Newspaper tunes, Jan. 20 edition

The Silos' album Cuba

Each week when I collect edit, organize and prioritize the pieces that a couple days later will come together as the next edition of The Island News, the weekly, ultra-local newspaper in Beaufort, S.C., of which I am editor, I do so with music in the background.

Sometimes, I listen to a lot of music over the couple of days I’m putting the paper together. Other weeks, not nearly as much, especially if I’m spending a lot of time on the phone.

And quite often, the music will follow obvious trends or themes, depending on what I may be in the mood to hear that particular week, or maybe based on other things that are happening. But other times, the music might be totally random and follow no pattern at all. Just a longing to hear things I may not have heard in a while.

Anyway, wasting no more time, here are the albums I listened to while putting together the Jan. 20 issue of The Island News:
