I have spent the last couple of days listening to music of which the celebrated Mr K would not approve.
I have been spinning the alt.country breathy slowness of Spain and their lovely Blue Moods. Simple, with so much space that you have time to breathe between individual strings in a strum.
Also, I have been digging Toronto’s own lo-fi melancholy-man, Hayden. I’ve got ‘Skyscraper National Park’ going round and round and round. I love the simplicity of his instrumentation, and the way he can incorporate humble, honest stories into a song, with a chorus. I am going to get more of his records.
