The Magnetic Fields – Three Way

I love so many things about this. The original is one of my favorite (mostly) instrumentals (I feel like it's based in some way around "Tequila", but haven't gone to the bother or proving it in any way).

This version removes all of the distortion and feedback, and adds...accordian and strings. The "Three way!" chants at the end are delightfully awkward in the best tradition of Magnetic Fields.

The camera work, on the other hand? Not so much.

Friday Music Day: Transitions….or not

Happy Friday, all. You made it through another week. Give yourself a pat on the back, and maybe a beer, if you indulge.

This is right around the time of year where my music taste would metamorphose. Winter is the time of year for darker and often harsher music, and Summer is obviously the time for lighter, poppier, more airy music.

That hasn't really happened yet this year. I think that's partially because, with only a few exceptions, this Spring has been kind of chilly. It hasn't really felt like "windows rolled down" kind of weather, so it hasn't really felt like "windows rolled down" kind of music, either.

Does anyone else do this every year? If so, have you yet this year?

…and you will know us by the trail of dead – into the godless void

It can be...difficult to find proper ToD live clips, since their lead singer can be a bit grating. This one is pretty good, though (different lead singer!), and the new album is really solid all the way through.

I thought these guys were on their last legs a few years ago, but they keep going strong.

Duel of the Fates

Newbish has decided that Star Wars music is the best music (he's also a big fan of Klendathu Drop and Basil Poledouris' music, but the live renditions of that on YouTube left something to be desired). After a few months of this, John Williams is my most played artist on Spotify -- ever.

I don't mind listening to cinematic orchestra music, though -- it beats Imagine Dragons. I've always enjoyed my fair share of soundtrack music, and having him get into it is fun.

As a bonus, the conductor here is VERY entertaining to watch.
