*MP3: Tapes 'n Tapes - "Manitoba"
"some artists we've been listening to in the van this tour are brad mehldau, gilberto gil, neil young, white denim, animal collective, and some assorted classic rock. we typically have a rule that we try to listen to full records and then not do repeat listens but that rule may have been breached a few times. chris, our merch guy, likes to do a 'world music hour' when he drives -- sometimes this draws in listeners and other times it backfires and people put in ear plugs or headphones with other music on. drew, our sound guy, has been pushing lil wayne and t-pain really hard on us. i think we all like lil wayne to some degree, but the t-pain has caused some of us to draw a pretty strong line in the sand. i'm glad we got to touch on that in our tour diary video for norman, oklahoma. jeremy tried to introduce us to a 'cutting edge 80s light electronica' group called blue nile -- that too, was met with a bit of skepticism, but we all had a good laugh about it. we hung out with steve from the band, white denim, in austin and he gave us a copy of the mixes from their forthcoming album -- that's probably the one thing that we all uniformly loved and even freaked out about a little so we're all excited for them and for other folks to hear it eventually.
