Listens by year: 2022.
Lake Street Dive
The first 9 songs are nearly perfect.
Father of the Bride (2019)
Makes me think of Vampire Weekend and Paul Simon at once, which I like.
All Ashore (2018)
A surprisingly intricate dive into an America that could elect that president.
By the Way, I Forgive You (2018)
Late to the party, this is my introduction to Brandi Carlile. So many good tunes here.
Hand. Cannot. Erase. (2015)
A masterpiece. If you can ever listen to the surround mix along with the hardcover book he release, do it.
Helplessness Blues (2011)
I cannot think of a more perfect album for harmonizing and wistfulness.
For Emma, Forever Ago (2008)
Sad sap music, indeed. It also helped me code my future.
More sad music, but oh so hummable. Introduced me to this lovely weirdo.
Yoshimi Battles... (2002)
The Flaming Lips
Noisy and weird and beautiful. A Flaming Lips record finally clicked for me.
Tenacious D (2001)
When I wasn't listening to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, I was listening to this.
Dark Side of the Moon (1973)
This is the band that got me into music on a deeper level. DSotM is my favorite of their albums.
