    I started getting into Francis Poulenc, most notably his Sextet for wind quintet + piano, and Trio for oboe + bassoon + piano.

    As for non-classical stuff, I've been digging on Griselda's new record W.W.C.D and Death Atlas by Cattle Decapitation.

    In an effort to undo some of the damage I did to myself in high school (lots of anti-rap attitude that's been falling off), I've started listening to Wu-Tang Clan. I'm currently listening to Enter the Wu-Tang, and am digging it so far. It feels weird to say I'm "getting into" music that's been popular about as long as I've been alive.

    Dom & Roland's "Last Refuge of a Scoundrel" is something I'm putting on a lot. Solid DnB album, got some old school vibes around a very modern sound. It turns out he did that album in Reaper, according to an "in the studio" thing he did on YouTube. I also put on some Ed Rush & Optical and Goldie, but don't have much to say about them, it was only a few minutes each, but they're solid producers as well.

    I’ve been listening to a lot of new drum and bass, particularly artists like THUGWIDOW and Bakground. Also a lot of Babymetal as usual for me.

      I honestly thought I would have grown tired of Babymetal by now... but for some reason I haven't yet and maybe never will. I suspect it's because, despite the gimmick, there actually is tons of genuine talent involved [2].

      p.s. Metal Galaxy was great.

    The same thing I listen to every week: Crap From the Past. It bills itself as a graduate level course in pop music. It’s basically an interesting dive into pop music from the 70s and 80s. The host, Ron Gerber, likes to play obscure songs from well known and also obscure artists. He often has commentary about who played on or produced a particular song or album. Fascinating stuff if you like music from those decades. He does sometimes play newer stuff particularly on the New Years show and will often link newer stuff to older stuff.

    Pitchfork's 50 Best Albums of 2019 list just came out and I've been working my way up the list (from 1 to 50). So far I've found a few that I liked and skipped a bunch of others. I'm not much of a rap person but this year it seems I'm enjoying rap albums best.

    Lapsed back into Curve this week, mostly because they're good to draw to and I've got a lot of commissions this week.

      Any in particular? Personally, I'm a fan of the Pentatonix Christmas covers. E.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-1QhRXGjqg&list=PLU_mcNMHvxikBj06dSE61md5vRwERJlwX&index=3

    I've actually been listening to My Chemical Romance. I've never listened to them before, and since their reunion my friend sat me down and made me listen to Danger Days, which is incredible. It's a bit different from their other stuff, and is a story with a Mad Max style theme.

    Work Music

    • Hongkong Remastered by Monolake - My all-time favorite work music. Just this side of white noise, barebones rhythms that give me a lift but don’t steal my focus. Good for deep thinking.
    • A Minor Thought by Moomin - A bit more going on, small phrases that loop and gradually shift. Good day-to-day work music.
    • Cohesion by Anchorsong - a lot more going on, blurs the line between rhythm and melody. Good for “I know what I need to do, I just have to knuckle down and do it”.

    Listen Music

    • Milestones by Miles Davis - a perennial favorite. Late-50s bop is my happy place.
    • Marquee Moon by Television - “punk rock for the jazz set”. My go-to driving down the highway album.
