Sure, Satie. I would not be able to explain it that profoundly,  but I guess you've nailed it :-)

indeed
I really thought this was Ryuichi Sakamoto for a minute.
I couldn't help thinking of the theme to Westworld.
Always delightful!

Hate those glitches.. it's been happening to me all day. I'm ok with Joni, but I'd be disappointed to miss Agnes Obel!
 
I get those, too. It takes a page refresh to get the stream going again. Sometimes it picks up where it left off, sometimes I get something else...Joni would be OK.

not a good substitute

Downton Abbey?
Loved how they featured her music in the Dark series on netflix. I've enjoyed what I've heard here on RP

Worst song ever belongs to Yoko Ono. 
 
You obviously don't get out much.
Listen to "It's happening again"
And she's got a brand-new album...

I swear that I thought that is what was playing when I walked into the kitchen and I couldn't figure out how my husband would have THAT on.
I really like it.

Darn, as a small icon  I thought that cover art was (already) that now ubiquitous Black Hole representation...

Too soon.......
Haunting in a good way
the young and the restless?

Why? Please elaborate more on that!

my thoughts too
 

While the modal character resonates, her music is not as subtle - This is the age of compromise.
Sorry but worst song ever!
Every time I hear this song I think of the day RP was broken.. not a good thing. Leaving it at 8 because its not the song's fault but this could really use a break from the rotation.

I shut down my RP app and that didn't help.  Then I actually rebooted my tablet because I thought there was an app process that was having an issue. {#Eh}   I guess someone had to kick the station.  {#Wink}
hmmm, I hope everything is okay at the only radio station that matters! Seems something is not right?
What on earth?

Never really picked up on it before this. Agnes sounds exactly like Fiona Apple {#Cheesygrin}

So I guess I didn't just imagine already hearing that psychedelic little Simon & Garfunkel diddy, eh?
What's going on RP?  We been listening to Chord Left for several hours now.  It's a nice song, but seriously....can we move on to something else now?  (Yes, I know...agreed...appears they are stuck in a loop for some reason.)

Beautiful and restful
Lovely song 
Definitely fits the seasonal mood; chilly rain, gray skies, snow falling at higher elevations... And indeed, reminds me a lot of Erik Satie!
Brilliant!
Mais ce n’est pas la musique
kinda sounds like the Young & the Restless music....which is also meant as a compliment.
Unpretentious. Meant as a compliment. 
Lovely
This kind of reminds me of the video game Chrono Trigger.  I'm not sure exactly what part; I was not as deeply obsessed with that game as many people were but I really enjoyed the music and it always brings back memories, or at least some kind of abstract nostalgic feelings.
Beautiful
Ah, the sparse, spare, Scandinavian minimalism is immediately apparent, even without her singing on this number. It's strange how such minimalist music gets me just there. 9 from the Scandophile Nottingham jury.
She is just as stunning and captivating in concert - just her on piano, a cello and violin. Astounding clarity to her voice and piano. Great ensemble.
A record you all must have.

Nice!
(I see I'm not the only one who hears a resemblance with Erik Satie.{#Wink})

rdo, I only mentioned it because it just so happens that a family member has the same name as said actor, but with the extra "e" in the last name. {#Cool}
Really really like this woman's music thanks Bill
Obviously deeply Satiesque... but a minor chord misses a the very end.   :)

Wow. I really like everything I've heard from this effort. My oldest son has recently taken up piano partially inspired by this this and the Lucovido Einaudi and similar minimalists I've played for him...

rdo, I believe that the last name of the Michael of the Halloween series of movies was spelled, Myers.  I say this not to be an uptight stickler, but rather because I have a somewhat personal stake in the matter. {#Cheesygrin}

Reminds me of the Michael Meyers theme song a bit...from Halloween ..or just horror flick soundtracks more generally...creepy yet lovely.

Yes!  *That's* what it made me think of.  I couldn't put my finger on it!

Mr. Satie did influence hundreds (if not thousands) of pianists and composers.  This song does have a lot of that tension and dissonance that Satie brought about with minor chords and major sevenths.
