fine folk

october music mix is here! this past month i’ve been spending a lot of quality time with my ipod listening to tunes on my own – in airports, on long flights, walking around in a strange city, driving in my car… and i kept returning to the same kind of music. would i call it folk? perhaps. folk rock? indie folk? indie folk rock? indie folk rock pop? indie folk rock alt-country lo-fi pop? at the very least it’s nice music accompanied by strumming guitars. or banjos. sometimes harmonicas. maybe even accordions. and pianos. a couple even have synthesizers. and lots of harmonising. uuuuuh…

a new music mix for you! mostly newish music, but one old (superb) paul simon tune thrown in for good measure. song list is as follows:

blue ridge mountains

one of my favourite fleet foxes songs is blue ridge mountains, which i’ve been listening to a lot lately. so i decided to see if there was perhaps a music video attached, but instead found this amazing live performance that they did in an abandoned wing of the grand palais in paris. wow, gives me goosebumps. the song starts at about 3:30

glastonbury 2009

glasto-01


i know a lot of people prefer the smaller fests (like bestival) – but wow glasto looked pretty awesome this year. and BLUR headlined! i would definitely have gone just for that. amazing pictorial from the boston globe.
