Today is another Bandcamp Friday (all the proceeds bypass Bandcamp and go directly to artists). Many artists are now passing their fees on to other organizations in solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement. At the moment, society is in a state of flux and as always, the future is unwritten. We can go anywhere … More Bandcamp Friday, second quarter
Once again, because I never refined it at the time, this mix was at its origins nearly twice as long (unedited version here). I edited it down to an hour’s worth of songs that most defined 2019 for me. Please enjoy, and if you do, let me know why and how much. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1pcifmJH8Ups2Oienrasvi?si=XivvDMfgQqihjiPl0GPMKQ Tracklist: Broods … More 2019 best of
This was originally a nearly two-hour “faves” mix that I had to whittle down last week into a more easily digestible (and just over 60 min) best of for 2018. It was not easy, and yeah it’s probably still a little too long, but I think it sums the year up. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/12okVXkjiobVH6lCp6reZF?si=WSRsmM3RQ_6nDtslA3kcvQ Lucy Dacus – … More 2018 look back
As I mentioned in a previous post, Bandcamp is waiving its fees each month in order to pass them on to the artists. (The next one is coming up on June 3rd). Here’s a look at what I bought for the first quarter of 2020. Links will take you to Bandcamp pages, Spotify playlist is … More Bandcamp Friday
As promised, here’s my best of 2017 mix. Just relistening to it made me nostalgic. It’s interesting sitting with it now that’s it’s two and a half years old. It’s always adds the question about whether it aged well (mostly, yes). Since I didn’t write about them at the time I don’t remember all of … More 2017 best of
I made my last post on here at the end of 2016, promising I’d be back. Not a lie it turns out, since here I am again. I forgot this space existed and what it was for. My computer was getting older and more annoying and it took time to post. I guess I was … More can we go back in time?
What’s to be said about this year that hasn’t been said already? Mostly everything that happened fell under the category of “never thought it would happen” and yeah, honestly most of it sucked. But no matter how awful things are, music is still there to pull your soul out of an abyss and it always … More 2016 best and brightest
Short on words this month. Just a few tracks to share. Happy Halloween!
September has come to an end and so has another edition of Pop Montreal. Last I heard it knocked everyone out cold. I know I tried to pack as many shows as possible into 5 days, with little sleep and a whole lot of beer. Here’s what I managed to catch: Tess Roby, Hua Li, … More September
August was a whirlwind of a month. I managed to catch one solitary show (Landlady @ Casa del Popolo) and it was amazing. A big chunk of the month was taken up by a trip to NJ/NY to see babies, mostly (followed by serious gratitude that I bucked the procreation trend myself). I passed up … More Au gust
