I think we’re at the tail end of all the crazy spring of new album releases so I don’t have any new music to share, but the ladies of First Aid Kit made this awesome Spotify road trip playlist for Nylon‘s blog that I’m super into. And on that note, I wasn’t sure at first how I felt about their new album, but it’s finally obsessively grown on me. It’s a sad break up album, but I’m a huge sucker for those regardless of my mood, and they just hit it so well. I don’t think it’s quite as good as the last album if I had to compare the two as a whole, but it’s still fantastic. You can read about their choices for the mixtape here.
For those of you who can’t use Spotify, here’s the tracklist to make your own:
“Here I Am” by Adam Green and Binki Shapiro
“Diamond Day” by Vashtie Bunyan
“Song for Zula” by Phosphorescent
“”The Swimming Song” by Loudon Wainwright III
“”America” by Simon and Garfunkel
“I Dream a Highway” by Gillian Welch
“I’ve Been Everywhere” by Johnny Cash
“Perfect Day” by Lou Reed
“I Feel Just Like a Child” by Devendra Banhart
“Margins” by Amason
And as a side note, thank you all SO much for your response to my work post on Monday. I am so incredibly swamped right now I don’t have time to reply to everyone, but as always, the kind responses to personal posts like that remind me why I keep this ol’ blog up. I love you guys.
