Piano Music

What’s your favourite song involving a piano? Or piano album. Or both.

Song: ‘La Mer’ by Nine Inch Nails (says the guy with the NIN tee in his avatar!)
Album: Back Into the Woods by Ed Harcourt or Knives Don’t Have Your Back by Emily Haines (yeah, I know, I released them both. That’s how much I like them!)

Generally into the minimal stuff, in the vein of Eric Satie. Absolutely love Goldmund (Helios, Keith Kenniff etc) and his album the Malady of Elegance. Just beautiful, and a great lp to relax to:

I pretty much love everything he comes up with.

Otherwise, enjoy the Sakamoto stuff he did with Fennesz, both of those albums are nice. Also enjoy the ambient eno stuff (Music for airports in particular is amazing.

Love the more chilled stuff Nils Frahm does also, solo is a lovely lp.

Can’t believe he had the audacity to rip off Kanye (:wink:) but it’s still a nice tune.
