January Mix

It was tough mustering up the energy to get the day started this morning. The park was empty, James was still sleeping, Luz was eating Cheerios all bleary-eyed and huggable in her p.j.s, and Christian was enjoying a leisurely morning drinking iced-coffee and reading the paper. The blow was softened just a bit by the fact that I won the first quarter 'square' in the office football pool - hooray for mad money - and Christian put together a January mix. Here it is:

1. My Girls - Animal Collective
2. Sleepyhead - Passion Pit
3. Warpaint - Billie Holiday
4. Flakes - Mystery Jet
5. Let Em In - Wings
6. Farther On - Vetiver
7. Norway - Beach House
8. Angels in the Snow - Elliot Smith :(
9. Harold T. Wilkins - Fanfarlo
10. Madonna of the Wasps - Robin Hitchcock
11. Memories of Places We've Never Been - Faunts
12. Tin Man - Animal Kingdom
13. Tiger Mountain Peasant Song - First Aid Kit
14. Everyday - Vetiver
15. Kick Drum Heart - The Avett Brothers
16. Knotty Pine - Dirty Projectors and David Byrne
17. Transparence - Asobi Seksu
18. Sad Birthday - Bombaldi
19. Wow - Cinerama
20. Rabbit Heart - Florence and the Machine

I have only had two listens straight through and so far the real loves for me are the last one - Rabbit Heart - not at all what I was expecting but very entertaining and the Wings song - it is wonderful and reminds me of when I was a kid.

Yum, iced coffee. Don't get me wrong, I love these twins, but I'll be making arrangements for a coffee IV drip after delivery.
