Hi. I'm Lars Gotrich. I do a lot of things for NPR Music. I enjoy metal, fun-killer noise, effusively joyful pop music and beer.
Here’s a 7-hour Spotify playlist of songs and whatnot I liked from 2012, which might as well prove that my taste in music makes absolutely no sense. (The Don Cherry/Solange/Bosse-de-Nage transition is my favorite.)
