Today’s SOTD is complete with well-matched and mesmerizing video (especially if you’re a fan of vintage animation – raising my hand over here).
I’m not sure what genre to file today’s SOTD under. All I know is my cat seemed vaguely disturbed or intrigued (or both) when I played it. So let’s file this under music for cats. Or possibly music not for cats. Here’s Danheim & Gealdyr with Odin.
Sometimes I think I should ONLY post songs by The Knife/Fever Ray/Karin Dreijer. We are long overdue for some more Knife (her original outfit) so here’s We Share Our Mother’s Health from 2006 for your Friday.
Today’s SOTD is from Manchester Orchestra. This is My Backwards Walk. Technical note: I had this song scheduled so ended up posting not one but two SOTDs for a Saturday. I’ll just leave this glitch since it’s such a cool song.
Here’s a rather obscure little band out of Tasmania called Quivers. I like the 1980s/90s inspired guitar jangle on this. Here’s You’re Not Always on My Mind.
Here’s local Toronto outfit Austra with Beat and the Pulse. Did I mention I go through phases? Current mood: dark-wave/electro (in case that’s not evident from recent posts).
Find yourself hankering over some sweet, clean synthesizers straight from the ‘80s but actually from the ‘90s? Portland, Oregon act Glass Candy can deliver that in spades. Here they are with Life After Sundown. Your ears will feel like they’ve been rinsed out with sparkling water and strobe lights after you give this one a listen.
Hey, have you ever wanted to drink soda pop through your ears? Here you go. You’ll want to strap on headphones for this one and consider them straws.
Today’s SOTD is also a VOTD. It’s a trip through the solar system of our inner selves and cells. It’s a biological journey through space. No, really. Check it out. Here’s Jon Hopkins with Everything Connected.
I’m at that point in my rewrite where I’m in my teens and it’s the 1980s again. So, you can expect an ‘80s theme in the coming posts as I try to immerse myself in that era (and angst). For now, there’s this song called Meet Me In The Woods, by Lord Huron. I ran to this last night and on my runner’s high it struck me as golden. Admittedly, I was also on a bit of a post-writing high. My Olympia typewriter is like magic from another dimension.
