Comment:

Going for more of a peaceful moodiness this time, despite some louder sections. Got some new stuff in there (Nada Surf who I don't usually care much about, but this is a good lead single, and also Magnetic Fields and Mountain Goats) and lots of indie pop that just melts my heart with alternating joy and melancholy. I'm inclined to apologize for Colbie Caillat for superficial reasons, but the song perfectly matches the tone I was seeking, and whatever, I like her. Also included some stark covers of some of my favorite songs (reggae chestnut Pressure Drop, Strawberry Switchblade's Since Yesterday, Talking Heads', Road to Nowhere), just 'cuz they happened to be in my recent listening rotations at the same time and I realized they all touched on similar feelings. Oh and I realize this is like the 89th mix in a row of mine to feature Jens Lekman, but he was the Entertainer of the Year in 2007, if you ask me (his album and the many other recordings he released), and just seems appropriate for every occasion when it comes to my mixes. I'm proud to say he's my regular.
