Stanton Thatcher, drummer for Tall Pines, shares his disc picks.
1. Sonic Youth, Sister
How do humans with guitars and drums make an album this beautifully ethereal?
2. T. Rex, The Slider
I keep coming back to this. Catchy and abstract songs about nothing and everything.
3. Diplo and Triple Double, AEIOU
Covers lots of bases. A good mix of rare psyche, soul, and other oddities.
4. Mudhoney, Piece of Cake
A high school love I cannot shake.
5. Love, Forever Changes
No words were wasted here. Arthur Lee was a brilliant man.
