    I have been loving the launch of Spotify in Australia. What has been on rotation for me?

    The Tiger & Me - From a Liar To a Thief. Australian folk-style. Gorgeous record with banjos, harmonicas and violins aplenty.

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend! A disconcerting album - they still can absolutely nail simple musical ideas and expand in beautiful ways.

    Dead Can Dance - Anastasis. Beautiful album, and slightly less dirgy than their previous efforts.

    Kendrick Lamar - Good Kid, m.A.A.d City. Will undoubtedly be an album of the year for a lot of people. Some of the best story-telling hiphop I have heard in a while.

    Gojira - l'enfant Sauvage. It gets me through Dota2 sessions.

    Frank Ocean - channelORANGE. Will be album of the year for even more people, including me.

    Chet Faker - Thinking in Textures. Excellent, fuzzy trip-hop (with a little less hop) stylings from this Aussie.
    Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

    I've heard about Frank Ocean from a number of places now, but still can't see mention of him without thinking Billy Ocean and being really confused for a bit.

    Anyone ever heard of Captain Murphy? Currently no one knows his identity, and its beginning to be disputed whether or not he's a combination between OF and Flying Lotus, or perhaps maybe even Zeroh. His Duality mixtape just dropped yesterday. Cool thing is, the whole mixtape is a short film incorporating some movie footage, and some videos of Jim Jones (cult leader) and Heaven's Gate.

    For those interested.

    Personally, they rank somewhere between #5 and #10 on my favorite bands list, but aren't characteristic of my favorites.

    I like my steak like I like my Magic cards: mythic rare.

    The Ys games have had so many rearrangements that it's hard to keep track. This is my favorite version of Palace of Destruction.

    I hold the controversial opinion that the first Crystal Chronicles has the greatest soundtrack in the Final Fantasy series. Kumi Tanioka's decision to rely on folk instruments over the orchestral sounds common in other FF soundtracks was the right one.

    @Kresslack, try listening to Geoff Berner's version of Mayn Rue Platz. I'd link it, but I'm posting from my phone. It's on YouTube. So sad. It's gorgeous.

    Otherwise, it's a Neutral Milk Hotel kind of morning.
    My avatar is an image created by this very talented gentleman, of whose work I am extremely jealous. It was not originally a picture of Amunet, but it certainly looks a great deal like how I envision her!

    @Amunet: Good stuff

    Mayn Rue Platz (My Resting Place) by Geoff Berner on Grooveshark


    Some Awolnation, this is the only song of theirs that I like, and I can't get it out of my head:

    I blame @Shahai for this, been stuck in my head since I heard the Muppet version! Great song, though.

    Legendary Jazz pianist and composer Dave Brubeck died today, days shy of his 92nd birthday. :(  In remembrance, I'll post two songs by his famous quartet from one of greatest Jazz albums, Time Out: Strange Meadow Lark, my favorite track, and Take Five, the best-selling Jazz single of all-time.

    RIP Dave Brubeck for sure.  I have the vinyl version of Time Out, it's good stuff (even if I admittedly listen to Oscar Peterson a lot more, as far as jazz pianists go).

    But anyway, came here more to post more chamber music.  Lots of youtube videos because different movements, and wasn't conveniently in a playlist.
