AuralSex 1: Finale/New Beginnings

Hockneyized Bay Bridge

Let’s welcome a new feature on the blog, which I’m calling AuralSex. It’s a collection of wondrous sounds that make love to your ears. Plus, they call you the next day at work, just to see how you’re doing!

I’ll be frequently updating with new playlists, interviews and ramblings.

So pack your bags, get in the car and wave goodbye to 2007 as you drive off. It’s a new year and you are ready.

With that in mind, let’s start 2008 with some quality music all about beginnings and ends. From somber visits to a friend’s gravestone, to dreams of flying away, each song has a different answer about what it means to leave our past behind and start anew.
