MF06 Cover Art

The only thing that surpasses the joy of discovery with my own eyes is watching the joy of discovery in my son’s. I hope this fruitcake finds you well and happy!  This year has been an incredible one for me.  I have almost finished my house, shot a documentary that I plan on entering into […]

Get More M83!!

My sister Jennifer turned me on to M83 this year and while I enjoy their stylings overall, something is keeping me from diving in with them.  I can’t put my finger on it, but I will do my best to keep them in my listening loop.  This track is an undeniably good start to this […]

Get More Imogen Heap!!

Get More Sigur Ros!!

An alternate version of the song from the album Von by Siguir Ros that I cannot recall how I found, with power and grittiness like very little else they have ever done.  It is hands down the best track they have ever done in my opinion.  Put on the headphones, turn up the volume and let […]

Get More Stina Nordenstam!!

I have been a Stina Nordenstam fan since the mid-90’s after I read a Rolling Stones article comparing her to Morrissey (whom we all know I am a fan of).  Well, if you asked me she is nothing like him save her extreme individualism, but I was still drawn into her music like a moth […]
