What are you listening to right now?

I need some new music suggestions.  I guess I will ask you on FB.  
But I will tell you right now that I am listening to Skip Spence's Oar .  My friend Austin gave me the CD last year when I was explaining to him that the basic tracks for 100 Oaks Revival was recorded initially in Nashville live within a few days.  Spence's Oar was recorded in 1969, in Nashville in a similar fashion only Skip Spence (formerly of Moby Grape) was on the brink of a mental breakdown or should I say he was losing his mind as he was recording.  
 There is a frenetic energy, a simplicity, a looseness, but  also some beautifully crafted sweet songs.   The barely audible vocals hit me just right.    I dunno!   You have to be in the mood, but  something about it captures Nashville in the way that I love it.  It is the city that as a kid,  I got to be surrounded by so many lovely musicians who schooled me.  Should I get a haircut like Skip's?

    Broadcast - Tender Buttons album. You probably already heard it, but thought I'd try and return the favor. Go karma. Alright I'm done.
