Your browser does not support iframes. Our heroes age. After the passing of Yukihiro Takahashi last month, it got me thinking about how long we have Sakamoto-san and Hosono-san with us. Both are due a tribute album of some sort. Thankfully, Milan Records has done a sterling job bringing together Sakamoto collaborators, friends, and those…
Yukihiro Takahashi – Drip Dry Eyes (R.I.P.)
The eyes in this house aren’t very dry at the moment. We lost yet another legend today. This time, it was the shocking, though not unexpected, passing of drummer and composer Yuki Takahashi, who made his fame as drummer and singer of the Yellow Magic Orchestra. He first gained fame with the Sadistic Mika Band,…
Cocteau Twins – Frosty The Snowman
We at MYNTH wish you and yours a very Merry Gregorian Christmas, and please stay safe with your loved ones. For the eve of the birth of the Lord, we offer a charming secular song done ably by post-punk legends the Cocteau Twins.
[Video] Mindaugas Piečaitis – Catcerto
No, this isn’t a prank. Lithuanian composer Mindaugas Piečaitis really did make a piece of orchestral music, and the cat, Nora, holds her own in comparison to more bloated practitioners of contemporary music.

The Boomtown Rats – I Don’t Like Mondays
The Boomtown Rats and I seem to be on the same wavelength. Serbian summers are nasty!
Julee Cruise (RIP) – Falling
Sad news to report today. Julee Cruise, who served as the muse for the David Lynch-directed TV series (and movie) Twin Peaks, and who had a massive hit with the song Falling, which was composed by Angelo Badalamenti, has passed away at the age of 65. She had been suffering from lupus since at least…
[Video] Trio Paloma – Ay, Chabela
Enjoy the pleasures of Trio Paloma, Serbia’s answer to mariachi music!
Vangelis (RIP) – Blade Runner (30th Anniversary Edition)
Vangelis has passed away in Paris at the age of 79. His reputation needs no introduction to connoisseurs of music, especially those into soundtracks. For my money, Blade Runner was the jewel in his crown. May he Rest In Peace.
