Bernard Hermann - Taxi Driver OST
This is just fantastic. So atmospheric. I was listening to it in the university library earlier and forgot to put my earphones in and it was the most awkward experience of my life.

Anthony "Rebop" Kwaku Bah - Anthony "Rebop" Kwaku Bah (1973)

Hadn't heard this in a while, so I decided to give it a listen. Interesting and thoroughly enjoyable mix of jazz/funk with tribal percussion from Ghanaian percussionist Anthony "Rebop" Kwaku Baah. Probably best known as a member of "Traffic" from 1971 to 1974, he also played with "Can" from 1977 to 1979. This is his second solo album.

I don't know why I put off listening to this for about two years, as this is some really lovely ambient. It's pretty long, and I understand how this could easily bore someone, but I don't mind at all.

Nausea - Extinction (1990)
Pissed-off, politically-charged crust punk with male and female lead vocals. Every song on this album is killer. Hey, there's even a reggae section thrown into one song.



Killing Joke - Night Time (1985)
Yeah, I'm only getting into Killing Joke now. I'm also enjoying Pandemonium at the moment but this album is amazing, I kind of prefer their more post-punk sound over their heavier industrial rock sound. And of course Eighties is a seriously great tune.

Colin Stetson - New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light

This is an album of Reichian saxophone whirlwinds that showcase Stetson's circular breathing, mostly. I was initially disappointed by this release but on revisiting it, I've come to like it more. Stetson is kind of a one trick pony in that he does this arpeggiated form of minimalism that's similar to (as mentioned earlier) Steve Reich's pieces, but there is still quite a bit of variety. My biggest complaint on this album is the cringe-worthy guest spots from the vocalist of Bon Iver, Bon Iver. What he does in his own band works with the music, but with Stetson it just does not mesh well, save for the track "Brute" where he shows off his heavier side.

My favourite track is the title track "To See More Light", a powerhouse 15 minute piece where Stetson goes all out in his talents without becoming too abrasive. On the contrary, it's a rather soothing piece (and album, for the most part). Stetson also simultaneously sings and plays saxophone in this track and others to good effect. I prefer his other albums to this one, but "To See More Light" is definitely his best piece. Check this one out (as well as the other two parts of the series, New History Warfare, Vol. One and New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges) for a unique listening experience.

DJ Q - Ineffable (2014)

Ahh man this is some good stuff. Nice mix of garage, future garage, electronic, neat vocals and some cloudier stuff. Real nice.

The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream

If Kurt Vile took up speed instead of weed he might start making music like this. Which makes sense considering Kurt Vile used to be in this band. Really great stuff, I have a good feeling this will end up in my best of 2014 list.

I'm in love with this album at the moment. It makes for perfect driving music as well.

Default Arcade Fire – The Suburbs

Albums You're Digging II-arcade-fire-suburbs-art1.jpg
While this is far from my favorite album, I listen to it all the time.
I frequently listen to it when I do homework because it's so relaxing.

The first four songs flow so well from one to the other it's unbelievable how well it was constructed. The Suburbs is definitely my favorite song, though I do like the last track really well.
