Some recent discoveries:
Mumrunner- Gentle Slopes
I’m not going to lie, I found this in a record shop and bought it purely on the artwork. I think this is...shoegaze? Based on the tags on Bandcamp. I’m not very good with subgenres. It was in the punk/garage bin but I don’t feel that’s accurate, either. Delightful b-side artwork.
Better Oblivion Community Center
I didn’t know this was Conor Oberst’s new thing but once his vocals came in I figured it out pretty quickly. Nice album to put on and chill out around the house to.
Lux Prima by Karen O and Danger Mouse
I was peeping at Broken Bells’ instagram and the second I saw Karen O and Danger Mouse made an album together, I was estactic. Seriously. And it doesn’t disappoint. Feels more mellow and personal than her Yeah Yeah Yeahs work but there’s a few moments where you hear those gritty YYYs vocals. Love it.
Slowly and randomly working my way through a “best of 2018” blog post I found on Amoeba Music (here: https://www.amoeba.com/blog/2018/12/pen-is-mightier-than-the-sword/my-top-50-albums-of-2018.html)
First stop: Could It Be Different, by The Spook School.
Liking this a lot...upbeat-sounding songs with pretty real lyrics.
Chorus 30 From Blues For The Hitchhiking Dead

Hello cool music people! I have wandered over here from weirder.earth (where my main account is, @nox) because recently I've been trying to broaden my music horizons and thought having a place to chronicle that would be neat. I don't know how to describe the music I like, because I don't tend to like genres as much as specific bands or individuals with a genre.
I look forward to sharing and finding new music with you all!
