I've managed to make that particular obsession a key player in pretty much every aspect of my life. It's even a big part of my job, especially now that we're working with more & more musicians, music-related projects, and events (like the monthly Full Card Friday - happening this Friday February 22nd. Get on guestlist, & I'll see ya there!).
Since I'm properly learning guitar these days & getting back into writing songs and possibly creating my own "thing", I pay even more attention to the music I listen to. I absorb it, soak it in. The subtle things like a strum pattern, quiet harmonies, or new, creative use of an instrument just blows my mind. The obsession has absolutely worsened. And I'm ok with that.
Though sometimes finding the right people to come along to live shows is like pulling teeth, I've promised myself that this year I'll go to as many concerts as possible. See big acts, small acts, my old favourites, and new bands I've never heard of. At the moment I'm searching high & low for tickets to the sold-out Hayden show at the Dakota tomorrow night (which is proving impossible). It just reminds me that I've already let too many good ones go by without seeing them, and that is just not ok.
But my long-winded ramble aside, there is a point to this post. Other than to (yet again) point out that "I dig music" (and yes, I am a Golden God), I'm always on the hunt for great new tunes. So I turn to you guys.
What are you listening to? Who should I be adding to my daily playlists?
Share some new music with your ol' pal Kris.
(p.s - for any of you Nine Inch Nails fans - this is hilarious.)
