I like lot a of things. 4,364 things to be exact. That’s how many tweets I’ve liked. Most of them are posts about music that I want to remember to go back and listen to. Here are some of the tweets I liked this week:
Matthew McQueen a.k.a. Matthewdavid, the ambient and hip-hop producer, co-founder of Leaving Records and resident Dublab.com DJ, tweeted out this link to his latest New Age album “Trust the Guide and Glide.” Ever seen one of those head massage things that look like a whisk? Imagine 88 minutes of that. It’s the perfect Sunday morning music.

What’s not to like about that? Music fans everywhere received a sad piece of news this week with the passing of Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest. Saxophonist and frequent Kendrick Lamar collaborator, Terrace Martin released an ATCQ-inspired track from his upcoming album “Velvet Portraits.” (I’ll be liking that soon.)

If you’ve been reading these posts then you already know I like Four Tet and Floating Points. Those two giants of electronic music were joined by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith for a two-hour set of vinyl classics. Listen for three minutes and just try not to hang around for the entire set.
How could I not like this next tweet? Aphex Twin makes music can oscillate between beautiful and atmospheric to totally bugged out. Listen to what he was up to in 1992.
