So I ask of you: what songs make you think about evolution? I am a DJ, and I like to try and spin music that is relevant to the theme. I guess the caveat to my question is you would also enjoy hearing them out in the desert.
So far while working I have come up with:
Nothing but Flowers by Talking Heads
We've Got Everything by Modest Mouse
Hit me up with your suggestions, and maybe you will see a giant pink and purple birthday cake driving across the playa, blasting your requested song. (another caveat: I fucking hate trance. I kind of view the playa as my battleground in the war against trance. I am not judging those of you who like trance, and it seems there are lots of you out there, I am just saying that is not the kind ideas I am gunning for.) :-)
Last year, for American Dream, I played :
New Kicks by Le Tigre
Make Love F*ck War by Moby + Public Enemy
Lots of old R.E.M. (Exhuming McCarthy, Occupation, etc.)
*Those of you who don't know about KEXP out of Seattle, you need to listen to this radio station. Here is a link: http://kexp.org/
TIA and holy cow it's almost go-time.
