Music In Motion

Monday, March 15, 2010

I don’t always have my iPod on when I’m on the subways, but I do find it difficult to be in the car for any length of time without it. The radio will suffice for a short ride, but for anything over 20 or 30 minutes, I really want to have that control over what I’m listening to.

The Covers Album

Monday, March 08, 2010

When word came that the new Peter Gabriel album would be a collection of covers, that made news throughout the music world.  From Bowie to Arcade Fire, the set list is full of surprises.  The fact that there would be no rock band in the usual sense, but rather an orchestra backing up his vocals, almost became an afterthought.
