First Heard in July 2009 - "Guess Your Having Fun"


I have been listening to the same music since college. New things here and there, but I rarely stray from my core constellation of faves - including various side, solo and other satellite projects. In my zeal to consume comedy, movies and comic books, the joys of discovering music fell by the wayside. My pop culture time was monopolized by the visual.

Inspired by a friend, I devised a little project that will spur me to actively pursue new jams (things I slept on, passed on arbitrarily, lost relics, up-and-comers, fresh bangers from old favorites, artifacts from a 2.2-gig Madlib torrent I just finished downloading): At the end of each month, I will post a mix of the best songs that I heard for the first time within those 30 or so days.

Won't you follow me on this journey? Thrill to the futuresounds? Mock me for being late to the party?
