Yeah,,,, I guess this might not make sense...

on wednesday morning i'll be going to Central America (Belize and Guatemala) for 3 weeks to do some traveling...
I'm currently burning my favourite cds to MP3 cds so I can take about 60 albums on 4 or 5 cds. I do want to some new music with me, but i'm not sure what to download.

Basically... I guess i'm looking for music I can fall in love with easily, that will provoke strong memories down the road, and... yeah. I'm not asking for your favourite cd of the last couple months or whatever, just something you think would be good for moving around alot on your own in a strange world. God... that doesn't make any sense does it? I've downloaded some stuff i'm hoping I'll like, but I'm open to more suggestions.

Yeah, so any suggestions... thanks.

Yo La Tengo's The Sounds of the Sounds of Science is good background music for driving.

Enon - "high society"
Mum - "yesterday was dramatic, today is ok"
Badly Drawn Boy - "the hour of bewilderbeast"
The Rentals - "return of the rentals"


theres actually a lot of variety in this music. the only typically brad-style album in this list (as you like to call it), might be Mum

Travelling can be a mystical sort of experience and so I will recommend some albums I feel have that kind of vibe.
My apologies if I'm supposed to know that you love these albums already. I have a horrible memory. This is probably being recommended too late and you probably won't have time to d/l em. :(

night albums

the clientele - the violet hour
mercury rev - deserter's songs
bonnie prince billy - i see a darkness
yo la tengo - painful

day albums

guided by voices - bee thousand
jim o' rourke - eureka
yo la tengo - i can hear the heart beating as one

oh and since you're going to be in belize, you should probably listen to centaur's warm breezes since it's original name was placenia, named after the town in belize. i know i've already told you that story though. :)

FUCK I FORGOT! Since you're going to be in Central America I would strongly recommend downloading Antonio Carlos Jobim's 1967 album titled Wave. He's from there and it's a beautiful record so it would be pretty cool to hear it in the environment that influenced it.

ramble on - led zeppelin
where the streets have no name - u2

grateful dead - american beauty

its not what you would expect a grateful dead album so be, no jamming. its all acoustic stuff. fucking incredible. its going to be playing non stop on my trip across country.

"box of rain" is the standout track. a great traveling song. maybe the best song i have heard in a year.

Antonio Carlos Jobim was from Brazil, so that would be South America not Central America. But yes, he has some nice stuff :)

Hmmm, much appreciated all... Tony, I'll see if I can find that Jobim album... i'm running out of time to download stuff though... gotta pack up my computer to move home in a few hours. And yes, i'm definitely taking In Streams along with me, I may even end up in Placencia, if I do I'll sit on the beach and listen to it while staring at the ocean... sound good? Haha...

But thanks for the other reccomendations guys. I think you got the vibe I was looking for. I mgiht try that Greatful Dead one too, i've never really given them a serious listen....

Yeah I wanted to check AMG to see where he was from before I posted but this thing is on dial up and I was being lazy.

You can't go wrong starting with either Painful or I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One.

Don't forget to take some pain killers.
I think that's what Matt was on. Vicodin or something...
