Hugs of Thinder, the latest from Broken Social Scene. Great album but what else is new from that bunch?

My eldest daughter sent me a two disk CD of selected tracks from every Peter Jackson movie with a Hobbit in it.

There is something about cruising down these windy roads to the accompaniment of the riders of Rohan that is delightful.

And while I do not get to hear Annie Lennox sing it I still appreciate the sound of Into the West. Makes for great sunset accompaniement.

Currently queued up in Hoopla for driving and walking:

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Damn the Torpedoes. While I've known of this album's (the third from Petty & The Heartbreakers) existence since it came out in '79, I didn't really get into Petty until about a decade later so I've never listened to it before. Feels like I have, though. Several familiar songs ("Refugee", "Here Comes My Girl") and the sound is, as you would expect, vintage Petty. Wrong music for my Civic, though. You really should be cruising back highways in a seventies-era 'Stang or Trans-am to get the proper feeling.

Moody Blues, To Our Children's Children's Children. A rare Moodies album that I have not listened to before. Also rare in that I'm kind of "meh" on it. I usually love anything from the 1967-78 edition of the band. Not terrible, but no real standout songs ("Eyes of a Child" comes close) and the album just doesn't seem to rise to the standard set by predecessors like On the Threshold of a Dream and In Search of the Lost Chord.

Moody Blues. On the Threshold of a Dream. To make sure my blah reaction to the last one really was a fluke and not me getting jaded or something, I downloaded this album that I used to own on cassette and that I rank as my favorite of that era of the band. To Our... was a fluke. The album holds up beautifully. Several classic songs ("Lovely to See You Again", "Are You Sitting Comfortably?", "Send Me No Wine", "Have you Heard?/The Voyage") and a well-structured album on a loose theme with no real duds on it.

On Spotify today listening to Jazz. Their Big Band channel in the morning, in the afternoon I've been listening to one called Coffee Table Jazz. Some lovely, softer jazz music. Just listened to a stunningly beautiful 8 minute opus called Landmarks by Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band.

Be careful of the EDGE ... you could get drum doubt ... caused by light hammering of Max swells waves ...

So, I'm listening to Jazztronica on Spotify today. Varies from purely electronic jazz to mixes of electronic with more traditional instrumentation (sax, etc.). No real standout music, but quite a nice channel to have on while I work.

Working away one day I put YouTube on in the background. I was playing some Metric, and one of the YouTube suggestions was a band (ironically) called "Chvrches". Pronounced "Churches". Been playing their concerts in the background for stretches.

Little M introduced me to Chvrches a while ago. Definitely one of the better newer bands out there (and I can see why they would be an "if you listen to..." choice for Metric, who I also like).

Listening to the Blues & Roots Rock channel on Spotify today. Picked it based on the fact that my current favorite band Whitehorse is on the playlist so I figured it would have music in that vein. It has it in spades, though the best track so far has been "Heavy Is the Head" by the Zac Brown Band featuring the late Chris Cornell which definitely leans to the "Rock" end of that title.
