"take it easy" by hopetown lewis
from this is reggae music
oh my god. anyone heard this? he sounds like a jamaican doug sahm.... so beautiful.
"stand alone" by bob marley and the wailers
from african herbsman
seems like i only do party shuffle these days but this shit just blew my mind the other day when it cruised onto my headphones. only that voice can make me think all is right in the world. so wicked.
"ALL" by animal collective
from sung tongs
this album is pretty much what gets me up the morning. if shit is shit i put this on and do a little number round the bedroom. dancing like a filthy hippie at a dead concert. they made me like *new* music again! talbot will be proud.
"her song" by colin blunstone
"why don't you try" by leonard cohen
love this song. i actually believe that when he says 'just open your dainty little hand' that he's talking to me, truly...p.s. can anyone tell me why AMG sucks so bad now?
"wet ground" by sondre lerche
from chill jam mix by jonathan chimney
a heart wrenching jam that i just love. had the pleasure of passing through town briefly and was blessed with a mix from jon chim, soooo good.
"we could send letters" by aztec camera
from high land, hard rain
unearthed some old mix tapes from way back when and this track is proving it's timelessness. (p.s. glad to be back. xo)
"Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera
for those of you who'll actually read this track heed those grunts and groans cause while i can't really say this song sends me it does stay with me and not like a bad rash. i, along with a litter of other chimneys, think mainstream pop music is pretty relevant and seeing christina aguilera sing this last night and watching the 30 or so fans of hers front row center throw up their arms at the first chorus was pretty amazing. it didn't make me want to go out and buy the record but it did make me think twice about the impact of music—not that i don't think about that all the time seeing as though i'm fucking obsessed with it—but it made me think of myself as a pre-teener and how before i worshiped the dead kennedys and the clash and the cure the sex pistols all the random and rad bands i discovered in jr. high i WORSHIPED pop music. and i danced my little ass off to michael jackson and madonna and prince and all the equivalent pop music bands from the eighties. i mean isn't it pretty much how most everyone discovers music? [outside of the constant folk soundtrack our parents played in the background] anyhow i think it's a fitting last track for me on track of the day, it's been real chimneys.
"Christine" by House of Love
...as if i heard this on the radio but i kind of wish i did. like it was high school all over again... no scratch that because by the time i got to high school it wasn't nearly as cool as the four years previous where the eighties were still kind of dirty and dark... and while i was still stealing my mom's drugs four years previous and hitchhiking all over the neighborhood i lived in—i still didn't know great music yet.
"To See the Fires" by Broker/Dealer
from The Re-Rule Collection
I like this band a lot. Sometimes I think the guy with the brown hair is cute. I know the girl who dates him. If you haven't checked them out you really should they're the best. Don't be afraid of techno, we all learn to love it at some point in our lives, maybe your time is now!
