awesome post...but the link to the camera obscura track is actually just another link to the El Perro Mar song

Roland said...

Nice list. I prefer "Way Out" to "Turbo Dreams," but in any case, Orchestra is a darn good album. But aren't some of those tracks from last year?

Dan said...

Micah - D'Oh, thanks for pointing that out. It's now fixed.

Roland - Some songs from last year are in this, but they're credited as 2006 singles due to its release as a standalone single, EP, music video, etc.

micah said...

i've never seen you're blog before...and i've been visiting palms out, gorilla vs. bear, badmintonstamps etc. for a long have you been at this?

Dan said...

I've been writing about music for around a year and a half (school newspaper,, handwritten journals) but just started blogging 5 weeks ago.

micah said...
