One of my go-to Spotify playlists right now is called Instrumental Funk. I discover a great many of my daily selections through Spotify, either through playlists or suggested artists. I hope my musician friends can forgive my appreciation for the streaming music conglomerate.

#417 – Do Easy by Tasseomancy
I can’t say for certain, but I’m pretty sure this is the first band I’ve listened to that features Canadian twin sisters. Not sure if that adds anything to the experience for anybody, but I’m kinda phoning it in with my posts this week so I’m latching on to any detail that seems even mildlyContinue reading “#417 – Do Easy by Tasseomancy”
#416 – For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver
#415 – Solos, Sessions & Encores by Stevie Ray Vaughan
I always circle back to SRV from time to time as he was such a unique presence in the blues scene and was one of the guitarists who inspired me to take up the guitar.
#414 – Easy Way by The Cactus Blossoms
This album was the perfect mood to break up a mildly torturous day of driving with 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 year olds. A little bit of country, a little indie rock and bit of a mellow vibe really hit the spot.
#413 – Britney Jean by Britney Spears
#FreeBritney. I’m on vacation and don’t have enough time to get into all of my feelings about this particular perpetuation of the patriarchy, so I’ll just say this: Can we please let this poor pop superstar live her life? Can anyone out there imagine this happening to even the messiest male celebrity? Even Shia LeBoeufContinue reading “#413 – Britney Jean by Britney Spears”
#412 – Highs & Lows by Under a Rest
It’s not everyday that I come across an a cappella album, but this one by my niece’s group is pretty great. They also cover “Thunderclouds,” one of my favorite pop songs of the past few years.
#411 – Antarctica by Tom West
I listened to this album while reading in bed last night. While I did really enjoy it, I also fell asleep about 3/4 of the way through and woke up at 1:30 AM with Spotify still playing. This is not to suggest that it was a boring album by any means; It was a busyContinue reading “#411 – Antarctica by Tom West”
#410 – Eat The Light by Lotus
I’ve spent the last few days traveling with the family and it has been quite the roller coaster ride. Unpredictable ups and downs coming in left and right, often with precious little respite strewn about. Nothing has ever made me question my life choices so frequently and so deeply. But this is the selected pathContinue reading “#410 – Eat The Light by Lotus”
#409 – After The Fire by Cody Jinks
Happy Father’s Day to all! I hope all the dads out there are enjoying a fun and mellow day with people who made them the proud pater familiases that they are today.
