curiosities? drop a line!!
how often are you bored by the music you listen to everyday? if you’re like me, the answer is may be something like “every other day”.
this morning i’m listening to a podcast from npr called “all songs considered”, a name spinoff from the ubiquitous “all things considered” and something that will hopefully provide me with a continuous stream of new and interesting music. with the latest blip in my sojourn around the world being my departure from sweden to korea (more on that in an upcoming post) i’ve found it funny that this program is featuring music from 3 artists from the 3 cities in which i’ve most recently lived in. (maybe there is something about second cities, after all.)
baltimore / the lower dens
san francisco / sunny & the sunsets
gothenburg / junip (josé gonzalez)
if you’re so inclined (and i certainly encourage you to do so), take an hour out of your regularly scheduled music programming, put on your headphones and get prepared to be refreshed.
