British Invasion 25

Ah yes, the United Kingdom. The British Invasion 25 originated from a themed event put together by Sari and Kayli, where we indulged in a smorgasbord of British cuisine and shared lists of our favorite records from the ongoing British Invasion. Rather than limiting the list to the timespan of the first British Invasion (put … Continue reading British Invasion 25

Scott Walker

The man with the golden voice I was still reeling from Mark Hollis's untimely passing a month earlier when news of Scott Walker's death began to filter through in March. The sense of loss is always compounded in such cases, and with Dick Dale, Ranking Roger and Keith Flint gone too — and in such close temporal … Continue reading Scott Walker

Motion 003

Motion 003: It's The Terminal Junction The latest Motion playlist is actually an adaptation of the original Motion mix from a few years ago. I'd forgotten all about the O.G. outing before stumbling upon it about a week ago, and the general mood has fit the current drift of the Heights perfectly. All I did … Continue reading Motion 003

25 From 97

A couple weeks ago, Sari, Kayli and I traded lists of our favorite records from 1997 in a New Years Eve extravaganza. Why 1997, you ask? 1997 was without a doubt my favorite year in memory, and its music more than lived up to the times. If the era's clash of dancefloor futurism, breakbeat science, … Continue reading 25 From 97

Nothing’s Changed

Tricky live @ the Music Box 5/17/2018 After twenty years as a massive fan of the man's music, I finally caught Tricky live last Thursday at the Music Box. After work, I cruised down Harbor Drive, past Lindbergh Field and the Embarcadero toward the San Diego Harbor. I stopped off at the Fish Market to … Continue reading Nothing’s Changed

The Parallax 200

The next 100 records It's been three years and three days since I first posted the original Parallax 100, and I've been wanting to delve into the next 100 for some time now. Over the course of the intervening years, I've worked up a little list that I've tweaked here and there but have somehow … Continue reading The Parallax 200

Only Happy When It Rains

El Cajon Blvd. At Night A mix for a today. Soul-baring comments may be forthcoming... then again, maybe not. For the moment, I let the music speak for itself. LISTEN NOW Rowland S. Howard Dead Radio Reliant Kate Bush How To Be Invisible EMI Duran Duran Save A Prayer EMI Patti Smith Group Dancing Barefoot … Continue reading Only Happy When It Rains

RAG015: Winter 2015

Radio AG Episode 015: Winter 2015 It's been five years since I last did a Radio AG mixtape. This one is from a couple weeks back, and has been making the rounds in the Heights ever since. I thought I'd offer it up here just like old times. The idea is an aural representation of … Continue reading RAG015: Winter 2015

The Parallax 100

This all germinated from an exchange between Sari (my wife), Andrew (my brother) and myself in which we each compiled our top 100 records of all time and then had a little party to review the lists while listening to bits of the records in them. It was a great excuse to talk music and … Continue reading The Parallax 100
