Troubled Treble

One more mixtape for the season.  All these fall songs seem to have one thing in common, a little twang, so naturally, here we have:


Troubled Treble

And it comes complete with this garish cover art.  Hopefully the songs capture something of the season.  I like to think of them as putting-meat-on-your-bones type songs, which makes sense in autumn.  Also, unlike last time, we’re purely* American here.  Apple pie and football both come in fall.  Put it on a CD-r, pick up some brandy and start wearing flanel.  Tracklist!Bob Dylan – Day of the Locust
