Here are five things I enjoyed or found interesting this week:
1. USGS Bee Inventory – https://www.flickr.com/photos/usgsbiml/albums
Beautiful macro photos of polinators.
2. USGS Landsat – https://unsplash.com/@usgs
Beautiful photos from the eyes in the sky.
Mighty fine downtempo electronica. Nice compositions.
4. Hidden Orchestra
More mighty fine downtempo electronica & trip hop. Neat instrumentation here.
5. A Year With Swollen Appendices, by Brian Eno.
A year-long journal written by Eno in the mid-90’s. There are some real nuggets for artists of all stripes. Austin Kleon, regularly quotes from this book, and now I can see why.
“Too Much Time” is streaming now! You can find on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and all the other usual suspects. Do you love it? Hate it? Let me know what you think.
Thanks to Diego PH for the photo used in the cover art.
