Music that you can work to is a special thing. You can’t listen to just anything when you’re writing, especially when you’re deciphering engineering speak regarding all this SOA and JS and EJB and ERP and API stuff and translating it into meaningful English (which is what I’ve been doing lately). These artists have been in heavy rotation on my computer this winter (and when I say heavy, I mean creepily and obsessively constant). I listened to the Grimes album so much a few months ago that Spotify wouldn’t let me play it anymore. I didn’t even know that was a thing.
