1. Beirut — “Santa Fe”

    I’m staying in Santa Fe, N.M., tonight on the great adventure back to the East Coast, so I figured it was a good time to revisit this 2011 classic that was a huge part of my life that summer. But I’ve neglected it since. It holds up, and Zach Condon still wants to see you smile.

    Japandroids — “Younger Us”

    When I was driving home from Dodger Stadium tonight, I found one of the mix CDs I used to listen to all the time four years ago when I was covering the Single-A Aberdeen Ironbirds. “Younger Us” was the first song on it. In 2010, I wound through a curvy, semi-deserted two-line highway with the windows down and the volume up. Tonight, I flew down the I-5 with the windows down, the sunroof open and the volume up.

  6. Death Cab For Cutie — “405”

    My gf made me a mix that had this on it so now I’ve officially listened to “405” while sitting in traffic on the 405. Neat.

  8. Real Estate — “It’s Real”

  9. …and for me, that price was clearance records for $9.99 at Urban Outfitters.

    I am ashamed (but I now own Stay Positive by The Hold Steady and Local Business by Titus Andronicus, so that’s pretty neat).
