NOTE: COMMENTS ARE NO LONGER OPEN FOR THIS POST!
I want to get back on a new music trip. Believe me, I could listen to the same twenty CDs over and over without too much problem, but I am interested in keeping up (to some extent) with new stuff.
I’ve said before that I’m not that interested in entire albums. There are some that work for me, but for the most part I’m kind of no longer willing to tolerate six okay tracks for the benefit of four good ones. It’s easier than ever to buy a single song from an album and that’s fine with me.
I’ve been downloading KEXP‘s “Music That Matters” podcast (mainly the ones with John in the morning) and discovering some stuff there, such as this:
That’s an excellent example of something I like. Here are more examples, but I’m open to try anything, even rap and country.
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO: In the comments (or in an email, or on Twitter, or on Facebook) I’d like you to please send me THREE songs. I’d prefer if they were released no earlier than 2011 (and it would be nice if at least one was from 2012). Just songs, please. If you think “anything” from an album or artist is good, that’s fine, but pick one. I know I’m being pretty picky for a beggar, but I’m already trying to deal with the fact that there’s so much stuff out there.
HERE’S WHAT I WILL DO: I will listen to all of them. Every one. (Yes, you can make me listen to truly awful stuff if you want.) I’ll then do a blog post where I talk about them and we’ll see which ones “took”.
How does that sound? Does that sound like fun?
To this end, COMMENTS ARE OPEN. Or, as I say, you can email me (click on “Contact” under “Elsewhere” in the right-hand menu), hit me up on the Twitter, or leave a comment or message on Facebook.
Please help me or I will be very sad.
