Great list! Love that you included Empire of the Sun, I've seen them a couple times live. Try out their song "Wandering Star" they never promoted it but it's some of their best work musically and sonically, let me know what you think. Also I saw you included Joe Goddard, check out his song "Home," it's a great listen. I'll be writing another music article soon, would love to get your thoughts on that as well when I post it.Hey, I am a bit new to HiFi, and this is my first post on the MajorHiFi forum. I want to link my running list from Tidal of my favorite songs I love on my relatively new LCD-X's: https://tidal.com/browse/playlist/fc5d6837-a63c-4907-adc7-b49155dcd494
So glad you made the connection between James Blake and Sevdaliza!! I've always felt a lot of similarities in their sounds, and Retrograde may be one of my favorite songs of all time. Also can't believe you mentioned Concerning the UFO sighting near Highland, Illinois! I feel like that's a buried gem in Sufjan's discography. I will check out the rest of the tracks soonThanks for the suggestions Luke! I like both tracks a lot. Wandering star is on a couple playlists of mine.
I wanted to give some highlights of your playlist actually. I threw it on a few times and like it all pretty much, but here are some highlights I noted and other recommendations:
I am slowly compiling a new HiFi mix that I'll post here as soon as I fill it up.
- Sevdaliza - Darkest Hour: Very cool song, intricate and I love at the half way mark the spaciousness and bass used. Another song I like similar is James Blake - Retrograde
- Amon Tobin - Journeyman: Bonkers! It's a sonic roller-coaster in the best possible way! Another track I like similar to this is Mount Kimbie - Serged
- Mree - In the kitchen: A wonderful female vocal track. Beautiful melodies and atmospheric underbelly that is just perfect. Reminds me of Saint Sister - Twin Peaks
- Thom Yorke - Suspirium: Great song I have known for a while but "lost" it. I would recommend daily mail by him, but the stereo imaging isn't the best, but its still a lovely song. Another great track that is similar is Sufjan Stevens - Concerning the UFO sighting near Highland, Illinois
Anyways, I would love to keep diving more tracks and discussing them. Can't wait to see the upcoming article
Am checking this out now, love Mree so much, definetly listen to her other stuff if you haven't. Also, I finally had time to do a follow up to my first article, here's the next one, let me know what you think!I've started a new Audiophile playlist on Tidal. I'm always adding my latest finds here for the time being
So glad you're enjoying the music! I just posted a follow up article with some more albums you might be into, Eartheater and Lafawndah are likely right up your alley if you liked Sevdaliza. I also wrote about the album Murmurations by Simian Mobile disco, which I used to test the PI7 when I reviewed them, and I haven't found an earbud that made that album sound as amazing as those did, so definitely recommend giving it a spin on the PI7.Hey guys, thank you for the playlists....I cant believe I never heard of Sevdaliza before and I am huge trip hop fan...I also forgot how good Phantogram is. I just ordered the B&W PI7 earbuds and I was looking for reviews and I came across this forum. Now I have tons of new music to demo the headphones with. My primary headphones is the B&W P9 signature so I am excited how B&W can make earbuds sound.
I'll have to make a audiophile play list to share with y'all, stay tuned.
