Music To Eat

An Eclectic Gastronomy of Sound

Sunday Brunch: Nov. 10, 2013

sundaybrunch_nov10aNew music every Sunday.

The Black Watch– “Meg” (from The End of When, 2013)
This sounds like the best of the 80’s crashing into the best of the 90’s and then it all being dragged into the present.  The Black Watch have been around for 20 years, with an English professor as their leader (well, okay, he’s not a professor but he does have a PhD in English).  Music that’s retro in the best way. Even the video looks like it’s from the 90’s..or the 80’s. That part’s not so great.
Their previous album was called Led Zeppelin Five

Cut Copy– “Free Your Mind” (from Free Your Mind, 2013)
Dance music for cults? Yeah, I know the video is..um, slightly weird. I kinda like it though, particularly the basketball game with the invisible basketball.  The song is full of memorable hooks, lush synths and harmonies and a groovetastic (is that a word?) beat.

Joshua Redman – “Final Hour” (from Walking Shadows, 2013)
Short and sweet. Music for a shadowy Sunday or the final hour of day before night falls.

“By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers. It would promote human happiness in other ways as well. Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.” – from Brunch: A Plea, by Guy Beringer, in “Hunter’s Weekly”, 1895.
