There I Ruined It is my favorite thing on the internet right now, where your favorite songs are lovingly destroyed. Some favs...
look in to the eyes that you hate
while seeking the path towards change
treating the worst like a friend
the loss of what could have been
sitting by the window looking out
choosing to speak rather than shout
to care instead of to curse
there's no room to make this worse
I'm obsessed with the olllam right now. They are a blend of Irish folk and Post-Rock. Fans of Tortoise or The Sea and Cake should check it out.
Tortoise performed TNT live at The Art Institute of Chicago’s Midwinter 2019. I know what I'll be listening to during work tomorrow.
This afternoon, while working on new type styles in the Minted Component Library, I turned on a live stream of Mexican Institute of Sound. Incredible sound coming from these guys. It's certainly boosting my productivity!
Hey Spotify, thanks for putting Serenade To A Poodle in my Discover Weekly playlist. I have no idea what I've been listening to that made you think I'd like that, but it put a smile on my face.
John Prine is in town tonight, and sadly I'm not there. Hopefully I'll catch him at Red Rocks someday. For tonight, I'll pour a glass of wine and listen to Fair and Square.
Getting the weekend started with Blue Screen Life by Pinback. Released 17 years ago in October, still one of my favorite albums. Listen on Spotfiy.
KEXP just posted a set from Pedro the Lion recorded live in their studio this past December. I was obsessed with their album Control in 2002. I'll have to blast that on the big speakers today.
Recently, I ran across "Loney, Noir" by Loney Dear on an old hard drive, it was one of my favorite albums ten years ago. I went to listen to it on Spotify, and what do you know, he has a new album. It's going to be another favorite.
