Witnessed Florence and the Machine last week in Portland, OR. Best concert ever! The single most amazing performance of an artist that I have had the chance to experience. The show was filled with song and dance. Difficult to describe.
I have enjoyed her music for a long while now. Give it a go...
What am I listening to? Currently I'm torturing myself listening to song that typically evoke a feeling of sorrow, especially when viewed with the video while listening. Just a couple of examples, which I think Haru Haru, is the one that hits me in the feels hardest of the 2.
Haru Haru, some explanation on. In the beginning the guy and girl talking by the car. The short guy in the hat walks out finding them and starts fiddling with a couples ring. The ring being handed to the guy by the girl is the mate to that couple ring worn by the guy in the hat. You'll note on the TV in the first chorus you will see the short guy and the girl being played from video. They were after all a couple. There is a reason behind what's going on and it's a tragic and sad one that if you pay attention in the second chorus, you will see the girl fall to the floor and as she moves her hand away from her head, something will be in her hand. At this point, one of the guys breaks down and lets the short guy know what's going on because he just can't take it anymore. This is followed by a unwanted meeting in the hall by the short guy and the guy he fought with in the beginning of the video. He stops the short guy in the hall and gives him the couples ring she wore apologizing to him for his part his part in the deception and letting him know one other thing I won't disclose. The language barrier can be difficult but I hope I didn't give away so much as to ruin the whole video for anyone who decides to watch it.

I'm going to have to check for that one on iTunes. I'd like to hear it in our car.
"Modal" in the title refers to the use of modes, as in modal jazz. Modes are really just scales other than the traditional ones to which we have become accustomed in western music over the last few hundred years, major and minor.
Here is the companion piece, recorded four months earlier:
As for music, iv been listening to a lot of early Pumpkins stuff lately..
Girl named Sandoz.. Good "bluesy" Pumpkins song.
Starla.. One of my favorite songs by the Pumpkins. Almost the whole song is just one big build up, really good.
As for stuff i like to learn and listen too, iv been watching lots of Jordan Peterson's interviews and lectures. I find it super interesting how he gets into the biology of how our psychology and behavior works, "why we do things we do" and stuff like that. Good stuff.

Last night it was Little Feat, 'Waiting for Columbus' on vinyl. All four sides. Great live album!
One of my all time favorite albums by my absolute favorite band ever. I can't even count the number of times I have gone to see them starting back in the early '70s. Little Feat and Zappa are the two most stunning bands I have ever seen. They are in a class by themselves.
And my favorite Neon Park cover art.

A fave of mine, their sounds, their resonance, sounds good. This one from 2:56 too, probly my fave of their guitar. I always wished they did more guitar. More guitar moments, start from 2:30 on I also dig Jordan Peterson.
Yeah Soma is an amazing song, another one where the whole song is basically a build up until the end.
Yeah after the "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" album, Billy kinda got away from guitars and into electronica. And the band pretty much went to crap after that. Shame cause their first 4 albums where all amazing.
These days Billy Corgan is the owner of TNA wrestling lol.
