Getting Back To It!

Sorry for the interruption there, somehow in all of my years I still get knocked on my ass every time I move to a new apartment. I should be ready for all the hits, I've taken them all before. So I didn't find time to get any posts up for the past two weeks. The posts had to die so that my security deposit could live! But now that that's all over, I'm going to be getting back to the regular schedule, and even introduce some new stuff. I noticed that in the time that I've been keeping track of my listening habits, I tend to avoid the span of time between 1982 and 1993. It's like there's some kind of repelling force situated deeply within 1987, radiating outward half a decade in both directions. I have plenty of major favorites in that time span, like some of those wonderful Lena Platonos albums feel like they only could have happened within this time. But it feels like I need a push to dig a bit deeper. So I've begun asking people to give me recommendations within that time period, and I'm going to start sharing my thoughts about it on this page. I've been coming across some pretty cool stuff! I'd never listened to The Camberwell Now, a band that Charles Hayward had after This Heat disbanded. Absolutely something I needed to hear! So yeah, if there's any albums you want me to hear from 1982-1993, please send me an e-mail at itsatripp@gmail.com and I'll put it on the list. Feel free to give me multiple suggestions, but fair warning, I might just pick one. So if there's one that you absolutely want me to hear, just send me that one.

In more recent music news, there is so much stuff coming out today! I've got *twenty* different releases listed on the anticipation list that are all coming out today, and I'm sure there'll be even more that I'm missing. There's no way I'll have time for everything, but it's so exciting to see all the possibilities. One guarantee for sure, I am going to check out that new Ben Vida on Shelter Press as soon as possible. Always something special with that dude. I'll have thoughts to share in the weeks to come, but for now you can poke around on what's listed and see if anything interests you!
