Sipping Absinthe ;) Listenin' to Music

Recommended Posts

Terminus (yummy) while listening to Sidestepper and Senor Coconut - two of my favorite latin-ish sort of jazz bands. Sidestepper is led by a British bass player - hence an attractively heavy bass line and brass. Senor Coconut - an almost novelty German band covering a wide variety of both latin and western music who sounds to me a bit like the Mothers of Invention meets Perez Prado. High-quality musicianship all around. Fun music and good booze - what more can you ask of life on planet earth?

The Act We Act was always my favorite song from that album, but Hoover Dam is good, too.

We like that one as well. We're big fans of Bob from his Husker Du days.

Disturbed...yes, the band...doing Sound of Silence...this absolutely blew me away., in the same way that Johnny Cash's Hurt did. :shock: :worshippy:

 

What a fitting way to savor my last sips of the nonpareil Parabola.

I wonder how many here are like me and have particular artists that they tend to listen to when drinking absinthe? For me, it's Peter Murphy. If I even listen to his music at any other time I immediately crave a glass.

While I've reached the point where i think I smell absinthe pretty much all day long, I have not yet reached the point where it mandates specific music. Is that the next step on the absinthe degeneracy trail? :twitchsmile:

Belewfripp- that happens to me too sometimes! I'll be somewhere and all of a sudden smell absinthe. That doesn't happen with any other spirit. I wonder if that's common among us?

United States of America. The best tripping band ever...or so I've heard :twitchsmile:, and Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA.
