Molina and Johnson 2009 via Secretly Canadian
a note about this track

Will Johnson approached Jason Molina at the merch table following a Magnolia Electric Co. Austin, TX show in September 2007, where they engaged in a conversation about hats -- favorite types and what's appropriate for the stage -- and, of course, pumpkins. Numbers were exchanged on tattered napkins. Contact was made within a week, and a straight face agreement to co-conspire was made.

a note about this track

Ritter's music comes across as magically American and exasperating, ambition-filled and optimistically charged, as if there were a grand flame roasting from his most honest and truthful insides, where he hides his most treasured assets.

Pet Personals - Carol's Ferals - Pistachio (click for more info)
WYCE and Carol's Ferals bring you today's Pet Personals. Carol’s Ferals & Friendlies is a Trap-Neuter-Return organization working to alleviate the overpopulation of stray cats in Grand Rapids. They also have many friendly, altered kitties up for adoption. Today meet "Pistachio". Pistachio is an all-orange adult tiger male with the cutest little black birthmark on his nose. He was rehabbed from a cat colony and showed that he's super-friendly to people and has no problem living with other cats! Unfortunately, now he's one of Carol's long-timers. If you're interested giving "Pistachio" a forever home, email "adoption at carolsferals dot org". Catch up with Carol's Ferals at the West Michigan Pet Expo at The Deltaplex, Saturday, April 24!

Please Don't
Here Lies Love 2010 via Nonesuch
a note about this track

“The story I am interested in is about asking what drives a powerful person—what makes them tick? How do they make and then remake themselves? I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great if—as this piece would be principally composed of clubby dance music—one could experience it in a club setting? Could one bring a ‘story’ and a kind of theater to the disco? Was that possible? If so, wouldn’t that be amazing!” -DB
