Lamb – Listen to New Things

February 20th, 2014

I listened to something today that I hadn’t heard before: Lamb. It is a little strange at times, but I liked it. It’s strangeness is part of why it is good.

Stretch yourself with your listening. Too often I hear people say silly things such as, “I don’t like rap,” or “I don’t like electronic music.” That’s as broad as saying that you don’t like the climate in Africa. If you had any idea how diverse and huge that continent is you would not make such a sweeping claim.

Africa clearly has some complex weather!

Lamb (upon my first listen) seems to be a blend of electronica, jazz, and some blues. If you don’t like those genres, give this a try anyway. Something might click and give way to your future appreciation of something you previously thought unpalatable. If you don’t like it, you’ll still know something you didn’t know before.

In any case, don’t forget to listen to some great music today (that you haven’t heard before). There’s a ton of it out there.
