An Eclectic Gastronomy of Sound
New music every Sunday.
We’re going a little more acoustic this Sunday than we did last week. At least, the first two selections are. I don’t know what it is, but the older I get, the more I like electronica and dance music. It’s supposed to be the other way around isn’t it? Shouldn’t I be seeking the safety and comfort of the familiar: the classic rock and folk as I coast into middle age? If anything, my tastes are becoming more eclectic. I’ve mentioned Say Lou Lou before on this blog – I think they could be the next “big thing.” Their music is both sophisticated and accessible (being beautiful twin Swedish sisters won’t hurt their career either…)
Simone Felice – “Molly-O” (from Strangers, 2014)
Adam Holmes– “Where The River Meets the Hill” (from Heirs and Graces, 2014)
Say Lou Lou– “Everything We Touch” (single, 2014)
“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.
