Rules: music device, etc. set on random/shuffle/dj - First ten songs, no skipping. List them here and comment on them. Just a great way to get to know other people and maybe discover some new (or old) music!
Here we go!
1. U2 - City of Blinding Lights - no secret that this is my favorite band. Just a really solid song from a solid album. Can't wait for the new album in less than a month!
2. T-Bone Burnett - Hold On Tight - Haven't listened to enough T-Bone lately. Really wish he didn't wait so long between CDs...and I need to get his most recent release still.
3. Chris Taylor - The River - really cool singer/songwriter from Texas. Interviewed him for an article a number of years ago. Used to be the lead singer of Love Coma (which also featured Matt Slocum of Sixpence). He has a nice sound.
4. Mute Math - Plan B - These guys are amazing musicians, and great live. I would love to get them around here some time. Really looking forward to their new CD. If you ever get a chance to check out their live DVD, do it!
5. Bob Dylan - I and I - I love this song from Infidels, an often overlooked Dylan album. This guy continues to put out great stuff.
6. Appleseed Cast - Moment #72 - Been following these guys from their earliest days on Deep Elm records. Still like what I hear. Just this morning I heard they had a new album coming out, so I'll be anxious to hear what it's like. They began in the old-school emo tradition. Curious what they sound like now.
7. 764-Hero - Photographic Evidence - This is a really solid song, probably my favorite from the album. I think this was from their last album. I'd love to hear more of their stuff.
8. The Smoking Pokes -Pretty Pathetic - this is the live version from the combo cd/dvd. The audience just sings along nicely. Check these guys out. Josh Caterer has a beautiful voice.
9. Play Radio Play - 1-2-3 Entertain - Pretty cool music, especially when you realize it is basically the product of one guy...a teenager, recorded in his home. Missed them when they came to the Chameleon last year.
10. The National - Lucky You - I like what I hear from this band, but need to try more of their stuff. I like the lead singer's voice.
