“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.” –Sergei Rachmaninoff

When I’m feeling freaked out about whatever—work, life, the state of the world, the scarcity of decent tacos at this very moment—I turn to music. Given the current state of fuckedupness the world, and all of us in it, finds itself, I’ve been listening to a helluva lot of music. Collected here are some tunes, old and new, that have been keeping my noggin distracted while the world falls apart. Hope you all are well, safe and find something here that piques your interest.
