ich bin back mixtape vol ?

so to officially say i'm back from vacation, here's a bunch of songs that have either been forwarded or recommended to me over the past little while...i will warn you, it's quite an eclectic mix, so don't be afraid if some of this doesn't make any sense to you. it's just stuff that i've listened to and put the good ol' ydb stamp of approval on. if you didn't learn anything from my 10 days of birthday mp3 brouhaha, then maybe this can be your tried and true intro as to what makes me tick. by no means is this the be all and end all to what i like to listen to, but it's a good jumping off point. there's some new stuff, some old stuff, some buzzy stuff, and i'm pretty sure that my inclusion of this particular mountain goats cover qualifies as nerdy stuff (explanation: i actually own the andrew lloyd webber greatest hits cassette). so, i'll stop blathering on semi-incoherently, and you can get to work on your ydb music appreciation 101 course.

jed and lucia - off the ground (their myspace)

snowden - anti anti (more info at the official site and more tracks at their myspace)

mountain goats - tell me on a sunday (the aforementioned nerdfest entry)

stevie wonder - we can work it out (if you don't realize this is a cover, you should be ashamed of yourself)

you say party! we say die!the gap (more info at the myspace listen is you like ninja high school or the go! team)

the beach boys - god only knows

kashmere stage band - shaft(read more about these guys here, if you know what's good for you)
