Six months and five days. That is the length between the death of music icon John Lennon and the release of his wife Yoko Ono’s fifth studio album, Season of Glass. Heralded as a heart-touching goodbye to her husband, yet hated at the same time as a cash grab aiming for the hearts of loyal Beatles and Lennon fans everywhere, Yoko’s goodbye to her beloved husband is an interesting case no matter your opinion on her, both as an artist and as a person.

Hitting the mark yet again, Julien Baker presents another batch of songs as somber and beautiful as the last.

You got it, Marcus! I stopped eating meat a couple years ago and have since continued to seek out the best breakfast sandwich alternatives. Dunkin' has some stellar plant-based ones. It sooths my soul.

These are definitely interesting picks and not ones I hear often! I’ll have to check these ones out! Is Buck Meek the guy from Big Thief alongside Adrianne Lenker?
