Ever since being introduced to Brian Eno, I’ve been obsessed. I look for him everywhere & find his influence to be far reaching. However, there are times when I actively seek him out, like when I get the Talking Heads albums More Songs About Buildings and Food that he produced. I got this album after learning that he did not, sadly, produced my favorite Bowie album, Low. Tony Visconti, you did a fine job sir.
The soundtrack for Fantastic Planet or La Planete Sauvage is weird & unexpected. It’s been wonderful for writing & studying, which seems to be my life lately.
