Roon surfaced this fantastic Marah album for me this afternoon. “The Dishwasher’s Dreams” is my favorite song on the album, raucous and desperate and hopeful.
This Mandolin Orange cover of Gregory Alan Isakov’s Amsterdam is just lovely for this afternoon’s listening.
I’m not the one to write a “best of” list of any kind, so I leave that to the experts and music pro-sumers — my friend Brayden has a well-informed and eclectic best-of 2020 list that is full of insight, for example. Instead, this is a recollection of memories as they come to me through some of the music that I listened to this year, in roughly chronological order. [Playlist]
This is a lovely live Margo Price album to listen to with a coffee on a cold afternoon.
🎵 Josh Ritter performed another Silo Show from his home on Saturday. He likened our quarantines to sitting at so many small, lonely campfires in the dark, and that with these performances we get to, for a while, sit together at one fire. It was a beautiful, moving sentiment.
Also while I’m catching up, this Joan Armatrading album is amazing.
Now playing: Josh Ritter’s The Animal Years. #nowspinning Might just play records all night, y’all
Decided to listen to some records while at the work-from-home-station today.
