AMOS: 20

Skipping around here, a lot. There is so much to listen to that any sort of thematic, or organized trip through recorded music would be more than any month of Sundays could allow. Follwing up on early 20thC culture is some more late 20thC culture. Soak it up!

AMOS: 19 admittedly late

Keeping it pretty musical around here. Nothing like a slow build to really appreciate the gravity of the crescendo. Paris in the 1920's, what I would give to experience that. Where I can live it is through Ravel's Bolero. Two recordings grace my collection so, I decided to take the Pepsi challenge. In the left corner, the Boston Symphony Orchestra lead by Charles Munch. In the right corner, the New York Philharmonic lead by Leonard Bernstein. A classic tete a tete. I can almost see the ballet dancers floating through my living room. Beginning as a single cell organism and ending like a party of drunken elephants and rhinoceroses trudging through the jungle. The recording lead by Bernstein has a particular, inexplicable refinement that rises to the top. Play it again.

AMOS: 18 right on time

George Szell conducts the Cleveland Orchestra through Debussy's La Mer and Ravel's Daphnis et Chloé, Suite No. 2 and Pavane pour une infant défunte. Nothing like throwing a little early 20th century culture for good measure.

AMOS: 16a, b, and c—from the nada

I remember this night very well. We had a bit of a dinner party. Cousins Paul, Joanne, and Caroline came over. Caroline was so excited to finally meet (and have) her younger cousin. Steve Breder was there too!!! We took some inspiration from Husker Dü, Warehouse Songs and Stories

Both Paul and Steve played a record of their choosing

Paul chose Flaming Lips, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. Probably for two reasons: 1, this is a great record and 2, Caroline also loves this album (she is 4 btw)

Steve chose an all time fav of mine. The third record of a fantastic discography by none other than fIREHOSE. fROMOHIO. Freakin' love this album! Thanks Steve!

AMOS: 15

This is one I could listen to over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again.

AMOS: 14

All of this is so exhausting
And i am ready for
it to stop
All of this has been exhausting
And i am ready

Are you keeping track?
Are you keeping, keeping track?

Happy Valentine's Day

AMOS: 12

The music of a mad man. Post nut house psychedelic session in Nashville, proved poor for the record label but oh, so rich for the music world. Hope you can enjoy this as much as I have...

AMOS: 11 (on 12, 12:12)

Godspeed You! Black Emperor Yanqui U.X.O.

day and night
day is night is day
from now until
the final day

AMOS: 8 (on 9)

chaos, sublime, chaos, sublime, chaos, sublime, chaos, sublime

much like our lives these days.

in a flash
everything comes together as one
there is no need for a subject

Mellow and short; just what the doctor ordered. Naptime again...

2nd LP at home. Wanted to spice things up a bit yet, still keep things on the chill side of life.

Tortoise's 2009 effort Beacons of Ancestorship. Genius electro/rock/old school jamz


Sunday, February 5, 2012

AMOS: 5 (make it 4 again, for the first time)

We made it home!!! (Truth be told, this is two weeks post dated—but that is arbitrary back story.) Not having "slept" in 36 hours, we really needed something mellow. Nothing like sticking to a theme. Breaking out the vinyl now...


Saturday, February 4, 2012


Equal pop and mellow space-out jamz. btw it is still within the first 12 hours of your life at this point...

AMOS: 2-2a

Next came this little 2 song EP, hence 2a:

Mr. Pajo and team(s) are all up in this mess.

We had been planning on creating a playlist for laboring, made mostly of soothing music. I finally began to compile said list once labor pains had begun so, I was not really taking the time to make the perfect playlist. I began to dump entire albums into a list aptly titled, Baby Time. Once we actually made it to the hospital we never even played the list until Owen arrived. It was about 3:30AM when we were transferred from the delivery room into the maternity ward. Time seemed to disappear. We were so amp'd on adrenaline that there was no notion of tired at all. Somewhere around 4 or 4:30 we remembered that we had music with us. I started Baby Time, and after a few select tracks came Brian Eno's Music for Films. I think it actually helped us all fall asleep, even if for just short bits of rest. Little Owen cried a lot. Pretty sure he was tired and freaked out being in his new, dry environment. It didn't phase us much, we were very happy that he was finally here...
