Twilight Music: The Orb, “Battersea Bunches” (2011)

November 23, 2015

This soundtrack to privately recorded vacation footage from 1956 proves to be one of ambient duo The Orb’s best modern compositions.

Twilight Music: Andre Previn, “I’m A Dreamer, Aren’t We All?” (1963)

A masterful jazz pianist offers up a lush take of a song from a 1920s-era musical. Just don’t call it ‘easy listening’ unless you mean it nicely….

Twilight Music: Bob Brookmeyer & Bill Evans, “As Time Goes By” (1959)

This one-off collaboration was an experiment in sound. Don’t let the oddly phallic album cover scare you; this is a beautiful, unique take on a pop standard

Twilight Music: Sterling Void & Paris Brightledge, “It’s All Right” (1987)

A house classic that was made into a hit two years after its release thanks to Pet Shop Boys, but the original is all groove and melody–and a message that, sadly, is still relevant.

Twilight Music: William Basinski, “The Disintegration Loops”

Today has been a day of unspeakable tragedy and heartbreak for both France and Japan. There’s nothing you can do about it; please turn off your TV’s, and immerse yourself in the works borne from another day of great tragedy and pain.

Twilight Music: The Album Leaf, “For Jonathan” (2003)

Just a lovely, unhurried walk through the woods on a cool autumn afternoon, nothing more, nothing less…

Twilight Music: The Album Leaf, “Micro Melodies” (2005)

In tonight’s installment in this week’s ongoing appreciation of The Album Leaf, we present a song found on a hard-to-find tour-only EP.

Twilight Music: The Album Leaf, “Malmo” (2003)

We continue our listening journey into the darker corners of The Album Leaf’s back catalogue, this time with one of the band’s most endearing numbers, taken from a 2003 Spanish-only EP.

Twilight Music: The Album Leaf, “Lamplight” (2003)

A reader’s request to hear some Album Leaf is generously filled; this week, we’ll highlight some more obscure numbers, starting with this track off of a split record from 2003.

Twilight Music: Füxa, Venoy (Bliss Out V.5)  (1997)

We go three-for-three in the Darla Bliss-Out series; aren’t you getting the hint yet about how wonderfully necessary it is to your record collection?
