This is the angst-ridden companion to my last mix, We Can't See Clear, But What We See is Alright


This mix is partially the reason why I didn't put "Eric's Trip" on the last mix. The last one was about my new-found adult responsibilities and ideas and coming to terms with them, while this one focuses alot more on being young and being very intimidated by what lies ahead. All of the songs are pretty self-explanatory, with the Neko Case track playing the same part as the Bob Dylan track on the last one. Instead of being "the old wise man who tells you like it is", it serves as that authority/mentor figure that warns you before doing something. Consider it a reminder to "listen to your elders", especially during such a transition, because they know what they're talking about.I really wanted this part of the mix to capture the same sentiment from the first one, but on a much more personal level. I understand that I'm stepping into adulthood (whether I like it or not), but I'm still young and don't know if I'm all that ready for it.
As you can see, there isn't any really "old" music, except for the Croce track. I tried to keep the tracks limited to only "modern" bands (to go with the whole "youthful" thing), but I really don't listen to a lot of the newer indie stuff, so this is as modern as it gets for me.

Ooh. I love your opener and closer. And your Pixies , Stripes, Mozzer, Fields... Pretty much everything except for Alanis. Hey, 14 out of 15 is enough for 5 Gold stars right?

Alanis may seem lame, or whatever, but the song is effective :)

God could scream till he's blue in the face but he wouldn't have a solitary thing to say to me that I'd be interested in. This mix however has my attention big time!

In consideration of your comments, this is a impressively thought-out mix. Plus anyway it has some sweet music on it - new White Stripes and Dino Jr., the best of Weezer, classic Husker Du and Pixies, many other highlights. But in the context of your theme, it's even better. The songs really reflect that uncertainty you talk about, and to which we can all relate. Well, at least me. Any chance of a third mix? This and your last one are intelligent, creative, and enjoyable (-looking) bunches. Don't stop now, and good luck with everything

Great picks here. And thanks for the cmt, you are right, Gina Burch (Raincoats) would fit right in.
