the olllam

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.

Mexican Institute of Sound

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.

Blue Screen Life

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.

Loney Dear

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.

I stumbled onto Jeffrey Martin tonight and just had to stop everything I was doing and listen to a few albums straight through. Great way to end the week.

Chris Stapleton

Getting this cloudy Fall Friday started off with a little Chris Stapleton. I love a good cover, and Chris does a great job with "Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning", a song made famous by Willie Nelson.

Getting the day started with "+/-" by Buke and Gase.

A Deeper Understanding

The War on Drugs has a new album out, and I'm loving it. They are going to be in Chicago on my birthday... mmm, maybe I should grab some tickets. Listen on Spotfiy.
