Those Who Ride With Giants - The Mountain Seed

Those Who Ride With Giants – The Mountain Seed

This song falls firmly into the “musical journey” category. It builds up rather quickly and then takes the listener on a calm and dreamy ride. An echoed guitar rows us along towards another guitar that plays the role of the charming siren. Close your eyes and get lost at sea.

I would have thought this to be a journey song even if it wasn’t for the official video, which I must highly recommend. It’s a simple, touching and sincere story if I ever saw one.

Red Snapper – Keeping Pigs Together

Experimentation is the key to progress. Music is also a subject of this simple property of intelligence. Like all forms of intelligent expression, music evolves through time, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. I like to think that this melody belongs to the first category.

It seriously caught my attention when, at around the 2 minutes mark, the song reaches its full speed in what is a panoramic show of force. Indeed, when listening to it, one may feel like being taken on a fast, dizzying flight across a landscape of wild sounds. My only complaint is that I felt like the ending is a bit over-done and might interfere a bit with the atmosphere that the artists have worked hard to create during the song.
