October 2020 No Pants Record Store Shopping
I am a firm believer that good music doesn’t have a shelf life, that your favourite tracks should be put on repeat, regularly and you should tell your friends, your neighbours and strangers about the music you’ve discovered and loving.
If you say that the best music was made in your high school years, then you just aren’t looking hard enough.
We live in a world where we have an easier time discovering music from around the world. We should step out of our comfort zones and find new music.
