2009’s Another Joy Mix

Now a mix that is truer to my roots… ANOTHER JOY.

I trust you’ll enjoy both.  Again, a track listing is below. I certainly could have gone on and on with both collections, but I limited myself to collections that would fit on a standard cd.

You can find out tomorrow who I regret not having room for.

Taido 2009 – ANOTHER JOY

1) While You Were Sleeping – Elvis Perkins

This one is actually off a previous release, Ash Wedenesday.  Sue me.

2) The Story I Heard – Blind Pilot

First heard them early in the year.  Got to see ‘em with Bob D. over Thanksgiving.

3) See the Enemy – Andrew Bird

Off an interesting EP (Fitz and the Dizzyspells) showing the evolution of a song.

4) I Gave You All – Mumford & Sons

Bobby says they have everything he likes in a band.

5) Islands, IS – Volcano Choir

A Justin Vernon project.  A bit of profanity in here.  Sorry.

6) Armistice – Phoenix

This was one of my top three songs off of one of my top three albums.

7) Conductor – We Were Promised Jetpacks

I think one month during the summer, this was the only album I listened to.

8) Swimming in the Flood – Passion Pit

These guys go both ways…  that is they do the Pure Joy and the other Joy.

9) Purgatory – Jeremy Larson

One guy compares Larson’s music to the ocean.  That’s about right.

10) Laughing With – Regina Spektor

“No one laughs at God in the hospital.”

11) Norway – Beach House

This is one of those songs that sounds slightly off… and therefore good.

12) Unfold – Julie Peel

Alone with your wife music…  whatever that means.

13) Roslyn – Bon Iver & St. Vincent

Criminal that this is off a soundtrack for a pre-teen movie.

14) Earthly Bodies – J. Tillman

“Glorious our earthly bodies rise.” More alone with your wife music.

15) Heartless (Kanye West Cover) – William Fitzsimmons

Saw Mr. Fitzsimmons in March.  Can’t get enough of The Beard.

16) In These Arms – The Swell Season

What’s not to like.

17) Mightiest of Guns – AA Bondy

He opened for Elvis Perkins.  Maybe should have been the other way around.

18) The Perfect Space – The Avett Brothers

“I wanna have friends that that will let me be; when being alone is all that I need.”
