Tie Me to the Listenin’ Post: 4/18 – 4/25

(all apologies to the Allman Brothers)

In an attempt to increase the content of this blog (and perhaps gain a reader or two in the process), I’m embarking on a new, weekly feature with this, the inaugural installment of Tie Me to the Listenin’ Post. It’s pretty simple: all this feature will entail will be, y’know, a post chock-full of what I’ve listened to in the past week (including live shows), updated daily (for as long as I don’t get bored with it). Eventually, I may even get around to asking guests what they’ve been listening to, since that would be far more interesting. Anyway, let’s get to it. I’m starting the week on a Saturday — this past Saturday, April 18th (aka Record Store Day) to be exact. Given that I work at a record store, see if you can spot which selections were either picked by my fellow employees and/or required in-store listening!
