“With such countless people getting along with loved ones, there’s a great deal to praise this midyear,” he said. “I set up a playlist of a portion of the tunes I’ve been paying attention to of late  — it’s a blend of old and new, easily recognized names and arising craftsmen, and a ton in the middle.”
