SOUNDTRACK: THE LANGLEY SCHOOLS MUSIC PROJECT

Every few years I remember that The Langley Schools Music Project exists, and then I listen to nothing else for about a week. Recorded by a group of Canadian school kids (and their music teacher) in the late 70s, "Innocence and Despair" features the students' favorite songs (think: a TON of Wings, a little Fleetwood Mac, and the only version of Desperado I can deal with) and their own vocals + instrumentation. It's a weirdo-treasure of an album, and a super fun/strangely emotional listen – the cymbals crashing in "Sweet Caroline" and "Rhiannon" give me ALL the feelings, and just try not to get stoked during any of the Beach Boys covers, for real. Hope you dig it!

Researchers believe that music stimulates our brain connections, they believe that music affects spatial-temporal reasoning (the ability to see part-whole relationships).
