I've been obsessed with Spotify lately...I went through the million lists of all the songs on all my mixed tapes from college and after (80s! 90s!) and added all the best stuff. Since then I've been haunting the Discover and Browse functions and the app We Are Hunted which finds trending music mentioned on social media. Lots of good stuff out there.

Still, several artists that I love aren't on Spotify or only have limited selections of their work available. I'm looking at you, Peter Gabriel. Where is General Public? And Grace Pool? And Loey Nelson?? And why isn't Vienna Teng's Warm Strangers available?? And sadly, lots of the local bands we used to listen to and go see don't have any presence online at all...disbanded years ago. Still, it's incredible how much music is out there and how much of it is excellent.

For the last almost 3 years, while sitting in the loathed open landscape at work, I wasn't able to play music...oh, I could have played it if I was willing to wear headphones and then take them off and put them on and take them off every few minutes because of people asking me questions, but I tried that and it was a pain, and I finally gave up. Plus those padded noise-cancelling headphones we got for work made my ears sweat. Ew. So, no music.

But after we moved into our 3-person office a couple of months ago, and one of my roommates was gone for a week, I started playing my Spotify list very softly at my desk. And the other one of my roommates said, "O! How nice! Turn it up, please" and the first one said, after she returned, that it didn't bother her because she DOES use headphones, so I've been able to have my music playing (very softly but just loud enough) all day long and it makes me SO HAPPY.

Artists I've Recently Discovered: Dala, Emm Gryner, Hafdis Huld, Galia Arad, Anette Olzon, Oh Laura

Tomorrow is payday and Friday and how happy am I about both of those things? SO HAPPY.

What have you been listening to lately?
