The Listening Project- week ending March 13

(NZ) Six 60 Six 60 2015 Massive Entertainment

The current hot band in NZ. I figured it was time that I listening to more than what’s been used on repeat in adverts, TV and on the radio. Their music is fun, happy and bouncy, and I can see why they appeal to a wide variety of people.

The Beatles Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band 1967 Remastered 2009 Apple Corps

 

For the ‘5th Beatle’ George Martin. RIP. Apparently Sergeant Pepper was one of his favourite Beatles albums. Of course he worked on a ton of non-Beatles music, crossing the spectrum of genres so here’s Marc Myers’s post from Jazz Wax on some of the other music that Martin worked on:

Emerson Lake and Palmer The Best of ELP 2011 Leadclass Ltd

RIP Keith Emerson and the ever groovy synth…

Of course ELP is more than just the (very groovy) synths. Just as much as I love Jethro Tull, I love ELP for the folk/jazz-rock with classical touches and how they could say so much in just 2 or 3 minutes.

Finally this week I’ve also got to include this amazing musical mash-up video on the history of rock ‘n’ roll. It’s been doing the rounds of social media, but it’s really fascinating how the creators have edited these excerpts together in a Facebook timeline because it really gives you and idea of who influenced who, how, and when:
