Bookended by two songs from Fun., February’s mix contains a slew of music I listened to while driving cross country (Frank Turner’s “The Road”, The Low Anthem’s “To Ohio”, The National’s “England”), with new music from Delta Spirit, Sleigh Bells, Bruce Springsteen, The Shins, and First Aid Kit, some covers of Bob Dylan from the recently released Chimes of Freedom set (including Johnny Cash & the Avett Brothers and Kris Kristofferson) and I threw in one of my favorite Dylan covers, The Turtles “It Ain’t Me Babe”, plus music from Gotye and Wild Yaks, The Cars classic “Drive” which I’ve been listening to a lot lately, and two covers of two of my favorite songs, Frank Turner covering the Boss’s “Thunder Road” (which is magnificent) and Clem Snider covering Journey’s “Faithfully”.
And you can listen to most of the tracks on Spotify here.
