Lord Vanger – “Train”

Train, the second single from Lord Vanger’s upcoming album LEAP was penned on a high-speed train between Barcelona and Madrid. As the darkening sky turns the windmills and rustic houses into silhouettes flashing by, the train becomes a metaphor for life, with all the passengers hurtling towards their destination in the dark with little control over their destinies. But instead of feeling lost and fearful, … Continue reading Lord Vanger – “Train”

Pink Floyd – “Dogs”

Just like the Battersea Power Station, Animals, Pink Floyd’s sometimes overlooked 1977 masterpiece has been given a facelift. The remix is fantastic, Roger Waters’ lyrics are as relevant as ever and the musicianship is astounding. The album sold 12 million units, not as much as Dark Side of the Moon or the Wall, but still a testament to the band’s continued power and relevance. According … Continue reading Pink Floyd – “Dogs”
