I said this last year (and the year before… and the year before… and the year before), and didn’t get a chance to sail with this group, but I’m again going to do my best to meet up with them for some sailing races this year.


today’s tunes: the gloaming – the Booley House (live at the NCH)

this is a beautiful instrumental song by the group known as The Gloaming (I’ve posted previous songs from them here).

the video is a brilliant time-lapse of a pen and ink with watercolor sketch by Donegal-born Limerick-based illustrator Jacob Stack.

the Booley House will be on their upcoming album: Live at NCH (will be released on Real World Records on March 2nd 2018.)

today’s tunes: Spark – by Niklas Paschburg

I heard this song the other day on “All Songs Considered” on NPR with Bob Boilen, and just loved it.  I found the video later and love the nautical theme as well! the song is an instrumental, an ambient soothing blend of piano and synthesizer.  from the NPR site:

Niklas Paschburg is a German composer woven from a similar cloth as Nils Frahm, Daniel Wohl and other artists who stand at the intersection of classical and electronic music. The gorgeous, wayward “Spark,” from his debut album, Oceanic (out Feb. 9 on 7K!), captures the atmosphere of the Baltic Sea coast where he recorded it.

the wind blows

“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.”

John 3:8
