A group of us were discussing and dissecting and coming to grips with the saddest song we’ve heard. It was tough getting to the heart of the matter as what was sad then isn’t sad now. One either stays in a relationship or moves on with memories of what was then, and what is now, [...]

Listening to a new recording by uber producer Emile Haynie featuring Andrew Wyatt and Brian Wilson, two things came to mind: How everything old is new again, that Brian Wilson is somewhere on the multi-tracked vocals of the track and how the Beach Boy is, suddenly, the musical plat de jour what with that star-studded [...]

(Source: Tumblr) I was speaking with a friend the other day about musical appreciation- not in any academic way, but in ways in which many of us first heard a piece of music and for whatever inexplicable reason, it struck a chord with you.
