Hello all, I’m Jessica, a new staff member. I’ve decided to resurrect this forgotten about section. Bringing you, the lovely readers, weekly recommendations on whatever I’m spinning. Typically I’m not listening to brand new music, but I promise, it’s all worth hearing — even if you end up hating it.
This week’s pick – Boards of Canada. I’ve never been a huge instrumental fan. Mostly because I know nothing about the mechanics of music, but also because it makes me nervous. I always wait and wait, anticipating vocals that never come. But with BOC, it was never like this. It’s happy, depressing, beautiful and nostalgic all at once.
I was instructed to lay down in the dark and listen to them with my eyes closed. I abided and I’d instruct you to do the same.
