I have a stack of CDs sitting behind me that I’m in the process of ripping. Two stacks, actually. Had to split it up cuz my daughters kept knocking over the one stack. Don’t ask how … they just did. I didn’t realize how much I had accumulated over the last couple of months until I started counting. Ha ha ha.
Skip ahead two weeks. No new stuff, other than a couple of iTunes purchases. While we were in Yellowstone, my wife had a hankering for They Might Be Flood CD, so I downloaded it for her. Yah–I’m that nice.
Anyway, so tonight is actually CD ripping night. It’s actually going to be CD-ripping weekend, but whatever.
I NEED NEW CD SHELVES IN THE WORST WAY.
Aaaaaand it’s Saturday now. I ripped through 11 CDs before
getting dragged away, kicking and screaming voluntarily watching our kids while my wife went to bunco. Here’s the stack:
- Rabbi – Bulla Ki Jaana
- Trembling Blue Stars – Exploring the Shadows
- Slick Shoes – Far From Nowhere
- Abigail Washburn – City of Refuge
- Sarah Jarosz – Follow Me Down
- Feral Phantasms – Polar Goldie Cats
- Kate York – Sadly Love
- Tam – Self-Titled
- Johnathan Rice – Further North
- Alex Wise – Front Porch
- Pedro the Lion – Winners Never Quit
The sounds are pretty divers, too. Feral Phantasms is all instrumental stuff. Great mood music. Sarah Jarosz has one of those voices that leaves me all melty-drippy-swoony. Slick Shoes is kind of Dream Theater-esque, but not as technical and pretty good straight-forward rock-out music. Rabbi … man. Great middle-eastern-sounding stuff. Overall, a great mix.
