New Episode of Old Dad's Records

After a bit of a hiatus the Old Dad's Records podcast is back for episode 24. This time around I went with music that hits me right in the feels. The song this week is The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony," which I blogged about awhile back. After that I delve into a Carpenters compilation record. Their music more than any other transports me back to my early childhood. I also tend to listen to it in times like now when my spirit is feeling a little tired. I end the episode by raving about the band Hooray for the Riff Raff, which have a unique and engaging sound.

Recording the podcast made me realize how my mental state has probably not been too great recently. This time of year usually makes me miserable, but the fact that I had been deriving less pleasure from music and talking about it was a sign of a deeper issue. Hopefully you all are weathering the doldrums of late winter well.
