Why do we like this?

Spiritual Wildlife

I have always loved Jose Gonzales, not only because they were my first dip into the world of indie-folk, but also because I can never listen to a Gonzales song without feeling some version of immense calm.

“Visions” is, in the purest of words, a holistic and spiritual experience, everything about this song is earthy, natural, and untouched by the new age of production. Jose Gonzales has always been a purveyor of pure sounds – whether sad, uplifting, honest, or loving. “Visions” is comforting…immensely so. It is the literal sound you’d hear when looking out over your porch into the wilderness.

This song is a soft hug, a reassuring word, and an immensely enthralling experience that doesn’t disappoint, it doesn’t mislead, and like most Gonzales songs it teaches us in a very calm, collected, and powerfully comforting way about the power of just breathing in peace and quiet.

Arachnid Arrangements

I use to listen to a lot of Spanish Guitar when I was younger, a lot of guitar circle instrumentations, one of my close friends was an avid guitarist and huge Rodrigo y Gabriela fan. This song makes me wanna pick up a guitar and strum (probably poorly.)

The title “Spiderweb” is a perfect identifier for the type of song you’re getting into. If you’ve ever watched a spider make a web (specifically small erratic ones) it’s a mesmerizing experience and, while the whole process itself might seem chaotic, the end product tends to be quite the opposite — a planned and staged masterwork.

The song is quite easy on the ears, not pushing you to focus on it too much, but ironically in being so simple it becomes a mesmerizing and almost hypnotic play on one’s ears.

This on a record player: dreams!

Expressionist Exhibition

If I walk through the Louvre with an audio guide… I’d want to hear this.

“Axis Bent” starts with almost innocent and beautifully calm drums, before slowly building into something far more expressionistic. Like a painter of the style itself, Ryley Walker creates something in an almost improvisational way. Everything seems created on the spot and yet satisfyingly cohesive — free form lyrics, a guiding vocal performance, and an instrumental value that feels almost like a group of friends just creating on top of each other.

This song is possibly befitting of any type of visual stimuli, but all I can think about is painting, either watching a painting or painting something myself.

Artsy, expressionist, free, and bohemian, welcome in any gallery or playlist I’d think.
