Rugby's Daily Lunchtime Album Selection and Show on the DJ Extension

So, for the last week or so, I’ve been playing an album on the Roon Discord channel at lunchtime. Users gather, listen to the album, and chat with each other. Please come and join us.

The invite link to the Discord channel is in the linked post below:


If you can’t join or load the extension, then just cue up the Daily Selection and listen with us.


Today’s Listen will be:

Neroli (Thinking Music Part IV) (Expanded Edition)

by [Brian Eno]

Consisting of one epic hour-long piece of music, subtitled ‘Thinking Music Part IV’, Neroli provides one of the most meditative and drifting chapters in Eno’s back catalogue. Blurred textures and low chiming sonorities slowly mutate over the course of the album, taking the listener on a beguiling and therapeutic journey.

“Alters the space you’re in, your frame of mind. Memories crop up from the recesses and you feel relaxed, somehow eternal. Like no other music we’ve yet known.” -Pitchfork

Hello Everyone,

Getting a bit of a late start but today’s selection is:

Tycho - Epoch

Epoch leverages the sonic aesthetic of Dive’s down-tempo vintage-style synthesizers and beautiful melodies while drawing on the kinetic energy of Awake’s progressive composition and organic instrumentation.

I like this concept…guess I should check it out. I just assumed based on these posts, that time zone wouldn’t match up very well. Perhaps listeners will be there when it suits me. Can’t hurt to find this out myself.

Cheers Daniel. :sunglasses:

Hello Everyone,

I’m starting a bit later to accommodate a range of lunchtimes. Today’s selection is:

‘Inni’ is either the first-ever sigur rós live album, or second live film (and follow up to 2007’s acclaimed iceland tour film heima). in fact, it is both: a 75-minute film and 105-minute double live album of the band captured in full flow at the close of their last tour in november 2008

Good Day!

Today’s Selection is;

Marillion: Live FRC-036 - Palais Des Sports, Besancon, France - 5th October 1989 .

Setting later to get the mid west and west in in the action. Today is:

Happy Monday! (no not the group)

Today’s selection starting at 12:30 EST will be
