The artwork reminds me of some of John Candy's work.

Latest Daft Punk and latest NIN are both fantastic to start with. I almost always get into Dark Side of the Moon after a few though.

Haha, okay - regarding music, I am absolutely nerdy in that I love listening to 'neo-cabaret' when drinking absinthe.

Ataraxia's "Paris Spleen" album is so delightfully a mixture of beautiful and goofy, all the while using Baudelaire passages as lyrics.

Oniric's "Cabaret Syndrome", and Revue Noir's "Anthology Archive" - which sounds like if Marlene Dietrich were still around - have accompanied me on my journeys many a time.

 

Beyond that, I like listening to very old jazz music/big band/French chanson, selected calm ambient stuff, and selected late-19th-Century Classical music.

I also, for whatever reason, like listening to Rachmaninov's "Isle of the Dead".

 

... I am currently working on a sort of ambient album themed around the Belle Epoque and whatnot. If anyone wants to get involved in that, I'm all ears - it's been quite the undertaking trying to plan out my ideas.

 

But here's an Ataraxia track. Takes a little while for some people to like this band - most of their stuff is very neo-Medieval, but they work in concept albums, like this one, dealing with a variety of different historical periods.

Love that band.

I'm also a bit picky. Thankfully there has been a trend of 'musical archaeology' recently, with old written music of the period which has survived.

I have to recommend God is an Astronaut for drinking absinthe. They're my favorite modern band, a tremendously talented Irish post-rock group. Especially recommended if it's time to put that *serious* luvvin on a girl ;)

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

Jonathan Richman is playing right around the corner on the same day I'm out of town.

Thanks y'all.  The Constantines have been a band I've loved for a while.  It was a victory lap of sorts. :mbanana:  

 

Wilco and Modest Mouse tonight, with Vilya verte x2.

I've done that.  Not too bad.  ;)

 

Vilya works nicely with the new Arcade Fire, too.

Listen to a song a young man around here once wrote.


"Anti-alcoholics are unfortunates in the grip of water, that terrible poison, so solvent and corrosive that out of all substances, it has been chosen for washing and scourings, and a drop of water, added to a clear liquid like Absinthe, muddies it."

Dark and moody. Nice. I wonder what the soldiers did to her though in the A. Armada piece.
