Car Tunes

Aside from frequent listens to new releases on Mog or Spotify when I’m piddling about the house, the place where I love to treat myself to good tunes is in the car. My car player isn’t the greatest; it’s got good sound but it it just a basic 6-CD changer with no randomizing capability (or, maybe it does, but I’ve never learned it.) Anyway, I like to load up the changer with CDs that work well together. 

Today, I drove to Hanscom AFB on a mission to fill the fridge and the pantry, as well as to stock the liquor cabinet. On the drive, I listened to these:

Trampled By Turtles – Stars and Satellites (HUGE thumbs up. When that CD ends, I just want to hear it again.)

Aunt Martha – Bloodshot – (It’s an EP, and it’s brilliant. Awesome follow after the TbT CD, too.)

The Decemberists The King Is Dead –(Last year’s release still resides in the car player. Yes, it’s that good, IMO.)

The Band – The Band (I needed to hear some and it fits right in with the contemporary CDs in rotation. Still hurts a bit when I hear Levon singing.)

I had two others in, but didn’t hear them today, since there’s hardly any skipping of songs.

The Avett Brothers – I And Love And You

Nickel Creek – This Side

I’m never paying for satellite, as long as I have CDs to love.

    Hmmm—that’s a pretty nice stack of CDs. Sorry you didn’t get around to the Avetts or the Nickel Creek this time — for me that would be a reason to pass the driveway and just keep going. The CDs that currently live in my car are M. Ward’s Heartland Companion, The Shins’ Port of Morrow, and Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Dulcinea (and I got to TTWS via Works Progress Administration, which I first listened to because of Nickel Creek’s Sara Watkins — pretty good DNA trail there!)

    The Decembrist have been constantly sitting in my changer as well… great collection.

    I see you like the Avett Brothers. I often spin “The Second Gleam” while driving around. Probably their best album.

    4 years later…different car…and I have Sirius XM radio. Never say never.
