Sunday Shuffle #335

Today has already featured a drive from Columbus, Ohio back to Valpo (which took about 5 1/2 hours) and a get-together to see a friend who's been living in Japan for three months. It was a quick weekend in Columbus but a good one filled with family, food, laughter, and a live performance by The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Still, I thought I'd squeeze in the usual Sunday ten...

Monthly Mix #3: Like A Shark Does

I realize that June has been gone for almost two weeks at this point but I didn't quite figure out if I wanted this to be a summer theme or just a collection of music again...and then I went on vacation. So, here I am with the June mix on July 12 and it's a cross between summer and a collection and also contains songs I discovered while on vacation. Whatever. In the end, it's a great group of songs and that's all that matters.

2. Swim and Sleep/Unknown Mortal Orchestra - I've heard this song here and there over the past few months and finall…
