What We Watch/Listen/Read



This is generally what music plays in our kitchen while we cook (and clean), it rotates depending on the mood and what we’re into lately.


I’m a big fan of music I can just groove to, no need to sing along when cooking, or doing dishes, (I think it makes it go faster).  I’m also a big fan of many genres, lemme tell ya, the girls don’t much like metal, but its the best music to wash your kitchen floor to.  Side-note, It’ll probably come up more than a few times, I have mad guy love for John Mayer.  I wrote an article about it a few years back for the paper actually, ha.  Finally, Coheed is hands down my favorite band.  Who cares if Claudio makes absolutely no sense.  They are a modern day Rush (also brilliant), and they rock so hard.  You gotta respect the idea of not just a concept album, but a concept band. Enjoy.


Coheed and Cambria

In Flames

John Mayer

Rodrigo and Gabriela


Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

Ray Lamontagne


We like world flavors, and I like to match the music to the dish, whether it’s Latin, Indian, African or Middle Eastern. Day to day, I like music with soul. You gotta feel the groove when you’re cooking. Oldies are good, but so are contemporary artists with retro sound, such as the following:

Raphael Saadiq

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings

Alice Russell

ZAP (local Columbia band)

The Greyboy Allstars

The Budos Band
