Winter has set in and I'm on a hunt for a pair of engine red socks.
I've finally compiled the mix tape for you guys.
I had to stop myself in adding a ton more!
These are on my current playlist.
Growing up in the late 90s, my top five would have to include bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Hole, Suede, Third Eye Blind, New Radicals, Blur, Placebo and I love Fleetwood Mac.. Stevie Nicks and if you listen to the first track, their singer reminds me of a young Stevie. Then the gradual transition to bands like Rilo Kiley, Stellastarr, The Kills, The Raveonettes, Arcade Fire, Spoon, The Cribs. Listening to obscure bands on the net is what I do best, I can never figure out the lyrics for some, especially for the 9th track here, this is how I usually sing along." Eh, oh.. Eh our lights are go, don't wanna let go until we say so. " Bobbing my head to the beat, obviously not making any sense.
