Picked up a copy of John Coltrane's Blue Train over the New Year. Perfect for working to - anything with guitars makes me go and grab mine and pretend I can play.

37-years deep, Brooklyn’s freewheeling local heroes They Might Be Giants remain rock's most original perpetual-motion machine, creating startling new music and performing shows packed with spontaneity and undeniable joy across the globe.

In 2018 alone, the band released their 20th full-length album I Like Fun to rave reviews, demolished stages in 80 cities worldwide, and was nominated for a Tony award for their song “I'm Not A Loser.” Today they are sharing Some Murdered Remains, a 6-song sampler of tracks featured on the recently released full-length album My Murdered Remains, available exclusively from TMBG's own Idlewild Recordings and not to be found on streaming services anywhere.
I particularly like "The Communists Have the Music"

Anything and everything by the incredible Sina Doering (Sina-Drums), the most talented young drummer on the planet. Don't just watch her drum covers; listen to her albums Chi Might and Chi Might II.

Brown Sabbath, Black Sabbath done Latin Funk style :D

Jolly. Disney like.
Well, the Disney part is down to the fan animator, who has so far done all of act 1.

The musical as a whole gets a bit grimmer (depending on your view on reanimation I guess) plot wise, but the music is still pretty upbeat. It's written as a 4-act tragic opera ("A Steampunk Opera"), so you can tell what you're in for.

Currently going through my YES collection, starting with The Yes Album and finishing with Magnification. Unfortunately, am stalled at Fragile atm; can't stop playing it!
Also, am going to see King Crimson in June at the Royal Albert Hall (50th Anniversary of 'In the Court of ...').
