Sunday Shuffle #410

It's the Mother's Day edition of the Sunday Shuffle...which doesn't really change much of anything. We are going to see Captain America; Civil War in a little while and I have cleaning to do, so there will probably be a gap in the songs this morning. Not that you'll notice, but I thought I'd give you the inside baseball.

I saw Bob Mould in concert at The Metro with my friend Scott on Friday night. It was a great show. I almost made today's shuffle one that just focused on him, but since I've mostly listened to him this week, I thought I'd take a tour around my iTunes instead. If you're interested, I put together a Spotify playlist of the set.

Anyway, Happy Mother's Day to those of you to whom this applies! Let's get to today's ten...

1. Shadow of Love/Sloan (27) - last played on 11/27/15
2. Cheers and Applause/Portastatic (6) - last played on 5/3/15
3. Pedestrian At Best/Courtney Barnett (15) - last played on 5/1/16
4. Armchairs/Andrew Bird (6) - last played on 4/4/15
5. Nature Of The Experiment/Tokyo Police Club (5) - last played on 3/18/12

So here's where I left off hours ago. In the interim, we did see Civil War (which I really really likes) and I watched the Cubs for 13 innings (4 game sweep of the Nationals after a 3 game sweep of the Pirates). Got some reading done during the latter too, but that still leaves some housecleaning. Also in the interim, the new Radiohead album came out and I might have to get on that tonight. Anyway, back to the music...

6. You Know Who You Are/Nada Surf (16) - last played on 5/1/16
7. Rider/Okkervil River (14) - last played on 6/9/13
8. Off Work/Thurston Moore (4) - last played on 3/24/13

Sunday Shuffle #413

Summer is here and I'm happy that it is. Jill finished school this week, but Grant and I have to go through Friday. I have the week off from my TTT course, so I'm going to catch up on some reading and TV. There was baseball I could watch yesterday and I can watch some again today, so you can bet I'll be doing that. Few things bring me joy more than baseball and a book in my lap for between innings.

Here's today's ten...
