Sadly thier LP, Makeup the breakdown, severely lacked Chris Walla, and as such, was not as good as the EP.

This may be off-thread, but I learned that Rilo Kiley's guitarist was a former actor on the Nickelodeon program, Salute Your Shorts.

I believe he played Robert Pinsky.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Robert Pinsky? Isn't that the poet who did the awesome translation of Dante's Inferno? I believe he also did an episode of the Simpsons where lisa pretends to be in college.

I need something loud/upbeat to wake me up. Lately Mighty Mighty Bosstones Jackknife to a Swan has been in heavy early am rotation. Other standbys include Jets to Brazil's Four Cournered Night (especially "You're Having the Time of My Life") and Nada Surf's Let Go. And for some strange reason, Sondre Lerche's Faces Down is another good morning selection, though I'm not sure it's either loud or upbeat.

If it's morning homework time, I usually go with an assortment of tunes from my large (almost embarassingly so...) collection of old Everclear/Colorfinger/Easy Hoes mp3's. Nothing like a little loud, live rock for an alarm clock.

Ahem. Thanks for coming clean- now I can admit to a similar driving to work ritual that involved the GZA's "Liquid Swords" turned up so that my cheap ass speakers would rattle; that and a cup of free creosote-thick breakroom coffee, and it was *on*.

I too drink the free breakroom coffee. Somehow ours manages to be thin and watery while simultaneously tasting like battery acid. But I still drink it anyway.

I love hearing about what people listen to in the morning. You are all so different...and I just have to say:

Grant: Mandarin Chinese first thing in the AM? ...I figured a response of this sorts would come out of you.

NoPic: Who is John Rouse and is this getting laid regularly a cause and effect relationship?

And I want to clarify that all of my AM song choices revolve around the fact that I'm a compulsive day-dreamer. A little tribal archetype in the morning never hurt anyone.

Or maybe Chicago is very lucky that I don't operate a vehicle.

Oh boy sleep! That's where I'm a Rockstar Spy.

just saw these guys Romantica friday night at the always fabulous Turf Club in St. Paul and i can't stop listening to their cd "It's Your Weakness That I Want". although they were much better live...the production on the album is a little slick for my taste.

but There She Goes is making mornings a bunch more bearable.
