Chopin, Piazzolla, The Temper Trap / The most beautiful music in my life right now

First of all, our new studio album is scheduled to be released at our Café Du Nord show on October 17. Get more details here and find out how you can get a free copy.

Secondly, I just returned from Cincinnati for our drummer’s wedding. I had a blast and ate plenty of Skyline. You can view my full collection of photos here.

For me, music has always been a form of expression. Like a language, it articulates the feelings I’d like to express. It’s always been, above all, a supplement to the experience of everyday life. Music as entertainment is fine enough, but I’m realizing it exists more in my life as a soundtrack than as the feature.

Sometimes I just need a reminder of why I love it so much.

Chopin‘s Nocturne Op. 72 No. 1 – I’m currently learning this on the piano

“Oblivion” by Ástor Piazzolla, the Argentinean composer and bandoneón player

And for all you new-music kids out there, a great song by The Temper Trap from Melbourne
