    Lots of stuff, but Avril stood out on the drive this morning.

    Baroque concerti cranked up to celebrate a friend's survival of open heart surgery earlier today: I bet even the critters out in the meadow could hear the joy: J.S. Bach, Concerti for Three and Four Harpsichords. Music for a quadruple bypass success!

    Favorite live performance of Lily Was Here - Dave Stewart and Candy Dulfer, Amsterdam, 2001. Dave plays melodious sidekick to Candy's riffs for awhile but then really gets into it for a bit around the 3:!0 mark and their wrap is great.

    That looks (and probably sounds) brilliant.

    Must order it for myself; I have listened to little by way of music since my mother passed away, and haven't bought any new music this year, yet.

    One of the best (and my personal favorite) Unplugged albums ever. Man. Remember when MTV was about the music?

    Thank you, @LizKat: I have just placed an order for this piece of music.

    And I have just now received an email to the effect that it has been despatched. Once again, my grateful thanks, @LizKat.

    I've been streaming some of those on Apple Music this morning; the tracks have a wide range of mood and style, he certainly offered up some quite spiky social commentary. In that regard Bashung reminded me of the slightly younger Francis Cabrel.

    I first heard his music played in one of my favourite restaurants/wine bars, French owned, French staffed, French run; they had to tell me who it was, (in fact, they wrote his name down for me), but I especially loved the track Madame Rêve to such an extent that anytime I had a glass of wine, or a cheeseboard and a glass of wine, they would play Alain Bashung (Madame Rêve) for me.

    Crash Test Dummies - The Ghosts That Haunt Me
    Really cool folksy-alternative song. The lyrics are pretty sweet too. A band I was into from before the internet was a thing... so cool to discover some of their older music i'd never heard.

    Cool song. Also... when that loaded up it displayed an ad for selling and buying used trucks! :D

    Tracks from a couple of Brazilian Girls albums this afternoon. For those unaware, only one of the band is a girl and not even one of them is Brazilian, so... so what? Fine music for what feels like a Saturday, I'm already advancing to holiday mode out of what's theoretically still just another Friday. My two favorite Brazilian Girls albums are Talk to La Bomb and the New York City one.

    Here's Sweatshop from their Talk to La Bomb album


    There's another video set to this music. It's one that addresses the track title more explicitly, certainly bringing to mind the line in the song lyrics that runs

    "23 chinois dans une chambre de 10 metres carrés"
    ("23 Chinese in a room of 10 square meters"]
    although this video is not portraying a garment sweatshop in New York City. I have heard that this particular video is or was blocked for awhile in some countries.

    I have a couple of tracks from the Dancer in the Wind album, Going Home and Aileen Duinn. They are beautifully sung, and whoever plays the recorder in them is also very accomplished. It might even be the group's vocalist Paya Lehane, who apparently launched her musical career at age 4, having played the recorder well enough to have become a precocious celebrity in her native Czech Republic.

    Agree that the tracks which feature the recorder are stunning, and exceptionally accomplished; I have two of their albums and must say that I love them.

    Likewise.

    Most of the other quiltmakers I know also have our official motto on at least a coffee mug:

    Quilting forever, housework whenever...

    But today I kicked off a morning of unofficial start-of-summer chores with a play-through of Muse's album Black Holes and Revelations. :rolleyes: Love the music, hate the not unexpected discoveries I'm making with my raft of cleaning tools, starting with the fact that dust bunnies under the beds in the guestroom upstairs have partied down all winter.
