Favorite record for an overcast Sunday afternoon.

At the moment I would listen to Sigur Ros or the new Lucinda Williams. In the past, probably Gillian Welch.

The album that changed your life:

Bob Dylan’s “Greatest Hits.” I was 13 when I heard it on a cassette in my dad’s car. I was into all the music of the day, but from then on I was fascinated with that kind of music and it opened up the door to Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. I just loved the words and the way they left space for all this imagery.

A record or artist you first hated but now really like:

Maybe Stevie Wonder. When I first heard him I actually thought he was weird. But now I’m very impressed.

Favorite love song:

“Ballerina” by Van Morrison. “The light is on the left side of your head [shakes head in amazement].”
