It’s such a huge relief to have something to look forward to again. Today, at long later, has seen the announcement of this year’s Phish tour dates. I’m sure the majority of you are rolling your eyes at me, as this sentiment sounds hyperbolic to someone without this particular obsession. To you I say, don’tContinue reading “#370 – Ice Melt by Crumb”
I heard that Lloyd Price passed away, and since all I knew of him was the Grateful Dead’s cover of “Stagger Lee,” it seemed only fitting to listen to an album of his. Continuing in my proud, unintentionally morbid tradition of discovering artists from their obituaries.
Happy Mother’s Day to all! I hope all the moms had a nice, relaxing day, and all the dads and kids reflected on how fortunate they are to have such amazing women in their lives.
I’ve been working on a music video for the past few days and it’s kicking my ass. It turns out that three 14-hour-days in a row might be too much. It’s a small miracle that I remembered to write this, actually.

I celebrated with a rifftrax of The Rise of Skywalker, the most recently polarizing installment of the franchise.Continue reading “#363 – Star Wars by Wilco”
I’m once again disgusted by this blog’s lack of true diversity. It took me just under a year to pick a Spanish language album for the first time. That fact dawned on me as I read an article about the new Netflix show about Selena. I didn’t really know much about her, except that sheContinue reading “#362 – Amor Prohibido by Selena”
I really enjoy this style of mellow, atmospheric electronic music. This is a fun album, but my main takeaway is just how impressed I am that this artist has used essentially the same cover art for each of their 10 albums. You have to admire their commitment to a bit.
