Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 6/22/11

Avast and harle, ye faithful swabs!

Okay, so I'm a bit carried away from Father's Day in which my whole clan hauled me off to the latest Pirates of the Carribean flick which was much better than the previous two and nearly on par with the original. What a nice diversion from all the stress and chaos.

A hug, a kiss and a honk to my wifey of 16 years as of this past Friday. Don't know how we did it, but 16 and counting, my pigeon...

As the boxes slowly empty and the next strategies of this life begin to unfurl, I'm just thankful to be given the opportunities I have, new ones including a very rewarding magazine assignment where I covered a local history museum. Always great when your host and curator wraps an hour and a half tour with an encore of music chat!

Now that I've turned my copy in ahead of deadline, the agenda previously outlayed here will resume and move forward from that point. Do hang out with us, yes?

Nice to see Mumford finally getting some love 'round these parts. Well, maybe not love, but at least a listen. Probably my favorite album of '10. I can't explain the way that record energizes me.

Kind of a lame week for me. Not back in the swing of listening to music yet. Heard Julie London for the first time, though, and her voice definitely struck me.

Julie London - Sings the Choicest of Cole Porter
Julie London - Julie Is Her Name
Julie London - Julie Is Her Name Vol 2
Satie - Avant-Dernières Pensées, Alexandre Tharaud
Tanya Donelly - This Hungry Life
Belly - King

This week I've only listened to classic rock via random feature on iPod.

Mark, I still have to hear the new Yes album. Your thoughts? I too went on Yes binge not too long ago.

Chuck, yeah, that Mumford and Sons album is exhilirating. Very, very busy record.

Dpth, kudos on your alpha dedicating, bro!

cjk, unfortunately, after my wife slid on ice and totaled my truck, I'm driving a '93 vehicle since that's all I could get with the insurance money. No CD player, sob...unfortunately, classic rock is pretty much most of what I'm privy to or can stomach since FM sucks.
