Today's hip tunes. New music that isn't Classic Rock or Jazz!

Actually, I was mostly interested in talking about "Lucky Leif and the Longships."

Which is seldom mentioned anywhere, far less than ambient anyway, and I
think it's one of Eno's most stellar efforts, strikingly different from
the standard rock album. I'm always taking people to task for dismissing
genres (you know, like, "rap is not music" or "all reggae sounds the
same"), but I'm not even sure ambient is really a genre: seems more a
technique, but a technique that really tests my attention span and I'm
normally an exciteable boy. And, yes, I'm an opinionated boy; I have an
opinion on everything, but at least I change my opinions quite often,
especially when I am wrong or foolish. Well, as my favorite poet says,
"If the fool would persist in his folly, he would become wise." Perhaps
I'll be penetrated someday by ambient, but right now I'm listening to
a lot of Hungarian gypsy folk music like Parno Grasz and Kalyi Jag with
nary a trace of ambient in sight. Regards,

J.R., listening to Khamoro.
