Oh yeah. I'm married with 3 teenagers. There's always time for satisfying music especially on nice gear. :)

Married 5 Kids listen to music while I program. One of two things happen while I write code I am mellow, then music or pisse~ off then its a series of dead flicks. But always find some time to listen to something helps me focus.

PS This weekend alone we are at 2 plays - and 5 playoff ball hockey games. I have my useal repair chores and house what ever. But still find time to play with my hobby.

Ian Siegal---Meat and Potatoes
Siegal-Schwall Blues Band--Anthology (early recordings)
The Flying Burrito Bros.----Gilded Palace of Sin/Burrito Deluxe (the vinyl version is much better but I got this for $9.00--good for the car)
The Kinks---Something Else by the Kinks (love Waterloo Sunset-very underrated Kinks album)
Corb Lund----Horse Soldier, Horse Soldier.

No kids, a few days off,too hot for yard work..nothing to do but sit in the AC and listen to some music.

Hey Flash, I'd never before seen the name Elsiane , but after a bit of googling it looks as though they might be right up my alley. Thanks for giving me something else new to look out for!

Would you care to offer your own mini review???

(I'm already a Zero 7 fan)



Cheers

Got a late start tonight, so not much...

Madonna's latest, Candy Shop - can we say "contractual obligation"? Sound is horribly compressed, too. Ouch!

Jacqui Naylor - The Color Five. Much better album, both musically and sonically.

Ending this late session with DJ Shah - Songbook. Nothing like a little down-tempo/chill-out vocal trance for the wee hours. 8)

Divorced with a great 12 year old boy who I will pick up at the end of June for 7weeks this summer.
That is why I have been busy with yard work, paving driveway and rolling dubes...er...tubes when I get the chance.... :lol:

Will be getting much busier when he's here.
I'm doing well as he now listens to the Beatles, Led Zepellin and some of Elton Johns stuff from the seventies!!!! :D :o

I just received my Genesis Box Set "1976-1982". I picked it up because the five albums they put out in that period were remixed in Hybrid SACD and DVD-A formats. So I listened to A trick Of The Tail tonight. I must say that the sound is pretty amazing. :D

...I like listening to The Lamb and then Trick back to back...what a seamless transition between Peter and Phil 8)

CBC Radio 2 - The Signal 10pm-1am 7 days a week.
Eclectic mix of new music styles, including classical, jazz, freak folk, electronic, electro acoustic, chamber pop, alternative, rock fusion...
Most of the music played seems to have an ambient flow/vibe, with a little bit of avant experimentation, usually somewhat unique sounding artists who have new, innovative and original ways of presenting their music.
I record it from FM to DVD on my little stand alone sony burner, can get 1-6hrs on one disk, just like hi-fi vhs. The video is just left blank, audio only.
I can fall asleep and then listen to what i missed at work the next day. I go to cbc.ca and get the track/artist/label listings. then buy cd's of the one's i really like. I discover so many new artists that i like, that sometimes i end up buying more cd's than i have time to listen to.
They also play live concert excerpts from across the nation. The complete concerts can be downloaded from cbc.ca concerts on demand. Last time i looked they had over 800 shows from this year.
A few of my latest cd listens would be
Effterclang (from Copenhagen, chamber pop, rock/classical/jazz/electronic fusion)
Glen Velez (frame drumming master)
Tambuco (mexican percussion ensemble)
Lori Freedman (avant jazz, bass clarinet)
