kickass bathroom indie rock playlist

Filed under: — adrian @ 12:07 pm

When we have parties we have music playing just about everywhere, including the bathroom. Up until now, we’ve had Motown in the bathroom, the playlist for which I’ve written about before.

This time we decided to change it up a bit. Indie rock was the thought. I made a pretty awesome playlist of songs people might know along with some they’re guarenteed to not know. Not too hard, not too soft. Some old, some new. I stayed (mostly) away from the depressing songs I sometimes play on my radio show. This is a party after all! I think this is sort of what my radio show would sound like on the best day if I decided to not play any depressing music and wasn’t worried about over-playing songs that you can hear on commercial radio.

Well here it is:

  • Man-Revolutionary! by Rogue Wave
  • Evil by Interpol
  • Hard to Find by American Analog Set
  • Peacocks in the Video Rain by John Vanderslice
  • Scenic Pastures by Archers of Loaf
  • Marching Bands of Manhattan by Death Cab for Cutie
  • The Party by Matt Pond PA
  • All of November, Most of October by P:ano
  • Penelope by Pinback
  • New Slang by The Shins
  • Your Ex-Lover is Dead by Stars
  • Pancho Villa by Sun Kil Moon
  • The District Sleeps Alone Tonight by the Postal Service (I just couldn’t put Such Great Heights on the playlist)
  • The Silvery Light of a Dream, pt II by The Apples in stereo
  • Heart Design by Aqueduct
  • Haiti by The Arcade Fire
  • Sleep the Clock Around by Belle & Sebastian
  • If we Can Land a Man on the Moon, Surely I Can Win Your Heart by Beulah
  • Lion’s Mane by Iron & Wine
  • I Saw Kevin by Jay Walk Snail
  • Maple Leaves by Jens Lekman
  • Along for the Ride by Mates of State
  • The World at Large by Modest Mouse
  • My Old Man Had a Pistol by The New Amsterdams
  • One With the Freaks by The Notwist
  • Start Without Me by Pedro the Lion
  • Loro by Pinback
  • Wop-A-Din-Din by Red House Painters (full band 7″ version)
  • Grand Parade by The Reindeer Section
  • Heavy Metal Drummer by Wilco
  • Caspian Can Wait by The Velvet Teen

So that’s it. No duds in my opinion. Did I miss anything or is there anything else that would fit in well with this playlist?
