I've really been enjoying listening to the most recent Perfume Genius album, Put Your Back N 2 It. I, admittedly, wasn't as taken by his debut, but I think there are some really beautiful moments on this album and the production is really good. I like how the lead instrument can change from song to song and it's hardly noticeable. To me, the album really works as a whole piece - it has a sound, a texture and a mood.
I was listening to the Com Truise album Galactic Melt on my bike ride into work this morning. It's warm, the sun is shining and it provided a great soundtrack. I really love how melodic it is. It's something I miss from a lot of electronic music.
I was going to post about the Emily White post, but I think I'd rather talk about things that I like about music and, despite the finances involved, the reasons I keep making it.
I really like the Sigur Ros album, Valtari. I think my favorite track is the last one, Fjogur Piano. I love the melody and the places it goes. It's a very nice trip away for almost 8 minutes. It's rainy and grey right now in Seattle, so the escape is very nice.
