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

I’ve been in a folk-rock mood lately, so going back to some records I was obsessed with in high school: Tim Buckley’s Happy/Sad (“Pleasant Street” in particular) and the first few records by Steeleye Span (but check YouTube for their sessions with DJ John Peel, in particular the version of “Blacksmith”). Those segue naturally, at least for me, into the Mekons’ Curse of the Mekons, and that into Portishead’s Dummy, which sends me forward into the current century with Micachu and the Shapes’ Jewellery. For some reason I follow that with the Pop Group’s “She Is Beyond Good and Evil,” and then I’m into dub and I stay there: Joe Gibbs’s The Chapters and all manner of King Tubby. Then I end the session with Burial’s Untrue.

Luc Sante is a Kingston resident, Bard College faculty member, and the author of numerous books includingLow Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York,The Other Paris,Kill All Your Darlings, and, most recently,Maybe the People Would Be the Times.
