Morning Mix 11/20/09

After three straight days of driving 50 miles in traffic back and forth to the suburbs for training (teaching this week after attending last week), I was finally back on the train this morning. You SoCalers who drive every day don't realize how nice it is to live close to reliable and clean public transportation.
  • In the Flowers - Animal Collective
  • The King of Carrot Flowers - Neutral Milk Hotel
  • Blue Spark - X
  • Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before - the Smiths
  • Not Even Jail - Interpol
  • Pandora's Box - Throwing Muses
  • Seems So - the Apples in Stereo
  • Can You Feel It - the Apples in Stereo
I think that's the first time since I've started this that I've had two songs from the same band back to back. First time Animal Collective has popped up as well, the first track from what will probably be my album of the year, in a close race with Dirty Projectors.

Morning Mix 11/16/09

Back from training and back on the train. Here's today's lineup:
A bunch of tracks that are arguably the best on their respective albums. Still not sure how the Peels never made it, with Robyn Miller's voice and good looks. I've seen six of these acts in concert, and I skipped the one chance I had to see Matthew Sweet.

Here's the High Dials. This is the only good version of this song that I can find on Youtube, but it really doesn't do justice to the live version, which is an incredible 10 minute jam.
