For the first 24 days of December, Radio in Opposition and guests will share with you one very special album, one day at a time. We call it RADVENT.
Day fourteen of RADVENT is upon us and today’s musical treat was selected by Enemies List Home Recordings, who aspire to one day outrank Nixon’s Wikipedia entry in Google. The album is “Keep It Like a Secret” from Built to Spill.
There was a year or so in college when I listened to that record every single day. I can still sing every word of every song. There’s just something about the songwriting – it’s so catchy, intricate but still completely accessible. It blew my mind then and still does today.
