Friday Chill Music (February 1, 2008)

Friday Chill Music got a great response last week so I'll try it as a weekly feature for a while. If you have suggestions, please make a comment or shoot me an email at scott (at) gmail (dot) com.

The Shins - Gone For Good - I forgot how much I like the Shins and this song especially. They have better songs, but this one just felt right today. I saw them live in Chicago, along with Dutch Evans, and a big Kellogg crew. Incidentally, Dutch recognized the Chicago Tribune music critic next to us and we got to rap about his favorites. Pretty cool. Anyways, it was a great cincert at a cool, but creepy venue in the dead of winter. Listening to the Shins always brings back that great night while at Kellogg.

Eddie Vedder - Society - Vedder is the man. Amazing song off the Into the Wild soundtrack. Love listening to this song when driving at night. Can't wait to listen to it while driving to Tahoe in the summer time.

Vampire Weekend - Cape Cod Kwassa - Vampire Weekend is the best CD I've bought since Into the Wild. Love this song and I think it's going to have huge crossover appeal because I gave a copy to my stepdad who is 60+ and he loves it too. I wish I could buy stock in Vampire Weekend. How do we make something like that happen?
