Ear-Openings

"It's a mind and ear-opening exercise to think cross-musically like this, and besides, it's what we're all doing consciously and subconsciously every day." Tom Service, Guardian, 3/19/10.

A great article on the links between indie rock and 20th-century classical with a link to another great article by Max Willens.

Willens article has some Lala-driven comparisons in the SFTD style, which I will leave there for sampling... recommending particularly the Monteverdi influence in Sunday Day in Glasgow and Dirty Projectors.

Our common friend Mark V turned me on to your blog a few months back - our theme paths crossed this week in my 'song of the week' program (http://www.facebook.com/cutandcover?v=app_2347471856#!/note.php?note_id=380647774215) - hopefully you can follow that link...
