    Slowdive - Some Velvet Morning
    Lifetime - Boy's No Good
    The Hold Steady - Don't Let Me Explode
    The Knife - Heartbeats (Onemusic Session version)
    XTC - Making Plans for Nigel
    Band of Horses - The Funeral
    Talking Heads - Nothing But Flowers



    Nice list! never heard of Slowdive but I have to check out that version of Some Velvet Morning. Love that song.

    Got the tix a couple days ago; TBTBTM was my album of the year - simple, profound, righteous, and infinitely catchy. I'd throw in the slayer smiley here, but he's the best we've got and we don't want to wear him out. [​IMG]

    I'd say let's meet up, but that might make us the two biggest internet dorks of all time lololz, so I'm not going to identify myself in any way (anonymity or death!), and I promise to avoid eye contact if somehow I recognize you. That's just kind of how I roll...
