    And a few other songs from their Tampere gig:

    Also going to hear Mozart's Great Mass in C Minor for the first time, so I've been trying to get into that. It's not an easy piece like Requiem (or perhaps I've listened to Requiem so many times that it seems easy): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez0kqVShFEs

    The new EP from Audrey Sylvain (from Amesoeurs, KPN), it's not amazing but I always like what she does for some reason: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIycbq_50kQ

    I've been listening to Elder, especially their album Reflections of a Floating World. It's really well done Psych/Prog metal type stuff, very good for background music while I work. I'm not sure how well it'll hold up to repeated listens, but so far I've been enjoying it. It's at least temporarily scratching the Mastodon itch.

    Here's what I've been listening to lately. If you have Spotify, Spotitude can generate these visualizations.

    I recently discovered Sparks, and have been obsessed. They were part of glam in its early days, but their song writing wasn't typical of any act of the time. Propaganda is a pretty solid album during their "glam phase". I was put off for the first couple of listens, but after repeated listens I got hooked. They eventually branched off into different genres. No.1 In Heaven for example is an electronic album produced by Giorgio Moroder which influenced late Joy Division/New Order.

    I've been listening to Yung Bae's new "Bae 5" album a lot, really solid future funk album. In particular I really like Must Be Love (and that video is perfect and hilarious).

    I also keep going back to Arcade High - New Impressions, quite a few catchy synthwave tracks on this album.

    The new The Appleseed Cast album is really good too. I've only listened through it a couple of times so far, but I expect it'll get quite a few more plays when I'm in the mood for that style of music.

    This one track sticks out... I had been all worked up due to an online conversation, and then I got a YouTube notification from Marvel83'. These synthwaves just chilled me out so much. So I posted it on r/listentothis in the hope that it would help other folks, and it blew up a bit. I eventually bought the EP from the bandcamp to show some love and appreciation.

    Additionally, I dug deep tonight and this ancient track arose from PJ Harvey, The Garden.
