A Favorite Music Resource: Kevin Richard Martin

There’s nothing I enjoy more about hifi than discovering new music.

A few favorite resources include friends (the best), weekly picks from Boomkat and Bleep, reviews from Pitchfork and The Quietus, and radio (WPRB and WFMU).

I recently added another to my list: Kevin Richard Martin offers up an “Album of the Day” and a “7” of the Day” on his Instagram feed (the social media site I enjoy). Mr. Martin’s taste run far and wide which should come as no surprise to anyone who knows the music he makes as The Bug, King Midas Sound, and Kevin Richard Martin.

Some of Mr. Marin’s recent picks include Don Cherry Brown Rice (I already loved that record but it’s always nice to see who else does), William Basinski A Shadow In Time, Barrington Levy Shaolin Temple, Eduard Artemiev Solaris, and Lila Iké Second Chance (I’ve listened to this one one million  times).

If your musical tastes run off the beaten path, I recommend following @bugmanldn‘s lead.
