...I Want to Listen to While I Chop Vegetables For A Stew, or Sit and Contemplate the Fallen Leaves I Should Rake
3 of My Records:
Strychnine Dandelion by The Parting Gifts (2010)
Son of Schmillsson by Harry Nilsson (1972)
The Velvet Underground & Nico by The Velvet Underground (1967)
Chosen By: Clint M.
Location: Oklahoma City, OK
Why These 3: After the brutal grind that the excess of summer eventually becomes, I'm ready for a change of tempo. In autumn, I want a record to listen to while I chop vegetables for a stew, or sit and contemplate the fallen leaves that I should rake. That is to say, I'm not exactly at my most punk rock. The Velvet Underground is kind of a no brainer for shorter days and longer shadows. The Parting Gifts present a perfect soundtrack for a cool weather stroll with someone soft who may smell of pumpkin spice. If you can't get into Nilsson by a fire with a nice scotch--well, I can't help you.
