As an engineer, I spend a lot of time with headphones on while at work. At home, there’s always something playing — LP’s, 7″s, CDs, MP3’s, Spotify — it’s never quiet. Throughout the day, it isn’t uncommon for me to send my wife, or random friends text messages that say “holy shit, I forgot how good _______ is,” or “why am I just finding out about this band now?” and of course “did you hear the new _________ album??”
My wife pointed out that my love of all music, but especially bizarro experimental music and noise rock mixed with my love of the written word would make for a good blog. What will you find here? I don’t know. We’ll see. The plan for now is try to post one record a day and write something to accompany a link to a Bandcamp page, Spotify link or Youtube video. I might just put up a link to something that catches my ear with no explanation, leaving it up to you, the reader to come to your own conclusions. So there.
