A Terribly Tardy Music Tuesday

Yup, I’ve been bad this week.  Not sure what’s up, but I am so so tired and have been a delinquent blogger (and stained glass-er!)  Not to mention that I crunched through all my tax paperwork last night… that’s enough to make anyone pass out!

But enough with the excuses.  To cheer us all up — it’s Friday, after all! — here is my Tuesday Music post just a few days late.  And this has been an anticipated one for me, because this week marks the release of Bonobo’s new album, The North Borders.

It is all sorts of exciting, especially because it features one of my favourite artists ever, Erykah Badu, on the song Heaven for the Sinner.  I see a long future of listening to the album on repeat.  It’s chill, interesting and intelligent (you can read a review that pretty much sums up how I feel about Bonobo here).  The rhythms and layered sounds just suck me in and mellow me out.  How about you?

Music Tuesday

This week has been a bit of a retro week in terms of music in my studio.  I’m sick of the local radio and all the regular Sirius channels on my commute to work, so I’ve started listening to the 90’s on 9 channel… and who gets the occasional play but Sheryl Crow!  So I’ve been listening to greatest hits this week.  Her music is catchy, upbeat and I find myself humming it later on when I’m doing things other than stained glass.

The Best of Sheryl Crow

I can’t pick a favourite song, but the one that really gets me going is this one.  Can you believe that video is almost 20 years old??  Sometimes it’s nice to just have something you can sing along to when you’re working on a project…  Happy Tuesday!
