Monday’s Music Box, Soundtrack for Surfing: Ólafur Arnalds

A wonderful Icelandic composer.

A lovely Soundtrack For Surfing.

Relax….and let the waves pull you under….I’ll meet you at the bottom…

And a pretty funny guy, too, as seen in this Live on KEXP performance:

 

Cheers and Enjoy!

Monday’s Music Box, Soundtrack for Surfing: Mogwai

More Post-Rock pleasures….

…this time from Scottish lads, Mogwai.

They (Mogwai) disdain the categorization “Post-Rock” and I can’t say that I blame them.  I feel more and more these days that genre is dead.  Music is music.  Categories and genres are just unnecessary baubles for the pin-heads to talk about.  This coming from a self-labeled pseudo-intellectual (moi).

Still, it helps me find shit I dig on Youtube.

How is it I dig this stuff but can’t stand most “jam bands”?  Perhaps it is because of their self-awareness, their disdain for categories, genres.  I am a Pink Floyd child after all.

Guitars, guitars and more guitars.

RAWK!

Gotta love that album title, too.

Happy Dystopian Monday!

The Return of Monday’s Music Box, Soundtrack for Surfing: We Lost The Sea

So apparently there’s this thing called “post-rock” and apparently I really dig it.

Prog-Rock and Art-Rock’s lovely, mad bastard.

Crescendo’s abound.

Atmosphere’s crashing down.

We are all leaving now.
