If your new to the Maysles, I’d start with Grey Gardens, the story of an eccentric mother and daugther.
As I’ve mentioned before, I have been working on a musical top 1000 since 2007. It’s almost finished, another 50 or so tracks to go. Let’s call it my musical fingerprint.
It has come to my attention that a certain Dan Snaith, who works under the name Caribou, has been doing the same thing.
He recently published his top 1000.
There is about two to three percent overlap with my list.
Not on my list was “All About Money” (above), a queer but wonderful composition by an eighties studio project called ‘Spontaneous Overthrow’.
“All About Money” is also on the compilation Personal Space (Electronic Soul 1974 – 1984).
Keywords are cosmic, druggy, weird.
You can watch the full episode (only about twenty minutes) here.
I previously mentioned this episode here.
