hmm, what's the worst song Michael McDonald sung backup vocals on

amp replaced, wasn’t too bad, just a cable for the speaker itself and a cable for the power LED to contend with, so sub’s back in action. The other piece of kit is the ifi zen DAC for tidal and my own library

Why has it been six years since the last neon Indian album........

replacement internal amp for the sub arrives saturday, based on forums it seems like this is not an uncommon issue with this sub model which is ughhhhh because it's the one i want, so hopefully the new amps don't have the problem.

also ordered a dac because why not

Edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros is under E because that’s a fake name and just a band; Elton John is under J because he legally changed his name to that. This is a glimpse inside the twisted world of Alex alphabetizing his records

i can't use any of those spotify listening habits visualisers because my actual music library is hosted elsewhere, and i only use spotify to create playlists with names like "sexual harassment at the company away-day" and "horny madrigals for maundy thursday"

oscar paterson never recorded a bum note in his whole life

If you have a boomer parent that mostly/only listened to classic rock, do you remember a modern pop song or artist that the parent suddenly and inexplicably got into? I feel that this must be a widespread experience

The year is 2004. Despite my father (age 44) primarily listening to a combination of Steve Winwood, Level 42, Steely Dan, and Steppenwolf pretty much exclusively, he keeps talking about Gwen Stefani. He plays Hollaback Girl on the stereo. He buys Love Angel Music Baby on the Rhapsody music store.

Anyway whatever this phenomenon is, I am going through it with myself and Dua Lipa
