A weekly sampler of what we're listening to (new and old), and what we think you might like, too.


HA HA TONKA -- "St. Nick on the Fourth in a Fervor"
As I wind down my last couple weeks in Missouri, it's only appropriate that I share my favorite song from my favorite MO band. Love the local color and reference ("KK highway" is a real place, as is Ha Ha Tonka itself) as well as the bitchin' guitar lick and four-part harmonies. Excellent Ozarks driving music.

BLACK MOUNTAIN -- "No Satisfaction"
Black Mountain's debut doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. Its styles vary widely. "No Satisfaction" sounds like little else on the record. I return to it often and like to share it with friends.

PETER, BJORN & JOHN -- "Young Folks"
I loved last week's "Amsterdam" so much I put it on a mix. I'd heard this song before, but never put the title to the artist. Tony pointed it out to me at work...and I've listened to it almost exclusively since then.

PIERRE HENRY -- "Psyché Rock"
To celebrate the return of Futurama to television (June 24 at 10:00 p.m.)

OS MUTANTES -- "Panis Et Circenses"
No comment.

NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL -- "Holland 1945"
I haven't listened this album in 2 years. I randomly re-discovered it in my music player the other night and gave it a listen, only to realize why it represents everything good about music and songwriting.

Great mix. Except I'm pretty sure the Futurama song was messed up, or someone did a really really terrible remix.

I enjoyed the Peter Bjorn & John songs these past two weeks. I also have definitely heard this week's one but didn't know it was them.

The pre-Futurama theme clip should be fixed now.
