Perhaps more than a tradition by now, Mike Jedlicka of Optic Echo Presents has been sharing with us his favorite vinyl-only selections of the year since 2011. Jedlicka and I were taking last night, him in Portland, me in New York, the opposite coasts of this barely united states of America, finding ourselves in some similar stages of our lives, with all those other "real-world" things, like jobs, family, health, and aging.

Music is here to ground us back to base.
