What are you listening to Part the Third

Recommended Posts

Donald Brinegar Singers, Celebration Collection

Yes, really.  The lead singer of Al1ce shared privately with me that she sings on here, so I gave it a serious listen and it's so peaceful and soothing and perfectly sung I can't help but love it.

Best Coast - Always Tomorrow

I’m a big fan of these guys. Love the lo fi, surf pop sound. Pixies vibes.

Plays to the strength of the Cicadas, plus it is a great album for us old guys.

Sometimes you just need a burst of concentrated happiness with all the shitty news out there. Thankfully Bob & his Wailers always deliver.

I’m re-listening to Al1ce’s acoustic set from two weeks ago, it sounds so good.  That bowed upright bass...

^^^ Never knew this existed!  Listened to some, which led me to this.  There's also a documentary video about it....

Just discovered it today, myself.  Was searching for all versions of “Push the Sky Away” on Tidal and ran across two covers (in addition to the original and several live versions).  Loved it, listened to the rest of the album.  Love how they translated “Red Right Hand” to a lullaby.  The rest didn’t need as much work to make it less rocky.  Love how melodic the source material is, their versions really bring that out.

Now listening to Endless River because of a certain discussion on Facebook.

Elias Black, Reclamation -- found out recently this was recorded by Steve Albini, so listening to it on the good system.  Deliciously raw.
