someday maybe i'll be able to afford their actual product, the most beautiful mixer in the world
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
New denon receivers come with this origami tripod to hold the room correction mic at ear height and it looks like a fucking estes rocket. It’s absurd
happy christmas to me
ok!!! i am going to play more records this week!!!! it's rainy!!!!!
most people know "steal away," probably the most shameless "what a fool believes" ripoff ever to crack the top 10, but all of robbie dupree's 1980 self-titled debut is extremely yachty.
imagining the outtakes if this is the photo they chose
keep the fire, from 1979, is a little country-tinged; kenny pretty much always stayed firmly on the rock side of yacht rock.
three tracks are certified yacht, including the indelible "this is it"; the opening track "love has come of age" (one of my favorites) just missed the boat at a 47.25 on the yachstki scale.
seems like a good haul imo
one record i'm really excited about in this shipment is the 1979 self-titled solo debut from leah kunkel—i've been listening to it on spotify and it's unreal.
leah is mama cass's little sister; she married legendary soft-rock studio drummer russ kunkel (james taylor, carly simon, stevie nicks), who produced this record.
steve lukather is all over this, too. #yachtrock
i am here to post about expensive production, smooth grooves, and dark, sarcastic lyrics
