on the road

first time stretching out the odometer on the Rabbit

Going to rock out with a few new albums along the way:

Animal Collective “Strawberry Jam” – upon strong recommendation from Garrison

The New Pornographers “Challengers” – cause I like harmony

Black Francis “Bluefinger” – initial impression is positive

Iron & Wine “Shepherd’s Dog” – first two spins, it sounds like a “grower” Potentially good.

Tegan & Sara “The Con” – Because Ray and Sheila made it sound great in SF

St. Vincent “Marry Me” – Tom keeps playing it at the studio, I like.

    Yay, Volkswagen. I’ve been a Jetta driver (ahem, the older models, not these new-fangled contraptions) for more than two years and I love it. I think the Rabbits are great, too.
    Excellent playlist; St. Vincent has garnered repeat privileges, and hopefully Iron & Wine grows on me enough to earn the same. I did pick up the new Radiohead yesterday; it’s has “grower” potential as well.
    Happy driving!
