Not your Spotify playlist. Not your Pandora stations.
What is the current album that you listened to in its entirety?
I realized that it’s been almost a year since I listened to an album. I used to listen to them all the time, back before the internet, but nowadays it’s usually only during summer vacation road trips when my phone’s not getting a signal and I pull from a case of cds. I upgraded my Pandora this fall, so now even without a signal I have several hours of music to listen to.
So my album listening days could be waning without a more deliberate intention.
This morning on the drive into work, I played for the first time the album “Forever Neverland” by M0. The artist was on “Later with Jules Holland” last year and her rough unvarnished vocals worked well with the song she sang on that show.
I was expecting an unusual album performance and I was not disappointed. Her voice is not for everyone, but there’s a lot of creative experiments on the album, with percussion and repetitive sounds by her background singers. A few f bombs on the later songs, so be forewarned if that’s a dealbreaker. “Sun in Our Eyes” is a good track to check out, which was performed with Diplo.
