Thanksgiving Comfort Music

Happy Turkey Day, yo. Other than the specter of genocide and the implications of imperial colonialism, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. A time for family, friends, eating, and falling asleep at a very early hour. My earliest memories of Thanksgiving are of going to Ben Franklin Parkway to see the parade, and of extremely tranquil days. All very comforting, so when my friend Gillian from Capital approached me about writing a piece about my comfort album (my musical equivalent to “comfort food”) I was happy to help her. I ended up writing about a record that I had been listening to earlier on that week, and had featured in a past Breakbeat Tuesday, the self titled Lee Michaels album form 1969. Hope you enjoy the picks that me and a few of my friends came up with, and have a great holiday.
