The premise for "Repeat Offenders" is simple--take 7 songs that I have played continuously over the course of the past week, and share them with you. Classics, new tracks, hits, rarities--anything goes, as long as I couldn't get it out of my head! Now to the songs, in no particular order.
The Avalanches - "Since I Left You"
Hip-hop heavily samples soul, and strikes gold
Iggy Pop - "The Passenger"
Rock at its rawest, and finest
The Hold Steady - "You Can Make Him Like You"
Riff-heavy bar-rock that is as catchy as it is anthemic
Smith Westerns - "Boys Are Fine"
These Chicago rockers got the whole lo-fi, garage rock thing down to a tee
The Pixies - "Hey"
One of my all-time favorites back into the rotation
J Tillman - "James Blues"
Fleet Foxes drummer by day, Americana crooner by night
Neko Case - "I'm an Animal"
While I'm a long-time listener of The New Pornographers, I have not gotten around to Neko's solo endeavors--This track puts an end to that
