because i haven’t posted about music in a while, here are some of the bands i’m really into right now:
sigur ros– takk was my favorite album of 2005 and now með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly) is probably my favorite album of this year so far. these guys just know what i want to hear in my music. namely, swells and great melody.
cherry ghost– thirst for romance is a great album. pure and simple.
thomas newman– this awesome summer movie season (as well as xfm’s cinemagic station) has revitalized my love of scores, and wall-e is the one playing on repeat right now. newman’s strength is emphasizing emotion, and wall-e is great at this. (also good- but more fun- is kung fu panda by hans zimmer and john powell!)
and yes, i saw hellboy. loved it. more on that later.
