Firstly, I’d like to apologize for my late post. Last week I was on a business trip that involved me driving from my home town, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, through Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and out to Bucyrus, Ohio. Because, of some unexpected weather I was stranded for a few days without Internet access. Despite my delay, I still enjoyed the trip and the seven-hundred mile trek into the heart of Ohio. It is nice to see other parts of the country.
As a companion, I bought along the new The Six Parts Seven album, Casually Smashed To Pieces. If one is unfamiliar with The Six Parts Seven then it is important to point out that they are an instrumental group. Their music tends to be meditative, musing, and introspective. This makes a great soundtrack for when one is focusing on some other sentiently demanding activity such as driving, studying, writing, reading, etc.
Coincidently, The Six Parts Seven are based out of Kent, Ohio; a town that I passed through on my way to Bucyrus. While Kent itself seems like regular ol’ Surburbia, USA, the surrounding area, at least to the south, is very bucolic. This made for a subdued trip through a peaceful, recurrent atmosphere. The same can be said for Casually Smashed To Pieces.
