So I was on NPR on Friday…

…and I forgot to listen! I did the Polar Bear Plunge on New Year’s Day, and I do believe that diving into the 35° Boulder Reservoir may have frozen my brain.

In any case, my conversation with David Dye is streaming online now (so I can finally hear it!) and I would love to invite you to come take a listen while we talk about some of my favorites of 2009! Anthony DeCurtis from Rolling Stone is on the other half of the broadcast with David this year; it is always a joy to be a World Cafe guest.

LISTEN: Heather Browne on World Cafe (1/1/10)

  • Great job Heather!

    A Top Five would be so tough, but those are nice choices. I’ve been absolutely enthralled with The XX for the past couple of weeks, thanks again for the tip. Langhorne Slim & Roman Candle are definitely gems, and I guess I’ll have to give Fanfarlo another try – maybe I can do a double-header with the re-listening of Arcade Fire…

    I am so happy you included Lisa Hannigan in your top five! I haven’t taken Sea Sew out of rotation since I picked it up in Nov ’08, which is definitely the longest I’ve gone with one album. I’ve listened to lots of great stuff along the way to complement and/or change things up, but Sea Sew has been the mainstay for the past 14 months. I’d have never said “whimsical without being silly” (frankly, I’d have never THOUGHT to say that), but that really describes it. I’d call it ‘Fun and uncomplicated music with thought-provoking and intensely honest lyrics’. However you describe it, it will remain in play in the soundtrack of my life for the foreseeable future.

  • Thanks again for putting into words (written and spoken)the passion that music creates in each of us. I look forward to more of your posts that provide a glimpse into what you love and allowing us to experience it too.

  • Good job on doing the plunge! I was there too for my second time. I think it is a very cleansing way to start your New Year, that icy cold water takes all of last year’s gunk off of you. :) I hope your year is lovely.

Giving context to the torrent since 2005.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
