Sometimes you just get lucky - I’ve been running a backlog a few months deep and was about to start sorting through the hundreds of track subs for the essay list and somehow found myself listening to this track from Jon Meyer. There’s no rhyme or reason as to why it was the first one I listened to today but damn I’m glad I did.
When I find a track that I think might work I stick it on repeat and go and do a bit of non-music stuff - whether that’s image work, coding or policy / community work - things that aren’t always the most exciting but that need to be done.
I have no idea where the last 30 minutes went but I do know I’ve just put to bed something I‘ve been procrastinating on for weeks - so yes - thank you Jon!
Of course - what got me to listen to Jon’s track in the first place was his very considered track submission - smart - direct and gave me everything I needed to decide whether to listen or not. If you’re on the fence - here’s what Jon had to say about his own track:
It’s pretty bloody cool and well worth taking out for a spin. Oh - and if you’ve got the work done - he’s made a rather fabulous video with some glorious Drone footage - very cool!

About the Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.
