Last Week's Distilled Gems

A trifecta of excellent releases last week made commuting that much more enjoyable. ODESZA killed it with Better Now and The Last Goodbye, Destroyer’s album was superb kicks off with It’s in Your Heart Now which I went back to many times last week. Finally James Grant and Jody Wisternoff delivered a phenomenal compilation and mix for the 13th installment of their flagship series. If those aare the only three things you listen to from last week, you’ve won. Then go and check out Jazzanova’s release.
