burial

Burial, burial, dark, burial, burial, underwater, burial burial , half remembered rave anthems, burialburial, jungle? burial burial, top albums of 2006, burial burial, surprised that I was hooked, burial burial, haunting melancholy, unnerving, lovely, distant, jittery, smoky, loved, my cell phone ring

Burial - You hurt me

unlike most of the music i have loved recently this is dark, spare, haunting music.
Perhaps I am not allowed to turn my goth side off. I have had a lifelong fascination with the darkside (Vader be damned) and this album allowed me to indulge while feeding me a new vision of an underwater London whose memories of warehouse parties still echo through the cold still water.

Stopping for a bit

This has been wicked fun, but as I have mentioned recently I am drifting. I feel my musical center shifting to some new uncharted territory and don't really feel the confidence or certainty to expound on what has moved me recently.

Something that I was grateful to find online recently, (in its entirety) ,is an old album by Dennis Wilson entitled Pacific Ocean Blue.

Dennis was Brian Wilson's brother and the drummer for the Beach Boys. He hung out with Charles Manson and certainly had his own distinctive take on music.


I had heard of it a lot in odd circles and a dedicated search yielded some amazing results

Dennis Wilson - Thoughts of You

so melodic, soulful, and actually shoegazey
