Thanks to my good California pal Ethan Miller, axeslinger extrordinaire for such amazing combos as Heron Oblivion, Comets On Fire, Feral Ohms, Howlin Rain, and Silver Current label maestro, for inviting me to contribute 20 LPs to his ongoing ‘Home Listening’ playlist, which has invited pals like Mary Lattimore, Steve Shelley, Ben Chasny and others to create a soothing soundtrack to their homebound days. I left out your average Brainbombs and Discordance Axis-type staples of my show (though arguably they ‘sooth’ a particular demographic of listenership, heh) and breeze through some particularly heartwarming records in my digital stack. Each day another curator lands on top of the last one. Bookmark and enjoy.
And if you see this after April 23rd and want to eke out my individual playlist you can do that here. But keep with the party! Thank you Ethan, was so much fun staying connected and digging out some faves:
