#339 – Songs to Make Up To by Ta-Ku

It’s always nice to come across an album organically while going about my day. In this case it was on a Pandora station that I heard at a friends’ house. I should mention that said friend has recommended some excellent albums in the past, so I was planning to request some more selections anyways whenContinue reading “#339 – Songs to Make Up To by Ta-Ku”

#338 – Maybe We’re The Visitors by Page McConnell

Another opportunity to listen to a new album on the day of it’s release. This one is the latest solo effort from Page from Phish. It’s a collection of some very ethereal, atmospheric music that seems like it would make a great score for a moody, contemplative sci-fi film. Or a high-concept and slow-moving videoContinue reading “#338 – Maybe We’re The Visitors by Page McConnell”

#337 – Women In Music, Part III by HAIM

I’ve been following the career of HAIM for years, since I became obsessed with their song “Forever.” I then saw them at Bonnaroo and was supremely impressed with their live show. This album is another impressive offering from this trio of sisters. I added several of these songs to my go-to playlists and have alreadyContinue reading “#337 – Women In Music, Part III by HAIM”

#335 – With A Little Help From My Fwends by The Flaming Lips

This is a fantastic tribute album collaboration by one of indie rock’s most prolific bands. If I have to tell you who they are paying tribute to, I’m not sure if we can be friends. These are some really great versions of these classic songs, performed with quite the array of collaborators. The Lips haveContinue reading “#335 – With A Little Help From My Fwends by The Flaming Lips”

#334 – Soft Sounds From Another Planet by Japanese Breakfast

Getting back to work is a blessing and a curse. It certainly is good to be out of the house doing anything, but all of the indoors time has drastically warped my view of what it is important to spend time on. It’s a sort of interesting sociological experiment to see how people can adaptContinue reading “#334 – Soft Sounds From Another Planet by Japanese Breakfast”

#332 – The Definition of X: Pick of the Litter by DMX

Had to pick some DMX today after his overdose and heart attack last night. I realize this is a greatest hits album, but it’s the only recording of his that I haven’t listened to. I wish him well, and hopefully he comes through this and is able to get the help he needs. This hasContinue reading “#332 – The Definition of X: Pick of the Litter by DMX”
