Friday Musical Interlude 8/29/08

Posted: Category: Friday Musical Interlude 2 Comments

It was time to re-work my iPod playlist last night.  After I was done I went back and looked at my picks.  I guess I was in a mellow mood.  So here are a few of the selections-

I’m back on my Sigur Ros kick.  I seem to migrate back to them every few months depending on what is going on in my life.  I’m super excited about their new compilation from this year “Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust“.  I ordered the Deluxe Edition (and still waiting for the damn thing)

So anyway, one of my favorite tracks from them is “Vidrar Vel Til Loftarasa”.  A controversial video, banned in their own country and a beautiful, beautiful song.

One of my all time favorite bands are the Smashing Pumpkins mostly for the emotion, passion and strength Billy puts into his live performances.  Here is Porcelina of the Vast Oceans (LIVE) off of the Mellon Collie album.

 

In 2003 we lost Elliot Smith… Beautiful voice, painful words. A tortured soul.
The Biggest Lie

You all have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Stay Beautiful.

  • Brian, what an amazing video and music from Sigur Ros. I sat her for 7 minutes just blown away. I will be looking for more from them. Thank you!
