    His voice is incredibly annoying and all the songs sound p much the same. A big no to me.

    This, in contrast, is pure nectar & ambrosia

    I'd only heard the vocal only version before, didn't know this existed. I think the vocal only version is better.

    Not bad, but I think this flute playing is better.

    I didn't hate that, but in truth it seems a lot like something that might be playing softly in the background while I'm dining at an Indian restaurant.

    Really liked that, especially once it got into full swing and upped the tempo.

    I tend to avoid beef for no real reason, it was just a thought I had once that stuck. Cats make me a little allergic. Garfield is alright tho.



    I find this song distressing. It reminds me of the body's instinctive panic when faced with the thought of death.

    I've still been on my 1950s and 1960s British folk revival kick, which has been great. Discovered Ewan MacColl, Shirley Collins, the Watersons, Harry Cox, and most importantly, Peter Bellamy. Bellamy has quickly become one of my favorite artists ever. I posted a song from his folk opera, The Transports, a while back, but his major claim to fame was setting Rudyard Kipling's ballads to music (either by doing historical detective work to figure out what the tunes were, or just writing music himself).

    Anyhow, my Bellamy fandom has given me a whole new appreciation for Rudyard Kipling I never had before. Take his, "Follow Me 'Ome," for example:



    It seems so simple on the surface, in that it follows the same repetitive structure, but I've listened to it dozens of times now and get something new everytime. It's basically a lament of a soldier for a fellow soldier who was killed in battle. Some observations:

    1. The song's repetitive structure outlines a hierarchy of affection, starting with beasts/man, woman/man, and, at the highest, the love between men. Which isn't to say it's gay, I don't think it is. It's just that army songs had a sort of socially mandated means of expressing male/male affection that modern society lacks (seriously, how many modern pop songs can you think of that are about non-sexual and non-romantic love between heterosexual men? I can think of exactly one Jens Lekman song......not many others).

    2. The structure of the verses themselves reinforces this hierarchy, with verses 1 and 2 defining the parameters of love between beasts and man (His mare she neighs the whole day long / She paws the whole night through / and she won't take her feed for waiting for his step / which is just what a beast would do) and woman and man (His girl she goes with a bombadeer / Before a fortnight's through / And the banns are up in church / Cause she's got the beggar hooked / Which is just what a girl would do). The pattern established via the final line in each verse (e.g. "just what a" ... "would do") is broken, however, with the verse on male/male love, which ends with a prohibition (We fought 'bout a dog last week it were / no more than a round or two / I struck him cruel hard / I wish I hadn't now / Which is just what a man can't do). Again, the implicit message here is that beasts and women will love men, but there is no reason or even, it seems, conscious thought involved. Their love may be true, but they are creatures controlled by their whims and thus choice and reason doesn't enter into the equation. In that sense, despite the beast's loyalty, his love is dismissed in the song as "just what animals do," while the woman's disloyalty is forgiven for the same reasons. However, according to the song, the love between men is the highest form of love precisely because there are things "a man can't do" in reference to another man, standards that he will be held accountable to, and a code of honor. In other words, man/man love is the only form of love that can be held to standards of reason. Indeed, the final verse of the song reinforces the idea that the love between men that is "passing the love of women" is the highest ideal that one can strive for. It's not a terribly feminist message, obviously, but an interesting look into late 19th century views of love and gender, nonetheless.

    3. Finally, in listening to all of Kipling's ballads it's really reinforced to me how useful the generic and repetitive structure of the ballad must have been as a preexisting, ritualized (almost to the point of formulaic), mechanism for processing trauma and grief. They all deal with really horrific subjects, but via fairly rigid and standardized forms that seemingly existed as a means of giving unspeakable horrors expression. They are sardonic and darkly humorous at times, but always empathetic. "Follow Me 'Ome" and "Cholera Camp" rip my guts out everytime I hear them, but they are also funny and full of fascinating and colorful vernacular and turns of phrase that make them seem uniquely alive. I used to dismiss Kipling as kind of dull, but I've really gotten a whole new appreciation for him via Peter Bellamy.

    Weird, but kind of good. That album has an interesting production history.

    Never been into country. It often sounds soothing and nice like this, but most of the time it can't hold my interest for very long.

    Guys please help, I've been hooked on Polish rap for like half a year. It all started with OSTR and Gedz, then it went through ReTo and now I've been hooked on Solar and Bialas, specifically on the Nowa normalność and Stage diving albums. Anyone other Polish MC even come close to Solar and Bialas? I still don't know a word in Polish so I was wondering if anyone else sounds remotely as good in general

    Hm, Ravel, Boléro. Nice, I guess, but not in the mood right now.



    Edit: Oh, you're from Finland? Nice coincidence. :3

    Interesting, but nothing about it really stands out to me other than that band has been together for a long time.
