I think's possibly been over a year since I've posted anything about music to this blog. Which is insane, because I started it to write about music I listen to, and I certainly still listen, constantly. Probably more now that I have that looooong train ride to sit and enjoy an album.
Here's the mix that I listened to this morning. I've FINALLY got one device that does phone calls and plays music... and it's not an iphone. It's a blackberry flip, and in a week or so I'll write a review of it- I'm still figuring a few things out. I originally wrote about my desire for this kind of gadget in March 2005
. Hello progress, nice to see you three and a half years later.
So gadget snark aside, this could almost be a St Patricks day mix. I've been a bit heavier than usual into the Celtic punk/folk thing since our trip to the virginia beach irish festival 4 weeks ago.
- Phoenix Park - The Tossers
A new album to me, which was stupid because they're a wonderful band and it's been out since forever. I love the beautiful melody. I want to wake up to this song every morning
- Smokin' Bowl - The Real McKenzies
Two summers ago, walking down 8th ave in NYC, I remember a few weeks where I played this song over and over and over and over several more times.
- Rise Above - Black Flag
see above comment, sans the hook
- A Rainy Night In Soho - The Pogues
Rum, Sodomy and the Lash... is, I don't know... perfect. I adore this album. I know this is considered an "important" album, but I have such a deep personal connection with it. Walking in the evening, listening to this- I love most of the songs on here too much.
- Upstarts and Broken Hearts - Drop Kick Murphys
One of my favorite songs ever
- Blue Period - Smithereens
amazing use of strings. I listen to this one over and over and over.
- Galway Girl - Town Pants
they played this at the festival, and wow- the hook from this one got stuck in my head for a few days
