A mix for spring: the sudden showers and odd, seemingly misplaced bursts of the most glorious sunlight. Just long enough music to get me to campus, between buildings and back home again.

Track 5 from Human After All
Length: 00:04:48
Year: 2005
Track Description:
Early morning overcast, the clouds roll in with this downtempo gem. This song is so subtle you barely even notice it, despite the fact that the entire song is based around the same repeated hook.

Serves well with a long walk to campus. Huzzah!

Track 8 from 10 Seconds
Length: 00:02:42
Year: 2002
Track Description:
The overcast becomes darker still. You're going to have to play along and chop this song at 48 seconds (ie: cut 'truncate') to ensure a nice segue between tracks. Quickly (and unpredictably) changes moods like a crazy girlfriend.

Track 3 from Team Sleep
Length: 00:03:41
Year: 2005
Track Description:
A song so huge it threatens to consume the clouds. The epicness doesn't really sustain for the entirity of the song, but for the intro alone, it's worth it.

Plus, Zach Hill from Hella drums for them.

Pure mood.

Track 6 from Pinback
Length: 00:03:35
Year: 1999
Track Description:
A song for staring out the window to watch the rain glance off the parked cars.

Track 12 from Mic City Sons
Length: 00:04:21
Year: 1996
Track Description:
This song reminds me of sidestepping and jumping puddles in a fanciful manner. Upbeat but tragic, this song is a sad-bastard gem. Sometimes refered to as 'Half-Right,' this song, despite having inspired a Jimmy Eat World lyric, is pure gold.

7 Deftones : Anniversary of an Uninteresting Event
Another huge, slow-motion rock song. That fucking xylophone just feels like rain.

Track 1 from Free Mars
Length: 00:04:49
Year: 1997
Track Description:
The rain subsides and the light-gray overcast smiles. The fuzziest, warmest guitar you've ever heard towards the end seals the deal.

Still, I'll never understand how Paul d'Amour could leave TOOL for this.

Negative brotha. Taking pictures while you're driving is irresponsible and morally wrong.
