New Music Tuesday

Few new things out today, one is the new one by Ra Ra Riot which I am sad to say I am not impressed with on first listen. Maybe I will warm up to it after a few more listens.

One thing is for sure & that is GRUNGE has risen again! Soundgarden's new single is straight out of 1991, it is crazy good. If the whole album is like this watch out! The first single is Black Rain & you can check it out here.

Until next week PEACE.

New Music Tuesday

"The Suburbs" by the Arcade Fire is a mesmerizing album that is filled with regret, reflection, love, loss and the never ending urge to escape. Some could say it's a reflection of an adult looking back on youth or of a youth running towards adulthood. In any case the Arcade Fire have created one of the best albums of the past 20 years. This visually superb album creates such a vast and rich landscape that it's easy for the listener to get lost in all of its glory. "The Suburbs" easily fits into the modern rock scene but yet at the same time it sounds like it could have been released in the 1970s. That's the thing, there is no here or there. There is no future or past. Today is no different from yesterday and your children feel the same way you did when you were their age. It's a never ending search for an escape from the norm, capitalism and progress. Empty, alone and fear. Is this youth or adulthood? It's for the listener to decide.

When I bought this album last week I was at home in Northern Michigan taking care of my Mom as she recovered from outpatient surgery. The album made an immediate impact on me. I began to reflect on my youth and contemplate on how my life has turned out so far. As I drove down roads I haven't been on in years, the album played out like a perfect soundtrack to my surroundings. I saw places that reminded me of how we once were. We were those kids grabbing the keys and driving all night looking for an escape. And how we are still those kids searching.

The last album that I can think of that made such an impact on me was "Ok Computer" by Radiohead. Like that album "The Suburbs" is a groundbreaking release that will change this generation (and Arcade Fire) forever.

Pink Bloom

Today I begin my new series that explores the extreme beauty of our environment. In the spirit of Van Gogh, Warhol, O'Keefe & many others I examine the extraordinary charm of the flower. The flower series will be large in number and will explore the vast splendor of nature and color. I hope you enjoy. Today's piece is titled "Pink Bloom."

The Sky Burns Violet

There was no new music Tuesday this week because I had to return home to take care of my mother as she recovered from outpatient surgery (things are all good). More new music next week.

A wise man once told me "you should do more photography." Well I am jumping back on that wagon with today's piece titled "The Sky Burns Violet." Peace & have a good weekend!
