MP3 & Playlist for Lost & Found, 03/23/09

this is how I apologize
and light one up

Hookin' & Slingin'

I'm not the type of mug to stand on the street corner wearing a sandwich board, or pressing pamphlets into disinterested palms to get my point across - so let's just think of this like you and me are 2 pals on adjoining barstools, all familiar-like and naturally sympathetic. So here's what I got: 2 hours of your time and the most interesting music of the 60's and thereabouts that I could muster up on such short notice. I'm not making excuses - I've got the goods. Deep soul, drumbreak-laden funk, psychedelic epics, dusty folk duos, glam punk excess ... and that's just the tip of the icepick.

Click on the Kritters 45 below to get things going. And that pamphlet I didn't jam into your sweaty palm? It's reprinted below for navigational purposes at your privileged perusal.

actually, only 2 hours ... but it can feel like days

always in her element
pour a drink on it

Urban Legend

So maybe that guy she's hanging around with is a little punchy, so what? He's on the square and she knows the score. There isn't any kind of game they can't run down together - the dancefloor R&B stuff, the strumming folk rock sound, the heavy acid riffs of psychedelia. These two hit the party and those doors blow back. I'm just here to tell their story, and tell it in music. Feeling lost? Well, get found and click that Daydreams 45 below. Daydreams, brother - that's what I'm selling and the price is nothing but your time. Have a click and hear the visions I see.
