This is now officially the old site. I have relocated to here. Update your bookmarks etc.
Thank you for your time.
By far the least noteworthy aspect of this unusual year is that it threw my normal listening habits out the window. Working from home has had its advantages, but investigating new music wasn't one of them. Thus, there are probably things that aren't on this list simply because I haven't got to them yet. Nevertheless, here are eleven (not ten, because while literally nobody needs another list containing "Rough and Rowdy
Ways", there was no possibility of it not being here) long-playing records that caught my ear. Maybe one of them will also catch yours. If it hasn't already.

"In and Out of the Light", by The Apartments."Healing is a Miracle", by Julianna Barwick.

That's all I have for you. I have a feeling that this blog might get back to something more frequent than annual updates before too long. In the meantime, hang in there. You never know -- things might even get better.
