Charles Mingus - Moanin'

My favourite jazz artist.

Strapping Young Lad - All Hail The New Flesh (live)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVifUqwui7A
One of the bands of Devin Townsend who is one of my all-time favourite artists.
This video is hilarious not only for the music itself but also for Townsend's commentaries and overall band's presence. Fucking suck it!

What you think about most, is what you become.

Yep, good stuff. Hope he delivers the EP.

I absolutely love new age music by Secret Garden and Enya from Northern Europe. Currently listening to "Dawn of a New Century".

Not many ppl would know this song… but I'm listening to "love bug" by M-Flo featuring BoA. It's so addictive!

Symphony No. 3 is one of my all time favourites. I have the Elektra Nonesuch recording with Dawn Upshaw doing the vocals.

I knew a girl who couldn't listen to this symphony without getting a headache. The constant up-and-down modulation was too much for her.

gorecki, haven't heard of the composer before…but that reminds me of the song by lamb. too bad they split up.
in my opinion all of their 4 albums are excellent though the fourth is my least favourite by far.
lamb - gorecki
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-f8PDZvPYs

one of my fav's
lamb - softly
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBiVG…eature=related

as my wife and i tell each other "two people can make a world"
and they can also make a wonderful band as well

nice someone put up a video (just an image) for this excellent halou track.
i love halou and finally picked up their new ep sawtooth, should be great.
halou - honeythief
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwxCiFKiVd4

halou nearly always reminds me of the game bloodlines, and there's one track in particular from their 2nd full length album wiser that sounds like one. maybe i'll do i side by side post at a later date

Lamb - B-line…. what a freakishly weird video.

And I sometimes listen to it when I'm going to bed. Makes me enter a state of calm.

AFAIK, the song is inspired by the symphony. Stating the obvious, am I?

So sad.. poor Kermit.

Throwing some electronic stuff to the mix

My Downfall by Venetian Snares is a great piece of post modern serious music, especially the way he combines digitally created symphonics with furious odd beats is simply mesmerizing!
Here's Integraation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTBb9Tc7fPw
and here My Half http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ld0iHQwrzj0

Endtroducing… by Dj Shadow is my favourite hip hop inspired record, here's
Midnight In A Perfect World, great moody song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jw8tL8PeD1Y
DJ Shadow's related project U.N.K.L.E. also came up with a lot of good stuff in its time, fine example is Be There:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSifh94B964

To round it up to five, I'm adding Star Guitar by Chemical Brothers because the videoclip by Michel Gondry is just stunning, audio-visualization at its best:

Siddal finally put up some new tracks. They're off of their "Mystery and the Sea" release, which is probably my least favorite of their work, but I can't pass up the chance to give this duo a little love.

"Oil Spills" by Siddal
(The original mix was more guitar-oriented. I think the prominence of the piano and drums in this mix makes the song sound a bit like a funeral march. Still showcases Liz's vocals, which are a little slice of heaven. Supposedly, Liz used to wear a set of angel wings in concert—a little over the top, but nothing wrong with a little truth in advertising. )

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Some good atmospheres there!

I've listened to the "Untitled" first and it promptly brought back memories of some songs I haven't listened to for quite a long time. So, that's what I'm currently doing.

Joy Division - The Eternal
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzuGZjHtV5A

The Cure - The Same Deep Water As You
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Yf6ieFJ32M

Esoteric - The Blood Of The Eyes (live)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8NpORhPynE

Joy Division - Decades (my favourite by them)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Viq93GGpRHA

Bjork - Unison (my favourite by her, ending this post on a more cheerful note)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBP8sJpxL5A
