  • Hudson Valley singer-songwriter Al Olender’s self-released debut album, Easy Crier, is out now.

Each month here we visit with a member of the community to find out what music they’ve been digging.

Driving back from the most recent tour I was on, I listened to “In My Corner” by Charlotte Cornfield, “Sunset Strip” by J. E. Sunde, and “Omaha” by Toro Y Moi on repeat for hours. Those three songs really seemed to sum up some parts of tour I really needed a song for. A mix of nostalgia and newness. It felt like the soundtrack to ending something (in this case, the tour) and beginning something else. I sang along so loudly, by myself, obviously crying too. I listened to Joyride by Adam Melchor and “New Apartment” by Ari Lennox a lot this last month and revisited Carrie and Lowell by Sufjan Stevens again to savor each delicate sound and word of that record. Manticore by Shovels & Rope is a masterpiece. I’ve been listening to more music than ever before, and that makes me happy.
