    This morning I have "The Eagles" radio station on Pandora rocking while prep for a review. In fact, The Beetles "Here Comes the Sun" just kicked-in (which, with the big storm that's about to dump rain, is a good pick me up).

    So... begs the question: What are you listening to right now?

    Couldn't decide so I put the whole library on shuffle. Playing "The Curtain" by Snarky Puppy at the moment I saw this thread.

    For anyone not familiar with them I'd recommend their album "We Like it Here"

    Rock songs expertly turned into lullabyes! Linda's voice ranges from barely a whisper to soft crooning amidst ample sense of the recording venue. Very unique and soothing, this album frequently finds itself spinning on the big rig during a nightcap after a hard day. Perfect!

    Right now, nothing, yesterday SACD's of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and then Toto IV. First one rocked me to my soul, second one was ok.

    ;)Today I'm listening to sports talk radio in preparation for the NFL draft. It's music to my ears.

    I (had to) listen to then new Ed Sheehan album as I drove my kids to school this morning.

    Not all that bad. Kind of bland... not something I'll listen to on my own... but not too bad.

    I discovered Sons of the Sea this week, which was a side project of Brandon Boyd in 2013. As a long time Incubus fan I'm not sure how I missed it.

    I'm a complete podcast junkie: This morning, listening to "Bird's Eye View"... the unofficial Baltimore Orioles podcast.

    Screen Shot 2017-04-28 at 5.17.28 PM.png The Times: Beat Torture

    This classic album was released on the defunct (but insanely awesome) Creation Records label (England). I collected a huge chunk of the Creation Records catalog back in the 80s/90s... some bands you may recognize: The Bodines, Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, RIDE, Oasis, Primal Scream... among a host of others. Lots of great music in there!

    I remember buying this album at my favorite indie record store (Vinyl Ink Records) just outside of Washington DC. It shipped in a black plastic back with the album's art work.

    Haven't listened to this one in a while... brings back a lot of memories.

    I do that all the time. HGTV, Food Network, DIY and Cooking Channel. Then after an hour or two I come to my senses and bring up Pandora ;)

    I've been pumping Starley - Call on Me (the Ryan Riback Remix) the last few days. for some reason I keep wanting to go dancing when I hear it.
     
  20. I have been listening to Roy Orbison Black and White Night on CD. I have not had a chance to watch the DVD yet.

    One of the great american college band albums: The Connells "Fun and Games"

    If you're a fan of late 80's/early 90's alternative...this US band had some good stuff going on.... there's a little bit of a roots vibe here. A+ stuff

    and this, really need to run it through your HT or headphones as your computer speakers will not do it justice.

    Digging into Mutemath's Vitals (CD) this morning while cranking out some work...

    Using the OPPO UDP-205's internal headphone amp paired with PM-3 headphones.

    Sounds amazing!!! And the music is sweet, too!

    Finished up LCD Sound Systems's "A Sound of Silver" earlier... two thumbs up!

    Listened to Natalie Merchant Tigerlily this morning. Tidal MQA Master (96 kHz/ 24 bit) on my AKG K712's. It was nice, been a while since I've pulled them out. Reading Sonnie's thread about headphones made me want to pull mine out.
