This was supposed to be a productive week, those hours after work. But I ended up doing what any solid music nerd would: procrastinate by going through my records and singles, rediscovering old favorites and discovering new treasures hidden within my collection. We listened to The Smiths on repeat for a few days. I dug out an old single by The Rondelles.
I got Andi into Crystal Stilts.
And despite all this recounting of the past, of all the listening to albums already in my collection, I took the time to put together a playlist full of brand new stuff to play on my April 6 show. In true form for such a show, the numerous bold items below will allow you to sample (stream and download) cleared tracks. It commences:
