Worth a watch and a listen: Wild Combination

Last week I watched "Wild Combination" for the second time. It's a documentary about the late Arthur Russell, who was a musical genius.

After watching it the first time a long time ago, I have been listening to Arthur Russell's' music intensely ever since. I especially like the album called "Calling Out of Context" and generally how he managed to experiment with a lot of different genres.

One of his most famous songs is called "This Is How We Walk on the Moon", but you should definitely spend some time browsing through some of his other songs. Or maybe even buy one of his records. And while you are at it, listen to Jens Lekman and When Saints Go Machine.
