Now that I think about it, what are you listening to lately? I’ll go first, no pressure for new stuff here. I’ve included suggested playing times and tasting notes.

Dancing whilst Cooking Oracular Spectacular, MGMT

Happy beach party (maybe involving drugs), definitely delighted.

Everyone in the Room is Trying to Write Emails No Better Than This, John Mellencamp

Cigarettes, dive bars, banjos, Tom Waits minus the “please stop making that noise.”

I Listened to Martin Sexton & Damien Rice Too Much The Wild Hunt, Tallest Man on Earth

Loads of guitar playing, storybook lyrics, amazing voice carrying everything.

Cheer Up/Instant Ambiance Up From Zero, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zereos

group sing, hands clapping, goofily grandiose mixed instruments.

ps: I’m so impressed by my younger brother Wilson’s band, Rosemary Three and their new new album 4 & 5.
