I have found that I have stopped listening to music for the sake of just listening to music. It became quantity over quality and I was in a hurry to get it out in front of people instead of soaking it in. So, I have stepped away from the blog for awhile.
I am rethinking if and how I want to keep it going. The bottom line is I love sharing new or obscure music with others. This has been a good avenue for that passion and I'm pretty sure I don't want to give that up. I might just change the format.
I also have a radio show on MTPR.org once a month. It is a special music edition to the show In Other Words. It features women artists and I have been able to share many of my favorites that wouldn't get air time on main stream radio. It is usually the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 10:30 PM MST. Tune in if you get a chance.
Meanwhile, check out the top 25 I shared earlier this year. Many of them would have made my end of year list if I had compiled one.
I hope to be back soon sharing howling good tunes with you. My hope is that it can be more interactive, I really want to know what you are listening too as well--what artists, songs or albums you just can't stop listening to.

I had planned on a Top 25 so far list but truly I am repeatedly listening
to at least that many of this year's releases. In no particular order, I offer up
to you my favorites for the first half of 2012. They range from my predictable
singer/songwriter, alt-country/Americana to all out pop.
There are a lot of really good artists putting out some really good
albums--not just songs for a hit but actual albums that should stand the test of time.
I hope you like some of these and are inspired enough to support the artist
by purchasing their album.
