Charles's Knitters Music #1


Lot of my friends likes my music colllection!!! What kind of music i like? I love to listen indle music. Most my collection is independence music. In this area love jazz and mix with quiet music....All my collection music from "CDbaby" world independence music store. Check this out!!!

Iam posting some music... I think knitters might like this!! I guess saying "Charles's knitter music recommention"

CD Title: "Simple Thing" Listen

Artist: Zero 7

I will say this is romance of 1960s French pop-jazzy strong elements of laid-back Seventies groups.

It's remarkably cool album, Zero 7 defined its sound as one of urban solitude, misty streets, and warm soundscapes. WOW!! A+++


CD Title: "Emblems" Listen

Artist: Matt pond PA

I think Sounds like Peter Gabriel and this singer-songwriter combines elements of folk and Tindersticks-style Baroque Pop. Matt's(voical) voice is one of many instruments used to construct a series of richly textured songs. Another of the band's five members is a cello player; her work adds a unique sound to the album, driving forward many songs with an intensity that only an instrument played with a bow can. The lyrics are deeply personal-surely some of the events related here actually happened to Pond-and the music suits this. Lush and layered, it cradles Pond's words and emphasizes them. If you like Atl. folk rock this is great band for everybody!!

CD Title: "Just a thought" Listen

Artist: Shwa

Shwa Losben using driving guitars layered on top of an acoustic back-drop, follows the tradition of Brit-rock bands like Radiohead and Travis,building on it to form a unique sound of their own.

He released a vinyl single in the UK under Bracken Records, and held the top downloaded song from Washington Post.com.

CD Title: Makana Listen

Artist: Makana

Makana is Hawaiian traditional slack key artist. Slack key is unique tradition that has been passed down from generation since the arrival of the guitar to islands in the early 1800's. Considered one of the premier folk arts of Hawai'i. His music transcends category and trend by integrating elements of folk, rock, ethnic, classical, bluegrass, jazz, traditional, ambient and Hawaiian slack key in gentle to commanding arrangements. I use to live hawaii for five year . Iam gone to his show many time. Like a "Celtic Knit" Makena is trasitional hawaiian guitar. CHECK THIS OUT~~www.makanalive.com

Hi Charles. You should get the Scarf Style book. It's a really nice book. Alot of the patterns are patterns that I would actually knit. You know how you buy a book and you'd probebly only knit one. This book has lots of doable patterns.

You can get it at Michaels since I last checked. But you can order it through amazon.com or knitpicks.com.
