Since Mondays mark the beginning of a new work-week, and since we’ll always need a little bit of a kick-start for the next 40+ hours, I’m going to begin using this space for some groovy/funky/rocking tune-sharing. Pretty much in the same line of thinking as last week’s ‘Kinder-Psyche’ post, the following tunes are meant to help trigger a little bit of your own imagery and insight, as well help you step outside of yourself to just enjoy the moment…which has, ultimately, given me a breather from life and some quality time with my own creativity.
So, without further ado, following is this week’s installment (starting with one cool video that I’m particularly fond of from Jane’s Addiction – both for the sonic sound of the tune as well as the straightforward PUNCH in the performance aspect of the vid):
- Kid Koala – Stompin at Le Savoi
(ingenious n’ greasy)
- Nick Drake – Black-Eyed Dog
(somber and contemplative)
- Los Amigos Invisibles – Pipi
(playful and nomadic)
- Marvin Gaye – Got to Give it Up
(soulful and funky)
- Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Down Boy
(tranquil and sonic)
What ‘wells’ do you tap into for outside influence and/or inspiration? What gets you going when you feel as if you’ve hit a creative wall?
