If you haven't heard of the Orange Twin Field Works or Korena Pang then you haven't reached my level of obsession.

Long ago I met Jeff Mangum in NYC, he was super awkward but so was I. That was probably the only time I ever felt 'starstruck' in my life. One night during his holiday surprise tour Julian Koster stayed at my house in Vermont. He might be the nicest guy on the planet, but I'm not sure if he is from this planet.

One time at a NMH show Mangum waived his pointer finger at me ... read more

Been trying this album on and off for 2.5 years now 'cause it never REALLY clicked with me but I kept feeling like I was missing out on something by not getting more into it... not sure what hell I was thinking before, this thing is pretty great. I like the arrangements A LOT and Sturgill's twang is pleasant enough for me.

When I first heard In Bloom I was not a fan, but I've grown to enjoy it quite a bit (and its a nice reminder of what a great songwriter Kurt Cobain was). Luckily this album ... read more

Sounding like a cowboy from the late 19th century who's been smoking cigarettes since his youth. With these 11 songs it's easy to see why some have been raving about this 23 yo for awhile now...

Another solid release from Woodsist, although this is really from Kevin Morby's Mare offshoot. Produced by Kyle Thomas (King Tuff) and Morby...

Country/folk sound, lazy day vibes. Great vocals from Anna St. Louis with just enough arrangement variety to keep things interesting. So much potential, great debut.

Real Talk... If I don't like something, I don't score it. I tend to only listen to things that I think will be in my general wheelhouse. I use this scoring system more as a way to put my favorite things in order, rather placing a score on how good/quality I think something is. I've been obsessed with music since I was a kid, and wish I would have started on this site years ago but what you gonna do. Oh, and I only score albums, no singles.

I figured the more, the better (no need to page through). Think it's something you could get used to?

Unfortunately going through some brain related problems the last 5 weeks or so. Hoping to be back eventually but very hard to plan.
Anything in particular you want me to score? haha

Ween - The Mollusk is also amazingly great but it seems like everyone has heard it at this point.

Always listening and tinkering with scores. Basically a curated list of music.
