Yesterday evening started out with a road-trip to see Kenmore girls field hockey take on Barker. Then to Mohawk Place to see Hop Along. Long day, but fun!

Seeing Wilco for the third time triggered a listening binge. Picked up the deluxe re-issue of Being There today at Revolver Records.

I went a little crazy with the 1992 playlist in preparation for the next issue of One Last Wish. So many good albums came out that year. 91 songs so far and I don’t think I got everything!

Added a few new slabs of vinyl to my collection:

  • Soft Sounds from Another Planet by Japanese Breakfast (Listen)
  • Songs of Praise by Shame (Listen)
  • Brutalism by IDLES (Listen)
  • Fleet Foxes by Fleet Foxes (Listen)

Most important, my daughter bought her first record: the Prom Queen EP (Listen) from Beach Bunny. Someone will be getting a turntable for the birthday in May. 🙂

File this in the “surprised I didn’t pay more attention to this band” category: Small Brown Bike

So good.

I love this idea from [Merlin Mann and Do By Friday](https://twitter.com/hotdogsladies/status/1323316163237961729): the “Follow Your Nose” playlist…

1. Pick a song you love and start a playlist
2. Go to the artist’s page and view the Related Artists/Fans Also Like section — then pick a group you aren’t familiar with…
3. Go to their page and start listening to their top songs & add one you like to your playlist.
4. Repeat 2 and 3 from that artist page, building out your playlist until you are bored or hit an artist where you can’t do #2.

Almost like a choose your own music musical adventure. So much fun!

Here’s my first attempt:

If you are a sucker for 90s-influenced indie rock like Beach Bunny, Soccer Mommy, Snail Mail, and Hatchie you will love this.
