I can’t believe how often I’ve been getting behind with my blog posts. While I do always pick an album and listen to it, I often don’t compose a post until days later. I realize that I claim to be recommitting myself to this project each time that happens, but I really mean it thisContinue reading “#595 – Radio Tragedy by Tea Leaf Green”

#594 – Culture by Migos
Obviously, these guys are one of the biggest names in hip-hop and have been for some time. That just makes it all the more absurd that it took me until now to give them a listen.
#593 -Missing Person by Kelsey Karter
I was on my way to a late night Walmart run when realized I still needed to pick an album. I had just been listening to Donna Missal and one of this artist’s songs came on.
#592 – Cowards by Cedars
Spotify has repeatedly turned me onto artists that I then become obsessed with and this seems to be in line to be the next on that list.
#591 – phér•boney by Joe Russo

I used to be really into jazz fusion, but it’s been years since I really looked for new music in that genre. This is a fantastic album by a Brazilian modern jazz great.
#588 – Parachute by The Pretty Things
After yesterday’s Caravan selection, Spotify pointed me towards this group from the same era. It’s just another reminder of how many unknown great artists from the past I still have to discover.
#587 – Cunning Stunts by Caravan
I had previously listened to another of Caravan’s albums, but this one, with its delightful title, just had to be explored. Great cover art, as well.
#586 – Amber by Autechre
This is a great electronic artist that Spotify suggested to me.
