There’s no way around it — the Shostakovich quartets are intense, like page-turning thrillers, as they pull you into his world. 
Watch the Pacifica Quartet play Shostakovich at NPR’s Tiny Desk. 

They are so great!

  2. Donnacha Costello - To Thee This Night (I Will No Requiem Raise) (from Pop Ambient 2004 - Kompakt Records)

    Beautiful stuff that I can’t find on any other album but this one. The last 4 minutes are a pure drone of one note (so be warned). Reminds me a bit of Papa M.

  3. Spoon - Do You (from “They Want My Soul ”) - audio only

    Can’t stop listening to this album. Still one of my favourite bands of all time. A year in which a new Spoon album is released is always a good year.

  4. Lisa Gerrard - Seven Seas (From “Twilight Kingdom”)

    Simply stunning and otherworldly (could we expect anything different from this lady?). I would love to see her in concert again. Transformative.

  5. R.I.P., Robin Williams. Truly sad.

  8. The Both - Milwaukee (from “The Both”) - Superego Records

    Great combination of Aimee’s thoughtful lyrics, smooth voice and Ted Leo’s power pop sound. What a marriage (well musical anyway, sorry Michael Penn).

    Happy 180th birthday, John Venn.

  12. Late to the party alert! So I was listening to a compilation of Merge Records in the background at my local Starbucks and came across this band I liked the sound of, Amor de Dias. Being a long time fan of The Clientele I was pleased to find out that this is another band for Alasdair MacLean. What I also didn’t know is that his partner in crime is the great Lupe Núñez-Fernández of another band I have loved for a very long time, Pipas

    Sometimes beautiful things pass you by the first time but you come around to them eventually.

    Amor de Dias - June’s Waving (from “Houses at Sea” - Merge Records)

  13. Groove for the day - Kunihiko Murai - Yajugari M-14 T-1

    (from Killing Melody - Instrumental Music From Japanese Pinky Violence Movies).

  14. Bill Murray in Wes Anderson movies

    Yes.
