[James Blake - Assume Form]

Boston, Boston

Sometimes, you just can’t argue with conventional wisdom.

Del tha Funky Homosapien, No Need for Alarm

There’s something about beats made around 1993 that I really dig.

James Blake, Assume Form

The Colour in Anything made me approach Assume Form with caution. It turns out this album is vying for a spot on the year-end Favorite Edition list.

James Tenney, Postal Pieces

It’s amazing how much music can be generated by scores that fit on postcards.

Jeremy Denk, c.1300-c.2000

This survey of Western classical music spanning seven centuries is another album vying for a spot on the year-end Favorite Edition list.

Lou Reed, Transformer

“Satellite of Love” and “Walk on the Wild Side” are obvious choices for why this album should be in my collection, but really, it’s because it has “Perfect Day”, which Duran Duran covered on Thank You.

Phoenix, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

I dismissed Phoenix back in 2009 as that band in the car commercial. Thing is, “Listzomania” is damn catchy, as is the rest of the album.

Sly and the Family Stone, Greatest Hits

Most of this collection consists of tracks from Stand! It also includes “I Wanna Take You Higher”, which Duran Duran also covered on Thank You.
