Pulled out some old favorites tonight as a result of this evening's history of rock class. We talked about minimalist performers like Laurie Anderson (whom, you may know, was married to Lou Reed), and during break, my professor asked if I was familiar with her. I told him I didn't know much of her music, but I do like Sharkey's Day, so I went home to relisten/rewatch it.

Also, I recommended to my professor some other musicians I like in that vein, so sharing those as well. These aren't strictly minimalist - and at one point were considered New Age, though I'm not generally fond of New Age. Let's just call them instrumentally focused. I was fortunate to catch the Windham Hill tour my last week of high school and instantly fell in love:

Philip Aaberg: "Swoop":

William Ackerman: "Ventana"

And one of my favorite artists of all time, David Sylvian, who was in a British art rock group called Japan. As a solo artist, he took a far more experimental direction. During college, I listened to his album, "Words with the Shaman" when I was either studying or trying to sleep or just wanted to relax, so I pulled that out tonight as well. Part 1 and Part 2.

I generally don't like Yoko's music, but I have to say "Bad Dancer" is insidiously catchy.

 

 

You can play "spot the celebrity" like the Queenie Eye video

I was able to make out the two remaining Beastie Boys, a chunkier-than-normal Sean Lennon, ?uestlove and Ira Glass from NPR. Couldn't get the others, though a few I kept thinking "I should know who they are..."

I was listening to this driving to the playground with my son this morning...

That was friggin' hilarious. I couldn't spot anyone besides the Beastie Boys though. I even failed to spot Sean.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
