weekly mix #27

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.

  1. R.E.M. – Supernatural Superserious
    Everybody here comes from somewhere, that they would just as soon forget and disguise
  2. Liam Lynch – United States of Whatever
  3. Regina Spektor – Uh-Merica
  4. Ben Folds Five – Army
    Sorry, not sorry.
  5. The Mountain Goats – See America Right
    If we never make it back to California I want you to know I love you
  6. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – The Dark of The Sun
  7. Bruce Springsteen – American Land
  8. 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.
  9. Simon & Garfunkel – America
  10. Jesse Malin – God’s Lonely People

mix hiatus

I’m going to be putting the weekly mixes on hiatus until I get a proper working computer again. Not having a working computer or even a desk to blog from is making things a bit difficult, especially since I’m also in the process of trying to rearrange my apartment and enjoy summer, which is a basic human right.

For now, here‘s a draft of 7/8’s mix, which is as finished as it will ever be at this point.
