Albums I’m Currently Obsessed With

Lately, I’ve been a bit narrow in my listening and have been obsessed with about four albums, listening to them on repeat. Most of them are old favourites with the comfort factor of a big warm doona.

Green Day – Nimrod

I’ve been listening to this album pretty constantly since its release in 1997 and although it’s not my favourite Green Day record, it’s pretty high on the list. The comfort and nostalgia factor of this record is off the charts.

Tom Petty – Wildflowers

I’ve only just started listening to this album (after buying it about 6 weeks ago) and already, I love, love, love it. It’s got some rock, some country and some great, lullaby-like ballads. Classic Tom Petty with a softer edge.

Social Distortion – Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell

I’m so obsessed with this album at the moment. A seamless blend of punk, country, blues and rockabilly…and Mike Ness’ amazing voice. Perfection in a punk record.

Neil Young – Harvest

Oh, how I love this record. It’s so soothing, so comforting, so beautiful. Even though the recording is less than amazing, each song is beautifully crafted and incredibly heartfelt. A Man Needs a Maid is the definite highlight for me.
