01. Happy Kid - NADA SURF

Nada Surf's album, "Let Go" has become one of my all time favorites, and thusly the band starts this compilation. If you like this, check out the rest of the album.

02. Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) - ARCADE FIRE

Having Arcade Fire play at Tufts with some of my best friends was a dream come true. Listen to this and you will know why.

03. Miracle Drug - A.C. NEWMAN

A.C.Newman was great live! He also plays solid indie-pop music in The New Pornographers.

04. Speedbumps - LUNA

Although I first heard this song during the cold Boston winter, listening to it makes me remember driving in the summer. Too bad this band just broke up.

05. Seventeen Years - RATATAT

Hit the dance floor as I "kick it from my head." Great duo.

06. As Serious As Your Life - FOUR TET

Four Tet and some of the others on this CD make amazing use of sonic texture. It is late at night but you have to turn this son way up.

07. Blood and Peanut Butter - BC CAMPLIGHT

This artist played recently with the Color Bars... catchy as hell. Dig it.

08. Counting Down the Hours - TED LEO & THE PHARMACISTS

Long time favorite and all around good guy, Ted Leo has just put out another great album, "Shake the Sheets" from which this song is taken.

09. 40" - FRANZ FERDINAND

Probably the biggest breakout success of the year. The entire album is as good as you'd hope it to be. This is the last track from it.

10. With Age - KARATE

Just listen to this as the snow is falling outside.

11. Bukowski - MODEST MOUSE

God, I love Modest Mouse. Amazing new album this year, buy it.

12. Baby, You're in Luck - APOSTLE OF HUSTLE

This is a side project from Broken Social Scene. Canada whos what is up this year.

13. Little Yellow Spider - DEVENDRA BANHART

The most interesting person in the indie music scene who I'd hope all of you to meet sometime, if only for five minutes.

14. Let's Get Lost - ELLIOTT SMITH

From his posthumous album, I will continue to miss the introspective genius who was Elliott Smith who we lost this year.

15. Cat Faces - UGLY CASANOVA

Modest Mouse singer's side project. Enough said.

16. On Your Way - THE ALBUM LEAF

Ok, you can fall asleep now. Thanks for listening to some of the songs that have inspired me this year.
