rezzeJ, I dig the music you share. I really like "Oak -Firebird." You seem to have a preference for instrumentals. Do you ever listen to songs with lyrics/vocals?

I'm glad you enjoy the selections! I do have a penchant for instrumental music. It's so easy to write cheesy lyrics and they always ruin an otherwise a good track for me. Math rock and prog are big offenders.

Having said that, some of my favourite music has vocals. Here's some off of the top of my head.

Moses Sumney - Doomed

R.A.P. Ferreira - Leaving Hell

Ichiko Aoba - bouquet

Steven Wilson - Drive Home

Dominique Fils-Aimé - Birds

Alice in Chains - Brother

Oh snap! I’m excited to listen. I have some manual labor in my yard this coming weekend and I’ll dig in. Regarding lyrics, I’ve definitely been guilty of ruining a good piece of music with vocals. But I’ve also taken meh music and made it better. I love lyrics. I have a hard time with just instrumentals.
