Now Playing -- what's on tap in your musical world?


#1

So I thought we might do with a thread about current listening! What’s excited you lately? Which old favorites have happily come back around in your listening space? Discovering new music and sharing favorites is such an enjoyable part of hi-fi after all. So what’s Now Playing on your rig?


For my part, I finally discovered John Lurie and The Lounge Lizards just this week! I know that’s a little late to the party, but hey… Funny thing is that Lurie’s Marvin Pontiac album has long been a favorite! I knew the name of who was behind it, but somehow never looked into John Lurie as himself, not to mention his brother and the rest of the shifting Lizards gang.

And for a final twist, I was only inspired to look him up on TIDAL (did the LL really only have 4 studio albums in all that time?) when some friends cued up Fishing with John after a recent dinner at their house. When you include that hilarious little project I feel like I definitely discovered two inspired threads of artistic awesomeness at once!

Well thanks Theandymanrocks, that was a fun way to wrap up the week! Most of those artists were new to me. I particularly liked the Aurora album – great voice, heartfelt songwriting, and an interesting story…

Is the female vocalist on the Warhaus albums his old bandmate from Balthazar?
