I just threw together a new mix on 8tracks, 34th & Now: Kelly Kapowski Mixtape featuring 42 of my favorite pop/rock songs from the 90s. Let’s be honest, the 90s totally killed it in terms cheesy, sing-along, fun pop music and sometimes that’s what you need on a Sunday afternoon. As always feel free to share this one.

Show Me Love - Robyn
Impression That I Get - Mighty Mighty Bosstones

Figured I’d update an old 34th & Now mix in honor of tonight’s all-nighter Neuro study session. The old 34th & Now: The Life Acoustic playlist is now 34th & Now: The Life Acoustic w/ Steve Zissou.  Like its predecessor, its by no means exclusive to acoustic-only songs or acoustic versions of songs, its merely a collection of songs that feature the acoustic guitar prominently.

Right now its 60 tracks long but that’s subject to change as I give it a first run through. It features a bunch of artists I’ve been known to post on 34th & Now including:

Dave Matthews
Matt Nathanson
Blind Pilot
Radiohead
Mumford & Sons
The Head & The Heart
Phillip Phillips
Of Monsters & Men
ZZ Ward
Ingrid Michaelson
Joshua Radin
Iron & Wine
The Lumineers
The Villagers
The Decemberists
Vetiver
Margot & The Nuclear So and So
Archer Avenue
Matchbox Twenty
Coldplay
Ed Sheeran
Jack Johnson
Boy
Guster
Schuyler Fisk
Avalanche City
The Lighthouse & The Whaler
All Time Low
Katie Herzig
Zach Williams
Ben Gibbard
Damien Rice
Frightened Rabbit
The Pretty Reckless
The Civil Wars
Freelance Whales
John Mayer
Spoon
Hey Rosetta!
Tegan & Sara

Matchbox Twenty’s 1996 album Yourself or Someone Like You: every song was either a hit or became an underrated fan favorite. For some reason I got in a Matchbox mood around 4am; right now I’m feeling "Girl Like That."


"Kody sat down on the avenue; he tapped his feet, to the humming of the highway. He watched the light shine down on the broken glass and thought ‘I don’t got no reasons’" - Matchbox 20
Another quick Project 365 pic. This one was taken on the side of the Vine St. Expressway in Philly. If I had to guess I’d say my camera probably contracted 37 diseases during the five seconds I set it down here.
