Gregg Popovich on Trump and Race in America:


Regarding music this month – I wasn’t in much of a digging mood, or rather I just didn’t have time to dig. I was mostly listening to live Ron Carter performances during the work days, and some Blue Six and early Miguel Migs mixes on YouTube as well (it’s so annoying when ads play in the middle of long sets! please no ad interruptions!). Ok so for this month, I thought of a genre I really haven’t shared much with you, but I went through a HUGE phase with from around 2007 through 2011 or so. Indie electronica! I was avidly scouring Hype Machine and a blog called Et Musique Pour Tous (the tagline was “space age bachelor pad music” lmao), and was obsessed with groups like Passion Pit, Phoenix, Classixx, Friendly Fires, Ladyhawke, O’Spada, Dragonette, Datasette, Aeroplane, Aanorak, and on and on and on. I dug through one of my old playlists of this kind of thing and put a list together of some of my old favorites – this selection is pretty laid back and chilled out (you know how I DO). Listening to these tracks brings back SO many happy memories for me! I hope you enjoy ❤
