glad you enjoyed! i only have 3 Smog albums so had a fairly limited supply for him, but there were a few artists where i was surprised how many choices i had. Sea Pinks just put out a new album where two songs have ‘water’ in the title but i stuck with my first instinct for an older one.
the Okkervil River one is from The Silver Gymnasium which is pretty decent, that’s definitely the stand out track though. i quite like I Am Very Far as well but i haven’t listened to the new one much.
don’t worry, i can talk about GBV at length. i nearly swapped that track when i realised i’d overlooked a big favourite:
but the swap pushed the mix length past the CD limit so had to swap back did think Back to the Lake worked well with the flow of the thing though. anyway, it’s best to start with Bee Thousand, followed by the other 90s classics Alien Lanes, Propeller and Under The Bushes, though the one on my mix is from the more professional, produced, early 00s period, which could be worth checking out if the lo-fi 90s ones aren’t doing anything for you (Under The Bushes sort of bridges the two extremes, and is over-long but largely great). and the one posted above is from the 90s lineup reunion from the last few years.
