Coral wanted me to make her a playlist to walk to work with.  She said it had to be good and contain NO My Chemical Romance…SWA?  Is that even possible?

I thought about maybe playing her a set of top 40 hits because she likes that kind of music… but seeing as she can jam that out any time in Honda…I’d play some songs that might be new to her, or a re-acquantance.  She is off to Sasquatch, so its all Sasquatch bands, except the first song, which is Passion Pit “Take a Walk.”  Get it?

Diving through the lineup for Sasquatch this year… lots of gems to chose from.  One of the artists is electronic dance music-olgist? Pretty Lights.  I punched up his 2006 hit “Finally Moving.”

Pretty Lights – “Finally Moving”

Just hang on one darn second Pretty Lights… that’s a Flo Rida song!  I meant Avicii song, Levels! No wait… Doi-Ong or was it Rappin-4-Tay?

Oh right… it was Etta James.

Etta James – “Something’s Got A Hold On Me”

“Don’t need a glock, but I bought one just in case. Sucker trying to stop me from pursuing my paper chase.”  Rappin 4 Tay, you got it figured out.

Go with yourself.

DJ Notes

The first couple tracks Coral and I like because they sample or feature some fine classics. Madcon has some Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons going on, and Kristina jams out the Dave Clark Five.  Nice.  Just the other day I was thinking that DC5 would make the base for a fine modern dance song.  I guess I was not the only person to think it.

Phoenix is so hot right now.  The hipsters like it, The Zone is jamming it and the record is a gorgeous spin.

I heard a fairly in depth interview with Katy Perry on Sirius Hits 1 on our drive home from Sasquatch that made me like this chick a little bit more.

Coral loves Bat for Lashes and trolling the internets the otherday I found some remixes of her fave BFL track.  The EP also had a cover of the Cure’s “A Forest” which would be worth your time if you’re a fan.

Go with yourself.

01) The Dudes
02) Japanadroids
03) The Airborne Toxic Event
04) The Replacements
05) Peter Gabriel
06) James Taylor
07) Phoenix
08) Reverend Horton Heat
09) Flo Rida
10) Pinback

Some of my faves spinning on the home hard drive according my Last FM page.

The new Dudes song “Pretty Lies” is so darn good, it has inspired me to fire up anything Dudes that I have at home, anytime I am at home.  The only reason I don’t listen to the dudes right now, is if I have Vancouver fuzz masters Japanadroids going, or “1901” from Phoenix.

Ringtones are dumbest (or maybe greatest?) invention.

Now, I value my money.  When I am walking down Douglas Street and some man puts out his hand to ask for money, I say, “sorry man, I value my money.”  You’d never catch me… maybe… lighting money on fire.  Wouldn’t happen.  Coral wanted to buy some jars today to put the coffee in to keep it fresh, they cost like, $3 or $4 bux maybe? maybe?  I was all, “no, I value my money.”  And after all that… the Airborne Toxic Event battles through my strong defense and I download “Sometime Around Midnight.”  The charge?  Three dollars and fifty cents.  What do I get?  15 seconds of the intro!  WTF?  I can download the song, all of it, in stunning MP3 quality for a buck!

Burned… I had to download another ringtone… so yeah, now when you phone, 15 seconds of “Panic Switch” blares at me and I’m $7 poorer.  And hopefully wiser.  RINGTONE!

I think, when I’m hanging out with the Airborne Toxic Event at the Sasquatch Music fesitval next weekend, I’ll mention something to them.

The Replacements are a band I play when I am sad.  I was sad after the Canucks lost to Chicago last week.

My cousin Monica is getting married!  whoa!  to a cop!  whoa.  Chris (the cop) is a good man, he showed me how to make a grown man cry with a simple maneuver to the nose.  Seriously, he made me cry, it works.  On their wedding website I A: RSVP’d (I’ll be rocking the stuffed chicken) and B: listened to some Peter Gabriel.  They have one of my favourite songs, “In Your Eyes” streaming.

James Taylor?  SWA?  I like him… but I don’t know why I played so much last week.  weird.

Phoenix is so hawt right now on The Zone @ 91-3.  Sometimes I bring my work home with me.  The video is that Youtube clip waiting for you at the top, great view… so if you skipped it because you think your time is more valuable than that three minute gem, your wrong, its not, click the video already.

The Rev came on after something else I was listening to, and I kept that party going.

Flo Rida.  Yeah. What?  I like him.

and I end my playlist with some Pinback, because…

Go with yourself.

Some music getting some play on the home stereo over the past week here at the Baker homestead.

01) Frightened Rabbit
02) New York Dolls
03) MGMT
04) The National
05) All State Champion
05) Mission of Burma
07) Metric
08) The Killers
09) The Animals
09) Flo Rida

Flo Rida?  I know right…. but I bought this new single of his that features or samples or he riffs off “Right Round” as in…

How can you not love the song?

New York Dolls had a strong week because that record is new for me.  I bought it after watching the New York Doll documentary the other day.

Madelyn and I jammed out the MGMT, she seems to like that band (and oddly, The Layne Mitchel Podcast?  The Rick Lee prank calling Rick Lee… yup as funny as it sounds).

The other odd one showing up this week is The Animals.  I dunno why, just went on a Animals kick last week.  I think I heard the song “I Got to get outta this place” on the TV somewhere and it triggered a need for further audio exploration.
