Above & Beyond* – Walter White | (Dom Ayliffe guest post)

Above and Beyond of Anjunabeats have created a delightful anthem in homage to their favourite Breaking Bad character, Walter White.
As you listen, the progressive build up explains how the character undergoes metamorphosis as he becomes overwhelmed by forces beyond his control.
The masterfully placed minor chords mirror the turmoil and anguish he faces.
But undercutting the closing melody is that punishing bass-line pounding to remind you that the dark side of Walter will crush you if you get in his way.
Love it!

The Band – Rockin’ Chair

I love this timeless, wistful number from The Band’s 1969 eponymous second studio album. I was reminded of it this week while listening to a Spotify playlist based on Neil Young.

Recently it seems my musical focus has been toward classics from the 60’s and 70’s. Feel free to suggest any that I might have missed.
