Well, with the Crane and Baby flying around over Canadia, delivering large sticks to their respective nests, I decided it’d be kinda stellar to do what’s known in the music blogging world as… “NOT DROP THE EMMER-EFFING BALL WHILE THE BOSS IS GONE!!!”…
And I was gonna review all sorts of new, fun shit… really, I was… but then I was attacked by a bunch of beautiful-but-annoying cottonwood tree-sperm, and some good old-fashioned summertime lonely to boot!
Besides, I’m usually a few days/weeks/months behind all my other crazy peeps in delving into the new muzaks. So instead, I decided to share a little sec-a-ret with you.
Ever seen that one movie? I believe it’s called, “The Truman Show” with that one Carey guy. Well, at one point he bumps into this fine young thang at the library (hawt!) and she’s wearing a little button that says..
Well, my secret is that… are you ready for this?? I know how it’s going to end!!
Please stand up with me and give a little hop as we do this thing…!
The TSURURADIO Community Presents… AdventurerNeil’s “How’s it going to END?? Well, We End Up Together and I’ll Take Care Of You If You Ask Me To!!!” Mixtape!!!
1. Beach House – Take Care
2. The New Pornographers – We End Up Together
3. Avi Buffalo – Remember Last Time
4. Flaming Lips – Approaching Pavonis Mons By Balloon (Utopia Planitia)
5. Her Space Holiday – Manic Expressive [Exit]
6. Dntel – Last Songs
7. Dirty Projectors – Useful Chamber
8. Ben Kweller – Falling

10. Devendra Banhart – The Body Breaks
11. Yo La Tengo – Take Care
12. The Shins – Those To Come
13. Jimmy Eat World – Goodbye Sky Harbor
Astute students of indie muzaks will note that most of these songs are the ending songs of their respective albums. There’s quite a bit of magic to be found in last songs! It was somewhat difficult to make a coherent mixtape out of last songs, but I feel like I did a decent job of making a memorable journey for ya.
I still can’t shake the feeling that I left out a few essentials, though… if you care to, please comment and let me know what your favorite ends to your favorite albums are!!
PS. If my bandwidth gets all pillaged, either mediafire it or come back tomorrow and try yerself ‘agin!
PPS. More mixtapes to come. (if you go to the dance with me)
