mixtape 3: i’m just wondering where you’ll sleep tonight

In a shining example of all that is good, pure, and holy about this here process of music-sharing, last week I fell in love with a band on Dana’s playlist named Beach Fossils. I’d never heard them before, yet I immediately hustled out to obtain their album and have been listening to it all week.

As a consequence, my current playlist is loosely themed around that Beach Fossils sound: lo-fi, retro-throwback, beach-boardwalking, garage-rock. These songs in particular also seem to be about people in varying degrees of love and/or lust, so I guess you could call the subtheme “crushing.” I’ve had just one single solitary hardcore crush as an adult, and boy, that did not end well. So I feel kinda bad for some of these folks, because I can see the writing on the wall. But hey, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying their music!

Just a note: those of you viewing this inside a reader will probably just see a blank space under this sentence where the music player should be. Click through to the blog if you want to listen in.

  1. hooray! love yo la tengo & liz phair. I was get nostalgic for her!

  2. I love Yo La Tengo. Nostalgic music for me is 90s music, just cos it reminds me of being young and so excited about everything!

  3. YES! Perfect mix. I agree w/ Lisa. I’m likin’ the Beach Fossils too!

    I’m weird about music. I have to hear it about three times before I decide I love it.

  4. Yo La Tengo! OHHH LA LA!

    Dum Dum Girls makes me want to do that awkward semi-punk rock hop. Know what I mean? The angsty hop all the cool girls do at all the cool shows? Sweetness.

  5. There really is no point to my comment because I was going to say, “Ooh, Yo La Tengo!” harumph.

  6. your playlist is perfect for my mood today, for sure! i loved the best coast! great picks…and no problem, lady, glad to see it worked!
