music for a blaylockian evening

What do you listen to when reading mr locks... I really like some six organs of admittance or some Coil. The first is a band that plays a type of folk music that has a mystical droning quality to it.  It is really evocative of the forests of the northwest, all fern landen and misty. THe latter is a band that really is in a catagory of its own.  Alchemical musical permutations both floral and decadent.  Both are good background music for cold rainy evening spent curled up with a Smithers, a cup of hot punch and a snoring, cheese loving dog...
add on..

Yay! I'm on the message board!!!

Ahem.

I checked out the Six Organs of Admittance...nice stuff so far. I'll have to listen a bit more. Coil seems a bit too dark though...much like Dead Can Dance.

I always thought that Van Morrison had the feel of Blaylock's later, more modern stuff. Mystic, jolly and  thoughtful.

Filmmaker Wes Anderson, is going totally Blaylock. The Royal Tenenbaum's were slightly so, but The Life Acquatic was fest of wackiness. This include's the music sensibility as well, done by former Devo fronk-man, Mark Mothersbaugh.

For JPB's older, fantasy stuff, some classical selecitons come to mind. Sibelius', namely his 5th symphony, etc.  

More later when I'm not at "work"!

Terrible-twos- Are you familiar with In Gowan Ring or Stone Breath? They're similar in mood to Six Organs of Admittance. As to music to read Blaylock by, I think Isan (especially "Meet Next Life"), Deadbeat, and Pole fit in nicely. They all do a strange,relaxing, sometimes quirky electronic glitch music. And it helps that there are no vocals: I can't concentrate on a book if someone is singing/talking.
