Viva la Cinco de Mayo!
Most of the time, I’m musically adventurous. I spend a lot of time stepping outside of artists I know and consuming a large amount of new releases in the hopes of finding new favorites.
One of the things that has seemed to ebb with my depression returning in 2018 (though it feels like it may be on the way out), though, is this adventurousness.
What’s your “finding new music” plan? Radio? Here? Elsewhere? I tend to line up somewhat neatly with Pitchfork, and use their Best New Music section as a jumping-off point. And yes, I use this place as well.
From one of the most enduring albums for me. Perfectly melancholy, and you can dance to it! Sometimes.
Playing my daughter Miette’s favorite song for her birthday.
It’s possible I’ve played this before, but my brother got me to listen to these guys and they’re a (guilty?) pleasure.
Follow THAT, Yankees and Athletics.
My brother got four tickets from his Pepsi rep that he can't use, so it turns out the Milks and I will be at tonight's game. Right field, lower deck. Anyone else going?
I remain blown away at my ability to become sunburned.
Off to the family cabin for the first of two trips up this month. My daughters have been up since Sunday; having some time just with Cathy is great, but I'm really missing them at this point.
