One Hundredth Post Day. (a mix for you.) i'll tell you what - today, life is good. it's absolutely gorgeous, the humidity wave is over, we're not at the Pitchfork Music Festival (like everyone else) but we are home, enjoying our own home-home town's humble festivities... and it doesn't get a whole hell of a lot better than this.
conveniently, we have another reason to celebrate on top of it all -
what you read now is our one-hundredth post. that's right, push you over with a feather, i know. all of you seasoned bloggers may scoff but we're proud of our little hundred and on we go. but first, a celebratory mix! holy shit!
::::100th post: the mix.zip
songs were chosen based solely on what we've found and/or blogged about since the birth of Noise For Toaster. we left out a ton of favorites in order not to overwhelm you (or ezarchive). enjoy.
here's the tracklisting:
The Minders - "There Goes My Formula!"
- - this is one of the best intros to an album i've heard in a while, and this is very key for me.
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Pangea
- - this followed nicely, and the pop is a great jump-start to the mix.
Regina Spektor - Hotel Song
- - frequently passed over on the album, i love this track of Reg's.
Orillia Opry - Lucky Wind
- - though i never posted on the band way back at the beginning of June, i think this is great folk and shows a lot of talent for such young kids.
Office - The Big Bang Jump!
- - kicking it up a notch... great eighties influence, good jam. yo.
The Weepies - Take It From Me
- - how much do i love the sound of her voice? one of the most played songs on my iTunes.
Cansei de Ser Sexy - Music Is My Hot Hot Sex
- - for all the hype surrounding this Sub Pop signing, they really live up to it all. this track is both funny and genius.
Feist - Mushaboom
- - bringing this one back because Open Season re-got me into it. oh feist.
The Long Winters - Hindsight
- - by far my favorite song from the newest album. John Roderick is a lyrical mastermind.
Psapp - Tricycle
- - slowing it down to the sweetness of their noise pop. love that.
Lily Allen - Everything's Just Wonderful
- - yeah, hype... but come on. summer fun. this song is (per the usual) both funny and catchy. there you are.
Shapes and Sizes - Island's Gone Bad
- - a band perfect for Asthamtic Kitty, i love the transition in this song - and kind of like everyone else, i love the female vocals.
Cold War Kids - Hospital Beds
- - if it's cliche for this song to be my favorite, i don't mind. see them live.
Apollo Sunshine - Phyllis
- - hands down, best Boston band out there right now. i can't believe there isn't a hype for these guys yet. this cut is to wind up the album to craziness...
Boat - Free The Birds In The Stall
- - and now settle, because pop masters Boat will sail you to indie euphoria.
tadaa. have fun with all of that... you know we are.
