Vienna Concert, Part I

Vienna Concert, Part I

by Keith Jarrett

TIMJ is ending, so I’ve reached for the formative jams of my childhood. Which brings me to Keith Jarrett’s Vienna Concert. It’s a beautiful, moving, inspired, intimate journey, simultaneously tied to the time and place of its creation while feeling timeless and universal.

Closer

Closer

by FKA twigs

Closer by @FKAtwigs uses the power of liturgical music to beautifully evoke an unfulfilled desire for intimacy. The verse conjures the feeling of the wide open emptiness of a cathedral space and the sound of a solemn anglican hymn, while the chorus invokes intimacy in the appeal “I want to be closer”. But the wish is not granted, as the song ends with the word “Isolation” decaying in space.
