mvyradio HOT SEAT

Winter Doldrums. That’s what I called tonight’s Hot Seat. In January 2011 I did a similar show that I called Winter Melancholy. Whatever you want to call it, I’ve sure got it this time of year, and I know I’m not alone here on the island (and on the Cape). Many times I try to uplift my craptastic winter mood with happy music…when you close your eyes and listen to certain songs and artists, it’s like you’re transported to a warmer climate. But then there are times when I need a different sort of consolation. Those times are when I listen to music that really FEELS and SOUNDS like that gray winter bleakness. Here were my picks for tonight:

Bahamas “Lost In The Light”
Alexi Murdoch “All My Days”
Death Cab For Cutie “Transatlanticism”
The Weepies “They’re In Love, Where Am I?”
Radiohead “Backdrifts”
Damien Rice “The Blower’s Daughter”
The Tallest Man On Earth “Little River”
Lisa Hannigan “Paper House”
Josh Ritter “The Curse”
Bon Iver “Skinny Love”
The Decemberists “Hazards Of Love”
Feist “Caught A Long Wind”

PLAYLIST: Dinner Guests

It’s always fun for me to decide what music to play while entertaining guests…and it’s especially nice when someone compliments the choices. I felt like this particular list went over very well and created a perfect mood for dinner with friends.

(We listened to the full albums, but the playlist below is a song from each so you can get a taste!)

Paul Simon – Graceland
Norah Jones – Little Broken Hearts
Rodriguez – Searching for Sugar Man Soundtrack
Ryan Adams – Ashes and Fire
Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – I Learned The Hard Way
