At any point of time, it's likely that I'm obsessed with some
song/artist or the other. If it's not love, it must be music that
makes the world (at least my world) go 'round. I'm terrible at
classifying music, and understanding genres, but I think my genre
is folk, folk rock, singer-songwriter, alternative, sufi, 'world
music' (whatever that means), though I do find myself enjoying a
variety of music that doesn't fit those categories. If music was a
religion, Bob Dylan would be my God.
Other artists I like: Glen Hansard, Soko, Broken Bells, Bob Marley,
Hey Marseilles, Playing for Change, Indian Ocean, AR Rehman,
Question for radio listeners: Does SF have a local flavor of
Seattle's KEXP? I love that station, and try and catch it online,
but miss having it in the radio waves around.
