#1 - WHAT IS THE ONE ALBUM (OR EP OR SONG) THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE THE VERY NEXT MUSICAL THING THAT EVERYONE PRESSES PLAY ON THE NEXT TIME THEY FIND THEMSELVES THINKING “WHAT SHOULD I LISTEN TO NOW”?
Kikagaku Moyo “The House in the Tall Grass” I love this group. All of their albums are great but this one, in particular, caught me big time.
We are seeing them next month in Portland with another current fav, Khruangbin, very stoked.
#2 - WHAT IS THE ONE MOVIE OR TV SHOW THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE NEXT IN EVERYBODY’S NETFLIX QUEUE (OK, DOESN’T HAVE TO BE NETFLIX, WE’RE ALL INTERNET ADULTS HERE AND KNOW HOW TO FIND ANYTHING ONLINE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER)?
The new John & Yoko documentary “Above Us Only Sky” has some great footage from the “Imagine” tracking sessions.
It talks a lot about how Yoko’s language was at the center of the late Lennon stuff...worth the watch for sure.
#3. I (AND BY “I” I MEAN “THE PERSON THAT IS READING THIS”) AM GOING TO THE BOOK STORE (OK, PROBABLY AMAZON) TO FIND THE VERY NEXT BOOK THAT I WILL BE PUTTING SOME EXTREMELY VALUABLE ‘ME-TIME' ASIDE FOR. WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU GET, IF YOU WERE ME (AND, I SUPPOSE, YOU HADN’T ALREADY READ WHAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO SUGGEST)?
I am currently making my first pass through Barbara Kingsolver’s “Poisonwood Bible”.
Recommending such a classic is a little lame I know...oh well Oprah was right, it’s a must-read.
#4 - WHAT IS THE ONE WEBSITE (OR JUST ANY OLD INTERNET THING: APP, GIF, SERVICE, WHATEVER) THAT YOU WOULD GET REALLY DOWN IN THE DUMPS ABOUT IF IT WERE TO SUDDENLY GO AWAY?
My Morning Jacket - One Big Holiday (Late Night with Conan O'Brien) - Every now and then I’ll watch this and remember just how hard My Morning Jacket rocks.
Jim James and company were big influences for us and I love all their albums but there is definitely something special about “It still moves”.
#5 - AND FINALLY… PLEASE GIVE ONE COMPLETELY UNAIDED RECOMMENDATION THAT YOU THINK EVERYONE SHOULD START DOING / USING / WATCHING / EATING / THINKING / QUITING / ETC-ING TO MAKE THEIR LIVES A LITTLE BIT MORE BETTER AND/OR BEARABLE.
Let compassion steer the ship.
OK folks, there you have it. Things that Party Of The Sun thinks you should consider incorporating into your day/life. Before you log off and go let compassion take the wheel, make sure to follow Party Of The Sun on the Facebook / Instagram / Twitter and then also give ‘Song For You’ a listen below…
