This week I find that I have been avoiding too much music with a lyrical base. I have been able to focus much better with instrumental tracks playing. I am working on some projects that require a deft and subtle hand in post production, and I find the more subdued tracks keeps my hand a little calmer. There are definitely some great treasures on this list, most notably Red Sparowes, a band that has long been in my constant play rotation. Its both driving and relaxing, works fantastic for both computer work and in studio when shooting. Bohren and Der Club of Gore is another group worth checking out for those who find themselves doing a ton of work on the road on their laptop. Cool, dark, and moody jazz inspired tracks that can be pretty much adapted and listened to in any situation. They are very theatrical as well, fantastic personal soundtrack music.
