Haven't listened to it all the way through yet, nickclick, but I get you... I wanted angry like some of my favourite tracks from Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea or Dry not mellow/depressing.

Lately I have an obsession with the Black Lips, they seem like they would be so crazy live.

I love Gogol Bordello! I have not seen them live, but from the energy that I have heard in them, I bet they would be an amazing live show!

I have really been in to John Vanderslice the last few weeks. He is playing a show soon and I really can't wait to see him.

Other bands/Artists I have been listening to of late:
The New Pornographers
The Rentals
Dirty Projectors
St Vincent

Nicky Click is on that label! We're not related. But she seems cool. I'll let her share my name. We'll race to see who gets famous first.

oresomom! haven't seen you in a while.

it's interesting that those are the bands you've been listening to; i've been screening a lot of records on amazon.com through their media player, and many of the times, for example, if i'm listening to feist, the other two will show up under the "listeners who bought feist also bought..." section.

Thanks for all the awesome suggestions, sidda! I actually already included "Go West" by Liz Phair, but forgot to mention it... and I can't believe I didn't think of Driving on 9!

It's almost done. I'll post the final track list soon. Oh, and I found an awesome photo in an old copy of National Geographic for the cover. It's an aerial shot of a car on a desert road.

Wow, edie, what a great idea!

Some possibilities for road trip songs...

-I'd actually recommend "Chicago" from the Illinoise album. One of their destination cities, plus it has a nice sort of majestic beat that suggests road-trippiness (which is probably part of why it got used for one of the scenes in Little Miss Sunshine)
-"Driving on 9", the Breeders (from their Last Splash album)
-Tori Amos's album Scarlet's Walk is actually supposed to be structured around a road trip. I like "Don't Make Me Come to Vegas" and "A Sorta Fairytale" from that album.
-Cyndi Lauper's version of "I Drove All Night" is awesome and has a nice driving beat to it too.
-Devotchka is a Denver band that honestly doesn't *sound* American but has a lot of great songs, several of which are good for driving..."The Enemy Guns", "We're Leaving" are a couple faves...
-Veruca Salt is from Chicago - personally, I prefer their old stuff (pre the Nina Gordon/Louise Post breakup) like "Seether" and "Volcano Girls."
-"Go West," Liz Phair (another Chicagoan).
-"Diamond in the Rough," Shawn Colvin
-Melissa Etheridge - Kansas girl with lots of great songs for driving....
-Sheryl Crow is from Missouri and has several songs that might work for the mix...
-Since they'll be going through Texas, definitely recommend some Dixie Chicks.
-"America," Simon and Garfunkel
-"Ring of Fire," Johnny Cash (written by June Carter Cash)

Anyway, just a few thoughts...sounds like it's going to be a great mix!

Oh yeah, I neglected to mention it, but I'm including a track from "Illinois." Probably "Decatur." Not sure though.

And moonpie, I'm a huge Neko Case fan. But for some reason I've been having a hard time choosing a song of hers for this mix. Maybe because said friends are not really fans, so I want to pick just the right one.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Edie-I'm sure it's an obvious choice but any of the sufjan stevens "state" albums would be obviously a great choice. Particularly anything off of the Illinois album.

Has anyone here heard the new Voxtrot Cd? I just got it and haven't had a chance to listen, but was wondering what tracks would be good to start with.

Edie---Neko Case, Joanna Newsom (amazingly celtic weird folky), the Bird and the Bee (more electronicy whimsical pretty), anything song by Heart, Nico "Chelsea Girl" like "These Days" or something, Loretta Lynn "Blue Kentucky Girl", Rosebuds (selected songs), *Metric*,

ohhh.. and Electrolane is neato, too. Camera Obscura? Charlotte Gainsbourg's new album is nice. France Gall, Francois Hardy, or old Brigitte Bardot is fun.

Dang... I could on for days. My new crushie has XMradio, and I've been hearing lots of new stuff, as well as expanding what I like musically. There's more I've come across that I like, but I forget!

Neko Case, Catpower, the Kills, Joanna Newsom, Loretta Lynn, Heart, and Nico for sure, though.. IMO. Some classic, some may be new for them... Feist kicks it hard... sigh, I love I love.

Otherwise, I've been on the Bird and the Bee,
Cinematic Orchestra's new one(first track makes me cry every time)
Electrolane (reminds of Liliput a bit),
Cibelle (brazillian lounge stuff),
Bebel Gilberto (Astrud Gilberto's daughter),
Feist-the Reminder... I freakin love that album. dang, again I must say it.
Metric's new album,
Bjork's new album... I cried.

No new rock or punk really to report, though...
