1. Title: The Waist and The Knees Artist: Game Theory Album (year): Lolita Nation (1987) Submitted By: Scott Emmons (@BoogieStudio22) Comments: Scott Miller, of Game Theory and Loud Family, died on April 15. That kind of bummed me out because we are about the same age and I enjoyed his music. In 1987 I was several years out of college and immersed in the alternative music scene of the San Francisco Bay Area. I first remember hearing Game Theory’s song, “The Real Sheila”, on the San Jose, CA college station KSJS. Lolita Nation was an album of 27 tracks that demanded you listen from start to finish. It still does. In my mind, Lolita Nation is their . . . → Read More: Feel Bad For You – May 2013 Mixtape

1. Title: A New Love (Can Be Found) Artist: Daniel Romano Album (year): Come Cry With Me (2013) Submitted By: Bryan Childs (ninebullets.net) Comments: I was, literally, turned onto this guy 30 minutes ago by John Moreland/Corey Call via this track and I’ve listened to it 4 times already. Hope it catches you in the same way. [Editor’s note: Bryan wasted no time sending this in! And yes, I listened right away too!]
2. Title: Song For Zula Artist: Phosphorescent Album (year): Muchacho (2013) Submitted By: Mad Mackerel Comments: Phosphorescent’s Muchacho is our favourite album of the year so far and this may well be the best track on it.
3. Title: Up To Me Artist: Cosmonaut On Vacation Album: Let The Moment Land (2013) Submitted . . . → Read More: Feel Bad For You – April 2013 Mixtape

1. Title: Aluga-se-Vende Artist: Móveis Coloniais de Acaju (translates as “colonial mahogany wood-made furniture”) Album (year): Idem  Submitted By: hoosier buddy Comments: In the song, this couple breaks up and he says things to her about keys and the living room and brokers, all of which may make sense to him. What I love about it is the weird Bill Murray/Oingo Boingo vibe, the complicated but well-orchestrated arrangement, the drumming, and the way the song builds, then chills out a lot, and finally comes back like gangbusters to knock your socks off.
2. Title: Moving Furniture Around Artist: The Handsome Family Album: Odessa (1995) Submitted By: toomuchcountry Comments: Couches, love seats, ottomans, futons, etc. They’re all Sofa King pieces of furniture that must be moved from time to time.
3. Title: This Is A Notice Artist: . . . → Read More: Feel Bad For You – March 2013 Mixtape
February’s brings you a hot serving of musical goulash, thanks to Scott for curating and Matt for the artwork.
Title: Cleaning Out My Closet (Eminem cover) Artist: Angel Haze Album: Classick (2012) Submitted By: @tincanman2010 (http://tincanland.wordpress.com/) Comments: NSFW! wtf, rap on FBFY? Yeah, deal with it bitches. Eminem broke through rap’s colour barrier and Haze threatens to shatter it’s gender ceiling, so a cover seems appropriate. Similar styles, too
Title: 1965 (Duas Tribos) Artist: Legião Urbana Album (year): As Quatro Estações  Submitted By: hoosier buddy Comments: First, thanks go out to my last.fm friend Vitória for turning me on to this album. This song reminds me a little of The Refreshments circa 1996 – and also reminds me walking barefoot on hot beach sand, driving too fast in cars with bench seats, the big knobs on Silvertone guitar amps, Sandy Nelson of Superdrums! fame, . . . → Read More: Feel Bad For You – January 2013 Mixtape
