TOTR 35: Research is a Mixtape, part one

As professors, we spend too much time in the iTunes of ideas. For us, a bibliography is just a playlist of philosophy. When I go scavenging in the aesthetic ether for new tunes to share on this show, it's not unlike spending time in the library stacks or on the search engines scholary-ness.

This week, I share the results of having a week off the program last week: extensive digging to distill the sounds of now. All new music to this season--and some of it from bands that are enitrely new to me as well as from the popular ones or old faves with recent releases.
