Music

In my heart of hearts ...

“Heart” by Sarah-Jane Lynagh
“Heart” by Sarah-Jane Lynagh

I believe in love. Maybe not the love-is-all-you-need schtick, but, whether it’s romantic or platonic love, the humans (and animals) in our lives make a sometimes harsh and inhospitable world infinitely more bearable. Even when our hearts inevitably get broken, these patched-together metaphorical organs often function more wisely and, sometimes, even more fully. Love is the drug andeven with its troublesome side effectsit comes highly recommended. Meditate on the many-splendored thing while listening to my Valentine’s Day playlist, Heart Set, below. Heart-hug.

Xmas music that doesn't suck

At this point in the season, we've all been subjected to a smorgasbord of Xmas muzak that, frankly, is way lame. Gift yourself with holiday sounds that rule. Right now, I'm listening to DJ Mello and DJ Tahnee's holiday-themed Afternoon Freeform on KUNM. These ladies know Christmas music. Listen at kunm.org or tune your dial to 89.9 FM. If you stumble on this blog in an eggnog haze after 4 p.m., access it via KUNM's two-week archive.

If you're in the mood for obscuro Xmas tunes, check out my Jingle and Jingle playlist from last year. It features boss tracks by The Dirtbombs, Mono Men, Nadroj & The Wolrats, The Honeymoon Killers, Thee Headcoatees, James White, Alien Sex Fiend, Culturcide, The Magnetic Fields, Maddox Brothers and Rose, Johnny Cash, Bumble Bee Slim, Jimmy Witherspoon, Victoria Spivey and Vera Ward Hall. Stream it below. Happy listening, y'all!
