I have uploaded a whole bunch of never-before-seen photos to the photography section of this website.
Have a look if you're reading this.

It is so nice to stumble upon music which genuinely excites and stimulates you. These two albums which I found on the Home Normal bandcamp page do just that.
Procrastination by Fabio Orsi and Pimmon is a true gem. An interesting collaboration in which (according to the liner notes) Orsi created a handful of pieces then handed them over to Pimmon who was to rearrange and transform them. Apparently this was a challenging request for Pim-dawg as he believed the pieces were already fully realized, so he procrastinated on the project for an extended period of time before returning to it with a clear direction. The result is 4 beautiful tracks which glitter with imagination and clarity. I thoroughly enjoyed this release for its humanity, simplicity and emotional intensity. A breath of fresh air in a saturated internet.
And this one! Music for Guitar and Patience by Le Berger which I found clicking through the Home Normal catalogue after Procrastination. I don't have much to say about this album other than it felt like a warm hug to the brain. After listening to the first half-hour track I felt calm and centered like I haven't in a long time. Progressing though the album, I felt as though my mind was being cleared out and refreshed; anxiety levels dropped and a gentle breeze flowed through me. It is such a beautiful feeling to have a truly positive emotional response to an album and be able to see the effect music has on the human mind so visibly. I loved this album for its lack of pretense - it just is what it is. Also, it may have the best album cover of all time as far as I'm concerned.
