TUESDAY BLUES!! Beck - Looking for a sign

Do you like Singer/Songwriters, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!

Beck - Looking for a Sign (2012)


I've had a difficult few weeks. Driving, long days, exhaustion are all taking there toll.  I've also found myself in a Zombie like state and have, for the first time in ages, have not been enjoying music.  I cannot listen to music without thinking about work.  The long drive home, which used to be filled with listening to the latest Spotify playlist, now is filled with Radio 4 - and not the Brooklyn Dance-Rock type.

However, is this the light at the end of the tunnel? It popped up on a playlist and has put the twinkle in my xmas lights.

It was released in March and features on the Jeff, Who Lives at Home soundtrack and bears similarity to his 2002 melancholia album Sea Change.  Neil Young-esq, banjo, strings & big acoustic guitar - what's not to like?

He has recently released a sheet-music album (is there such a thing?) called Song Reader.  You can download some of the sheet music through SongReader.net, but you need to be handy with a musical instrument.  I might try to play some on my Jazz Flute!  




Like Singer Songwriters? Like a bit of Misery? Like Men with Beards?

Beck can do no wrong! Sorry to hear that sfw, I have days like that, mostly work related of late so I feel your pain. Music can help you suffer or it can sooth the aches of life!

Sorry to hear you've a stressful few weeks sfw. I too have the occasional Radio 4 period in order to cleanse the palette, after which I return to my usual non-stop tuneage refreshed and reinvigorated.

Here's hoping your musical juices are flowing again and that you'll soon be treating us all to some of that jazz flute!
