Song for a Saturday morning

I really love XM radio. Sometimes I get tired of the way they play the same old shit all of the time, but sometimes they deviate from the norm and bring you something totally new and refreshing.

I had never heard of Michael Stearns before. I had assumed he was a new artist, since he does fit in nicely with many of the modern day ambient composers. But it turns out this song is over 30 years old! Whodathunkit?

I really need to buy this whole CD. And probably the rest of his discography as well. I feel the way about this song the way I do Eno’s “Discreet Music” and Burzum’s “Rundtgåing av den transcendentale egenhetens støtte”

Roland by Robert Farrugia

Bandcamp is one of my favorite web sites around. You can find music in any genre you enjoy, and a goodly amount is free or nearly free.

Robert Farrugia has some of the best ambient music I’ve heard in a while. Most of his music can be downloaded for free, though I’d recommend everybody pay something for it.

And there is more where that came from.
