Monkey on the Lam 03-19-09: Twittered requests live

This Twitter experiment is already yielding me some fruit, I slacked off preparing my show last night (uh, cuz I was setting up PJ at Che’s Lounge with his own twitter). So, since I have very little music selected, I was flying by the seat of my pants. However, my sudden influx of new listeners (thanks in part to twitter itself) blasted me with a barrage of eclectic requests. I couldn’t fill all of them, but I did my best to try, and during the show I got followed by another 5 or 6 people, and turned a few people on to making accounts themselves. This is my second day using the thing, my first day REALLY using it. It’s pretty incredible. Anyway, I took advantage of the requests and did my best to fill the gaps with my own selections. I also played that Clark EP, split up over the course of the show.

So anyway, the tracklist is as follows:

  1. Clark – Growls Garden
  2. Animal Collective – Banshee Beat
  3. Fever Ray – Keep the Streets Empty for Me (by request for Brian)
  4. Clark – The Magnet Mine
  5. Flight of the Conchords – The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room (Sort of by request for Paul)
  6. Sufjan Stevens – The Dress Looks Nice On You (by request for deckhands)
  7. Boards of Canada – Oscar See Through Red Eye
  8. Justice – Dance
  9. Patrick Wolf – Get Lost
  10. Zeigeist – The Lake
  11. Clark – Seaweed
  12. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Young Adult Friction
  13. Clark – Gonk Roughage
  14. Tim Exile – Don’t Think We’re One
  15. Bonnie Prince Billy – I Won’t Ask Again (by request for “humanity” from PJ at Che’s)
  16. Dodos – Chickens
  17. The Mountain Goats – So Desperate
  18. Bob Dylan – Not Dark Yet (by request from My Mom)
  19. Akron/Family – Dylan Pt. 2
  20. Billy Idol – White Wedding (by request from Chrysal)
  21. Clark – Distant Father Torch
  22. Clark – Farewell Mining Town
  23. Antony and the Johnsons – Kiss My Name
  24. Metric – Help I’m Alive (by request from Katherine via Facebook)
  25. Plaid – TAK 5

Note that I linked all those who made requests (or something resembling a request). I will try to do that from now on if I’m doing the Twitter thing, although if I have a lot of new music I might be less likely to take requests.

Oh and without further ado: Here’s the link to the episode for download/stream (64 kbps mp3 – i know i know, it’s recorded from the stream)
