“I once went down to Neil’s ranch and he rowed me out into the middle of the lake—putting my life in his hands once again. He waved at someone invisible and music started to play, in the countryside. I realized Neil had his house wired as the left speaker, and his barn wired as the right speaker. And Elliot Mazer, his engineer, said ‘How is it?’ And Neil shouted back … ‘More Barn!’” —Graham Nash, talking about how Neil Young first played him Harvest.

Listening to NPR Music Radio streams is making my very boring workload almost enjoyable. Psychedelic cumbia anyone? Oregonians with excellent beards and fierce banjo skills?
Heavy Rotation - NPR’s songs of 2012 played back to back is a winner.

Meet Randall Poster. He’s the guy who picks out the music in all of Wes Anderson’s films, including his latest Moonrise Kingdom (pictured above.) This is how Poster’s job works.

Leonard Cohen - Old Ideas
Exclusive album stream on The Guardian website. Click on Leonard to listen. 
The voice just gets better with age and the instrumentation is more interesting to my ear than some previous albums (though glad to see he hasn’t done away with his unapologetically eighties backing singers). Sounding very Dylan on some songs (see ‘Darkness’)… sounding gruffer, wiser and funnier on everything.
