Monthly Mix #19: September 2016

September 2016:
It's been a weird, scattered month.  I think the playlist reflects that.

1. Kishi Bashi - "Honeybody"
The closing track from K's new album, Sonderlust.  It exemplifies each stage of his solo career from modified violin loops to string quartets to electro-pop.

2. Kush Mody feat. Anderson Paak - "Freight Train"
Your monthly dose of Paak.

3. Terra Lightfoot - "No Hurry"
Just a really solid rock song.

4. Booker T. feat. Mayer Hawthorne - "Sound the Alarm"
I was generally let down by Hawthorne's latest LP, so I turned to this one from Booker T.'s 2013 record of the same name.

5. Amos Lee - "Lightly"
Amos makes a pretty compelling case for being alone.

6. Miniature Tigers - "Crying in the Sunshine"
I like hearing acoustic guitar in my Miniature Tigers songs.

7. Dawes - "One of Us"
I appreciate that Dawes are always expanding their sound.  This makes a bold statement as the opener on We're All Gonna Die.

8. UB40 - "The Way You Do the Things You Do"
The Temptations version was stuck in my head, but with the sax part from this cover.

9. Roosevelt - "Night Moves"
This will tide you over until the next Daft Punk or Phoenix album.

10. Radiohead - "True Love Waits"
I almost cried the first time I heard the studio version back in May.  It almost made it onto each monthly mix since, but it was never the right time.  It had to wait.

Monthly Mix #18: August 2016

August 2016:
These songs are all about how we deal with time.  Getting reflective as the summer winds down.

1. Animal Liberation Orchestra - "The Ticket"
Finally got to see ALO again.  I bought my ticket back in April.

2. Catfish & the Bottlemen - "7"
Van McCann's lyrics give a uniquely honest perspective on relationships.

3. Anderson Paak feat. BJ the Chicago Kid - "The Waters"
More Paak.  Yes, lawd!

4. Eric Krasno - "Waiting on Your Love"
A hunk of burning funk from the Soulive/Lettuce axeman.

5. Kevin Morby - "I Have Been to the Mountain"
Dig that solo.

6. Son Little - "Nice Dreams"
Son Little's debut LP from last year is still finding new ways to affect me.

7. G. Love & Special Sauce - "Nothing Else Quite Like Home"
I went home to Ocean City, MD for a few days.  G. Love was in town, too.

8. Coin - "It's a Trap"
This is poppier than I usually like and also not about Admiral Ackbar, but it's good.

9. Radiation City - "Milky White"
This is what the new Lucius record should've sounded like.

10. Pinegrove - "New Friends"
"The end of summer and I'm still in love with her."
