God Bless America(na)

As we venture into what will undoubtedly be the strangest Holiday season we’ve ever experienced, this is a time to give thanks for all we have. Many of us have less than we did at the start of the year, and more than a quarter million Americans have passed away due to Covid-19 – yet, […]

You Can Get with This, or You Can Get with That

For this post, I had a change in direction from where I started; this was supposed to be a collection of odds ‘n ends that hadn’t made it into other posts (that’ll now happen in a future post), but now I have a theme – and it continues a trend from the previous three posts, […]

Do the Reggay

The bounty of music that has come out in the past several weeks has me feelin’ like Celie in The Color Purple, when she found all those letters Nettie had written her…. “What is I’s gon’ do? There’s so many of ’em“… So much good stuff, a man with a regular job can’t get to […]

You Should Be Dancin’, Yeah…

The musical harvest continues, and I seem to be writing in themes – the last post was all about the R&B and Jazz, and the post following this one will focus on new Reggae & African releases. For this post, I’m checking out new Dance, Electronic, and Downtempo music, with the new album from Disclosure, […]

Soul Searching, Diggin’ a Little Bit Deeper

This is about as mainstream a post as I’ve ever done, or will ever do; there are some major heavyweights gettin’ a spin from me this time around. It’s all part of a sudden abundance of interesting new music coming out – like the pandemic musical moratorium is finally over, or something like that… In […]

Pump Up the Volume of New Music

I would normally give you a bit of a preamble here, but there is suddenly an abundance of new music to check out, so Ima keep it short here, ’cause I’m gonna be busy listening to all the new stuff, and pumping out the posts the next few weeks. When this is posted, it will […]

Someday, We’ll Be Together (ohh yes we will)… Again

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m TIRED of this pandemic life! From a social perspective, even a loner like myself wants to be around other people besides my family; that’s one of the reasons why I like going to the gym (even though I don’t talk to anyone there) – I’m just around […]

Social Listening, Pt. 3

Right about now, at just past the halfway point of the year, I would normally be talking about my best picks of 2020 so far; this year has been everything but a normal year. I honestly cannot yet formulate a list of the best of what I’ve heard so far in 2020, so Ima just […]

Social Listening, Pt. 2

At the rate things are going in the U.S., we may very well be locked down again here soon; as it is, we’re being banned from travel to EU countries, and even recommended to self quarantine for interstate travel to certain places. So I guess the best thing to do is something you enjoy alone, […]

Social Listening, Pt. 1

It’s been quite a month since my last post – a lot has happened in the world: some very bad stuff, and some promising stuff. My title this time around isn’t inspired by current social or political unrest, but a play on words of a concept brought about by our current health crisis- social distancing. […]
