waves of sound

There are waves of sound surrounding us. They travel through the air and if we position our ears right, we can catch them and our brain will turn them to sound. We hear something. Lately, I’m trying to find the correct way to listen to the conversation between the flowers in the garden. They are chattering almost non-stop, I just can’t hear it. Yet. I’m working on it. I’m sure it’ll be beautiful.

Until I’m able to hear the flowers, here are some other soundwaves. Open your ears and indulge in these beautiful albums that you can stream online. All free, all beautiful.

album cover - Roll the Bones by Shaky Graves

Shaky Graves – Roll the Bones

I’ve had this open as a tab in my browser for days, but only got around to listening today. I love the deep, scratchy voices, the harmonies, the quiet and quietly threatening tone of it – it’s a little bit dark, a little bit longing, a little bit stark and a little bit lonesome and it makes me sway and hum along and daydream of the desert.

Check out the cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on fire”!

album cover - Lowe Country

Lowe Country – The songs of Nick Lowe

A collection of Nick Lowe songs covered by country/folk artists. Good original material, good covers.




album cover - Live in New York City by Paul Simon

Paul Simon – Live in New York City

No need to loose words about Paul Simon, right? This is a live recording and it covers old and more recent material in equal proportions.



album cover - Palindrome Hunches by Neil HalsteadNeil Halstead – Palindrome Hunches

A quiet record with a dark theme that I enjoyed very much. The record. And the theme.
