The Beat Frequency - April 16, 2010

I'm really bad at updating blogs.  It's kind of thing of mine to have a blog, write all the posts except the last few and just stop.  My new goal is to actually finish this one.

The night before this show I went out to a birthday party for Jenn from Wye Oak at the Golden West Cafe in Baltimore.  It was pretty cool.  Friend of the band Mickey Free performed along with a few other acts for the birthday girl.  The party was pretty fun, there was a giant moose head, beer, a guy with a tattoo of Talking Heads lyrics ("There's a city in my mind" if you were wondering), and decently good times.  I played the Mickey Free remix of "That I Do" by Wye Oak in honor of the event.

Darwin Deez's "Radar Detector" was a solid part of my playlist this time of year.  It's cute and bouncy. 

The Dirty Projectors' "Two Doves" was played with Nico's "These Days" because I had recently found out "Two Doves" contained a few lyrical references to "These Days", a classic Jackson Browne song I've known since I was very little.  (He wrote that song when he was in high school.  Deep stuff.  My mom's a big Jackson Browne fan.  We named our dog after him.)

Mates of State's cover of Girls' "Laura" was a really good one during this time of year too.  I like the cover way better.
