Music of the Month - June 2022

I’ve been seemingly just living in the land of Jazz lately, because this month will again be filled with some incredible Jazzyish tunes. I’ve also been pleasantly surprised recently at the others in my tech circle that also seem to enjoy jazz. This has been a fun intersection for me.

Album of the Month

Like last month, I made a new discovery this month that blew my mind. There was an album I came across called Box Tree by Skúli Sverrisson and Óskar Guðjónsson. While it’s not the focus of this month it’s a beautiful album nonetheless, and it introduced me to the playing of Óskar Guðjónsson. While exploring his work I was introduced to ADHD, and was just blown away. Their album Adhd 7 is the album of the month for me this month.

They played a live show for KEXP that was also incredible. It’s rare for me to just sit and watch a recorded show in its entirety, but I did for this.

Song of the Month

The song of the month for me comes off of the album Box Tree I mentioned up above by Skúli Sverrisson and Óskar Guðjónsson. The song is For Seconds at a Time, which is the first one I heard off the album. Starts off real simple, and then just coddles you into relaxation when the Sax comes in. Such a beautiful song.

See you next month
