Day 233: Ostinato Del Caminito by Black Prairie

3 Feb

This song is incredible! It’s a combination of bluegrass, folk, french music, and a little bit of avant-garde dark material that makes it completely epic!

I love Black Prairie, and I’d say more but I have to get back to my homework.

So enjoy “Ostinato Del Caminito” by Black Prairie

Day 134: ‘mid The Green Fields Of Virginia by The Carter Family

2 Oct

Hey guys, if this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

I got a record player yesterday, so today I went to House Of Records (located on 13th and High) to buy some cheap vinyls to listen to. While I was there, the clerks blasted some sweet, bluegrass-y tunes that totally hooked me in, and the older clerk handed me a Carter Family vinyl to get me started on my bluegrass collection.

I took it home and put it on and instantly fell in love. It’s sweet, old, and happy sounding… everything I want in a great vinyl!

So, I picked one of my favorite tunes off of side one called “‘mid The Green Fields Of Virginia”. Enjoy!

Day 122: Go To Sleep (Little Man Being Erased) by Radiohead

I’m back! I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in a few days.

First, I’d like to thank Ridemus for posting yesterday! The last few days have been incredibly busy and hectic and by the end of the day I was pooped! So huge snaps, whistles, and claps for Ridemus!

Also, I’m sorry for missing a day! In response to that, I am adding an extra day to the blog at the end of the project! That way, I can make up for this last few days.

Okay! On with the blog!

I’m back in Eugene! And I’m living in an apartment with two of my best friends, so I couldn’t be happier! Now it’s time to get everything put together and looking like a real living space!

For tonight’s topic, I wanted to feature one of my favorite songs ever: Radiohead’s “Go To Sleep (Little Man Being Erased)”.

I’m a huge fan of the show “Firefly” (for those of you not familiar with this gem, it is a sci-fi fantasy show about a bunch of space cowboy bounty hunters. It’s humorous, intense, and really fantastic). The show is awesome, but what’s so cool is the music. Because it’s a western-like show, they use a bluegrassy score to set the mood.

Now, this show doesn’t have anything to do with the Radiohead song, but whenever I hear this song, I always think of “Firefly.” It’s that bluegrass feel and lyrics that just get me every time…  This song is fantastic!

So enjoy “Go To Sleep (Little Man Being Erased)” by Radiohead!
