GB Favorites

It’s been a while since The Golden Bird started up. In every monthly recap since then, I’ve been listing the music which has had the most definitive impact on me that month. Just for everyone’s memory and convenience,  I’ll keep track of them here. I’ll update the list at the beginning of every month. It’s interesting to see how musical tastes can change, and where they may be headed. Anyways, here it is – The Golden Bird favorites:
