#2121: Broken Hills

Done a lot of moving around in the last two weeks and my old Nano has been my constant companion. When you’re in motion songs hit different in different spots. From tractoring around a SC pine farm to getting blinded by strobes at my first post-lockdown show. From the public transit slog from Newark airport to getting elbow deep into the dirt of my own backyard. Songs can come at you sideways, slip into a crack you didn’t know was there. So here’s an hour of (mostly) uninterrupted modern goodness in the style of walking around, soaking in the ambience of a place and *just* the right song.
