    I've recently fallen in love with Synthwave. Or rather, I recently discovered that some of my favorite soundtracks from the last couple of years are part of a whole genre.



    My favorite is Pertubator, but everything on Trevor Something Does Not Exist is pure gold. The cover of Enjoy the Silence is probably the best.



    Maybe you have to be born in the 80s to fully get it. Seems like almost all the artists were as well.

    I recently decided to revisit Regina Spektor's music, and I'm so glad I did. My favorite of her albums has got to be Soviet Kitsch. It's jazzier than her newer stuff, and it has this lush complexity to it without being cluttered. I don't like sparse music (which is probably the reason why I don't like most experimental/esoteric genres); I need something with some body and noise to it to give it life. This album is really great in that respect.

    Has anyone heard of Sound Cloud? It's amazing! I was able to put together a list of Jeremy Soule's compositions from Oblivion to Skyrim and beyond. My husband tossed me the headphones last night because he's already sick of listening to the list over and over again lol. Hey! It's great for concentrating.

    Soundcloud, sure. Mixcloud, too. And, one I've plugged before, the music section of the Internet Archive.

    As a follow-on for the Internet Archive, if you find someone you like, here's a way to find out what they have at that site (which, admittedly, can be clumsy to navigate). Here's a French DJ I rather like, as an example
    DJ L'embrouille site:archive.org

    This is the same technique I use to scope bibliographic searches to education sites. The "site:archive.org" ensures the only thing you'll see is stuff at that site. Good hunting.

    PS, this is also a great way to do topic research for writing.

    I've got three sets on soundcloud (here), but as the free version is limited in how much you can upload I'm not using it much. If I were an actual musician and made my own music, I'd probably use it a lot more. :)

    This may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to...

    This is the song London Town, created by Miracle of Sound and inspired by Assassin's Creed Syndicate.



    Actual AC Syndicate gameplay is not like that, but the video captures the spirit and energy of the game very well!

    I just came across this and found it interesting. According to one of the comments it's sung in proto-germanic, which may be inspiring for some odf you - except some parts are in some kind of version of English.

    I've listened to this song for years, and it suddenly occurred to me that this is a pantser's theme song! :D

    This is the song Federkleid, by the fantastic band Faun!



    I have always thought that German is a beautiful language =)
