You can check out his Spotify playlist and insight behind his choices below!

On Lankershim by Foxygen
Rado and Sam France are such under-appreciated songwriters in my opinion. The arrangements and themes on all of the Foxygen records are so deep and the melodies are so perfectly executed. This is my favorite track off their latest record.

On The Nickel by Tom Waits
Affectionately referred to as “a wino’s lullaby”, and sung in his iconic Old-Golds-and-Whisky-Soaked voice. I’ve been digging deeper into his catalog lately but I always find my way back to On The Nickel (and the whole Heartattack and Vine album for that matter).

Doctor Brown by Fleetwood Mac
I once got into an argument with someone who tried to tell me that Fleetwood Mac wasn’t a blues band. Songs like this one never fail to make me want to pick up my guitar and jam along. Long live Peter Green.

Mother of Pearl by Roxy Music
I first heard this song when I was 12 or 13. My dad had it playing over the speakers at our house, and I couldn’t believe how different it was from everything else I was hearing at the time. The way the whole dynamic changes throughout the song was so intriguing to me. It blew my mind the way it transformed and became something totally different halfway through the track. I didn’t know you could do stuff like that back then. I’ve been getting back into Eno and Roxy Music lately and rediscovered this one.

Dead Flowers by The Rolling Stones
A country-western number from my favorite band of all time. Mick sings it with a southern drawl that’s almost sarcastic, but this song has been pure magic to me since the first time I heard it. It’s origin story turned me on to other early Americana artists like Gram Parsons and John Townes Van Zandt.

    There’s significantly a bundle to learn about this. I suppose you made certain attractive areas in features also.

    This blog is definitely rather handy since I’m at the moment creating an internet floral website – although I am only starting out therefore it’s really fairly small, nothing like this site. Can link to a few of the posts here as they are quite. Thanks much. Zoey Olsen
