April 2005 Playlist

It's No Good

As you can probably tell, the extra space on my iPod is being filled up with a bunch of CD's in my collection that I didn't have space for until now, so this month's playlist reflects some of the things I've recently added to my iTunes library. But enough explanation, time to give the people what they want:

The Bravery - Unconditional (MP3) - Two things that are unconditional for me.
1) I effing hate Bernie Williams
2) Hideki Matsui scares me every time he steps to the plate.

Bloc Party -Modern Love (MP3) - Playing the Black Cat this weekend. I still haven't bought the CD.

Cartel - Fleets (MP3) - I saw these guys play a week or so ago and they were the goods. Download it and check out one of DC's best local bands. Very Doves-y.

Phoenix - Holdin On Together (MP3) - Phoenix rocked my world in concert last week. Those Maroon 5 comparisons may not be too far off, but these guys are French, so you expect them to be douchebags.

Feist - One Evening (MP3) - Big ups to Coolfer for turning me onto Feist compliments of his "Best of 04" mix. I had prepared to write a long diatribe about how if Feist isn't signed to a huge American record deal and if this song doesn't go to #1 in the Hot 100 that the music industry as a whole is just a sham. I still think the song is that good, but I've calmed down about it a bit.

iTunes says I've played this song 26 times since I loaded it onto my computer on March 25th. Multiply that by two for the times I've listened to it in the car and by two again for all the times I've rocked it on my iPod. Simply put, this is the best song I've heard all year (even if, technically, it came out last year). Make room on the blogger bandwagon for me! Britney, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, they all wish they had a song as great as this. Download it and see for yourself. When you're done, check out the history of Feist.

Spoon tour dates and a download to boot.

Best. Photo. Ever.

You don't have to live in DC to appreciate the DCeiver. I'm just glad he's on my side. Literally (sorry, couldn't resist).

Two wasted hours of my life. And I don't want to talk about last night. College basketball isn't even over yet. I'm not ready for baseball.

Tonight I see Deron Williams d'ing up Rashad McCants and Raymond Felton with at least 6 turnovers (if not more). Sean May will have a big game but it will all be for nought. And despite all the articles saying that Bruce Weber didn't recruit this Illinois team, I will keep searching the media for articles that point out that Roy Williams didn't recruit this UNC team, but I won't find them. It's curious that Matt Doherty, whom I believe is a basketball analyst/announcer, hasn't been seen once this week and given kudos for the team he assembled at UNC. But I digress...

I still can't believe it's opening day. I still have my Red Sox stuff from the World Series up in my cubicle. I guess it's time to redecorate.

Feist is signed to Interscope/Cherry Hill in the U.S. You probably won't get a #1 single, but Borders and Starbucks will probably sell the crap out of it.

But, this article says the new label is called Cherry Tree, not Cherry Hill.

yeah, um, Roy's gonna get all the credit for winning with the team recruited by Matt. it's sad, but true. I'm glad I'm not the only one annoyed about this. at any rate, time to move on... Go Yanks! ;)
