I drove up to Minneapolis this weekend to visit my Uncle, Emerson Biggins, and to visit/record some hip-hop freestyle battles with Mr. Furious. This is what I listened to:
On the way there:
The Return; Danger, Danger Silent Stranger
Kula Shaker; I forget, but the record with “Mystical Machine Gun” on it
Simon and Garfunkel: Greatest Hits
The Streets; A Grand Don’t Come For Free
Dumb and Dumber Soundtrack
Kara’s Flowers; Stagg Street Recordings
On the way back:
Spoon; Girls Can Tell
Elliott Smith; XO
Built to Spill; Perfect From Now On
Kanye West; The College Dropout
That’s all I can remember. The two soundtracks were a weird fit, but the Dumb and Dumber one is genuinely good, I think, with some tracks by Echobelly, Pete Drodge, Crash Test Dummies (I like them; get over it) and the Butthole Surfers. Footloose was put on because Lara sings “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” like it was her job. My favorite record to listen to was either Spoon (because it’s new) or Kara’s Flowers (because I hadn’t heard it in a long time).
Favorite quote: “No one wants to hear what you dreamt about unless you dreamt about them” – Made Up Dreams, Built to Spill.
