Last Week's Distilled Gems

Releases from 12/24 turned out well, and all are worth listening to assuming you like the genres. Given this was a two-week stretch between new releases and several long drives, I’ve actually listened to all these several times.

MUSIC:reflections, is mostly new music releases that I am tracking for myself and figured I’d share.

General disclaimer about new releases:

  • This is an informed curated pull and, like life, there are no guarantees. There may be some duds, some meh and hopefully some gems that are real keepers that bring you joy.
  • This is pulled from artists I know and love, to artists I’ve heard good things about and want to check out their newest output.
  • They roughly in stack ranked order from must list immediately to want to get to.
  • Not everything in here is for everybody, hell, not everything in here will end up being for me. This is about exploration, getting outside of our bubbles, and ultimately about discovery.

I’ll post on Fridays with an aggregated playlist, roughly in the order I want to listen to them – from first listen to last. I work through it over the coming week, then rinse and repeat.

Bottom line: YMMV
