I'm finding that my interest toward the eclectic was starting to drift b/c of the field I work in (commercial radio). However, to stay sane, I feel I need to keep in the swing of things with more independent/creative/new music. I'm ever so inclined to just leave commercial radio, however, there are certain aspects of it that I really love. Maybe it's the narscisist(sp?) in me...hah.
I was listening to Neko Case's "Fox Confessor..." on the way to work this morning and just can't recall the last time I heard ANYTHING like it. I've had it for a while now and every time I listen to it I'm just in awe of her. Her music has such a lived-in feeling to it. It is just like a cloudy fall day that wraps you up in a feeling of melancholy that is just so perfect. You want to live that one day...all the time. That's how I feel when I listen to her music. And that's only part of it...
I haven't devoted too much listening time to the latest Modest Mouse disc. I need to do that today. I listened to it once (almost the whole way through) since I've purchased it and I don't think I am digging it as much as thier older material. Not too sure about it yet. It deserves much more listening though. I don't care what anyone says about them, they are different and fabulous and I fucking love them. They can be dancy, dark, and cool all at the same time. This makes me happy.
Well. I hope to get this community going once again. Let's talk music! It's always a good time to talk about music :)
