Ah, the simple pleasures of 70’s synth music. I found this via Anthology Recordings, which I found via a short article in Wired magazine. After a full day of studying Beethoven symphonies to help my wife prepare for her symphonic literature class, it’s nice to put on some music I don’t have to think so critically about. Actually, I don’t know if you would want to think critically about this music anyways. I don’t think this music “finds a temporary resting place in a glowing Arcadian movement within which may be glimpsed the sublimated kernel of the Joy theme”, as Solomon would say of Beethoven’s 9th. Anyways, enjoy:
