So I'm in this post immediately saying sorry. The playlist was supposed to come out Monday but I got busy. Then it was supposed to come out Tuesday but I got pukey and left work and laid in bed. So now it's Wednesday and the playlist is here. Don't worry. It's all good. I'm drinking coffee again. 

 

The first three tracks are new to the archive, all three are solid, but I'm particularly hyped on these jams from The Icks because, you know, feels like they've been slightly out of circulation for a minute and it's nice to see them again. Hi guys, let's get a drink later, I'll bring the organ and distortion pedal. 

 

The rest of the playlist is Thanksgiving themed, insofar as it represents a friggin' cornucopia of delightful jams culled from the archive, a lot of it I've still somehow never heard, despite my near-constant diving, wading, and searching. I've scanned past the The Tensioned String several times without even reading the name and that joke is on me, because their album The Point Township Anti-Social Club literally sounds like nothing else on the archive, and I'm in love. Apparently The Tensioned String is primarily Evansville's Damon Dawson who lists himself, in part, as an "experimental luthier," building custom instruments and improvising on them to bring these tracks to fruition. Vibe. 

 

I'll also admit I've been screwing my skimming up when I look past Panoply Academy Corps of Engineers in the "P" section of the archive, because their mathy wails scream "BLOOMINGTON BASEMENT" to me so loud I can barely hear the neighbor kids outside yelling at each other, and I'm sitting right next to an open window. There's only two tracks and no information about the band up in here, but it is bottomless fun. 

 

Tune in next week when I will hopefully hit publish on time! 

 

Thanks, as ever, to Smallbox for making these playlists possible.
