miTunes: November '09

3 Dec

headphones.jpgThe premise: one CD’s worth of the best songs I’ve heard throughout the month.

The sources: The Current, Pandora, XM and various sites on the web.

The criteria: (1) the songs have to be obscure, underground and/or mostly forgotten, and (2) they must be pop friendly.

The gist: I wade through music’s vast soundscape to discover hidden pop gems. This is a monthly series devoted to bringing you songs that are universally appealing yet mostly unknown.

1. “Don’t Look Away” – The Helio Sequence

2. “The Blizzard” – Camera Obscura

3. “Land Rights” – Xavier Rudd

4. “Shine Blockas” – Big Boi

5. “Make Her Mine” – Mayer Hawthorne

6. “Triumph” – Wale

7. “Heart Skips a Beat” – The xx

8. “Strictly Game” – Harlem Shakes

9. “Kerosene” – David Bridie

10. “Strange Powers” – The Magnetic Fields

11. “Song for No One” – Miike Snow

12. “Twilight Galaxy” – Metric

13. “Wraight Pinned to the Mist and Other Games” – Of Montreal

14. “My Friend” – Dr. Dog

15. “Penelope” – Pinback
