Music Monday: September roundup

Oh boy, it sure feels good to have one of these again. Not being able to listen to my music (because there’s no quiet or privacy to be found anywhere) is one of the heaviest burdens of the summer holidays. As soon as the school people were out the door, it was party time!

Well, not exactly party material, as you can see. Just incredibly enjoyable. Ramin Djawadi’s work on Game of Thrones has earned him a permanent place among my favourite soundtrack composers. (The show’s main title sequence, as you can see from the video – which, by the way, is the Season 1 version, if you couldn’t tell by the cast list – is a work of art in itself, but that’s a subject for another day.) Faun have a brand new album out (Luna), so digging out the past catalogue was expected as well. And Pretty Maids… well, Danish madness works well anytime, but especially when I’m feeling three-quarters mad myself. I found out through a (gloriously fortuitous) browsing coincidence that they had new albums out in both 2013 and 2014, quite unlike their established once-in-three-years habit. Motherland could easily become my favourite work of theirs, displacing Future World, that has held the place since its 1987 release.
