Route 66 is no longer an officially recognized roadway, but towns along the path of the historic Chicago-to-Los Angeles route still have signs celebrating this bit of America's cultural history. The musicians you'll hear in today's episode are from cities along the way, with one exception.
Here's what you'll hear today (direct download here):
Alyssa Hendrix (Chicago), "Know That Now"
7 Shot Screamers (St. Louis), "Confusion"
Dan Sehane (Tulsa, Okla.), "I'm Gonna See 'Serenity'"
The New Porn (Amarillo, Texas), "Slow Tanner"
Love Spirals Downwards, "Amarillo"
Enone (Edgewood, N.M. -- near Albuquerque), "Rebirth"
Setting Up Shop (Flagstaff, Ariz.), "The Closet Solution"
Dead Rock West (Los Angeles), "Don't Worry About Me"
Love Spirals Downwards were a California band, but by the time you get to Amarillo, you're probably going to be tired and want to spend the night. The dreamwave sounds of that band will lull you under quite nicely.
Tracks four and seven were discovered at GarageBand.com; everything else comes courtesy of the Podsafe Music Network.
Second of four no-talk episodes recorded in anticipation of a trip out of state, and I should be there by the time this airs.
