Khruangbin.

Went and saw these guys last night at Pipe in Gongguan. Incredible show. They were so good that other than random shots here and there, everyone was actually watching and dancing instead of holding their phones up recording it.

Meanness has seldom sounded so good: John Lennon, "How Do You Sleep?"

Notably different than the album track.

Pink Floyd - Pow R Toc H & Astronomy Domine plus Syd Barrett & Roger Waters Interview BBC



What a pity that pop music today doesn't sound like Barrett-era Floyd.

I think it must have been a set up. If it was they all acted it very well.

It's one of those weeks when something relaxing and meditative is much needed. :neutral:

J.S. Bach (after Marcello): adagio from the Concerto in D Minor, BWV 974.

I'm often allergic to videos of pianists with exaggerated, rhapsodic motions; but this one doesn't bother me. It seems right this time.


The whole album this is from is pretty great.
