Now Playing

  1. Won't you be my wagon wheel?
  2. Johnny Winter And — Live
    Totally stolen from my college radio station. It's okay, they had two copies. This is a killer album, by the way.
  3. Led Zeppelin II
    Holding my breath waiting for the call-and-response guitars bouncing across the channels at the end of "What Is and What Should Never Be".
  4. Shye Ben Tzur, Johnny Greenwood and the Rajasthan Express — Junun
    Saw the documentary by Paul Thomas Anderson and knew within ten minutes that I had to get the soundtrack.
  5. Radiohead—OK Computer
    I don't know anything about these guys, but people seem to love this thing so I figured I'd give it a try. @theshome says it's good, anyway.
  6. Chris Forsyth—Soft Paranoid Solar Run Down
    A little bit obsessed at the moment. Lush gypsy trance music. Sounds trippy and romantic, like a multicolor comic book woman licking your eyeball clean.
  7. The Octopus Project—Memory Mirror
    Do people know these guys? Sort of like psychedelic pop music, in the neighborhood of Stereolab maybe. They are A DELIGHT. Here's a live version of one of the songs off the new album:
  8. The Rolling Stones—Emotional Rescue
    She don't have to be five foot ten or a blonde or brunette she don't have to be no social hostess
  9. Bob Dylan—John Wesley Harding
  10. Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass—Going Places
    Summer Sunday music.
  11. Cave — Threacre
    So my type of thing. Makes me want to have a tripped-out pool party where people wander back and forth in a swimsuited chlorine daze, others on wicker chairs nodding their heads and digging the incense and African masks. The badminton game lapses into slack conversation, rackets hanging down as the players stare skyward and ogle the dusk.
  12. Anthony Phillips — The Geese & the Ghost
    1977. Wistful rainy morning music.
  13. Yes — Relayer
    1974. There was an article in The Atlantic about how prog rock is the whitest music in existence. I guess they're not wrong. Still, though, to me Yes is on another plane entirely. You can call them prog, but really they're just Yes.
