Indie 69 September 2011 New Music Playlist
Letter Nate than Beaver, as they say.
Oh that cannot be right. Isn’t that what they say?
Oh, yeah. Better late than never. Very true, unless you’re waiting for an organ.
Minimalist cover art this month, eh? It’s a new trend for me, I think. For a while anyway. This image caught my eye, as I have been reading a few non-fiction books covering the influences of 60’s culture on science and technology. The best so far has been “What the Dormouse Said – How the 60’s Counterculture shaped the personal computer” (non-affiliate links to Amazon), but I’m still digging into “How the Hippies Saved Physics: Science, Counterculture, and the Quantum Revival” and really enjoying it. So when I saw this GEM of an old kit computer, AND it said “69” on the display, I stopped looking. Perfection.
If someone tries to tell you the 60’s was a waste of a decade, slam a pie in that person’s face. That person is full of poop. Why not full of pie as well? Mmmm… pie.
Oh, I almost forgot to make excuses.
Here it goes…..
Umm, my dog ate my playlist. Traffic was HORRIBLE! I just found out that one guy, yeah, who used to clip my uncle’s toenails and collect them in jars? Yeah he like, died and stuff. We were so close. TERRORISM! (was scary) My boss made me stay late ’cause Greg called in sick. My socks didn’t match and it took me 14 days to find a pair. I was naming my new band and all I could come up with were combinations of the words tropical, party, vacation, summer, youth, young, camp, ocean, lagoon, river, a whole bunch of Canadian provinces/cities, and lake. Weird. Kept. me. busy. ( is it just me?? or does anyone else notice this stuff?? ) My playlist fell of the back of my truck. No, seriously. And I don’t even have a truck. Wow.
The truth is actually a tiny bit personal and a little of the same old, same old problems with Internet, memory cards/sticks, etc. When I finally did have time, I didn’t want to do a rush job. It ended up taking a lot longer than I’d expected (or am used to). So there’s that. Seems to be yet another trend. Note to self: Start earlier AND never type “note to self” again….. again.
The good news is…. great playlist. 138 tracks! Another double-sizer.
You can get it …HERE… and in all of the usual dens.
Sorry if you spot any dupes/repeats (songs that have already been featured in previous months). I do my best to catch them. But there are 2 or 3 tracks in there that are not particularly new. Just new for me, and hopefully you too.
See you here and in October. I’ve gotta get to recording *Camp Alberta Lake Summer Youth Party Vacation Lagoon Kids‘ debut E.P. , tentatively titled “The End Of Summer Bonfire Singalong E.P.” Or maybe it’ll be self-titled. See you here (perhaps) soon and in October for sure.
