Music that makes me think of things.
Usually I drive where I’m going, so long trips are associated with particular albums that I play over and over again. This last trip towards the Pacific didn’t have so much music as a part of it since I was taking trains and don’t really believe in having ear buds plugged into my brain 24/7 (plus my hand-me-down Ipod-y thing currently only has Spanish Lessons on it, no music). But there are still songs that will remind me of this trip…
Like this one by Grizzly Bear (watch this PHAT fan video):
And then this jam (listen here):
La Roux – Bulletproof
Those are for SF. Then for Eugene there’s this one (listen):
Lupe Fiasco – Superstar
Thanks, CA and OR friends, for keeping a beat in my step. Love you guys.
