Friday Chill Music (August 14, 2009)

It's been a nice August as the pace at work has slowed with half the world on vacation. I've been posting a lot because I've had more time to write and more importantly, read everything I can get my hands on. I hope you have enjoyed more material on Kenny Kellogg.

I've also begun to think about Sunday Morning 13, my annual chill music disc that I produce for friends. Throughout the year I stockpile songs I like and listen to them all the time. This year's list of potential songs is already in the 70's so there will be a lot of editing to get down to the inevitable 15 best. It's a lot of fun to put the disc together and you'll be getting it in early December.

Enough about me, let's get to the music.

Blind Pilot is a band I've discovered lately. Great mellow toons and I'm just starting to get into the lyrics. Here is one of my favorites, Poor Boy.

Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town is one of my favorite PJ songs and I'm ramping up my PJ listening in advance of Outside Lands. I'll be there and I hope you join me on Friday night.

Bands Like Girls With Bangs is a new music blog written by my friend Sarah. She's in the I'm All Ears music club and is on the cutting edge. I've never hear of Ha Ha Tonka and I'm not even sure why I like this song, I just do. It works.

Bone Tired is one of my favorite new Gomez songs. This guy has an amazing voice.

I've been jogging more and Closer by Kings of Leon is a great track to start a run with. It builds slowly and pumps me up in a deliberate, mysterious way. Hope you have a deliberate, mysterious weekend!
