Yet another change. Great.

Yeah, I just don't know what I want to do, honestly.

I love and listen to a lot of new things constantly. But, I find that I really don't have much else to say about it besides 'I like this' or 'I don't like this.'

Not that the music is shallow and lacking in substance — on the contrary.

For example, I can go on at great lengths about that new Appleseed Cast album, Sagarmatha. I think it's absolutely incredible and have listened to it pretty much daily since it came out (on my birthday — what a present!) and the music has opened up to me in several different ways and revealed many perspectives and layers. It's a deep, thought-provoking album that is also just great music. There are so many things that can be assessed and dissected about it and talked about indefinitely.

But, when it comes down to it, it's just a fantastic new album by one of my favorite bands. I feel like anything more posted on a blog like this is just asking any potential readers to just leave right now. So, why babble?

So, basically, I've decided all I really want to go on at great lengths about on a regular basis is the music of the man whose music has spoken to and touched like no one else's has for the better part of my existence on this planet.

I'm talking about David Axelrod.

I've been listening to his records and records with his name on them for most of my life and have never grown tired of any of it. I still like to talk about all of it. A lot.

So, I have decided I am going to be making this blog mostly about Axelrod and his body of work. I will start the revamp off with an in-depth look at his solo material. Then I will move on to affiliations and thoughts about specific things that relate to him.

Expect an in-depth Song Of Innocence write-up in the next few days.

In the meantime, check out my recently revamped Axelrod post I put up earlier this year from January's archive.

The archives will stay here. And if something unrelated to Axe moves me enough to share some thoughts, I certainly will.

Stay tuned. It's about to get interesting. I promise.
