. . .is discovering music I already own for the first time. I have this thing where I’ll buy like five new CDs at once, and then I’ll get into up to three of them and the other two sort of sit. Sometimes for months. And then one day, something will cue me and I’ll start listening and think “wow, this is amazing.”
Current case in point, The Books, Lost and Safe. Earlier this week, I was reading one of my students’ papers on a looper pedal and he included a CD demonstrating it. I thought “gee, when he hits the reverse function, it sounds like The Books.” That made me want to hear the books, and lo and behold, here’s the new album to which I haven’t really listened. It’s awesome.
