Why listen to post-rock

a3368010475_10

So I recently stumbled upon this great music from Oh Hiroshima! They are a Swedish band specializing in post-rock. I had no idea it was a thing, but it definitely exists, and blows your mind. Perhaps I would not be drooling over it, but I would definitely listen to it on long trips, and wouldn’t mind playing a record when I am jogging, or working on something (like this blog post). It’s amazing how effective it is in helping you tune out.

However, if even for a moment you need to plug-in to the soul of the earth, even if for a fleeting moment if you want to travel to the stars, then there is nothing better than progressive psychedelic rock.

Happy tripping \m/

And then…

This little gem is a magic bullet of music. When I heard Rattle That Lock, a┬ásolo album by David Gilmour released last year, I was completely taken by tracks like 5 AM, and In Any Tongue. While I maintain that those two are indeed the highlight for me, recently I heard the entire album again, and I was blown away by And Then…

It sums up the entire album in a true blue Pink Floyd tradition. I have been on the loop continuously. If you have a copy of the album, due tune in.

I couldn’t find the original on Youtube, but here is a cover.

Live for today

It always makes me wonder why Camel is not as widely known as some of the other progressive rock bands. Recently heard this rare gem from Camel. Absolutely stunning lyrics, and melodic solo. Enjoy!

 

For Today Lyrics

I saw a pearl of wisdom
in the spirit of a man
as he saved
the day he lost.

Time will say I told you so
if we look back in regret.
Never give a day away.
It won’t return the same again.

Nothing can last
there are no second chances.
Never give a day away.
Always live for today.

Seven Blues

I have been listening to Blues a lot these days… Perhaps its an influence for what I wrote today. A little poem that is about a day from past.

Warm faces melting smiles,

Did you say hello from the shore

Let me take my canoe there

Life is good, it’s so fair

And I want to tell you so

When it’s time to go

And I want to love you then

Way past seven girl, way past seven

The wet music hymns,

Are you really so silent there

Or have I gone deaf like the sunset

Life is good, its so good

And I want to tell you so

Just when it’s time to go

The canoe sinks and so does love when

we were fooling around, and it’s just seven

I call it the ‘Seven Blues’.
