this is basically an exercise in scrolling through my music library by time.
How about a cheery 22 minute song about stars, court jesters, and flagpole sitting?
A great multi-part one from Trail of the Dead.
And its lesser known follow-up.
Tool doesn’t get nearly enough appreciation here.
Could just be a joanna Newsom thread but 2 of her best are a couple of seconds too short
Get them out of the thread then
Just mumble about some elves in a high voice and play a harp for a couple of seconds at the end of each video to extend the experience
I’m not epimer
Obvious one, but probably the best one.
Also Drumming, which absolutely blew my mind when I first heard and makes quite the live spectacle (there seems to be at least one performance a year at the Royal Festival Hall).
Have you heard the early Steve Reich stuff? The looping on It’s Gonna Rain is a Pentecostal preacher named Brother Walter and it’s hypnotic. (NPR has a short but interesting article about it: https://www.npr.org/sections/deceptivecadence/2015/01/27/381575433/fifty-years-of-steve-reichs-its-gonna-rain?t=1589905194195).
10:59 of perfection with a 5 minute solo that deserves to be played as loudly as possible.
