March 2009 Mix CD

  1. Tokyo Police Club – Nature of the Experiment
  2. The Presets – Are You the One?
  3. Mindless Self Indulgence – Never Wanted to Dance
  4. VHS or Beta – Can’t Believe a Single Word
  5. Bloc Party – Banquet
  6. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! (a decidedly American song by the Australian)
  7. Pavement – Stereo (I can’t listen to this song without thinking of Sloshy‘s “We Don’t Really Even Care About You”)
  8. The Verve Pipe – Hero
  9. Beck – No Complaints
  10. Mindless Self Indulgence – On It (insanely catchy and over-the-top complete with slick production)
  11. Chemical Brothers – Star Guitar (edit) (a surprisingly understated track with an understated but fascinating video)
  12. Friendly Fires – Paris (I especially love the lush final minute of the song; strong yet haunting)
  13. Klaxons – Isle of Her (this brings to mind a ship full of Vikings chanting a rowing song)
  14. The Killers – Shadowplay (I’m not a Killers fan, but I approve of Joy Division)
  15. TV on the Radio – Golden Age (the version TotR performed on SNL wasn’t very good; way too “blurry” and not finely tuned at all)
  16. Fujiya & Miyagi – Collarbone
  17. Asobi Seksu – Thursday
  18. Our Lady Peace – Is Anybody Home? (don’t try hitting the same range that frontman Raine Maida does – you will hurt yourself)
  19. The Shins – Weird Divide
  20. The National – Slow Show (this one has taken a while to grow on me, but I totally buy into it now)
  21. VHS or Beta – Bring on the Comets
  22. Holy Fuck – Lovely Allen (energetic and uplifting – we’re going out with a bang on this one)

Arbitrary song of the day: White Zombie – Blood, Milk and Sky
