Decided to listen to some records while at the work-from-home-station today.
Happy Friday. Listen to some fucking Japandroids. https://japandroids.com/
My view of Josh Ritter’s Silo Session tonight: a full performance of So Runs the World Away in its 10th anniversary! ❤️ 🎶
I’ve been making time to listen to music before bed lately. The new album from Waxahatchee is so brilliant. And Frank Turner turned me on to Micah Schnabel a few weeks ago. His writing and singing is urgent, cutting and moving.
I missed the live broadcast last night because of My Work, so watching Josh Ritter’s latest Silo Session with lunch is a real treat. It has been special to “gather” with family dispersed far away and share these performances the past few weeks.
I vividly remember riding in the front passenger seat of a VW Rabbit, on the way up the steep road to Powder Mountain with my dad, listening to a tape of John Prine. I was probably nine. It may be the first memory I have of really paying attention to music. (It was certainly the first time my dad explained marijuana to me, when I asked what Illegal Smile meant! Later I would read the liner notes for his wonderful anthology “Great Days,” where Prine asserts that the song was never about drugs, but it became such a beloved pot smoker anthem that he didn’t have the heart to break it to them.
Crap. I got new speakers and amplifier, and now I’m one of those insufferable guys who can tell the difference between mp3 and FLAC. 🎶 DON’T SAY OGG VORBIS
Took a pretty big leap with this. #mbfeb 29! 📷 📻
