Music

What you listening to? At the moment I'm listening to Cold War Kids. I find myself looking for new sounds that understand the present and do something positive with it, in general, in my mind, there's a lot of extremely poor shit out there, at least in the commercial realm.

it is rare to find that type of sincerity, at least in the "mainstream" media

Yes nice, same here, just clocking in with some piano virtuosity.

Also this one, the repeated tune on the synthesizer, for me, is the sound of a tragic acceptance of the world and its ways.

I'm in two minds about posting this link as I know this music does not appeal to many. For me, it's the most beautiful piece of sacred music I've ever heard. Spem in alium by Thomas Tallis, a 16th century English composer. It begins softly, but stay with it because it develops into the most sublime crescendo ever! Even those who would normally dismiss this kind of music have been known to play it again...
