    Tracks of the Week: Thanks

    Mike Doughty "Thank You, Lord, For Sending Me the F Train" - You may not immediately recognize the name, but you'll surely recognize the voice if you've ever heard Soul Coughing. Mike (or M. Doughty as he's been known) recorded a 12-song personally-released CD called Skittish a few years ago. All the songs are from '95 and '96. So he was working on these in his spare time while still with Soul Coughing. Funky acoustic ditties. You can still buy the album from Doughty's site at Now, throw me the rope of love! Buy It.

    Explosions in the Sky "The Long Spring" - The Temporary Residence label celebrated its 50th release this year by offering up a compilation called Thank You spotlighting its best and brightest artists. A sedate (and exclusive!) collection of indie instrumentals weaves its way through contributions from Fridge, Parlour, Howard Hello, and many other post-rock groups. This track is a highlight, although the whole album's good for a lazy afternoon. Buy It.
