Playlist Wednesday: Get A Move On!

Referring back to an earlier post this week, I have a bike now. I've got a new way to get around and explore. This week's playlist honors transportation. By plane, by train, by canoe? Yes by canoe. Sorry if you were expecting me to include Bicycle Race by Queen. That's just too easy.

Other music fun:
Feist is working hard these days. She collaborated with Ben Gibbard on a track for the charity album Dark Was the Night. They sing Alasdair Clayre's 'Train Song' (so appropriate for today's post). You can preview the song on iTunes and get more info about the album at Dark Was the Night.

If that wasn't news enough, Feist is going to collaborate with Wilco. According to an article from Pitchfork News, "Everyone who's heard the song has been 'blown away." Well, yeah, it's Feist and Wilco. Read the full article here.

Finally, Pitchfork also posted their guide to upcoming spring releases.
A few highlights:
04-14: Death Cab for Cutie: The Open Door EP [Atlantic]
04-21: Super Furry Animals: Dark Days/Light Years [XL Recordings]
04-28: Wilco: Ashes of American Flags [Nonesuch] [DVD]
05-19: Iron & Wine: Around the Well [Sub Pop]
06-16: Tiny Masters of Today: Skeletons [Mute]
