So, I don’t know about y’all, but where I live, it snowed this week. This wouldn’t be an issue if I lived somewhere where it was actually winter, but I don’t. I live in the American mid-west where May is usually in the mid 70s. The two main results of this are a) I suddenly care much more about climate change, and 2) I have been forced to make my own warmth. To that end, I’ve put together a playlist centered around that which gets me feeling tingly: horns.
Horns are the single greatest thing a musician can add to a mix. They elevate any production by being larger than life. Horns command attention and magnify the emotion of a song, bringing the intensity of even the greatest song up to eleven. More than that, horns are just fun; a touch of the genuine in musical landscape dominated by synthpop and minimalism. So here’s a collection of songs that I hope will get you feeling as horn-y as I am.
Are there any songs that keep your mind focused on that brass? Let us know in the comments!
