  1. 32.28 COLIN MELOY - COLIN MELOY SINGS LIVE! (2009) Pulling a bit of an endrun here to get a bunch more Decemberists songs, but I really love the sound quality and voice quality of this album and it is really so good to play at any time. "Devil's Elbow" "We Both Go Down Together" "Evoking a Campfire Singalong" "The Gymnast, High Above the Ground" "Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect/Dreams" "Dracula's Daughter" "Wonder" "A Brief Introduction to Shirley Collins" "Barbara Allen" (traditional) "The Engine Driver" "On the Bus Mall" "A Skull, a Ship, and a Sheep" "California One/Youth and Beauty Brigade/Ask" "The Bachelor and the Bride" "A Cautionary Song" "Red Right Ankle" "Bandit Queen"
  2. 31.13 THE ROOTS - ILLADELPH HALFLIFE (1996) Would have preferred Things Fall Apart, but after that, this is my favorite Roots album top to bottom (though there are several individual songs on other albums that I probably like better). This is probably their most "studio" album and I'm not exactly sure why they did that, but I do like the production and Malik being more prominent. Respond/React Push Up Ya Lighter added to playlist
  3. yeah, i went with a couple of the more well-known tracks for the playlist, but listening through again, every song is really good. no skips on the island for that one.
  4. damn, i must have listened to this album way more than i even remember. i've certainly been a huge fan of their sound and would mix in some of their songs, especially the unplugged, into my regular spotify listening. But i certainly haven't listened to this whole album in maybe 20 years, but i know every song and everything feels totally familiar. weird. down in a hole would? added to playlist
  5. can you at least explain why/how you think that it is about to come out?
  6. 28.28 JACO PASTORIUS - JACO PASTORIUS (1976) Going on an eponymous album run here. Would have considered the Joni album and Metheny album where he was featured, but I really love this too. Unfortunately, only 2 of the tracks are Spotify, so we will go with those. Donna Lee would definitely have been in the running for my choices. Come on, Come Over or Portrait of Tracy or Cha-Cha. I don't know, a lot of them would have been up there. "Donna Lee" (Charlie Parker or Miles Davis) "Come On, Come Over" (featuring Sam & Dave) (Jaco Pastorius, Bob Herzog) "Continuum" "Kuru/Speak Like a Child" (Pastorius, Herbie Hancock) "Portrait of Tracy" "Opus Pocus" "Okonkolé Y Trompa" (Pastorius, Don Alias) "(Used to Be a) Cha-Cha" "Forgotten Love" Bonus tracks on 2000 reissue: "6/4 Jam" (previously unreleased) added to playlist
  7. yeesh, in Buffalo? be safe. this is crazy. it supposedly has spread out of downtown Philadelphia and into some of the suburbs. hope krista, eephus and everyone else near hornets' nests all stay safe.
  8. oh ####, i thought mezzanine was the first massive attack taken. wanted to take that a few rounds ago.
  9. 27.13 OZOMATLI - OZOMATLI (1998) This album really works for me here because it can scratch a lot of different itches. Salsa, Funk, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Rock all shaken up in a delightful blend with a variety of instrumentation. Cumbia De Los Muertos Chota added to playlist
  10. hmm, i don't feel that way about el-p at all, although he might be a little different now that in the co flow and solo days. i guess i can't speak for current rTJ fans, but co flow seemed like they crossed over a lot with the backpack rap crew (despite his beef with sole) which was certainly predominantly white and i think had a certain crossover with indie and punk rock and i always thought that the connection stemmed from there. but i can't say for sure (and don't mean to short shrift any of your other ideas, just this line stood out to me.
  11. 26.28 (happy, krista?!) ES POSTHUMUS - UNEARTHED (2001) E.S. Posthumus was an independent musicgroup that produced a form of 21st-century classical music/epic music that intertwined popular style drum rhythms with orchestral and electronic sounds. Their music is inspired by the Pythagorean philosophy which states that "music is the harmonization of opposites; the conciliation of warring elements". The E.S. is an acronym for "Experimental Sounds" while Posthumus (Latin: posthumus, meaning "after death"; pronounced the same as Latin postumus (no 'h'), meaning "last") is a word that is meant to represent "all things past", suggesting the music was inspired by things that have ended, some time after they ended. In keeping with the theme of "all things past", each of the thirteen tracks on the album is named after an ancient and abandoned or destroyed city. i first became aware of these guys because I was wondering how snowgoons developed these rich majestic beats and came to learn that snowgoons was sampling a lot of esp’s stuff. Then I heard one of their tracks as nfl bumper music and later learned that they did a fair amount of tv scoring. anyway, sadly enough, one half of the duo died in 2010, but they made some pretty cool stuff in their time. "Antissa" "Tikal” "Harappa" "Ulaid" "Ebla" "Nara" "Cuzco" "Nineveh" "Lepcis Magna" "Menouthis" "Estremoz" "Pompeii" "Isfahan"
  12. It’s fine. I just happened to be listening to that yesterday and thinking about it. considering preemptively selecting RTJ4
  13. 25.28 PENNYWISE - UNKNOWN ROAD (1993) One of my favorites from back in my 14 year old skate punk days. entire album is less time than some of the tracks on the playlist. second song selection seems appropriate for tonight’s activities, including my own city. (Actually sort of the first song too) 1."Unknown Road" 2."Homesick" 3."Time to Burn" 4."It's Up to Me" 5."You Can Demand" 6."Nothing" 7."Vices" 8."City is burning " 9."Dying to Know" 10."Tester" 11."Try to Conform” 12."Give and Get” 13."Clear Your Head”
