I plan to spend Mondays on this blog recommending music that appears on the Internet under a Creative Commons Attribution or Attribution-ShareAlike license. There will be tags for Music Monday, Writing Wednesday on which I talk about writing, Friday Five in which I talk about random things in categories of five, and Wacky Weekends in which I discuss anything that comes to mind.
For your first recommendation: Hungry Lucy's Pulse of the Earth
. Free to listen, $5 to download. I'm particularly fond of "Hill", which seems to me to describe a trip into faerieland ("underneath the hill"), and "The Standing Ones", which talks about life and death from the perspective of the dead person. Hungry Lucy describe themselves as "electronica" with an adjective that I won't repeat because it's an ethnic slur. I can't tell you they're unproblematic; I can't tell you anything's unproblematic. I can tell you I like their music in spite of that problem.
I'm also fairly certain that songs from Pulse of the Earth
will be appearing in Blow That Trumpet Gabriel
. I'm not sure where or why yet, I just know that this is music Leah Driscoll listens to...crossposted from conallpublications.com
