Adam Powell, Adams and Eves: Frank Lenz, Vacation. I cannot fully express the respect and admiration I have for his quaint, comely, candid symphonies.
Craig Oliver, Volar Records: Ive been keeping up with all the Chromatics stuff thats been released online the past few months—the yearning romance of late-night drives and the fog of love lost and sought after.
Maria Cochina, Vaginals: Probably the music Ive been hearing the most lately is world music mixed with Western influence: Thai girl groups of the 60s, funk from Ethiopia, disco from India, Dance Raja Dance, Italian new-wave, metal from Brazil.
Teenage Burritos: Prince is God. Kirsten [Gundel] likes Justin Timberlake because shes obsessed with revenge, so she cant help but love Cry Me a River and What Goes Around Comes Around. Rachel [McCarthy-Moya] was conceived at an X show in the 80s. Audacity is earnest rock n roll that Lucy [Wehrly] just cant help feeling good listening to. And we lost our virginities to The Stone Roses.
Mateo Silva, Kava Lounge: Im super late to the party, just recently discovered Broadcast. Streaming their whole albums online and Im sold.
Dan Faughnder, Sledding with Tigers: Frank Ocean, Channel Orange. Ugggggghhhhhhhhhhh, its sooooo gooooood. Shut up, Frank Ocean. Stop it.
