Oh noes! secondalto tagged me!

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your livejournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

Dunno if I know seven people here, but I definitely have seven hot songs at the moment...



Ah, my last.fm charts tell an embarrassing tale for me this week. I've had a few things on heavy repeat. The adjective they have in common is "floating".

Mike Foyle / "Shipwrecked"
Sunlounger / "White sand"
These two tracks open Armin van Buuren's A state of trance 2006, which is my current writing music. Melodic. "Shipwrecked" is more compositionally complex than "White sand", which is a standard repeat-and-build guitar thing. Have sought out more Mike Foyle.

Pole Folder / "Apollo Vibes"
Progressive kinda downtempo trance. Vibey rhythm with Apollo mission samples over the top. Mellow.

Alex Gold / "String Theory"
Floating endlessly unresolved, beat never quite kicking in. Complex, layered. Nice track to use as an opener for a playlist that builds and moves.

Chicane / "Halcyon"
Repeat and build, breakdown, introduce melodic element, repeat and build. Enjoy the perfect production.

Robyn Hitchcock / "She doesn't exist"
The only vocal track in the list. Heartbreaking. Stripped arrangement, heavy on that arpeggiated chiming Rickie.

Orbital / "One perfect sunrise"
The last track on Orbital's last record. My current playlist-of-obsession opens with "Belfast", first track on the Hartnoll brothers' first record, and ends with this. More with the floaty stuff! I hate the Blue Album otherwise. (video of a live performance)

Not tagging anybody, but tell me what you're listening to and why. I love listening to new music.
