Viva La Persistence Playlist

This is the link to a mix for my cousin Lauren, pretty much the toughest, loveliest person I've ever met. It's a mix about moving to New Orleans - the reckless American spirit of wanderlust, mixed with the sweet sadness of closing the book on your coming of age story. There are songs for peeling out of 24-hour liquor stores, and songs for leaning against the doorframe of your new apartment, spacious in its emptiness, pregnant with possibility.

This mix is also the one I'll be swapping at the upcoming (hurricane-infested) CD Mix Swap - I hope it goes to a good home! I stole my boyfriend's trick of bookending the mix with unlikely covers of awesome songs.

Here's the tracklist:
1. When Doves Cry/Be Good Tanyas
2. Angel/Fleetwood Mac
3. Viva La Persistence/Kimya Dawson
4. American Music/Violent Femmes
5. Girl You Have No Faith in Medicine/White Stripes
6. Take Off Your Shirt/Bibio
7. Heart in Your Heartbreak/The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
8. Vacation/The Go-Go's
9. Goodbye/Asobi Seksu
10. Collarbone/Fujiyat Miyagi
11. Boute/Au
12. The Moment You Said Yes/Soltero
13. Duet/Rachael Yamagata
14. Modern Drift/Efterklang
15. Ha Ha/Emiliana Torrini
16. Heaven/Brandi Carlile
