I've been diggin' Michna and this album all week and last.
I forgot to bring my laptop to the station this week, so all of my sets were pulled off the new music shelves. I was okay with this, because it had been some time since I really delved into the new music. So many bands, so many I've never heard of....
When I became a DJ, I had two personal goals. The first was to discover new music. The second to challenge myself. I wanted to participate in the active practice of making decisions on the fly, trusting my gut, and allowing mistakes and regrets happen. Too often in my life I've become frostbit with anxiety. Sometimes I play bad music, but those risks have lead to falling in love with dozens of bands I might never have given a chance otherwise.
And now, on to those mistakes (I kid I kid).
