Bleached In The Sun (Denton, TX)
The word on the street is that Denton today is Austin 15 years ago. I don't know much about the city besides that, except that there's a mountain goats song about a metal band from there. So here's what happens when you decide to walk from Denton to the Pacific Ocean. This song was co-written by TGB new addition Mike Abiuso. Its probably no coincidence its one of the best tunes in this series. He's super talented, don't you think?

Britt Daniel Stole My Girl (Austin, TX)
Spoon is my favorite active band. If you don't know and love them, you're retarded. I pretty much think they are the cat pajamas. Also, they are from Austin. So this song is about lead singer Britt Daniel stealing my girlfriend. It obviously didn't happen, but if it did happen, I don't think I could blame either of them. They are both pretty fantastic human beings. In this song, I challenge him to a fight and rip off Bob Dylan's "Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat".

Meet Me In Mississippi (Hattiesburgh, MS)
I have no real explanation for this, except that I may be starting to lose my mind. Enjoy! Also...don't get all shitty on me, ok ladies????

Home of The Brave (Atlanta, GA)
Did you guys know there is a band called The Gaye Blades. There is and they are from ATL. They are rad and trashy and totally throwback garage rock. This song is those things, but in a different way. I'd like to high five those guys one day. Also, don't do the bad drugs. They'll kill you and hurt your families and friends.

Ooops I seemed to miss Volume 2 somewhere. Gotta go back and find it. Prop to Clark for producing these songs and give them out for free. He could have make some money by selling them on tour

I get so excited when there's a new volume of these. They are completely wonderful. I'm upset I missed them in Pittsburgh.
