I still love their hypnotic beats, synth sounds and laid back vocals.
I had no idea who they were until some years ago. I think I Shazamed one of their songs on a TV series. Since then realized they are quite frequently used on a lot of movie soundtracks and TV shows.
I think the theme from House was a Massive Attack piece. I always liked that theme.

Nice! I like it - simple and acoustic. :happy
Yes, I find it quite calming. Now I’m listening to Bukka White, the great blues man whom Fahey “rediscovered” in the early 60s by him sending a letter addressed to "Bukka White (Old Blues Singer), c/o General Delivery, Aberdeen, Mississippi"—presuming, given White's song "Aberdeen, Mississippi", that White still lived there or nearby!

Yes I watched House for years and had no idea who Massive Attack was

The theme song from Luther - w Idris Elba - is a massive attack song.

Ending piece from the movie Insider was Massive attack.

New (to me) Twisted Pine. From the album "Right Now," Amadeus Party: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qn3_zz7 ... Jo&index=3
People always ask us: “So... what genre are you??” It's a reasonable question and honestly there’s no short answer. You could call it, ‘neo-folk indie soul avant jazz jam grass-icana’ but that doesn’t quite roll off the tongue. We’re definitely rooted in bluegrass. We grew out of that community, and are continually inspired by its explorers like Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Sierra Hull and Billy Strings to name a couple. They’ve helped grow Bluegrass into a mighty big tree, and we’ve got our little Pine branch somewhere on there. There may be no banjo and relatively few boom-chicks, but there’s an acoustic intensity and life to our grooves that I think would make the founding fathers smile.

LOL!

So... Was that a rewarding, enriching audio experience Tony? And you felt so uncontrollably enthusiastic about it that you just had to share, in case others might be equally enthralled? Any particular mower size, brand or engine speed that you find particularly appealing?

Allison IS part of Birds of Chicago and is releasing her first solo record soon titled "Outside Child".

Elise Davis - Empty Chairs and Yellow Bed.

Elise released her latest record "Anxious. Happy. Chill." in April.

Arlo Parks is another interesting artist. So much good/new music.

All good voices. I especially like Birds of Chicago. I've been listening to them for a couple of hours now while I read.
a week later I still find Birds of Chicago on spotify a good listen. Good voices, good listening. Thanks/

Somehow it took me all these years to stumble onto "The Magnetic Fields".

"A Cat Called Dionysus" is what happens to be on at this very minute.

Wow, love them.

Amythyst Kiah performs the song Black Myself on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Powerful voice, powerful song.

This is a live — and looser — version of the tune that was originally released on the Our Native Daughters project with Rhiannon Giddens, Leyla McCalla, and Allison Russell.
