Midweek Playlist: 8/31/11

Posted by: on Aug 31, 2011 | One Comment

It must be some kind of miracle because two midweek playlists in a row hasn’t happened in a while. I’d most highly recommend “Relaxin'” and “Boss”.

    1. Floating Action – “50 Lashes”
    2. G-Side & G-Mane – “RELAXIN'”
    3. Ganglians – “Cryin’ Smoke”
    4. Howlin’ Woods – “Boss” (Live)
    5. Josh Rouse & The Long Vacations – “Oh, Look What the Sun Did!”
    6. Lord Huron – “The Problem With Your Daughter”
    7. Mesita – “Jet Trails”
    8. Neon Indian – “Polish Girl”
    9. No Ceremony – “HURTLOVE”
    10. Purity Ring – “Ungirthed” 
    11. Siskiyou – “Twigs and Stones”
    12. Trailer Trash Tracys – “Dies in 55”

2 Years in Pictures: Part 2

Posted by: on Aug 28, 2011 | No Comments

The saga continues with hiking, rodeos, and a crazy crab…

1/10/10: January included a trip to the Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve in the Oakland hills. I was expecting an active volcano, but my disappointment was quickly swept away thanks to the marginally entertaining labyrinth paths. 

2/11/10: In February I saw a Citroën DS which has to be the most fake futuristic car ever. Recently I saw one in The 10th Victim.

4/19/10: On my birthday Anna and Baimba did some clever hair-trick at La Pinata in Alamenda. 

4/24/10: Kris and I had an epic Fresno weekend which included a pretty great turn-out at the Clovis Rodeo.

6/3/10: KKMM starring in Newsies

6/16/10: Merle Haggard at the Mountain Winery was everything I thought it would be.

7/29/10: Not sure which North Beach date this was, but Kris in front of American Zoetrope suddenly felt very European. 

7/31/10: Jenness made this bomb-ass cake for someone’s birthday.  

8/10/10: In August a love affair began. 

 8/27/10: KKMM is very well read.

It’s been a while since the midweek playlist was actually posted on a Wednesday (or at all), but I was recently able to get caught up with music blogs, and thought I’d share some findings. “Top Bunk” is my favorite and thus gets top billing. Enjoy!

    1. Gauntlet Hair – “Top Bunk”
    2. Atlas Sound – “Terra Incognito”
    3. Branded Stilts – “Forest, Oh Forest, Protect Me”
    4. Blitzen Trapper – “Love The Way You Walk Away”
    5. Bon Accord – “Lopsided”
    6. Born Blonde – “Solar”
    7. Cass McCombs – “The Same Thing”
    8. Chaweewan Dumnern– “The Sound of Siam”
    9. Dan Mangan – “Oh Fortune”
    10. DUDES – “Narcissists Anonymous”
    11. The Exits – “You’ve Got To Have Money”
    12. Fruit Bats – “Tangie and Ray”
