that isn’t entirely true, but for the sake of my blog, let’s say there are only two.  You can go the raucous route, maybe not of the angrier variety, but I guess it depends on how you feel that day.  I would think maybe Helter Skelter, or something by Zeppelin, maybe the Black Keys, or say Paris by Grace Potter.  Raucous jams are all around us. How about some White Stripes?  But then again, there is another route, the happy carefree, laid back sort of music.  Try some Flaming Lips on for size, maybe some Sigur Ros?  or that great purveyor of sunshine: Michael Franti.  But maybe you don’t go in either of these directions and settle for some kind of mix of the two which would ideally consist of some Pixies, early Radiohead, most anything by Bowie, maybe some Nirvana, the choice is yours truly.  Mix the happy chill sounds with the upbeat, loud and downright rockin’ and you will surely have your ideal sunny day playlist.  Enjoy!

Amnesiac

December 13, 2013

Easily one of the strangest Radiohead albums, the majorly electronic follow up to KID A, really shows Radiohead as an even bigger musical pioneer as it delved more into the digital age coming about in the early 2000’s.  The world was exploding in all directions, everything getting faster, more user friendly, the early stages of the social networks, and a world drowing in post 9/11 hysteria.  This album is not what I would have called user friendly when I first heard it, but then again, this is coming from the guy who’s first Radiohead album was KID A, and if my early teenage mind could process that, Amnesiac was truly a step into something more resembling normalcy. It’s definitely not as free form and confusing as “King of Limbs” and certainly not as focused as “In Rainbows,”  and not as weird as KID A, but definitely one of the most memorable albums in my life, as well as the most listened to.  There are just so many lush soundscapes, mixing a seamless blend of jazz rhythms, ambient noises and haunting vocals.  All in all it is a masterpiece if I’ve ever heard one.
