The Artist Essential Playlist: Sleater-Kinney

Ok, so remember when I promised a new playlist every Friday, complete with insightful analysis of 10 or so of the better or more interesting tracks? Maybe that was a bit ambitious, but never let it be said that I completely welch on a promise, as I give to you a playlist from one of the greatest bands of the past 20 years, Sleater-Kinney. It’s 25 tracks of pure, 100% fried gold, rocking goodness.

Frankly, these awesome ladies deserve a few thousand worlds of thoughtful analysis and praise (seriously, have you heard how awesome Little Babies is? And You’re No Rock n’ Roll Fun? And basically every song on this list?), but it’s pushing midnight and I’ve got an early class to teach tomorrow. A man needs his beauty sleep, you know.



Episode 38: The best of 2015

For our final podcast of 2015, we are pulling out all of the stops. That means another edition of Mundanity Podcast Live, recorded on the porch here at Casa JLo, with special guest appearances by Emily, Byron, Brandon, aka our kids, as well as Herbet the Hawk. We of course talk about the box office shattering phenomenom called Star Wars: The Force Awakens (no spoilers), as well as our favorite movies, music, and films of the year.

We wish you all the happiest of holiday seasons and a wonderful 2016. Thanks to all of you for listening, and we will see you next year!
