Been having a bit of a funk in regards to my interests lately, especially my musical taste.
I’m just bored of what I’ve always listened to.
It was pop, then then classical, then jazz, then bluegrass. And that was good enough for so long.
But lately, it went
African Mbira music
Tinariwen (African/rock hybrid?)
Thelonious Monk (weird jazz?)
Kanye West (The Life of Pablo – what else?)
Sylvan Esso (indie electro?)
And then a pop phase:
Some sad punk girl
Ibeyi (Cuban punk?)
The Paper Kites, Luke Dick (indie pop folk)
And then I discovered BOBBY MCFERRIN and promptly downloaded all of his albums
Jesse fuckin’ McCartney (Just So You Knoooooooooowww)
Dave Brubeck (all the time signatures)
And I’m still so lost – nothing’s sticking.
Along the same lines, in a very fuck-it sort of way, I bleached the shit out of my hair and dyed it purple.
