Live Ledge #403: Under Consideration Pt. 1

It's that time of the year where my mind becomes overly-obsessed with my end of the year list of the best albums of the year. Seriously, I clearly have issues. But that's what I do all day. Besides listening to my most recent acquisitions, I'm constantly searching for things I may have missed.

I also begin a deep dive into my library. It's inevitable that over the course of the year there are records that get buried for various reasons. It could be that it came out at the same time as something better. Or it just didn't hit me as hard as it should have. Or it's simply that I can at times be a space cadet.

So that leads us to this week's Live Ledge. I've gone through my library and selected a ton of records that I need to give a further listening. They all have the potential of making that final list which will be unveiled in mid-December. After a couple of hours I ended up with enough material for not one but two shows. So tune in next week for another two hours of the same type of material.

This week I also set aside the format for a set that involves a show I saw a couple of weeks ago here in Sioux Falls. Total Drag Records hosted a phenomenal evening of music featuring Platinum Boys, Shannon Lay, and Mikal Cronin. I talk about that evening and play a few tracks from each of those great performers.

After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
