Ancient Indian Wizard Makes A Summer Short List!

The Tallest Man On Earth - Love Is All
Sometimes a lot of websites, NPR and my friends suggest a band or musician that I might like and I seem to inexplicably take a stand and not listen to said band. I'm not sure I even mean to or not. Who knows if it's leo pride, laziness or me just plain being a dip shit (most likely it's a combo of all three).. Anyways after jumping on the late late freight I am enamored. Viva Sweden!

lyrics for break up letters "Here come the tears, but like always I let them go"

Surfer Blood - Slow Jabroni
Shitty band name, shittier album cover.. great songs..

lyrics for a long day "take it easy on me"

Samantha Crain - Santa Fe
Evil internet marketeers who stole my privacy suggested that I might like this lady and I totally do!

lyrics for a saturday morning "you know the way I get when I haven't had my coffee yet"

The Shout Out Louds - Show Me Something New
More swedes and more HD video! Before I broke my clavicle I experienced many sublime moments speeding through the redwoods on my bike while this song played.. I'll be back out there and I'm bringing this jam with me..

dreamy high school crush lyrics "you have an eye for fashion, darlin' / I'm sitting in my room and let the disc go by"

Vampire Weekend - Horchata
This is hands down the party jam of 2010 in our house. It evokes some type of spastic dancing out of each family member.. I also totally love horchata and always buy it at the burrito store that is right around the corner from my house.. not that burrito store but this newer all natural one that is also really good. I still love the other one too though! What I'm trying to say is that I bet if you graphed horchata sales before and after this song they would have definitely shot up (especially in the 3 block radius around my house)

the way I feel right before I drink more horchata "Here comes a feeling you thought you'd forgotten"

Good list by the way.

I'll have to finally check out this Tallest Man On Earth. Brian's been talking about him during MusicfestNW.

AIW! Thanks for getting your thoughts down and showing your clavicle who's boss. Mad props for the bambino typing this up sans typos. He's ready for middle school already! haha
