#335; 2015 in music.

  Every year, I put together a ‘best of’ post in December, highlighting my favorite albums from the previous year. This year, I’d like to do something a little bit different (and a little bit late, clearly). I’ve looked through both my Spotify and my last.fm accounts and have come up with the albums IContinue reading “#335; 2015 in music.”

#327; Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen.

After a lackluster June & July, my 30th birthday two weeks ago seemed to be a turning point in my summer in Boston. Suddenly, there was promise on the warm air, instead of dread.

#263; musical obsession of the country sort

I’m sure by now, especially if you follow my twitter feed, everyone has heard of my total obsession with the music of the new Grammy-winning duo The Civil Wars. I first heard their country hit “Barton Hollow” and followed it up with the outstanding “Poison & Wine”, which has to be the best country songContinue reading “#263; musical obsession of the country sort”

#242; never let me go – the best of 2011

I’m going to start this right off with an unpopular opinion. I do not think that Bon Iver, Bon Iver is the best album of 2011. As a matter of fact, I liked For Emma, Forever Ago more, even if I do think Justin Vernon is one of the most talented people making music rightContinue reading “#242; never let me go – the best of 2011”
