There's always been a bit of gun jumping when it comes to the changing of the seasons, be it at the hands of supermarkets or the shifting tide of Instagram. While we've had a significant cold snap this weekend in Bloomington (a high of 65!), it's still not quite fall. But it's not quite summer either.
The in-between is kind of a great place to be if you think about it. You get the benefit of reminiscing on/savoring the last bits of the season going out - plus the anticipation of the one to come. So while we're caught straddling warmer, iced-coffee-filled days and cool, crisp ones I figured it could use a soundtrack.
Seeing as I'm already steeped in the act of recommendations, here are a few things you should check out.
1. 'The First Collection of Criticism By A Living Female Rock Critic' by Jessica Hopper: Whip-smart criticism spanning decades of a fascinating career, well life really, as a music obsessee.
2. Q-Tip interviews D'Angelo, they call André 3000 for Apple's Beats1
3. Mystery Show : A podcast about seemingly mundane mysteries that's just fascinating.
