Brought To You By The Letter…F

Comments Off

The Impound has been organizing its music archives, and we hit upon the idea of sharing tunes we dig in an alphabetical way. So, for the next few months we’ll be working our way from A-Z with a choice baker’s dozen or so installment each week that includes bands/artists from a single letter.

Our “F” assortment includes DI staples Dan Fogelberg, Fleetwood Mac and Fairport Convention alongside some artists that deserve bigger audiences and critical recognition (The Features, Johnny Flynn and Liam Finn) as well as a monster track from one of our fave-o-rite cult U.K. acts (“Good News Bad News”) named Family. If just one listener decides to explore the Family catalog because of this mix we feel we’re doing God’s work here at the Impound (and you might well start with the killer 2 CD compilation In Their Own Time if you feel so inclined). Now, we’ll shut the “F” up and get rolling…

Listen to this mix HERE. Track listing below.

You can listen to 8tracks mixes on your iPhone (pick up the app here) and Android (pick up the app here).

Uh, we were going to show you a nice picture of Furry Friends with a Fabulous Letter “F” but the Sesame Street gang is still pissed about Romney saying he’s pulling their funding. Looks like it’s gonna be a street fight with the GOP!

Sunday Brunch I

Comments Off

Once a month, the Impound will serve up a consciously gentle assortment to soundtrack the weekend waking of our readers. This inaugural edition includes two old songs that seem eerily timely from John Hartford and Gerry Rafferty, one of Elton John’s best moments, sweet covers of CSN (Cosmic Rough Riders) and Dolly Parton (Ida) and other tunes handpicked to ease you into the sunrise. Coffee’s on. It’s going to be a wonderful day…

May Day Celebration IV

Comments Off

While things seem sweet & gentle in the fourth May Day Celebration offering, further inspection reveals Cupid is packing heat, the ship’s already sailed, and the line’s gone dead. Such is life – sometimes – and thankfully there are fab songs like these to help us through rough straits.

Poundings XXII

Comments Off

One more quality assortment before the calendar flips tomorrow. This one’s full of love, longing and long looks. First cut goes out to anyone spending New Year’s Eve alone that really doesn’t want to. The ache of the heart is like no other, and the only cure is often finding just the right set of lovely, understanding eyes to stare into. May we all find just a bit more of what we’re looking for in the New Year.
