So It Goes

Tonight Evan was off on a top-secret undercover mission (oops, I've said too much) so I did Thrice Removed by myself for the first time since May. It was... pretty good.

Tom Fun Orchestra - Last of the Curious Thieves (You Will Land with a Thud, 2007)
The Wooden Sky - When We Were Young (If I Don't Come Home You'll Know I'm Gone, 2009)
The Traveling Wilburys - Runaway (Vol. 3, 1990)

Rubyfish - Mr. Sun (single, 1994, Random 45!)

Tegan & Sara - Hell (Sainthood, 2009)
Sloan - Take It Upon Yourself (Digital EP, soon to be released)

Super Mystery Tribond Set*
Dan Mangan - Et Les Mots Croises (Nice, Nice, Very Nice, 2009)
The Telepathic Butterflies - She Looks Good (Breakfast in Suburbia, 2008)
Library Voices - Things We Stole From Vonnegut's Grave (Hunting Ghosts [& Other Collected Shorts], 2008)

Rare Earth - I Just Want to Celebrate (One World, 1971, for Roxana)
The Rolling Stones - She's So Cold (Emotional Rescue, 1980)
The Beatles - I've Just Seen a Face (Help!, 1965)

Fruit Bats - The Ruminant Band (The Ruminant Band, 2009)
The Dodos - Red & Purple (Visiter, 2008)

*The thread that ties these songs together is Kurt Vonnegut. Nice, Nice, Very Nice is a reference to his poem, The Fifty-third Calypso, The Telepathic Butterflies' name is inspired from a passage in the novel Breakfast of Champions, and the last one is pretty obvious.
