Bonniesongs ~ Strings

A single string can be a fragile thing, but together they can be mighty. A spider can get around with one gossamer thread but it won’t catch much, yet if it combines its lines into a web some unsuspecting fly

Enno Voss ~ Currents

A recent Bud Light ad portrays a commoner in a stockade.  His crime:  ordering an “autumnal mead.”  The tagline:  “For the many, not the few.”  I sympathize with the commoner, because I’m one of the few; I like things to

Jerusalem In My Heart ~ Daqa’iq Tudiaq

There’s a lot to unpack with this record, but the easiest entry point is just to listen.  What do you hear?  What do you associate with what you hear?  How does the music make you feel? Arabic music sounds different

Fall Music Preview ~ Rock and Post-Rock

Miss the heat?  Then you’re probably not near Italy’s Mount Etna or Hawai’i’s Kilauea.  Rock music provides the perfect soundtrack for an eruption, and this fall’s crop has riffs to spare.  Like last year, the best albums were slow to
