Emily Moldy

After he attended an Open Mic Night at Eddie’s Attic, Willy B. left an album by Emily Moldy at Korea. I’m really digging her sound. Sort of a White Lauryn Hill of sorts (I think her hair is dreaded). Her website describes her as Alternative/Folk Rock/Neo-Soul. Sounds good to me. It’s a great “organize your closet” kind of music, well really, that’s just what I’ve been up to mostly.

A Decade of Music

PASTE magazine recently released lists of the “best” (music, books, film, games) of the decade. As the decade rapidly comes to a close, I thought I would list my own…some are the same, but many are different.

Here’s my criteria:

1.  It had to be an album that I enjoyed in the truest form–not just one or two great songs.

2. It had to have been stuck in my “CD changer” for an extended period of time

3. I often go back to it, and I never get sick of it.

4. Something that I PERSONALLY really enjoy, not just something that I think I am supposed to like.
