A few superb transitions, LM: R.E.M. into The Chills and Destroyer into Prefab Sprout.

Taking a lunch break at the halfway mark. Really enjoyed it so far. The combination of big hits and more obscure stuff (at least for me) is great.

I wish more people were into them. NSW was a fan.

Thank you, that was the tricky part for me this time around. I didn't want people to get bored with too much of either. It could have been an Awesome 80s Hitz comp you buy at a gas station or the playlist of some nerd trying to impress everyone with music knowledge, but I definitely think it's neither of those things.

The Sundays are a band that I have a weird relationship with. It's like, today, when I see a band with the perfect description to my tastes, and then I listen to them and it's like, oh, this is good, but I'm probably never going to hear this again. And I have no idea why I do that.

They're the Smiths and Cocteau Twins stirred together slowly at a simmer. Utterly charming if not quite as great as either band.

My playlist apparently killed Gump and iYup. They're in U2 Heaven now.

I really don't have much to say about Travis' list, because...come on. There are like five songs I don't know on here, and then the rest of the list is basically just a play-by-play of my all-time favorite songs. Flow is great, only thing I absolutely hated with every fiber of my being holy shit kill it with fire was the song by The Associates. Holy shit, if I never hear that again, it'll be too soon.

Loved the list!

It's called a palate cleanser.

No, seriously, I love that song. Musically, it's pure joy. The vocal could have been toned down, but it's my favorite song by a band I recommend, so it needed to be there.

As for the end,the intention had been to ease out of what had been a pretty hi tempo list through something that was sorta the same as the beginning, but a little less pure moods. It does end up being a really quit fade out, so I can see it not working. But, I definitely tried to do too much, so if that's the only thing that failed to hard, I'm not too upset.

The Pillows are fantastic, just for the record. They did the soundtrack for the Anime FLCL, but don't let that make you think they're a JPop band. That song is pretty indicative of their sound.

Don't get too excited about Blue Sky Black Death, yet. They are hip hop producers, but their last two albums have been all instrumental stuff. Glaciers was one of my favorite albums last year, and Noir was also in my top ten the year it came out.
"Failed" in regard to the ending would be a bit harsh. Don't think I meant it that way, it was just kind of like the musical equivalent of ...

Ok, so The Pillows yes, Black Death thing probably not so much. Although if instrumental in a vein similar to the track you included, then maybe I should consider checking those albums out. There's a weird line that I'm not 100% sure where to draw it in terms of instrumental type stuff. Or I just don't know the genre names to be able to really do it. Dubstep can die in a fire, oonts=go fuck yourself. But I can't say post rock guitars is where that line is, because I like me some pretty-sounding more electronic stuff sometimes.

Yeah, it's hard to really define. Like, Glaciers is listed as "Downtempo, Dream Pop, Instrumental Hip Hop, Cloud Rap" but there's no actual rap on the album, it's all, if I remember correctly, instrumental. Noir on the other hand, has the same tags (minus dream pop), and also contains a lot more vocal sampling, like what's featured in the track I used on my list. I'd say you'd be safe giving at least a few songs from Noir a try, if you enjoyed that song. If you like dreamier stuff, Glaciers is really good, but completely different from what I've experienced from them otherwise.

Before that, I'm less familiar, but I know they have an album that's listed as Trip Hop that I really want to hear, and their really early stuff has MCs featured over the beats, so...
