Jeff Buckley – Grace

This track is taken from the spectacular album of the same name. I had never heard anything like it before when I first came across it in high school. I was transfixed by it’s sheer intensity.


Glen Hansard – McCormack’s Wall

This is taken from on of my favourite albums of 2015: Didn’t He Ramble by Glen Hansard. My relationship with Irish music can be complicated; sometimes it is nice to reminded of home, sometimes I find it too twee by half.

However, I encountered this record at a time when my mind was drawn from Berkeley to the Emerald Isle which made it’s traditional sound perfect. This is especially true of this track which reminded me of my rurual small town adolescence.


R.E.M. – Strange Currencies

I have some time on my hands this Christmas so thought I might post a few tracks after a LONG hiatus. I’ve been thinking a little bit about some of my favorite albums and so thought I would post a few tracks from them that haven’t featured yet.

This track is taken from the 1994 Album Monster. R.E.M. were one of the soundtracks to my High School years with Monster, Automatic for the People, Out of Time and New Adventures in Hi-Fi all filling me with joy and wonder.
