You know the drill by now. HONORABLE MENTION: Number 11 through 15 on my top ten list, in alphabetical order. These albums are given the same full review as the top ten (coming soon!). Album links will open in Spotify. If you don’t have it yet, go get it! WORTH NOTICING: A list of albums worth checking […]


If you’re reading this post it means one of two things, either the Mayan prophecies were flat out wrong, or they simply didn’t anticipate that my contribution to CKTK’s Top 10-A-Palooza would save all mankind. As with any near-death experience, 2012 has moved us to reflect. We gaze deeply into ourselves… and by that I […]


2010 in music was marked by a few things: *It was the year that Americans finally learned how to party like the rest of the world. That’s right… trance/dance beats and riffs have taken over pop music charts and every self-respecting party animal and nightlife layperson is better off because of it. Hell, even Enrique […]


Another year, another top 10 list. The biggest change in the way I experienced music since 2009 is the death of lala.com. Fortunately, I was still able to find places online to listen to most albums that I was curious about. The public library has also become my friend. Unfortunately, that means I won’t have […]

He will continue these frisky frollicks into the future, but for now, you’re stuck with Tk’s Sasquatch Squawkin’. This squawk session is extra special considering that I will be out of commission for a while after this post […]


As the resident realist (ooh, band name) I will state rather matter-of-factly that the new decade in music is off to a thoroughly mediocre start. CK disagrees and you can read about it here. Need evidence? Well, for starters, Samantha Fox has yet to release an album. If you’ve been following this blog, you already […]


Here it is, folks: My report on the first quarter of 2010. It’s been a solid year so far. This list is presented with minimal commentary; just know that you’ll see many of these records in my “Best of 2010” post nine months from now. But you don’t have to take my word for it… […]


Three Songs

15Jan10

If you could only listen to 3 songs during this upcoming week, no more and no less, which ones would you choose? They might be new, might be old, may be long or may be short (ellipse) I have, by choice, only listened to 3 songs this past week during iPod-enhanced strolls around Los Angeles. […]
