I like to listen to entire records from start to finish. In this day and age of streaming, I think that makes me something of an oddity. Maybe it's just a habit I can't shake from the days when I was collecting albums on CDs, but I think a record that is thoughtfully arranged to provide a memorable listening experience from beginning to end is artistic magic. (This is why I'm especially partial to concept albums.)

Anyway, all of that ☝🏼 to say that I only share songs from records I enjoy and that I would recommend as a whole. If you like something I share, do yourself a favor: check out the album!

So here's a bonus share tonight from an EP that is absolutely worth every second of its 22 minutes of play time:

"Keys to the Forest" from Transformation by Mob Bounce


I, too, regularly listen to albums as a whole. There is a place for singles, sure, and I do have some favorite tracks, but an album tells so much more.

I still think we're the exception these days, but I'm happy to find someone who agrees!

Have any favorite records? Like, something so good as a whole that it hurts your heart a little if someone only ever listens to one song from the album? 😅
One that comes to mind for me is Typhoon's White Lighter. That record is about as close to perfect as any human project can get, IMO

Take note, readers: I understand that art is subjective. What's perfect for me won't be perfect for everyone.

I love asking the question of favorites but hate answering 😆

So, here's what's on my mind right now:

Emiliana Torrini - "Me and Armini"

The climax of the album is just amazing and it falls so beautifully into a resolution.

"Me and Armini" is probably her most cohesive album, which is why I pick it out from the rest, but I also must recommend "Love in the Time of Science" and "Fisherman's Woman".

Oh, and I'll be listening to "White Lighter" during my coding exercises tonight 😄
yep, Me and Armini is good stuffs 👍🏼
Thanks again for the rec!
And your rec is great as well. I’ve never heard of Typhoon before but, man, what a powerful album. I’ll have to give this one several listen-throughs.
