Is there gas in the car? Yes, there’s gas in the car.

Jan 27th, 2010 | Categories: Music | by Michael Williams

In lieu of a mixtape (Muxtape?) allow me to present some of the sounds that have been heard around the ACL offices as of late. Since there is a strong Brooklyn Vegan like atmosphere floating around in the comments, I figured this would be fitting. Enjoy!

The Middle East — Blood

Little Dragon — Feather

Lissie — Everywhere I Go

Dirty Projectors — Stillness is the Move

The XX — Crystalised

Grizzly Bear — While You Wait for the Others

Department of Eagles — No One Does it Like You

Blitzen Trapper — Furr

Steely Dan — Kid Charlemagne

    You need to upload these all to drop.io in mp3 form so we can all download the whole mix for similar use. That would rock and be super easy.

    Reminds me of the Neko Case “Maybe Sparrow” video…and that is a good thing.

    It’s like you’re picking my soundtrack for the day. Many similarities.

    @atom Brooklyn Vegan commenters are known to be “critical” of the content and of music in general. It is a great site — you should check it out.
