I found myself trying to formulate the words for today’s post, but strangely unable to so much as write the first word. Just as I was going to sit down to write the post, I learned via Twitter that the President had announced an uncommon surprise speech about national security to be delivered shortly. That’s kinda a unsettling announcement – and not entirely conducive to writing blog posts. And to be honest, even after the news was announced, I still was having trouble concentrating enough to write my post. In part, I found myself wondering just what this news means, what is its significance, and what will happen next. And yet, while I felt compelled to get that out of the way first, this post is not about that. Instead, I want to get back to business as usual: bringing great music recommendations to our readers. After all, when things are stated and done – life is going on as usual today.
And my inspiration to do just that came when I realized that the perfect pairing for today’s recipe was Typhoon‘s latest EP. In case you are new around here, you should know that we LOVE (yes – in all caps) Portland’s Typhoon. I placed their debut album Hunger & Thirst at the number 5 spot in my Top Albums of 2010 list, and if I’m being honest, I actually think I can state that I may have underrated the album. It is that good. If I were to reconsider my list this day – it’d probably end up in the Top 3. What this means, is that you should definitely get that album if you don’t already have it.
It is an intuitively perfect pairing for Kasey’s Weeknight Roast Chicken and Potatoes recipe. Both are straightforward but so full of unexpected flavor. Indeed, this is a weeknight album. An anytime album. An album for when you just want to listen to something good that you can happily enjoy as it plays in the background, but which will delight you with each note if you listen carefully. Like the recipe, this album would be decadent if it wasn’t so unpretentious. Buy it from Insound.
Head to the Kitchen to read Kasey’s recipe for weeknight roast chicken and potatoes.
