Pause & Play Today: Sept. 27, 2022

I’ve been on vacation for the past week, visiting family and friends in my native Columbus, OH. I purposely put updating the site on the back burner because I knew I wouldn’t be able to give it my full attention.

Yesterday, as we started driving back home to St. Petersburg, FL, it became apparent that Hurricane Ian had other plans for us. We detoured to Birmingham, AL, to stay with relatives and wait it out till the coast is clear.

Now I’ve finally gotten a chance to sit down and start updating … which makes me happy to no end.

I’m going to do something different here, though: I’ve got hundreds of emails to catch up on. I will go through them and will pick and choose the best ones to include in this post. This will be “real time” updating … I will type something, save it and you will see each update. As you’ll see, I’m all over the place. 🙂

Join me.

 NEW SONGS  (click on title to stream)

No Appetite, Lo-Fi Hero

(Lo-Fi Hero is the brainchild of Erik Alcock and John “P*nut” Harrison in their studio in Berlin. The duo make music that is old and new, loop-based and performed. Previously, Harrison has worked as a producer for Amy Winehouse and Alcock has written many songs for Eminem.)

Avocado, Fardust

(The Italian duo says: “The track was originally born as a demo for the “Yama” EP, released in 2018, but didn’t fit completely well with the direction of that project, so, since we really liked it, we decided to publish it as a single afterwards.)

Distant Place, YUNGMORPHEUS | See here

(Produced by keyboardist, producer and composer Joe Armon-Jones of Ezra Collective.)

Melancholia, VENNA
If It Kills Me, Zach Day | See here


Joe Bussard (record collector who preserved early American blues and more)
