I recently created a Soundcloud account for my songs, check it out!
This post is dedicated to the records that got away, ones I saw and did not buy due to being foolish and miserly. Life is short, and in many cases there are a finite amount of records left, so you should not feel conflicted about spending the money. Even if it is difficult to justify. […]
The Rasputin Music in Haight-Ashbury has closed, leaving me with only Amoeba records in that neighborhood. I found at least 75% of my collection at Rasputin, what a shame.
I want to share the best thing in electronic music right now, Australia’s Partiboi69. I don’t know much about him, but none of that really matters anyway. These sets are about an hour long, show what’s great about electronic music and are a true inspiration to us all.
This week, I took a trip to Rasputin to specifically pick up one album, A Taste of Honey’s self-titled debut. I had passed on it a week earlier or $4, and I really like the group, and I regretted not buying it because it seemed like $4 was too much to spend. I’ve since come […]
Steely Dan is one of the reasons that I got into records, and after buying these records I want to buy a better record player to get as much out of these records as I can. The quality can’t compare to perfect digital versions, but with this band and its obsessive attention to the sound […]

Sometimes you have to pay the piper, and if you want a record you’ll need to buy it new. If I want to play some of my favorite albums or introduce someone to an artist I appreciate, I would like to have these records. I visited Green Apple Books in the Richmond with a gift […]
I visited the Lower Haight to check out Jack’s Record Cellar, a record store only open one day a week with a great selection of 45s, 78s and old audio equipment. The place is cramped, some sections have only one entry and exit point and the records are priced to sell. I was able to […]
