Calc's Cool Cuts 2019

Another great year in the books. Little girl turned one a few weeks ago, talk about a refocus in your life priorities. Everything is going well and there was a lot of good shit that came out this year. Hope everyone has a happy or at least bearable holiday this year.

Very homogeneous piano compilation album. Twinkly melodies and slow burning progressions make this easy to zone out too.

AOTY 1B: I've never heard a guitar album like this. You know when Trinity is fleeing the robots in the third Matrix movie and they fly above the clouds and see the sun? This whole album is like that feeling.

AOTY 1A: I usually find one album a year that lodges itself into my brain. And with this even when I'm listening to something else I'm think I could be listening to this instead and rockin out with my cockin out. Glad this caught on a little around here.
