ROAR Podcast!

What does a 12 piece Australian collective and a band from Leeds who occasionally sound a bit like the Cure (but not on this song) have in common? They're both on this week's episode! The International Music Podcast is here to introduce you to the best new music from beyond our boarders. Give it a listen here.

  • ROAR Holiday Gift Guide - 2022

    A few years ago I saw a gift guide blog post on a woodworkers’ shop page while I was shopping for gifts for my brother. I liked that the woodworker wasn’t pushing products, just listing things he found useful throughout the year. Some were as little as $5 (a nice pencil) and some were in the $1,000 plus category. Given that record collectors are particularly hard to buy for (who can keep up with their loved one’s collection?), this list includes items that are *not* records at various price points. Rather, these are things that I’ve found make for a great listening experience and I think other record collectors will enjoy them. There are no referral links or anything like that. Since this is a casual gift guide, everything is under $225, with most items in the <$50 range. Nearly everything I’m recommending I acquired myself this year, so it’s fresh on my mind. 

     

    The following is my guide for this year!
