Summery sets from Pink, with love.

What can I say, it was July 4th, I decided to do an AMERICA FUCK YEAH set. Although if you look a little closer, it is not merely blind nationalism. A set of some of my favorite American music, combining pride, dissent, and creative expression.

1. Woody Guthrie - "This Land is Your Land"
2. Iron Horse - "Ride The Lightning"
3. Funkadelic - "You And Your Folks, Me And My Folks"
4. Phil Ochs - "I Ain't Marching Anymore"
5. Robert Johnson - "Ramblin' On My Mind"
6. Allen Ginsberg & Tom Waits - "America (Closing Time)"
7. Miles Davis - "John McLaughlin"
8. Janis Joplin - "Summertime"
9. Tom Waits - "Heartattack and Vine"
10. Dead Kennedys - "California Uber Alles"
11. Johnny Cash - "Folsom Prison Blues (Live)"
12. Dick Dale - "Riders In The Sky"
13. The Allman Brothers Band - "In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed"
14. Frank Zappa - "Son Of Mr. Green Genes"

And because I have neglected to post my set from June 27th, here it is! This was a summery, often fuzzy, often obscure, set.

1. Angus MacLise - "Shortwave-India"
2. Inverness - "Your Eyes Are Flowers of Light"
3. Mount Eerie - "Voice in Headphones"
4. Shades of Joy - "Flute in a Quarry"

9. Tortoise & Bonnie "Prince" Billy - "Thunder Road"
10. Beck - "Green Light"
11. The Mountain Goats & John Vanderslice - "Sudden Oak Death"
