I don’t listen to much music. I go to a few shows, and festivals…but my job (which I do all the time) is writing, and personally speaking, when it comes to listening to music while writing, less is more. I love classical, and jazz, and anything without lyrics. Taste-wise, I’m a second-tier hipster—I get into things after all the cool kids get into ’em. I like Louis Armstrong, Nina Simone, I love singing Elvis, Dean Martin, I love Maria Callas, I like a lot of folkster stuff, I like me some dance stuff and hip hop stuff…whatever comes up.

So over the last year I wind up just listening to things I blog, or that I run across. Occasionally, when I’m desperate for some auditory romance, I ask a few friends including Anna Brones for a few fresh tunes. But mostly it’s just a random mix of youtube stuff that I listen to again and again for a week and then forget about entirely.

So I figured to collect all the random aural affairs in one place. Here. I’ll add more all the time.

I’ll add others as I remember them.

    i recently discovered “Glorious” by Mamuse on their All The Way album. Beautiful harmonies….reminiscent of old ‘call and respond’ gospel. Try it.
