5 Albums I Can’t Live Without
The Austrian electronic duo paints aural mindscapes that transport. The sound of peace and harmony hurling together into a void, breaking into pieces, then coming back together.
The SuburbsArcade Fire
We’re there. At the house. In the neighborhood. On the streets. Drifting into nothingness. Feeling everything. High hopes, but with that unshakeable veil of reality. Pure coming of age. Hopes. Dreams. Everything is possible. I think I once looped this record for 48 straight hours while traveling.
RÜFÜS DU SOL
A time lapse of emotions. They lost themselves, rediscovered who they were and wanted to be, and then transformed. This incredible work is their journey but it feels like it’s ours, too. It’s got all of us in it.
Moon Safari is a brilliantly syncopated orchestral, downtempo dream floating on a cloud-shaped Rhodes keyboard. All you have to do is press play.
Listening to Amniotic is a grounding, centering journey. Once it settles you, it will lift you up. And you’re a better person than you were before listening.
Music Has the Right to Children
Boards of Canada
First time hearing this gem of humanity was at Sway in the Lower East Side, 1999. The album wraps its arms around you, then slowly elevates you into outer space.
Led Zeppelin III
This album sounds like a solid gold unicorn flying through the clouds, wearing a leather jacket, drinking ice cold beers. At times messy. At times beautiful. All heart, everywhere.
A rare moment where the Swedish metal band does not scream, does not break. Pure, unexpected beauty.
