Nice to Meet You (Nov Blog 10/30)

10 Nov


This is my music transport device today, as I am driving up to Richardson to play a gig with SusanG! and my car doesn’t have bluetooth and whatnot. Old fashioned CD burning it is…thank goodness my laptop can still burn a download, is all I’ll say.

It’s new T-Swift album day (congrats, Taylor!). I am excited for it and I listened to it one time through last night, and I will dive in on my drive today. From what I can tell, there’s still the lyrical smarts I long for, but with a LOOOOOT of lung-shaking electronic Swedish pop. I’m into it. What my Mustang lacks in music playing devices, it makes up for in bass boost.

I’ll admit, I got nostalgic a little bit. Taylor’s last album, 1989 (you may have heard of it), really made its place in my life over the last 3 years. I got it the night it came out, too, and have spent the subsequent 36 months taking it with me almost everywhere. It was one of my go-to’s for spinning on repeat when I needed to shut things out, hence it played on a loop whenever I absolutely could not sleep, it shut out the noise in the Dublin hostel where we roomed with 20 loud travelers, it’s spun on countless 12 hour drives to New Mexico, and I sang it at the top of my lungs in person with 80,000 other folks at the F1 track last fall. It’s IN THERE.

So while I am beyond psyched for seeing how reputation will seep into my life’s corners, it’s got a lot to live up to in my world.

End the sappy music reflection…it’s time to crank the bass.
