Songs for Saturday

I decided to create a nice soundtrack to my weekend and figured I’d share it with my reader(s). This one has a couple of rare/hard-to-find tracks mixed in with some of the same culprits from my last mixtape. The bands who are making their second appearance are from the must-have albums released this year (The Hold Steady, Future Islands, LCD Soundsystem, and The Black Keys). I’m one of those suckers who still purchase music and I can tell you that the four aforementioned records are superb from front to back.

This compilation serves a nice soundtrack to any Saturday activity so burn it to a CD and enjoy! Don’t forget to buy these albums if you like what you hear.

  1. Dr. Dog“Where Did All the Time Go?”
  2. Alberta Cross – “Taking Control”
  3. The Hold Steady“Soft in the Center”
  4. The Gaslight Anthem – “Stay Lucky”
  5. The Tallest Man on Earth – “King of Spain”
  6. Ted Leo & The Pharmacists – “Bottled Up in Cork”
  7. Best Coast – “Sun Was High (So Was I)”
  8. Sleigh Bells – “Rill Rill”
  9. Future Islands – “Swept Inside”
  10. Maps & Atlases – “Perch Patchwork”
  11. Unkle – “Natural Selection” feat. The Black Angels
  12. LCD Soundsystem – “Home”
  13. Beach Fossils – “Sometimes”
  14. Spoon – “Who Makes Your Money”
  15. Blitzen Trapper – “The Man Who Would Speak True”
  16. Menomena – “Pilgrim’s Progress”
  17. Frog Eyes – “Styled by Dr. Roberts”
  18. The Black Keys – “These Days”
