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!

Music Tuesday

This week I’ve really been on a Bonobo kick.  I love the soft electronic style.  The interesting sounds and beats combine into something that is great to work to – uplifting and moving but without really being in your face.  According to the internets, his style could be classified as lounge, ambient or cinematic, but regardless there is something that really hooks me in it.  I think it’s the layered sounds and solid bassline. I’m a sucker for a baseline.

The album I’ve been playing on repeat (over and over) this week is Black Sands.  I think my favourite song on it is The Keeper:

Bonobo has a new album due out at the beginning of April and I’m excited.  You can check out the details, and the (amazing!) music video for the single, Cirrus, at the website here: http://www.bonobomusic.com/
