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.
On NPR’s Tiny Desk. I love the intimacy of performances like this. The Tiny Desk Concerts are a treasure trove of great music.
A little UK Soul for you.
This gal is a force to be reckoned with. A multi-instrumentalist and composer. She’s got soulsoulsoul, class and style out the wazoo. And she’s beautiful as well. Especially once she starts singing. You have to respect someone with this much talent and integrity. Call me histrionic but the power of the beauty of her soul comes shining through.
