[Hans Abrahamsen - Schnee]

Hans Abrahamsen, Schnee

Seattle Symphony performed this piece as part of its [untitled] series, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

Sonic Youth, Confusion Is Sex / Kill Yr. Idols

I’ve read a number of record guides, and very few of them recommend this album. They are wrong. Confusion Is Sex is probably the closest Sonic Youth has gotten to its modern classical roots, and I like it a lot.

Duffy, Rockferry

On Facebook, I posted this controversial stance: Duffy > Adele. Maybe I like Rockferry because it’s not piped into every restaurant and waiting room.

Johnny Cash, American IV: The Man Comes Around

I scored when I found a copy of this album with a DVD of the video for “Hurt” at the thrift store. Then I heard the rest of it, and … wow.

Torche, Admission

This album entered the Favorite Edition list on pretty much the first listen.

Various Artists, Living In Oblivion, Vol. 1

I had a copy of this album, but the booklet got water damaged in a refrigerator leak. So I gave it away. Welcome back.

Washed Out, Within and Without

Part of me wishes the cover of the album were homoerotic, but the music on it is great.

Anderson .Paak, Ventura

I’ve heard of Anderson .Paak but not from Anderson .Paak, so a $2 copy of this album at Goodwill, unopened, seemed like a low-risk way to find out who he is. I’m impressed.
