Playlist in Minnesota: What I'll Write To

For the next seven days I'll be visiting my good friends John and Haruko Dwyer at their amazing new home in Minnesota. While I'm there, of course there will be at least a little (read: probably a lot) of whiskey drinking between John and I. But during the mornings and afternoons I will be writing in my so-called "novel." In order to get those words fruitfully multiplying across the screen I've enlisted the help of some of my favorite (all-time and current) records (because I tend to listen to records in their entirety as opposed to a playlist of songs). So, in no particular order, here are the folks I'll be listening to while I write next week:

Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

The National - High Violet

Real Estate - Real Estate

Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?

Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

Woods - Songs of Shame

Beach House - Bloom

Fela Kuti - Gentleman

Sigur Ros - Valtari

Flaming Lips - Tranmissions from the Satellite Heart
