What are your go-to musical genres right now?
"House, Disco, 80's post-punk with a special interest in bands fronted by women, experimental rock , no wave, new age and ambient."

Hiroshi Yoshimura - Music For Nine Postcards

Don Cherry, Albert Ayler, John Tchicai, Roswell Rudd, Gary Peacock, Sonny Murray - New York Eye and Ear Control

What Do You Like About Working At CS?:
"It's gotta be the people, everyone is so friendly. Every staff member has great knowledge of music and records and is willing to share that knowledge in a way that is unpretentious and welcoming. I also love that many of my coworkers also pursue creative past-times such as playing music or DJing. I think it's cool to see so many folks really involved in music or the arts outside of work and it keeps me motivated to do the same."
