I'd recommend you to listen to 'Divenire' from front to back, when you just want to lay down and listen to music in silence. If you find it too classical, but still like it, then you might like 'In A Time Lapse'. It's a bit spooky though.
No it's never too early...I really like it.. it has that 80's syth groove set against an undercurrent of Power Out. I found that you can focus in on different aspects of the song which seem layer in an accessible way.
I do however feel that the video doesn't achieve as much as it could have..trying too hard maybe
A Caribbean women's literature course in my final degree year led to last summer's eight hour road-trip family holiday to the south west tip of my country being soundtracked by calypso. I can't go back to how things were before.
I'd like to, in a non-patronising and Civilization V research agreement between the Mayans and the Ottomans kind of a way, suggest that you listen to this (which tells the story of two starving men from Barbados and Trinidad; listen carefully): www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqWLwZIncec
Needless to say that course ran alongside the Heartland dissertation project and the two doubtlessly coloured each other. Weird dreams of Mighty Sparrow and No-face playing darts in island bars, etc..
Re: Reflektor, A month on and I'm digging it: The ones y'all (I see you Owen, lurking in all-whites and face tape) played on the Here Comes the Night Time SNL special thing (which was brilliant by the way: Owen, did you meet Bono?! Are his glasses real or just a hologram powered by humanitarian RRAAGGEE?) sounded great too so I can't wait to hear the finished article, in particular 'Normal Person'. I was driving over the Peak District, England (google it: JUST. SPLENDID.), today and listening to Funeral in full (I find that the car is one of few places where I listen to albums in full and in order now, thanks Steve Jobs) and it occurred to me that all three of their albums have taken some time with me - months, if not years, but are now three of my favourite albums, so although it might be foolhardy to be, like, 'I'll keep listening to it whatever!' just like that one bloc party did I still sort of have this faith that even if it doesn't all grab me straight away it'll all be alright.
