    1. Heaven
    Rough Shop is a local band, and I like local music. Plus this is a good version of a good song. And what better way to start than with a little piece of heaven?

    2. I Burn Today
    Frank Black sets a great mood. "Our house/was filled with many birds/She said to me, I can undersand their words"

    3. See the Sky About to Rain
    One of my favorite titles, ever. Mellow and melancholy.

    4. Streets
    Another local band, now defunct. How sad is that?

    5. Can I Be Free from Crying
    Mellow, melancholy reggae.

    6. Fear Is A Man's Best Friend
    Sometimes melancholy changes into, well, fear. But is that a bad thing? I love this take on the emotion. What an artist John Cale is. The end of this song astounds me.

    7. Big Empty Field (No. 2)
    The Swell Maps are famous, right? I like this groove, too, and since we've broken with the melancholy we may as well have fun. Good energy. I love little sounds that you don't usually hear, like the sound of a guitar pick scraping a guitar string. …
