Spotify presented me with a category called Rock 1972 this morning and this album was the first one I came across in there that I had not heard before. Turns out that was quite the prolific year.

#890 – Hard To Imagine The Neighbourhood Ever Changing by The Neighbourhood
I was listening to some Nipsey Hussle when I came across the track he was featured in from this album. Hip Hop has been underrepresented on the blog recently, so we’ll have to do something about that.
#889 – The Sane Asylum by Blind Illusion
This band has shifted their lineup around fairly regularly through their career. I had to check out this album when I learned that Les Claypool and Larry LaLonde of Primus were in the band at that time.
#888 – Paranoid & Sunburnt by Skunk Anansie
I overheard a conversation about this artist the other day and had to check them out. Honestly, I’m a little surprised I never came across them. When they were releasing their first few albums, I was at my peak of heavy music fandom. To be fair, I don’t think suburban white males were necessarily inContinue reading “#888 – Paranoid & Sunburnt by Skunk Anansie”
#887 – self-titled by MUNA
I have a few email subscriptions that provide me with a lot of my daily selections. Today, it came from an update about the upcoming shows at The Wiltern, one of my favorite Los Angeles venues and probably the one that I have been to the most. This artist drew my attention due to theirContinue reading “#887 – self-titled by MUNA”
#886 – Tailwinds by The Fearless Flyers
This group started as an experiment by members of Vulfpeck which is comprised of bass, baritone and standard guitars accompanied by a minimalist drum kit. For this album they’ve added some horns as well.
#885 – Details by Frou Frou
I was completely obsessed with Imogen Heap a few years ago, having seen her extraordinary performance at LA’s Greek Theater. If you’ve been following pop music for any amount of time, you’ve probably heard some of her work, whether you’re aware of it or not.
#884 – The Soft Machine by Soft Machine
Yesterday’s selection led me to my all-too-familiar pastime of picking the next day’s selection off of Spotify’s “fans also like” section. It has never steered me wrong yet. Jinx!
#883 – Philadelphia 1980 by Frank Zappa
One of my frequent sorrows as a music fan is my love of artists that have passed away or are no longer creating new music for whatever reason. I will ravenously devour any of their work that I have never experienced and seek out anything similar, or featuring their past collaborators. Frank died before IContinue reading “#883 – Philadelphia 1980 by Frank Zappa”
#882 – Queens of the Breakers by The Barr Brothers
There are a few songs from The Barr Bros’ previous album that I have long been obsessed with, so it feels a little silly that it took me so long to branch out further into their catalog.
