By Spencer. With the daylight fading and the leaves turning, it seems like a perfect time to revive The Mixologist. From the usual suspects like Josh Ritter and Glen Hansard to new S&N favorites like Junius Meyvant and Phil Cook, this is a soundtrack for those countryside drives to see the fall foliage and those nights around the bonfire. Download, listen, and let it move you forward.

Nice. It just soundtracked our very seasonal dinner. You did a great job picking out the best of the large group of albums you recently picked up. You picked some real gems…you even convinced me to give Lou Barlow a try (despite a long and deep-seated resentment toward him).
Have I mentioned how good I think the Joan Shelley album is? Just gorgeous. Good song choice.
About half of these songs I don’t know, pretty excited to give it a listen.
Put it on Spotify as that is the only way I listen to music these days (all the songs were actually there): https://open.spotify.com/user/12412005/playlist/0Wr22KcxVWCpOZnO8vhyxJ
Thanks, Hendricks. There was a point where I was doing the Spotify version of the playlist too. Need to get back to doing that!
So I checked out the Lou Barlow. I’ll listen again, but I didn’t feel the whole thing. This means that you picked the best track…so props to you, Spencer! The Roadside Graves track is excellent too…
Eh, Lou Barlow isn’t an everyday listen, but I like his off-kilter melodies. Definitely reminds me of early Elliott Smith (though not as good as all that, of course). That Roadside Graves album is solid — one of those ones that grows on you.
