Can somebody make a recommendation for me? I seem to be stuck in this loop of modern psychedelia. I’m not complaining; I’ve enjoyed everything that I’ve heard recently. However, this blog is supposed to be as diverse and varied as possible and I keep getting lazy with my selections, not to mention with my postingContinue reading “#446 – self-titled by Drakkar Nowhere”

#445 – The Battle at Garden’s Gate by Greta Van Fleet
I often hear older music fans lamenting the lack of new rock bands in today’s musical landscape. I can’t help but roll my eyes when I hear such a complaint, because the options available today are so diverse. There is truly something out there for everyone, if they’ll only put forth a little bit ofContinue reading “#445 – The Battle at Garden’s Gate by Greta Van Fleet”
#444 – Aratan n Azawad by Terakaft
Back to Africa for this selection, specifically Mali. These guys are another excellent group from the desert blues genre. They were founded by a couple of former members of Tinariwen, another fantastic Saharan band.
#443 – 666 by Sugar Candy Mountain
When you see an album titled “666,” it’s easy to assume what the content might be like. The album art alone is pretty far off from what you’d expect from an album with this title. There is a nice, big snake on there, though. The music is also a far cry from the typical satan-themedContinue reading “#443 – 666 by Sugar Candy Mountain”
#442 – Ennio Morricone Film Music Collection
Some of my favorite classic films feature scores by this legend. I’ve always loved the Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns, which have had such a prolific influence on storytelling in film. This time, however, these scores were the perfect accompaniment to a balloon duel between two little girls and their parents. I’m not going to sayContinue reading “#442 – Ennio Morricone Film Music Collection”
#441 – Computer Games by George Clinton
I worked on a show today where George Clinton was one of the guests. It was his 80th birthday, so I couldn’t help but imagine why it would be like to have him as your grandfather.
#440 – Dither by moe.
Over the past few years I’ve gotten more and more into the jam band scene, which has led me to check out many artists that I have long been aware of. In this case, I have friends from as far back as college and high school who have been obsessed with moe. for as longContinue reading “#440 – Dither by moe.”
#439 – Bloom by JIRM
I’ve been slipping a lot lately, both in my once diligent posting habits and in my commitment to choosing artists from around the world. I’m not going to pretend that that’s why I picked this one, because I didn’t realize that they were Swedish until afterwards. Nonetheless, it will hopefully serve as yet another opportunityContinue reading “#439 – Bloom by JIRM”
#438 – Color Wheel by Aqueous
Someone sent me a video of these guys’ set from the Peach Festival and I had to check out an album. Another entry for my live music to-do list.
#437 – L’Invitation by Freedom Fry
It’s so great to get an album recommendation first thing in the morning. That’s probably been the best side effect of this project. I now have a collection of people with widely varied musics tastes sending me albums on a regular basis. Sometimes, by the time I wake up there’s multiple selections waiting for me.Continue reading “#437 – L’Invitation by Freedom Fry”
