Superb performance of György Ligeti's Mysteries of the Macabre by the formidable Barbara Hannigan and the Gothenburg Symphony.
The Rest Is Noise provides an excellent overview of 20th century classical music. It is also a joy to read. I'm glad that I finally came around to reading it and now wish I had done so earlier.
Mini documentary about the creative process behind one of electronic music's most mysterious classics. It's also one of my favourite albums.
Another excellent new track from the upcoming new album by the War on Drugs. An old/new song by Radiohead. A powerful new song by Zola Jesus. Everything Now by Arcade Fire. Bob Dylan's 2016 Nobel lecture in literature. And an on-line museum of vanishing sounds.
New music by Kamasi Washington, Kendrick Lamar and The War on Drugs
