  1. i’ll have to check out that portishead cd. i haven’t listened to them in years.

  2. Swing and a miss. I recognized none of these, artist or albums.

    Some will suggest this means being out of touch, but I think you are alright Mr. Beard.

  3. It’s ok, Mark. I actually think you would immensely enjoy some of this music! You let me know if you’d ever like a mix!

  4. Anathallo is amazing, great find and a great mix
