    This list is courtesy of Pandora’s “Thumbprint” station. I feel like it’s a good selection, but it always weirds me out that they seem to group songs. Like I’ll get multiple female indie pop artists together, then multiple old timey country western together, etc. Anyone else notice this?

    Also, re: #9. I used to not like Radiohead except for a few select songs. I’ve really been coming around on them lately. Nothing that’s quite catchy enough for me to seek it out, but every time I’m listening I’m enjoying.

    Also super pumped for DBT/Lydia in a few weeks. Should be getting the new DBT in the mail very soon...
