Release The Long Ships - I Have Never Seen The Light

I love hearing stories. So when I stumbled upon this on a blog I follow, Veror's music blog (originally from an ArcticDrones interview), I had to share it here.

This is a man that prior to 2011 wasn't a musician, just someone that was passionate about music and listened to a lot of it. In 2011 he started his journey to explore his passion in music in a different way than just listening. I have so much admiration for this man. Whereas my exploration into my music passion branched into blogging, travelling huge distances, and other things, his passion led him to create. It is nothing short of beautiful to see one go out and put extra effort to experience what they're passionate about.
Previously known as Rain Catalogue, Release The Long Ships is Ferenc Kapiller from Szombathely, Hungary.

I was going to initially post The Heart of the Mountain until tears started pouring out of my eyes from I Have Never Seen The Light. Something about this song grips me...

Please visit ArcticDrones to read his words about his album, Wilderness.
And check out Ferenc's artwork on Pintrest.

Deaf Center - The Day I Would Never Have

Revisiting my "loved" tracks on, I came across this. The very first thing I thought about was how much I really want to do another float experience but with this song. There is nothing like feeling music with your entire body through the water.

Deaf Center is an contemporary classical/ambient collaboration between two Norwegian musicians, Erik Skodvin and Otto Totland.

Big Big Train - Judas Unrepentant

"This is the story of Tom Keating, the forger. Tom was an art restorer who eventually turned to forgery after failing to break into the art market. He was on a personal crusade to destabalise the art world by forging works to fool the experts. He deliberately planted clues in the works that would reveal them as forgeries. He also cunningly managed to falsify provenances for his forgeries."

Big Big Train is a progressive rock band based in Bournemouth, England.

Koji - Peacemaker

If you're going to look for Koji on Spotify, you will find his album "Crooked In My Mind" and a few other artists by the same name. I'd recommend Bandcamp to listen to his music.
