It’s Been a Long Time
I shouldn’t have left you without a strong rhyme to step to. I know some of you may be wondering what’s up with the volleyball picture. Well, lately I’ve been so excited about my new interest in photography that it has taken up a chunk of my time. I’m particularly drawn to sports photography and if you’d like to see more of where I’ve taken my camera, feel free to visit my photo blog. Now back to the music!
Many of you know that I’ve been a fan of Ahmed Sirour‘s work for months, especially his EP The After 2AM Sessions. Well, Ahmed will soon release it as an LP with 6 additional songs and today he released the first single from the LP, an 8 minute instrumental called FORePLAYING. Ahmed says that this single “heralds back to the time when artists/musicians just grooved out and worked a song until they felt it was done”. We certainly wouldn’t hear an 8 minute song on commercial radio and I actually enjoyed it so much that I played it two times in a row. It’s just that good and I assure you that for a $1 purchase, Ahmed is giving us much more than we’re paying for; including a BONUS track. Check out the single below and visit his Bandcamp page to purchase it.
