I’m a fan of build up, and when you’re in the van it’s good to let that thing warm up. So tonight we start our playlist off with the king and queen of build up with Sonic Youth’s I Love You Golden Blue. The jam is just so deep and I love following the melodies. Now that Sonic Youth got you in a trance state and the van is warm, we follow it up with some crunchy & crisp guitar licks from Khruangbin’s Dern Kala (released back in 2018).
Now we get into some more melty goodness with Django Django’s Found You, followed by Cage The Elephant ft. Iggy Pop in a song from early 2020 called, Broken Boy – Great Collaboration!
We’re warmed up and feeling good, we dive into the indie rock tracks, with scattered finds. Bonny Doon kicks off the stretch with Never Been To California, followed by one of my favorite tracks from 2014, Orange Juice by Stanley Brinks and the Wave Pictures. I think we can all relate to the lyrics:
The radio sucks balls
I don’t relate to any of the music they’re playing at all
But I’ll get by with a little bit of you
Alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, ephedrine, and orange juice
The rest, well you’re just going to have to find out enjoy the listen!
