Thoughts On Music: “Simple Song of Freedom” by Tim Hardin, Woodstock 50

This past Saturday I woke up late; I spent Friday night designing my mini-podcast logo and revamping my website. I put on a Woodstock playlist to internally and personally celebrate the 50th anniversary on the weekend it occurred. Throughout my existence, I've felt so close to Woodstock, even though I've never experienced it. The closest … Continue reading Thoughts On Music: “Simple Song of Freedom” by Tim Hardin, Woodstock 50

Album of the Day: Back To Black by Amy Winehouse (10-Year Anniversary)

But a couple weeks … Continue reading Album of the Day: Bat Out Of Hell by Meat Loaf

Album of the Day: Coupled With by The Wildhearts

Coupled With is a compilation album released by The Wildhearts on Gut Records,Ā shortly after theirĀ comeback, circa 2001-2003. It is comprised of "rarities" -Ā B-sides from the singles they released during that time period, and it is 20 songs longĀ (IĀ have an affinity for long albums). That's what she said. I first discovered this band when they opened … Continue reading Album of the Day: Coupled With by The Wildhearts
