music musings

on September 21, 2011

Yes, I buy CDs, rather than downloading music. I am adamant that nothing beats the real thing, in terms of sound quality and in just the sheer joy of holding a complete package of art and music and creativity,

I’ve been admiring the cover art of some of the CDs currently on high rotation in my DVD player that’s plugged into a stereo that used to play CDs but is now broken so the DVD player has to suffice as a CD player, too, and… long story, really.

Here’s a sampling of my fairly eclectic (I think) musical listening habits of late. I’ll post some more in the near future, too.

Underoath – Paper Lung

I love this song. I keep thinking, ‘It’s actually quite beautiful,’ the way Richmond from the IT Crowd would say it…

Thousand Foot Krutch – Falls Apart

Red and Brian Head Welch – Fight Inside, Death of Me

Head is AMAZING. Korn have a special place in my heart – and I love Head’s new music, too. Oh, and Red are also great!

Gotye – Hearts A Mess

Proof that incredible music comes out of Melbourne… Just in case that weren’t obvious! I love the video too. Australian music is so good! (Yes, I am very biased.)

Floating Me – Breaking to Breathe

I know I’ve mentioned this band on this blog before. But they are a brilliant Australian band and I can’t get enough of their music.

To prove the point, here’s another video…

Floating Me – Narke

Flyleaf – Again

Alestorm – The Sunk’n Norwegian
