No real theme here, just either songs I have been listening to lately or songs I always like showing/playing for people. There will surely be more of these to come. I threw the playlist file in there so hopefully you all can listen to it in the order I intended on Itunes or even some other Nazi music program (it's the disc jockey/playlist nerd in me). But nevertheless, these are some choice tunes for certain and I'll throw a little note next to each one. It's the disc jockey playlist...wait...
1. The Peppermint Tree-The Amorphous Androgynous (cool psych tune, 60s like Pink Floyd vs Flaming Lips)
2. Nowhere to Run-Martha Reeves and the Vandellas (good ole fashioned soul music)
3. Aquarian Time-Wooden Shjips (doing what they do...always awesome garage/psych)
4. Mr. Grieves-The Pixies (classicly demented)
5. Red Tuesday-Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve (so blissful and warm...)
6. Liquid Memoryman-The Oscillation (GROOVE)
7. Canned Happiness-MV/EE & the Bummer Road (hazy, squinty eyed rock music...good thing)
8. Echohead-Big Blood (they are incredible...almost a Pixies-like lead)
9. America's Most Blunted-Madvillain ft. Quasimoto (such an awesom beat)
10. Wanyama Na Mapambazuko-Akira Ishikawa & Count Buffalo (those riffs!)
11. Ashes Round the Skull-The Blue Angel Lounge (mind blowing VU styled rock)
12. Juggernaut-Black Pus (the drummer from Lightning Bolt...madness)
13. Trouble Everywhere I Go (Alt version)-Mississippi Fred McDowell (masterful)
14. Gimme Some Truth-John Lennon (money for dope! money for rope!)
15. Ant 10-Boredoms (indescribable, a ryhthmic psych techno monster thing type song ma jig)
16. Ride My High (Joakim Edit)-JJ Cale (tasteful sleaziness? more groooooove)
17. Everybody Knows This is Nowhere-Neil Young & Crazy Horse (come on, it's Neil Young!)
18. Friends-Ducktails (summer drones, very nice and peaceful)
19. Sweet Premium Wine-KMD (sadly underappreciated early 90s group)
20. Turtles Have Short Legs (B Side)-Can (so happy! great beat as always)
