Here are all of holderch5's jams.
by Carina Round
I've always tried hard to offer my own tastes on TIMJ rather than re-jamming, although I've got nothing against the practice. I post once a week at most, so I feel I must make it count. But now I give up. This is a find from a year ago, and I might well have heard it first right here. It fits, and anyway I'd like to celebrate the invigorating spirit of discovery that exists here. #finaljams

by The Last Poets
In light of the recent shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, as well as all the other violence against blackness in the States recently (and throughout our history), everyone needs to listen to more Last Poets.

by Chicago Symphony, Georg Solti
Reading Furlong's "Season with Solti" right now, and this piece plays a central role in the programming of the year in the early 70's. Whiplashistic!

I love all three of these guys' style of delivery, so it's fantastic to see them all on the same track.

by Subtle feat. Markus Acher
A jewel from Doseone with the outfit Subtle, which includes Jel (Jeffrey Logan), Dax Pierson, and a few other invaluable instrumentalists. Can't get enough of this group.

The third virtuosic instrument for this album is the space in (and with) which these woodwinds interact. For mercy's sake, I'll put just one song, but the entire album "Ascendant" is on bandcamp and it's niiiice.

by Chłopcy Kontra Basia
For how weird this song is, I probably found it on here. But I absolutely love the percussive nature of the words "Oj tak" (which apparently mean "Oh yes"). Just sing along when she starts repeating it -- I promise you'll have a good time.

by Gian Carlo Menotti
Heartbreaking scene, both singularly and contextually. Here's the synopsis: Monica is a young girl who is deeply fond and fiercely protective of Toby, a mute servant boy who lives in the household with Monica and her mother, the fake psychic Madame Flora. Monica and Toby have played together since they were children, but as they grow older, new and unsettling emotions emerge in both of them. In this scene, what begins as a puppet show evolves into a poignant moment as Monica speaks for Toby, allowing him to express how much he admires every part of her, and has loved her all his life "with all my breath, with all my blood." At the end, she affirms his love with the proclamation that he has "the most beautiful voice in the world." I recently heard an English version of this that would make your heart melt. You can see the translation on page 19 of this pdf: http://cedillerecords.org/music/images/pdf/cdNotes/034booklet.pdf

#powerhouse (adj): possessing a quality reminiscent of a 20-foot bellyflop or a guilty verdict after months of litigation; breath-taking. @occ, @cello_m, @natyblooming, @Axol, @shitsterbauer, @shme, @abigail.deeks, @Bukowski, what are some powerhouse tunes for yourselves?

New Avi Buffalo! Not much better in the world of bright, shiny indie today. Sort of grabbing the melody baton from Elliott Smith and wrapping it in Shins gossamer while sprinting toward the Next Big Thing finish line. What a time for living life lived liberally!

Not to detract from the sublime Ludwig van, but I just heard this guy's music, and I must share it with you all. He plays a famiola, which is a violin with six strings (and thus a 'fa' and a 'mi' string). His music is gorgeous!

by Ludwig van Beethoven
E.T.A. Hoffman: "Beethoven's instrumental music opens to us the realm of the monstrous and immeasurable. Glowing rays shoot through the deep night of this realm, and we sense giant shadows surging to and fro, closing in on us until they destroy /us/, but not the pain of unending longing in which every desire that has risen quickly in joyful tones sinks and expires. Only with this pain of love, hope, joy - which consumes but does not destroy, which would burst asunder our breasts with a mightily impassioned chord - we live on, enchanted seers of the ghostly world!"

by Joanna Newsom
SOFT BREAKING BAD SPOILERS AHEAD. Newsom examines the Bluebeard fable in this song, but all I hear is a reaction to the decisions and consequences of Walter White. 1. "But you don't even know/ your own violence./ Run away from home —/ your beard is still blue" 2. "Who made you this way?/ Who made you this way?/ Who is going to bear/ your beautiful children?/ Do you think you can just stop,/ when you're ready for a change?/ Who will take care of you/ when you're old and dying?" 3. "Will you tuck your shirt?/ Will you leave it loose?" 4. (From Skyler's perspective) "Wolf-spider, crouch in your funnel nest./ If I knew you, once,/ now I know you less./ In the sinking sand,/ where we've come to rest,/ have I had a hand in your loneliness?" Of course Badfinger's "Baby Blue" was a perfect song to end the series. But this song is a perfect runner-up. And what is Heisenberg but the 21st century reincarnation of the terrible, terrifying outlaw Bluebeard?
