Whereas in April I could barely find enough songs to put together a short mix, this month I left out a ton in order to keeps thing brisk and well-paced. May was a great month for music and for myself. I went to Washington D.C. and New York and though I didn’t see any live bands, I found out about a bunch just by going to the record stores in the places and picking up weeklies and stuff. Anyways, here’s the mix, I think it’s a pretty good one.
1. The Hiya Dunes – Definitely Retarded
2. Monomyth – Sacred Hand
3. Daze Daze and the Siamese Grave – Faceplant
4. Pillowcase – Brain
5. Hemlock Shaw – Pals Around
6. No Joy – Junior
7. Weed – Tie To Everything You Own
8. Doldrums – Jump Up
9. Nomadic Firs – Cover Bombs
10. The Tight Ship – Home Again
Warren Hildebrand (aka Foxes in Fiction) and I were just chatting this morning on Facebook and he sent over this “Teen Dream” cover he did with Moodgadget labelmate Weed. I think we can all grudgingly admit to enjoying Katy Perry now that she’s married to Russell Brand, right? No? Anyways, their cover is great.
