Happy Days of Yore – January 30, 2018

| Radio

happy time

Taking a break from recent efforts to dredge up music that sounds new, we decided to revisit 2014 instead, on the strength of a mystery homeburn we found recently in a box and enjoyed.  We’re pretty sure we made this CD but we don’t remember doing it.  No mind!  What was more interesting was how very cheerful the music seemed to be.  Not that 2014 was a perfect year mind you.  While Pharell Williams was feeling happy, black residents of Ferguson, MO, for instance, were anything but…  Still, intriguing to note the difference between our blithe mood then vs. our relative malaise today.

Bubble Wrap this week featured happy music from 2019 too, ephemeral pop from here and there.  Augmenting that, we continued the Troy Meadows and La Souterraine threads another week with music from each.  Oh, and Pilotcan was a nice discovery — always fun to find a new Scottish band…

Enjoy yourself and the days of yore…
