Painting Music – Top 10 Albums

Posted by: admin In: Art News Blog

Since discovering the iPod I now rarely listen to whole albums while I paint as I just create play lists to suit my mood. But some albums just play well all the way through so I still use them in the studio.

Here’s Ten albums that have kept me company during the completion of a painting or two..

  1. Leonard Cohen – Songs of Love and Hate
    Anything by Leonard is good to paint to though.
  2. Antony and the Johnsons – Antony and the Johnsons
    This self titled album is a beauty. Antony Hegarty sings like an angel. All his stuff is good.
  3. The Cinematic Orchestra – Ma Fleur
    Lovely album.. how could you not love this?
  4. Angus and Julia Stone – A Book Like This
    Australian brother and sister duo.
  5. Eddie Vedder – Music for the Motion Picture Into the Wild
    For some reason, this album always makes me want to give away all my possessions and travel. Perhaps it’s because I saw the movie.
  6. Joan Valent – Insula Poetica
    Beautifully haunting music.. yum.
  7. Moby – Go: The Very Best of Moby
    I sometimes need a lift in the studio.
  8. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – The Boatman’s Call
    This album has a habit of taking me back to darker times, so I’m careful how I use it.
  9. Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions – Bavarian Fruit Bread
    Her Mazzy Star albums are nice too.
  10. PJ Harvey – To Bring You My Love
    I no longer have a working version of this CD but that’s because it used to live in my studio.

I really do like a lot of different types of music though. What are your TOP albums that you couldn’t live without in the studio? I need some new tunes on my itunes.
