What I’m listening to, monthly, all in one place.

Each semi-monthly (let’s not make promises our bodies can’t cash) roundup covers new music releases and new-to-me artists for your consuming pleasure. Roundups are written in a nice, concise list format because we, collectively, have the attention span of a gnat.

Join me as we traverse my library’s recent history and enjoy…

August Roundup

Yet another month down in the boiling cauldron that is 2020! How did we get here? I honestly haven’t the slightest clue, and I don’t know about you, but August really tested my patience and well-being. Now, that’s enough negativity for today– let’s get to the goods. As per the norm here at The Greater…

About Me
