Eccentric Progress

"Sonic Armada" - Air
This song has a steady beat that just... sucks ya in. Or it did for me. Simple as that.

"Kemosabe" - Everything Everything
Sometimes I have dance parties by myself, and Everything Everything has been on top of the playlist recently. Which also gives you an idea of why I don't go to legit dance clubs.

"Answers" - Ou Est Le Swimming Pool
Found this band thank's to Mark Hoppus' Spotify playlist. So far I think they're pretty nifty!

"The Void" - Metric
Metric's new album... does not disappoint. I do need to give it another listen though, I haven't given it all my attention yet.

"Rusted Wheel" - Silversun Pickups
I might've said this before, but I don't think I'd be able to hold a conversation with the singer for long in person.... But as a singer, his voice paired with the style of music is wonderful!

"Demons" - The National
This was actually the first song I had heard off of their new album, accompanied by this video. It wasn't the first to linger in my brainpan, but so many of the lyrics separate of each other really captivate me.
"I can't fight it anymore, I am going through an awkward phase."
"I am secretly in love with everyone that I grew up with."
"When i walk into a room I do not light it up. Fuck" (This I love more for referencing an older song of theirs. And the casual way they sing "Fuck.")

"Animals" - Muse
I'm wary of going to see Muse in concert, for how large the shows are. Unless you spend exorbitant amounts to get up close, the quality is (almost) the same as watching YouTube videos. But the other parts of me just want to experience his panty-melting voice live. Some might consider that worth the money.

"Under a Killing Moon (Live)" - Thrice
I typically do not like live tracks on albums. If I wanted to hear the crowd, I'd go to the show. Or perhaps watch a YouTube video. But I love the acoustic and raw sound of ths, and although there might be a non-live acoustic version, I do not own it.

Honourable Mention:

"New Direction" - Sugar Ray
A stream of it can be found here, since I did not include it on the mix. (It's the last one, not the first one.)
I purposely did not put this on the actual mix, because I'm not that cruel. Okay, so it's not really that bad, but I see it as a joke. And I don't actually seek it out to listen to it. My iPod just thought it was funny to play multiple times.
The addition of this song.... well, via my personal opinion, baffled me. But ultimately I do understand why they included it. I just would not have.
But. It is Sugar Ray.... If you see the progression of their albums, well, this isn't the only questionable decision they've made. Again, in my opinion. But do I love them less? HELL NO.
