The Analog Way: a recent letter to friends

Greetings Musical Chums!

Hope the Spring is unfolding in a wonderful way for you all. I'm writing to let you know that I've done something that was either very smart or totally ridiculous. Probably somewhere in the middle—but you be the judge...

Robert Wyatt—A Sunday In Madrid

 

Just discovered this particular Robert Wyatt track today. Love it very much. In a way it lays out a blueprint for The Beta Band—to my ears at least...

Pretty Much All I Want To Hear Right Now

Thanks for such beautiful music, Beach House. Very disciplined. Just gorgeous.

Contra

 

We're incredibly excited over here at Harmonium World HQ today—Vampire Weekend's stellar second album, Contra, just arrived on our doorstep. It sounds amazing on vinyl. Just a joy. 

Brooklyn To Athens And Back Again

Three great things happened whilst in Athens, GA over the holidays.

#1) @bodine and I got a tour of the brand spankin' new Terrapin Beer Brewery by the amazing Brad Fowler of Trappeze fame. We learned how the brews get brewed and even got to sample the goods. I highly recommend the Hopsecutioner. Man oh man, I wish these fine purveyors of beer had been around during my halcyon Athens days of yore!
