A couple of weeks ago, I got up on a lazy Sunday morning, put on a pot of coffee and fired up iTunes. I was in the mood for some Cocteau Twins, but my husband pleaded with me to choose something else, saying that they were “too energetic” for morning listening. I found an ambient podcast that fulfilled my need for sound and his need for calm, but I found myself thinking that that must have been the first and probably the only time that The Cocteau Twins have been called “too energetic”. A quick Facebook poll led one of my friends to comment astutely that anything less energetic than The Cocteau Twins is medically classified as a narcotic.
Who are your favourite artists for a long, lazy and indolent Sunday morning?
