There's some albums that just pop up in your mind every few months. It seems like Winter 2014 had a few of them - Rum Sodomy and the Lash, Astral Weeks, Music From Big Pink. Then there's some I'd rather forget - let's just scrap the J.Cole and Big Sean...
Might have been when I got introduced to Fela! What a life changing experience from an old colleague and mentor, who introduced me to AfroPop Worldwide. What a podcast. What a guy. Thanks Paul K! Truly life altering!
My dad convinced me when I was much younger that Holland was the best album by the Beach Boys. Apparently we're wrong in that stance, but I firmly stand by it. "Only with You," "Sail on Sailor," "Leaving this Town" - come on, those are classics.
This playlist has a special kind of reminiscing - thinking about being in 5th grade and being very impressed by my best friend's older sister's boyfriend's music taste - Pavement, Andrew W.K. (what a cool album cover! there's blood on it!), Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Not sure how common that specific nostalgia is.
