Hey y’all, Aaron here. As you may recall, I’ve been toying with the idea of brevity on the KMA for a while now, so I am taking the turning of the new year as a great opportunity to try it. Each record will receive distilled thoughts in a (hopefully) concise paragraph.
It’ll often seem alphabetical, as I go through my iTunes, but that’ll get broken up as I also hear new additions, and jump formats from MP3-CD-LP-cassette, and go back to listening to CDs in the Office (our Subaru) with my daughter when school fires back up on the 5th.
In the case of an artist having more than one album in a post, I will listen objectively and comment on each’s own merits while avoiding undue comparison.
I may still break out the longer posts if it feels warranted, such as in the case of gratitude posts for gifts, or maybe if I get possessed of the notion of doing more artist series, but by and large I want to try to tighten things down quite a bit. I’ll look forward to your thoughts on the new approach!
NB. James, of course, is not obligated to participate in this experiment at all, and will bring his own awesomeness in his own way, and on his own schedule!
2015, y’all. Let’s give ‘er!
