I have been exceptionally busy this week, as I always tend to be in the summer. Luckily, the mix knew what it wanted to do and I didn’t have to spend much time tweaking it.
Happy Birthday, USA.
- R.E.M. – Supernatural Superserious
Everybody here comes from somewhere, that they would just as soon forget and disguise
- Liam Lynch – United States of Whatever
- Regina Spektor – Uh-Merica
- Ben Folds Five – Army
Sorry, not sorry.
- The Mountain Goats – See America Right
If we never make it back to California I want you to know I love you
- Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – The Dark of The Sun
- Bruce Springsteen – American Land
- The Connells – Scotty’s Lament
I’ve been thinking about The Connells a lot in the past few months, and oddly enough after deciding to put this on the mix this week I found this post from a friend with this quote…
“Of all the bands that we played at my old radio station (FM106.3) on the Jersey shore, the one that’s missed the most – possibly – is The Connells.”
…which pretty much sums up what I’ve been thinking lately.
- Simon & Garfunkel – America
- Jesse Malin – God’s Lonely People
