Brain Drain

All the debris that clogs up the drain of my mind

Misc Song of the Day

Warpaint - Drive

The new Warpaint album is perfect to just bliss out to. Mellow and intimate, expertly played, it’s one of my favourite albums of the year. Drive is one of those great downbeat moments near the end of the album. Stella Mozgawa and Jenny Lee Lindberg are on of the greatest rhythm sections going today.

Misc Song of the Day

Talk Talk - The Rainbow

Released in 1988 and it still sounds fresh and relevant today. The first track on Spirit of Eden, the birth of post-rock, an undeniably seminal release, so influential. This or the Wizard by Black Sabbath are a toss-up for my favourite use of harmonica ever.

Lydia Loveless - NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Somewhere Else is a great album and this is a great quick set (featuring her Record Store Day exclusive single, Mile High).

Jolie Holland - Out on the Wine Dark Sea

The new Jolie Holland album is one of my favourite albums of the year, thanks in part to tracks like this.

My Brightest Diamond - Dreaming Awake

Shara Worden could literally sing anything and I’d love it, dat voice!

—Skin Song - Bat For Lashes

Bat For Lashes - Skin Song
Great atmosphere to this new track.
