Playlist 7/7/2005 The Mellow Sounds ...

1. Builds the Bone - The Hidden Cameras
Wonderful, lo-fi acoustic ballad, reminds me of 1970s folk rock.

2. He War - Cat Power
A lot of folks called this little lady overrated. I disagree. The slightly funk piano on this track and the grimy guitar riff make this a nice little diddy.

3. Crossover - EPMD
I miss Cross-Colors and Air Jordans, Kid N Play, and Hip-Hop that made you jump around.

4. I don't Rap in Bumperstickers - Sole

5. Multicultural Markets - Curse ov Dialect
Australian hip-hop?!? Very good Bollywood loops and complex lyrics.

6. Dust My Broom - Robert Johnson

7. Minor Threat - Minor Threat
Reminds me of the days playing with a drummer who couldn't afford a he beat on trashcans during a recording session. Cheap amps. Arguments over alcohol and candy.

8. See You in Hill, Motherfucker - Cold Archives Experiment
Filtering down a simple guitar loop, mixing in all these old BBC samples and Al Pacino. Very Man V. Astroman sounding track.

9. Sunday Bloody Sunday - u2

10. Coming Back to You - Leonard Cohen

11. Last Dance with Mary Jane - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Makes me crave a pitcher of cheap beer and a pizza, possibly a pool table. Lynyrd Skynryd, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and Waylon Jennings have the same effect.

12. Motion Picture Soundtrack - Radiohead

Ah yes, Leonard Cohen should be on everyone's playlist.
