This time of year can be pretty depressing.
Christmas is in a month´s time, it´s freaking cold outside, and the Nordic Winter Depression™ is rearing its ugly head again. Same procedure as every year.
So I figured this might be a good time to recommend some really good music. Listening to good music won´t make you rich, good looking or famous, but it will take away some of the pain of winter life – for a little while. And that´s not a bad deal if you ask me.
Here we go:
1. Miles Davis: Live-Evil (Columbia 1971)
You need to get this record. Seriously, this is the coolest stuff ever. Play it loud!
2. Kullrusk: Kullrusk (Moserobie 2005)
This supercool Swedish band´s music is the perfect antidote against winter depressions. Pure joy of life!
J.S. Bach: Das Wohltemperierte Klavier, played by Glenn Gould (CBS/SONY)
This music makes me believe that the human race might have a future after all.
Catch ya later –
There is no arguing the first selection, but I am not so sure about those other two, but I will admit I have never heard of the artist or the CD.
But, what about Dave Brubeck’s “Time Out”!
Come on guys! There isn’t a better CD, than that, I mean those time signatures are awesome!
Yeah, I agree Brian, Time Out is definitely a fabulous album and a real classic.
Had a trip on Google and found some of this… Cool stuff. And Brian, “Dave Brubeck” Hell Yea! -Have to give side note crazy winter tip myself, “Shooby Taylor, The Human Horn”: http://www.shooby.com/mp3/index.html
