in a perfect world of yancies: Sounds Good

Sounds Good

Got together with some fellow CHS folks for a CD swap at Vermillion on Tuesday.

Was a great way to meet more Capitol Hill neighbors, and a great way to get some new music!

Everyone (more or less) made a mix, then we drew names out of a hat (okay, a plastic cup) . . .

By far the best packaging, from Ryan:

Also included a playlist written with a typewriter!

Speaking of playlists, a few of us have posted ours over on CHS; if you'd like, please take a look.

Oh, fine, I'll give you a couple here . . .

Here's mine, much of which probably sounds familiar:
1. The Garden / Cut Chemist
2. What Up Man / The Cool Kids
3. Ride A White Horse / Goldfrapp
4. Do the Whirlwind / Architecture In Helsinki
5. take time / The Books
6. Figure 8 / Duplex
7. Out There On The Ice / Cut Copy
8. Graveyard Girl / M83
9. The Earthquake of '73 / Fruit Bats
10. Two Weeks / Grizzly Bear

So far, I like it, especially the Petra Hayden and the Goodnight Electric. Oh, and speaking of avitania, these photos are all hers, and you can see more on flickr. Thanks for the music and the pics!

Look, she even got one of me that looks pretty good:

How about a few more samples to round things out?
