Music of the Moment: Extended Edition

Playing on repeat:

  • Bon Iver: Blood Bank (Oh, and if you've never listened to For Emma, Forever Ago, please do. One of the albums that makes my life, and I've never met anyone who has listened to it who didn't absolutely adore it. One of those incredible, defining albums.)
  • Kings of Leon: Because of the Times (They're about as mainstream as I get, and they're fabulous. See exciting event planned below.)
  • Kings of Leon: Only by the Night
  • Anything by Animal Collective/ Panda Bear (different, but connected; I'm having a think right now about why I love avant-garde music, but I find the project of avant-garde art/poetry a bit silly--especially after taking two classes in contemporary lit this term. I'm going to have to figure that one out. This same question applies to my love [enduring passion] for Philip Glass; very contemporary, and I love it.)
  • Philip Glass: Solo Piano
Upcoming Concerts:
  • Dr. Dog @ Lee's Palace
  • Kings of Leon @ the Air Canada Center
