I'll be totally honest with you; the sole reason that "What I'm listening to" took a brief hiatus is because I have been listening almost exclusively to soundtrack music for about a month now and I was just starting to feel a little... well fine I'll admit I was getting embarrassed at how nerd-heavy this blog is becoming. But I have since remembered that that's not how I want to live my life - I am a nerd and I am proud!
So here we are again then! If you're a gamer with your finger on the pulse you might think it's a little strange that I'm listening to the soundtrack to 'Far Cry Primal' the same week 'Far Cry 5' was released. Obviously I've spent the last two nights playing a bunch of 'Far Cry 5' (duh) and it was the beautiful music in '5' that eventually led me to discover 'Primals' relentless beast of a score. I really like them both, this one just happens to be what I'm actually listening to while I go about my morning routine (and did I ever slay that cup of tea I made. I slay'd it good.)
BONUS: an adorable interview with the composer Jason Graves in which he calls plants hi-hats and talks about how he almost killed his hi-hats by not giving them enough sun or water. So cute.
