68 to 05

A friend linked to https://www.68to05.com, by Hanif Abdurraqib, on Twitter, and my jaw more than dropped. It’s obviously nice to be able to commission / write essays about various albums, but what a spectacular and thoughtful way to think about one’s music and one’s history in music.

I have been annoyed for some time about “spreadsheet music”, just displaying tracks in a row with no context, etc – not new critiques. I’ve been tinkering about how to improve things with different layouts and view, but this method of adding endless context is pretty amazing.
