Artist of the month : Mars Lasar

Today onwards, I’m starting of with a new category in my blog, “artist of the month”.

What is it?

As I live each day of my life, I feel some moments tend to become more joyous than others, and the impact sticks around for some time, before I get awestruck by something else which catches my fancy. Usually, they are creative people, who envision something beautiful, and then they go a step further and manage to share it with the rest of the world.

To imagine something beautiful, and then managing to share it with the rest of the world is what leaves me dumbfounded.

Without further distractions, and digressions, let me point out the artist that makes me go “weak in my knees” :). I got to hear the music from last.fm. The, composer : Mark Lasar. Although I had not heard of the composer earlier, The album in particular struck a really powerful chord with me.

The music was thoroughly “relaxed” feel to it. Like someone, who’s not going anywhere, but is happy being where he/she is. Just let it play in as ambient sounds in my room. It really eases me out. Although labeled as Techno / New Age, the music has a lot of instruments, like a tasteful jazz piece.

I have only heard one of the albums here … “Karma”. Do give it a try. Let me know if anyone finds it interesting.

A great artist .

Sometimes I surprise myself with my varying tastes in music. But this time, I guess it’s really over the top. 🙂 pun intended. There’s a new artist I absolutely adore. Her name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.

Behold, I have a new favorite.  I certainly agree that she has those on stage antics, and a style that screams out loud, but the music is very fresh. I enjoy her music more when there is a Visual disconnect, i.e, on a radio, mp3 player.

Maybe it’s a persona she has created, but now got to live up to. Even legendary musicians (Freddy Mercury, Prince) had a style that left (and probably still does) much to be desired. But they were great people. Anyways, as they say beauty lies in the eye of beholder, maybe there is someone out there who likes it.

I sure hope the Fame ball keeps keep rolling for her.

For those who still haven’t figured it out, I’ve been talking and praising Lady Gaga.
