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.


today’s tunes: undertow [Lisa Hannigan]

another great tune and incredibly cool video from Lisa Hannigan – this song is called “Undertow”:

in a strange twist of fate, it seems that my favorite band, The National, has some influence on Lisa, as Aaron Dessner of The National helped Lisa on this latest album.

I found the video via NPR – they have a neat article about the video, you can read it here.

There’s a bit of magic in this video. It feels as if time is moving backward — in part because of the slow motion, but something else felt reversed, too.

read the NPR interview for more details and a spoiler.
