Lori, you did good with the Thievery Corporation invite. I would classify them as more chill artists than electronica, but you did good.

Similar sounds:

Listening to Move Like This again, after about a week's hiatus from this library cd of last year's cars. Try it, if you want to feel like opening old wounds on novacaine, or something like that. It has its merits, even if your memories of the Seventies may be from dredging up a previous incarnation.

Ligeti's wordless choirs -

They call this sort of thing "post-rock" whatever that's supposed to mean, but it reminds me of YES without the vocals and the long solos. I like it because it's not so dark and doom-laden which seems to be the style de jour.

Riccardo Muti performing Tchaikovsky's "Final Agagio Lamentoso". That's what it says on the track list anyway.

Zappa is summer music for me. Call back when the sun shines and my home shores beckon. . .

The Barber of Seville was just playing on BBC 3. And not a rabbit in sight. . .
