The Weekly Playlist – Oct. 17 to Oct. 23

All albums this week no individual songs. It doesn’t seem like much, just the four entries, but I listened to Duran Duran’s latest multiple times as well as No Doubt’s first album. Takes a lot of work sometimes to write something fair and accurate, at least from my point of view, and even then, some doubts (not no doubts) can creep in. Thus, the debut album series I started earlier this year returned after a few months off and an anniversary brought out the vinyl, a far better experience than streaming. Rush – Counterparts (album) The highest-ranking ever Rush album … Continue reading The Weekly Playlist – Oct. 17 to Oct. 23

The Weekly Play List – Oct. 10 to Oct. 16

A couple of new listens this week, not only new releases but also new to me. I also happened upon, meaning, I forgot I had the album when searching for something to listen in the car. See, the Weekly Playlist works as I normally would have left the house without anything in hand.   Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 Soundtrack (album) My nephew has amazing music tastes for a kid his age, one of the many things I love about him. He has found bands on his own as well as those I nudge him towards. He’s mostly a … Continue reading The Weekly Play List – Oct. 10 to Oct. 16

The Weekly Playlist – Oct. 3 to Oct. 9

What started as a just few rock bands ended with a Saturday rush of music that helped fill out the week with a broader scope of music. Two, maybe three obvious rock bands, arguably one falls more in line with pop rock but still a rock band and the other I’m not so sure about anymore. Two different genres fell into play thanks to Amazon music. Rush (various songs) See if you notice a pattern in these songs. Expect a forthcoming Rush post. Everyday Glory La Villa Strangiato Cygnus X-1 Natural Science Countdown Available Light The Garden Working Man In … Continue reading The Weekly Playlist – Oct. 3 to Oct. 9

The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 26 to Oct. 2

Already five of these Weekly Playlists! So far, the idea behind posting what I listened to the previous week works because I am not only listening to more music but also bands and artists I likely would have filed away and never got around to listening. Case in point… BTS – Butter, Permission to Dance, My Universe (songs) OK, listen. In a strange coinkydink, I did not know who BTS was but at the same time I did. Last week’s Weekly Playlist brought them to light so I decided to jump in. Turns out I’m not too out of touch … Continue reading The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 26 to Oct. 2

The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 19 to Sept. 25

Not as much music listened to this week as I hoped. A caravanning road trip with me driving alone ended up in one car with others so that put a kibosh on more than six hours of potential tunes roundtrip. But I managed to get a few songs and two surprising albums in for Sept. 19 to Sept. 25th. TobyMac – Promised Land (song) A repeat from last week. It’s been a while since a song really struck a chord and I repeatedly played it. “Promised Land” from  TobyMac shows amazing depth in song writing and singing. Coldplay – Coloratura … Continue reading The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 19 to Sept. 25

The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 12 to Sept. 18

A pretty good week of listening to music and from a wide variety (I think) including one I had never heard and will never listen to again. The Weekly Playlist works, now in the third installment, as much of these I likely would have not listened to. If you’re wondering what I mean by this, go back to the start. Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band – Trout Mask Replica (Album) Who needs waterboarding when you have this album from Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band? 2Loud2Old Music (fellow music writer) reviewed this, poor guy, and actually listened to Trout … Continue reading The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 12 to Sept. 18

The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 5 to Sept. 11

A road trip to Mount Rainier National Park (link is to my review not spam) helped boost this week’s listening playlist and some fellow bloggers’ recent call-outs offered some added incentive to check out previously untapped bands. The ranking has no bearing on favorability. I like lists and most people do too, gotta start somewhere! Chris Isaak – Live at the Fillmore (album) Brought this signed copy on the road trip to listen for the first time. No, it was purchased at his concert in Bend, OR a couple of years ago, not signed in person. Sad face. But the … Continue reading The Weekly Playlist – Sept. 5 to Sept. 11

The Weekly Playlist: Aug. 29 – Sept. 4

My internal deliberations to put this website to bed tends to come undone with a new idea. Ironically, I don’t listen to music all that much just those albums I review, whether old or new releases, and when concerts were a thing, I’d dive into albums of the coming feature. Yesterday, after listening to several albums I thought, why not a weekly music round-up or some type of list of those bands I listened to and the individual songs and/or albums. Thus, Weekly Playlist was born. Then I thought it was stupid. Then I thought, maybe it would be cool. … Continue reading The Weekly Playlist: Aug. 29 – Sept. 4
