Harrison Birtwistle - The Triumph of Time

How to draw an image for these sounds by Harrison?

It creeps on you, there is a great tension. A lot of classical music lures me to the freedom of abstracted landscapes.

Genesis - The Return Of The Giant Hogweed

Hogweed was a highlight of a Steve Hackett show I saw a few years back. I never thought I'd ever hear this live as it is a 'dads' sort of thing prog rock I suppose! Or is that grandad?

Here marked in the latin heracleum mantegazzianum  'For Kew'.

A scary live version, my dad really used to scare me with this song belting out.

PJ Harvey - River Anacostia


This song from the latest album is so inspiring! It is the first time since the last Portishead album years ago that a track made me feel a bit sick it was so fine.
