the studio music

Music has charms to soothe a savage breast...
William Congreve, "The Mourning Bride"

My breast has been especially savage of late. I'm mad. I have a lot of things to be mad about—politically, socially, existentially, professionally— but anger is not what this page is for. This is the place to dance.

If I can't dance, it's not my revolution.

The Music of Treme

This website charts every piece of music on the incredible HBO show, Treme.

The webmaster of this lovely little site has carefully compiled lists and references to all of the music on David Simon's series (every piece performed, played on radios, in car stereos, at parties, and hummed). The compiler has also created lists on iTunes, Amazon and has linked every piece of music to youtube. This site (not sponsored by HBO or the show), is the best place to go if you want to build a serious collection of the great music of New Orleans.
