With Summer keeping me busy, the posts have slowed but I managed to get some listening in recently. I have a Tidal trial until September so this is a great time to audition some music.
Breakwater-Breakwater / Breakwater-Splashdown Late 70’s R&B/funk, reminds me of The Brothers Johnson, The Commodores, and Earth, Wind, and Fire. Both albums are enjoyable and I am on the lookout for both.
The Raconteurs - Help Us Stranger This is their latest album and it’s good, solid, and unspectacular. Would pick it up if it were really cheap.
As for vinyl, I have 10 hours on the new cartridge/tonearm combo and first impressions are positive! Similar tone to the Hana SL but the ML expands on what the SL excels in, which in my experience is soundstage, detail, and tracking. Excited to keep listening to see how it settles in.
