Rainy Day.

Hi Tape-clubbers, it's Dr. Thunder. This is my first tape club post. I'm feeling a little nervous. I'm all shiney. I'm fresh out of the box - still smell a bit like plastic. I hope I don't let all you kids down with the first post...anyway - for those of you I don't know. Come over and say hi. Be a friend. For those of you I do - nice to see you again. (Anglos, Taffy, etc)

After going thru some of the posts - I've really liked alot of the music tossed up, but I'm changing it up. Its a grey day today. I'm in a grey mood. Feeling low. So, I thought a rainy day mix might be just what the doctor ordered. So that being said - sit back - pour a glass of wine - watch the rain and listen to the music.

1. Milosh - Your Taste - Beautifully done. Mike Milosh is one of my favorites.
2. The National - Wasp Nest - Get over here I want to kissyour skinny throat.
3. The Guggenheim Grotto -A Lifetime In Heat- KCRW whores. But I still love them.
4. Sparrow House - When I Am Gone - Side Project of someone I really like - but I forget who.
5. FC Kauna - Hayling - Ripped this track from the beginning of Layer Cake. Pretty song.
6. Clearlake - You Can't Have Me - Mellow. Nice. One big swell. Just go with it.
7. David Pajo - manson twins - super overdubbed vox. lovely song.
8. Paul Duncan - Swam an Ocean - I love pretty much everything this guy does. He adds some really cool elements to the production of his tracks - while maintaining a minimal esthetic.
9. Elliott Smith - Condor Ave - One of his earlier tracks - incredible. Perfect for today.
10. Brian Eno - And then so clear... - Clearly.
11. I am Robot and Proud - Good Sleep
12. Iron & Wine - Love and Some Verses - Amazing to me that some people haven't yet heard Sam. If Elliott Smith grew up in South Carolina instead of Portland.
13. Nina Simone - I Want a Little Suger in my Bowl - No description needed.
