Wednesday (not so) Morning Playlist

Displaying IMG_3094.JPGDisplaying IMG_3094.JPGSo, things have finally started quieting down in the Reference Department at the DFL, now that school has been out for a week. And I can finally post a playlist now that things have quieted down. What's new in the world? Goth Taylor Swift has been replaced with my personal favorite Classic Swift version. President Obama is hilarious. I'm re-reading all of The Raven Cycle on audiobook. House Democrats hosted their own Occupy-esque sit-in. American Hogwarts is in Western Massachusetts. And I got engaged! So much in just a few short weeks.

Wednesday Morning Playlist

I had a birthday this weekend! And as a present to myself, I bought one of my favorite albums on vinyl to add to the small (but growing) collection of records that my boyfriend and I have been cultivating. Gregory Alan Isakov is an amazing performer (if you have the chance to see him live, don't miss it) and a very nuanced storyteller. His songs are layered and evocative, pulling from themes of travel and journey and growth.

He is about to release a new album at the end of next week (June 10, 2016) that is a collection of his songs arranged with the accompaniment of the Colorado Symphony. He has performed with the Seattle Symphony in the past and due to the fulfilling nature of that endeavor has set out on a national tour with accompaniment from varying regional orchestras. This is so cool.
