the past few months, i have been obsessed with all things green – especially film photos taken in the woods or outdoors. you can see a reflection of this in the photos i’ve been posting around here lately, but today i looked at my favorites and thought … “brian, you really are obsessed.” so i’m sharing some of my current faves with you. these all have a september feel to me … the trees haven’t changed color yet, and everything is still green … but the evenings are chilly and it’s time to pack a sweater.

and it’s about time for some new tunes to usher in september, don’t you think?
i made a mix and you can listen to it HERE.

the track list =
+ rome (phoenix)
+ (i can’t seem to) make you mine (the clientele)
+ sugar on my tongue (the talking heads) [some classic awesomeness from david byrne and co.]
+ when the devil’s loose (a.a. bondy)
+ the tenure itch (the pains of being pure at heart)
+ curse your branches (david bazan (of ‘pedro & the lion’ fame))
+ ms. bentwich (princeton)
+ a lover like you (the avett brothers)
+ polly put the kettle on (kitty, daisy and lewis)
+ inspiration (dri)
+ good luck (sondre lerche)

somehow, all of these songs feel completely appropriate right now. i think this might be my favorite mix yet.  i hope you agree.

enjoy! happy friday to you.

    Green is good.
    I’m going to listen to your new mix while making homemade paste now. I see Sondre Lerche on your list. He used to be my neighbour ;-)
    Happy weekend, Brian!

    there is absolutely nothing wrong with being obsessed with green. i can’t wait to go home and listen this list. i plan to be barefoot, will that work? i think you and my brother are on the same musical track. he just saw the avett brothers a couple weeks ago in kc and can’t stop talking about it.

    I can feel the september in these images. Love all the greens they look extra pretty when taken with film. Have a wonderful weekend!
