Like Doc Shoe’s Mama Always Said: It’s Important to Try New Things
My friend Chris brought me thirty-eight albums on a thumb drive. Thirty-eight albums, carefully selected to blow my fucking mind. To a geek like me, this is better than a free trip to Disneyland.
What’s more interesting is, there’s so little overlap between my library and Chris’s. I never even heard of most of these bands. I’ve now got a pile of music that’s completely different from anything I normally listen to. And I dig that. I love being introduced to new sounds.
Over the next week or so I’m going to work my way through these thirty-eight records, one by one, posting songs as I go. You may not like all of them. Hell, I don’t expect to like all of them. But that’s how it works: you’ve got to do some digging to find that next record that gets you excited. That’s what we do here. And along the way we’ll explore some off-the-wall weird fucking music.
This oughtta be fun. Just click the Chris’s Stash tag to follow along, folks, and keep on rockin’ in the Free World—
