I’ve produced a decent handful of records at this point (maybe 20 or so). This evening, Devon and I were sitting on the back porch, candles blowing and such, and BJ Kocen’s The Breaks was on repeat — 3 times over we listened to it. And while I played the majority of the instruments, the record’s true strength hangs in BJ’s voice, his songwriting, his pop sensibility, and his selflessness. I can’t recommend it enough.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hadn’t heard this in ages, but just found it during a bit of digital hoovering. Originally recorded for Our Christmas Present (2008) to support Our Community Place in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Do you know how much I love the second king? 8.8!
