Jacaszek + Swod + Fennesz + Vince Guaraldi

Posted by Jakub

Its a difficult task to keep up with any genre especially if you’re always in need of something fresh, the post classical realm is by far one of my favorites that I don’t dig deep enough in and sit with an album. I usually have a stash of artists that I rely on to get me what I want, Jacaszek is one of them, if you can’t tell by his name he’s Polish which makes me favor him since i’m from there. Always on the darker side yet doesn’t sit in one place, his new LP Glimmer is out now.

Swod goes the Philip Glass route full on with this refreshing piano piece, fits right in with these winter nights but adds a hint of excitement so you don’t comfortably doze off.

THere probably isn’t much to add when you write about Fennesz & Sakamoto, i’d rather you go and read what the Wire has to say because they’ll probably have the inside scoop, very inviting static texture and resonance.

Probably one of my favorite songs of all time, enjoy this one from Vince Guaraldi Trio, you know what it is.

I was just listening to Vince Guaraldi earlier today and concur, “Skating” is gorgeous track any time of year.

Really liking this Jacaszek! Zorya by Czech artist Floex is worth checking out if you’re into this kind of sound.

SWOD makes me want to rob paintings for fun and then jet set off to some far away private island on my $35 million dollar jet. Pretty much The Thomas Crown Affair style.

Great post! After reading this post we played all of these in the ChilloutTent on and LOVE them, such a great set of fun piano stuff.

Nice pairing of Jacaszek and the Josef Shulz photograph, but what ever happened to image credits? Not only is it fair to the artist, more importantly it informs the viewer. Great choice, nonetheless.

That Fennesz and Sakamoto song is wonderful. Nils Frahm recently came out with an album called “Felt” that is pretty fantastic. Recorded it by putting the microphones deep inside his piano and using felt to make the sound softer.
