    I'm listening to the audiobook of 13 by Kelley Armstrong.
    I got it for nothing [free gift with purchase of other audiobooks] and I have to admit it is fun to listen to. 13 is the last in a series of [you've guessed it] thirteen books [none of which I have read] so I was dropped right in to the story and it's sort of fun working things out.

    Now I'm listening a little to Russian folk/soldier songs from the time of the Tsars (to my knowledge)

    I put together another mixset that's in a style I'm happy to share here. It's dark and artsy electronic, and it's a fairly varied selection that ranges from psychedelic chill out and whimsy electronica to heavy industrial and rhythmic noise. It's all building up towards one of my favorite songs of the last year, Not To Be Here, by Covenant (it's a cover of Dimbodiu's song with the same name).

    Link here: Magical Mixtape #5 - Restoration

    Track list:
    1. Wu Wei - Point of Division 00:00
    2. Blue Bliss - Geometric Clouds 3:17
    3. Robosapiens - Crawling From The Wreckage 5:30
    4. Ego Likeness - New Legion (More Machine Than Man Remix) 8:59
    5. Poztman - Posthuman 12:00
    6. Skold - Escape 16:11
    7. Aes Dana - Exposure (Aes Dana Rmx) 19:46
    8. Semiomime - Walking Distance 24:50
    9. Yaarrohs - Amber 28:06
    10. Kirlian Camera - Black Tiger Rising 30:16
    11. Al Lover - Super Strength (Power Plants) feat. Morgan Delt 31:39
    12. Desert Dwellers - Saraswati's Twerkaba 34:22
    13. Seoan - Mystery of God 38:59
    14. KMFDM - These Boots are Made for Walking (Bombs Remix) 42:22
    15. Alien Delon, Celebrine - Horizon 45:12
    16. Shadow Totem - It Lives... 48:52
    17. The Emergency - Freedom from Religion 54:08
    18. Svarog - Reflection on the Rock 56:13

    That video isn't available in Ireland, but I found her on Spotify. It's not what I need just right now, but it does sound good so I'll put this away for a different time.

    She's amazing. But I also truly love Bluegrass!

    That reminds me. I should show some support for one of the local artists. It's not bluegrass, but more like some kind of jazz. Enjoy.

    Wow. She's really good! What a voice. Um...she's totally the type of sultry singer I listen to when I write certain stories so thank you for introducing me to someone new!

    Speaking of Bluegrass, I always like to joke that since I'm from Alaska of course I'd like it haha.

    Glad you like it. I'll try and pass it on when I see her next.

    Speaking of Bluegrass... it's one of those genres I have a really bad grasp on. I know it exist and I've got a vague impression of what it's about, but it's not something I've really figured out.

    ...and whenever the topic comes up for discussion it seems someone has to link this one:

    I have no idea why I've been so much into banjos and fiddles lately.



    Svrt: Bluegrass has its Southern roots in America so maybe that's why? Think banjos, fiddles, violins, guitars, and cowboy boots. :D It might sound similar to country but it's not the same at all. Country has more of a twang (I'm not a country fan) whereas Bluegrass has a more...what's the word I'm looking for...string-fest.

    P.S.
    There's no music funner to dance to than Bluegrass!

    My latests mixset is featured on musicto.com's Essay Writing playlist, here: The Essay 3 - Nils Ödlund

    I got into talking about music with the guy who runs the site and apparently there's a bit of a scene for study-music. It's instrumental music with a steady rhythm, and slow non-intrusive melodies. I think I saw someone posting about studying for exams - this might be good? :)

    Hey, I know Nils. Or, rather, I'm in his Facebook group, Dreamtime Tale Fantasy. I'll have to give a listen.

    I found a bunch of stuff over at archive.org. Search on psybient. Very much to my writing taste.

    That's probably a different Nils. I don't think I'm part of that group - yet. Should I be a part of that group? :)

    I often go by Odlund since I moved out of Sweden, as that's easier for people to type round these parts.
