    Here are a few anachronisms I've been enjoying recently thanks to the Qobuz algorithm

    The best 80s song released in 2023
    Riverside - Friend or Foe



    Greta van Fleet taking us back to a better time in a somewhat surreal way



    Andrew Stockdale (of Wolfmother) with a fun 70's inspired groove

    Listen particularly to the tuba player. Just drifting along enjoying every note. How I feel right now.

    Never heard this. Excellent!

    Love the Lou Reed "Walk on the Wild Side" bass line.

    1st is my favorite cut from my favorite of his many albums. the 2nd cut is his superior cover of a Louis Jordan tune.

    I remember when the Gorecki/Upshaw CD launched. Heard it on the radio, immediately bought it. I listen to a lot of modern choral music, then and now, but never saw a modern composition hit the charts like that one. It was everywhere. I still hear it at least once a week on streaming classical radio. Symphony No. 3 is mournful & beautiful.

    @Pharmaboy , there's a rawness to this Naxos Polish recording, different from that iconic Upshaw recording.

    (Listening to the Upshaw/Gorecki right now) Guess I'll have to try this Naxos recording. It won't be easy ... Dawn Upshaw's singing of this part is burned into my brain.

    It's not the only time this happened to me. She also gives an iconic interpretation of Samuel Barber's wonderful "Knoxville, Summer of 1915." IMO Ms. Upshaw is an ideal interpreter of 20th centural vocal writing.

    I adore this piece. I saw it played by the BSO last spring and it brought me to tears.
