May's mix is a smattering of new music with older classics in the same stylings. Songs were selected for flow as much as style. The songs span indie
, and folk
and some even combine one or more of the styles. I even get dangerously close to emo on it, but not too close since the most "sensitive" tracks come from Wilco
and John Butler
instead of Get Up Kids
. And of course Black Rebel Motorcylce Club
are always dressed in black and have tempers and Dinosaur Jr
loves Soap Operas so much that their history practically is one initself. Oh yeah, and lets not forget the band famous for its on-stage tantrums, At the Drive-In
. Maybe I've accomplished something transcendental here, almost metaphysical, making an Emo Mix by proxy of the band's biographies instead of their music. Either way, enjoy.
1. Medicine Cabinet Pirate
are a strange band formed in the early oughts. They combine a Pavement
aesthetic with the quirky writing of Minus the Bear
and Guided by Voices
to produce a unique lo-fi sound.
