VAST - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
Yep, still like VAST. Feels like cheating to buy an artist I already know I like for this A Year In Music resolution/thingy.
Maybe that's why I bought some The Books music too.

Or that's my story now and I'm sticking to it.
Edit: Shit, this The Books album is fucking cool. It's two artists sitting down jamming on various instruments - guitar, violin, banjo - and overlay samples of various things into a semi-coherent, on-the-cusp-of-ambient/noise music. It's really meaty. When I say "various things" I mean them chatting about body pats, the sound of 2x4s falling on a sidewalk, breaks squealing.

Wow, it's just really neat!

Current Mood: rejuvenated Dancy
Current Music: VAST - Candle

ooooooooh! VAST!

Going to make that next up on my iTunes - haven't listened to it for a while.

Thanks! :D

Check out Nightnoise too if you like VAST. I think they're up your alley.

How could one NOT like VAST!?! jk.
VAST singlehandedly made the 8.5 hour drive from Oregon to home (central CA) with my father-in-law almost bearable.

I'll have to check out The Books. Thanks for the heads up.
