Throughout the first half of 2013, I spent most Mondays drinking coffee with my dear friend Chris Guthrie. We first met ten years ago at Capital University. He's the type of guy that you flock to immediately, like a tick latches onto a fawn. I am the parasite in this relationship.
We meet at the same coffee shop we frequented throughout college. Cup O' Joe. It was there that I forced myself to become a coffee drinker (my initial order was iced coffee with four shots of espresso).
It was also there that "Album of the Week" was born.
AOW was a highlight of 2013.
Chris and I have insatiable thirsts for more music. More practicing, performing, listening, writing. It’s never enough. That’s the thing about music.
In an effort to dig deeper, we decided to try listening to albums together, one per week. On Sundays we pick and throughout the week we talk. There are no other rules.
We typically pick albums that are relatively new to us, with a few exceptions.
*I moved the whole list to HERE*
These albums act as placeholders for memories, one week at time.
