#328 – Still Life by Kodomo

This week marked the start of the Derek Chauvin murder trial. For anyone who has spent the last year under a rock, Chauvin is the former Minneapolis police officer who unnecessarily knelt on the neck of George Floyd until he died. He has become the symbol of out-of-control, violent policing in America and his trialContinue reading “#328 – Still Life by Kodomo”

#327 – Pirate’s Choice by Orchestra Baobab

It’s amazing how quickly I can forget about the things that I intend to do, at least when it comes to this blog. In this case, it’s my decision to diversify the national origins of my selections. I was doing okay with it for what turned out to be a very short time before IContinue reading “#327 – Pirate’s Choice by Orchestra Baobab”

#325 – Bandana by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib

This blog project has really led me to celebrate the different tastes and experiences among my friends. It makes my life a lot easier to just be able to ask someone who knows better what they’ve been listening to. In this case, I’ve had my hip hop knowledge expanded as well as discovering a newContinue reading “#325 – Bandana by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib”

#324 – Tremendous Sea Of Love by Passion Pit

After yesterday’s “rediscovery” of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, I tried to think of other artists whose older albums were prolific in my listening habits at the time. There’s definitely no shortage of members of that category, and I could probably do at least a month of albums based on that theme. That wouldn’tContinue reading “#324 – Tremendous Sea Of Love by Passion Pit”

#323 – L.W. by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

I haven’t put much effort into finding new releases for my daily selection. There have been a couple notable ones that come to mind, but it had not occurred to me until tonight that it might be fun to try to listen to albums on the day of their release. I have been a bigContinue reading “#323 – L.W. by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard”

#322 – Cheap Queen by King Princess

My favorite thing about this project is the daily opportunity to discover a new artist. It has opened my eyes to many genres that I might never have realized how much they appeal to me. One big one has been the world of indie pop. I’ve traditionally been reluctant to spend much time on theContinue reading “#322 – Cheap Queen by King Princess”

#321 – Meta-Musica by The Funky Knuckles

I was doing so well with publishing my posts on time, but lately I’ve really been slipping. Now, however, I am rededicating myself to upholding the values of this blog, which are few in number. I would like to point out that, although there have been a few posts published later than I would like,Continue reading “#321 – Meta-Musica by The Funky Knuckles”

#320 – You You’re A History In Rust by Do Make Say Think

After a particularly prolific Sigur Ros listening experience under very specific and unusual circumstances a few weeks ago, I have been on a quest to discover other artists who create similarly moving musical journeys.  Not surprisingly, there are quite a few out there who can be considered peers of the Icelandic soundscape masters and IContinue reading “#320 – You You’re A History In Rust by Do Make Say Think”
