How slow can you go?

Slowdive is an interesting dive. The New Yorker said recently that they were everything but a quiet. slow band. Boy did they get it wrong. They are a total shoe gazer band I haven't posted much in the last year on this blog, but I invite you to check out this band from England; I'll try to post more in the future.

To the Max!

Max Richter's music is a blend of classical, electronica, and rock. He called his music "post classical. Richter was born in Germany and moved to the U.K. with his parents when he was you. He has recorded numerous albums, which include film scores and a ballet. He also did a score for an episode of the tv show, "Black Mirror."

Ole, Ola!

This was a driveway moment. The song I heard on our local classical music station just blew me away. It was by someone I'd never heard of and totally misheard his name. So I went to the station's website and looked him up. I'm glad I did because this composer is amazing. Instead of giving you a long background of the artist, I'll just share a couple samples of his music. His hame is Ola Gjeilo and he's originally from Norway, but he lives in New York. Enjoy!
