Short post this morning.
But for those of you who are always looking for new stuff to listen to... a very special heads-up for you. Hit the link on the right side, where it says "The Big Ticket."
Yesterday marked the first posts of The Big Ticket's Mix '05.
I've been reading The Big Ticket for months, if not years... and he gets it more right than most. I promise that if you check in on a daily (or quasi-daily) basis this month, you'll hear a lot of songs you've never heard before, all of them good, and all with descriptions to MAKE them good if you somehow miss it the first time around.
If you're interested in seeing last year's list... take a look and see how dead-on he was, about a year ahead of the rest of us (scroll down for the full tracklist).
Also, be sure to head over to Stereogum to grab that Self track I mentioned yesterday (scroll down to the "what are you gonna do Sara... smile?" post)... I'd never heard it before, and now I'm all about the Yacht Rock.
Great, and shockingly irony-free.
