Before We Forgot How to Dream is one of my favorite albums of 2015. It's by an artist you may not yet know, but I'm hoping you'll fall in love with her. Her name is Bridie Monds-Watson, better known as SOAK. Today SOAK plays dj on All Songs Considered playing music by Pink Floyd, Crazy Frog, R.E.M. and Bon Iver. And of course we'll play her thoughtful songs.
