Sometimes I feel like a DJ.
One of my favorite things to do for friends is make them playlists (you can check ’em out here!) I also play lots of music when I’m working, which leads to people asking me who/what I like and I can never give them what I feel is a satisfactory answer…
What makes an artist stand out in my mind? The biggest thing for me is when someone puts out a consistently good album, not just a one-off hit. Listed are my favorite albums after the jump, in the same order as the tiles above.
