Isn’t the range of music around incredible—how many different varieties and genres exist? How do humans keep composing new, authentic music?
If a scientist told me that music is a finite natural resource like coal, or crude oil—that we only have 5 years of original music compilations left before notes are repeated and originality dries up, I wouldn’t be surprised.
How do artists come up with new songs? Do you like a wide variety of music, or just one or two types? I gave my youngest, The Devil’s Advocate, a lift recently. She plugged her iPhone into the car stereo.
“You might like this song,” she said.
WOW, do yourself a favour and listen. These guys, Alt-J, are unique!
This song gave me an earworm, ie. a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person’s mind after it is no longer playing.
The Devil’s Advocate was impressed with the line in the song, ‘Please break my heart’.
There is something about the strong but vulnerable male …
If you enjoyed Breezeblocks, you might also like Alt-J’s other songs, Matilda and Something Good.
Everyone goes on about how cute babies are, but so are teenagers—I don’t care what people say.
What are your favourite songs? (So we can share, and I can put them on my iPhone songlist) 🙂
Alt-J is an English indie rock band, formed in 2007 (obviously I’ve been living under a rock).
