    Gone exploring, riffing off of the Monophonics, looking them up and seeing where the links take me. Just discovered Greyhounds in the process. They don't have any studio recordings that I've seen on Youtube but I'm digging what they have on Tidal.

    Probably my favorite recording of Monteverdi's Seventh Book of Madrigals. It's a real pity that Rinaldo Alessandrini never seems to have released a recording of it, but Cavina's recording with La Venexiana has been a favorite of mine for years now.

    I just need to hear "Thriller." After that new Taylor Swift song I need to hear good music again. Fuck I miss MJ sometimes. Pop can be truly epic...

    P.S. Whenever you buy MJ's music, only get what has been produced by Quincy Jones does not suffer loudness. I have the 2001 Special Edition.

    Thriller is indeed a great album but the 2001 remaster seems to suffer from compression.

    I have the original from 1982 and it looks quite a bit different.

    Rather appropriate, given my avatar...for all people complain that it's all cake and tea, K-ON really does have some good music.

    You can't go wrong with the dynamics of 1980s CD releases of Michael Jackson albums. After that, it is on a case by case basis:

    When Greyhounds were just starting out and only had a self-released CD I saw them at a little coffee shop in Waco (this was probably '99 or 2000). Not a whole lot of people there but it was really good. The keyboard player was an absolute beast on that Hammond and somewhat of a prodigy with little to no music training. We chatted during the break and I think us talking music and his playing prompted him to really dig in and go nuts in the second set. I recorded it at the time on my minidisc recorder with binaural mics. Their sound is really different now - it was much more funky back then with less blues but very unrefined. Great show. I still have that self-released CD that I bought at the time. The lead-singer just looked like a normal college kid back then and they had a bassist playing with them.

    Hyperion Records has a fun little feature called Please, someone, buy me, where every week they generate a list of downloads nobody's bought in a long time and discount them. Given that Hyperion generally has pretty high-quality stuff (and sells downloads of some other good labels, like Gimmell), you can pick up some quality stuff from that list sometimes. Tonight I picked up this gem on a lark:

    [​IMG]

    I'm quite happy with the purchase. I wouldn't necessarily recommend getting this without listening to the samples first -- Medieval music can sound strange and off-putting to modern ears; it can be a bit of an acquired taste. But this's a great recording of an under-performed form of Medieval church music, and once you get into it, it's quite beautiful and entrancing. As alien as Medieval music can sound, it can also be quite expressive, and this recording really brings feeling to the music, at least to my ear.

    This isn't my usual type of music, but I came across this song somewhere (it was just in my bookmarks bar— creepy) and actually kinda like it:


    Also a good sentiment for when people start getting on your nerves.
