Stopping for a bit

This has been wicked fun, but as I have mentioned recently I am drifting. I feel my musical center shifting to some new uncharted territory and don't really feel the confidence or certainty to expound on what has moved me recently.

Something that I was grateful to find online recently, (in its entirety) ,is an old album by Dennis Wilson entitled Pacific Ocean Blue.

Dennis was Brian Wilson's brother and the drummer for the Beach Boys. He hung out with Charles Manson and certainly had his own distinctive take on music.


I had heard of it a lot in odd circles and a dedicated search yielded some amazing results

Dennis Wilson - Thoughts of You

so melodic, soulful, and actually shoegazey

Thanks for the concern tox. I will continue to do the occasional post where I just can't hold back on some great new thing, but the attempt to be consistent will be leaving.

Still enjoying your blog though :)

I've thoroughly enjoyed your blogging and look forward to your infrequent returns. Best of luck and thanks.

Wow, cool set lists matt. I just checked out your site and the combination of music you are playing on your show looks great. It kind of reflects how all over the place the stuff I have been feeling is leading me (although it would include some soundtrack music if it were me). I can't keep away from that stuff these days.
