I’m always grateful for a recommendation of some good country music. This has always been a blind spot in my listening habits and I find more and more over time that I’ve been missing out on a great deal of solid material from this genre.

#623 – Private Space by Durand Jones & The Indications
Another great recommendation from a coworker. These guys sound like they were sent her in a time machine from 1975. If you had told me this was an old Motown album, I would’ve had no trouble believing you.
#622 – thank u, next by Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande has a song in the Trolls movie that I have always really enjoyed. I was reminded of it today, which led me to realize that I’d never heard one of her albums. As has been the case so often with big time pop albums, I enjoyed this one a lot more than IContinue reading “#622 – thank u, next by Ariana Grande”
#621 – Lovers and Leavers by Hayes Carll
I met a new co-worker the other day who turned out to be quite like-minded in many ways, one of which being a love for live music. He suggested quite a few, extremely varied artists to me, which is my favorite way to pick the daily selection. The next week or so will be pepperedContinue reading “#621 – Lovers and Leavers by Hayes Carll”
#620 – On All Fours by Goat Girl
This all-female quarter from London blends electro-pop with an indie rock feel for quite the entertaining effect. I will definitely be following them with great interest. Hopefully they do a US tour soon.
#619 – 8 by Incubus
It’s been years since I’ve listened to Incubus. There was a time when I was obsessed with these guys, but for whatever reason, my attention strayed elsewhere for quite some time. A song from this album popped up on Spotify the other day and I was surprised to see how recently it was released andContinue reading “#619 – 8 by Incubus”
#618 – Odyssey Number Five by Powderfinger
Yesterday’s selection led me to these guys, another classic Aussie band.
#617 – Wisenheimer by Custard
My kids are currently obsessed with an Australian cartoon show about a family of dogs, called Bluey. The man who voices Bluey’s dad is Dave McCormack, the frontman of Custard. These guys are an indie band from the ‘90s with a bit of a cult following who have seen a resurgence when they started releasingContinue reading “#617 – Wisenheimer by Custard”
#616 – Futures by Jimmy Eat World
I was only familiar with one, very poppy era of this band’s music, but after having dinner with some friends who have seen them relatively recently, I’ve delved further into their catalog. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked some of their later albums. It just goes to show youContinue reading “#616 – Futures by Jimmy Eat World”
#615 – Welcome to the Family, Baby by The Big Wu
If you’re into the jam band scene at all, these guys should be right up your alley. They’ve been around since the early 1990s, perhaps not fully active all of that time, but still producing new music with regularity.
