What are you listening to?
      #843862 - 02/07/10 08:18 PM
Every other forum on the Internet has one of these, so I guess there's one buried somewhere, but I can't find it.

(What no General Chat? OK, so you've probably been there, done that...)

I don't listen to a lot of electronic music, but I've found myself returning again today to The Knife's Silent Shout. The title track is a masterclass in arp.

Also re-listening to the first two albums by Turin Brakes - The Optimist and Ether Song. Some brilliant tracks in there.

CD - Jakob Dylan.
Radio - I've just sat through the Top 40 for the first time in about 19 years (I'm at work and our 19-year old receptionist has got it on the "piped music" system). Every single damn song identical. Don't think I heard a real drumkit or even a guitar in the entire 2 hours. Can't remember what was number 1 but I don't think it's Bryan Adams any more.

Generally, Radio 4.

As I type, it's 'Basket of Light' by Pentangle.

Natalie Merchant - Leave Your Sleep. A collection of childrens' poems set to her own music, with help from 103 other musicians over 6 years.

I thought it would be good to help introduce the kids to music and poetry.

An awesome piece of work - no record label would touch it and she self-financed the whole thing. Most reviews have it down as a masterpiece.

More here.

I was listening to that today - mainly because it got this year's Grammy for Best Engineered Album...impressive when you're going up against the top pros.

Interesting how many of us listen to Radio 4.

I save my down time for music listening, but when I'm in the workshop I need Radio 4 or silence. When I'm working on a guitar (or driving) I find music too distracting, I need to concentrate on what the guitar is doing as a whole but listening to music tends to makes me focus on how the guitar sounds with the music I'm listening to. And as for driving, I gave up listening to music in the car when I discovered I was cadence braking in time with the music!!

As for tonight, 'Exit Planet Dust' by the Chemical Brothers has just finished. 'Starless and Bible Black' by King Crimson is about to go on to accompany my final coffee and snack, and when I go to bed I'll be listening to 'Sarangi' by Ustad Sultan Khan... I've just entered an Indian phase again.

What did strike me listening again to 'Basket of Light' was how much Ruby Blue can sound like Pentangle at times.

...and to the latest 'Ellipse' album from Imogen Heap!

I only discovered her recently, and have just ordered her previous album 'Speak For Yourself' as well this morning

She really is a whizz with unusual arrangements and instrumentation

Not as much these last ocuple of months. I tend to listen to music when I'm in the bath, but as it has been so hot, I've been taking showers!

On my iPod I've been listening to some mixes I have done:

Diggin In the Crates retrospective.
Redman - Guest spot compilation.
Soul mix covering a wide range; Isley Brothers, Marlena Shaw, Gap Band and others in that vein.

I have also been selfishly listening to myself; some Hip-Hop tracks sourced from the last 5 years, brought up to date.

I was listening to a Lamont Dozier compilation the other day as well and the other week; Black Dog Productions - Bytes album/compilation on Warp.

Does anyone else here use Last.FM? If so we could start a Sound on Sound group and then we'd automatically get a chart every week of what the group's been listening to.

It's almost as though people are choosing obscure bands/acts to show just how eclectic their tastes are.

The other week I had to some work from home; boring annual reports, so I took some time to listen to some music whilst doing them.

Donald Fagen - The Nightfly - One of my favourite albums
Walter Carlos - Sonic Seasonings - For it's time, an interesting piece, but not a great work of ambient, a bit too much bird noise!
Brian Eno - Apollo - A wonderful album.
Barclay James Harvest - Gone to Earth - I could only manage part of side one, just not really my kind of music. It's in my collection because it has been sampled in a Hip Hop track, but it's not my kind of music really.
