Transformative Weather

Several months ago, I dumped a bunch of songs into a shuffle playlist and called it "Transformative Weather": things that reminded me of Welcome to Night Vale in some way, things I'd just been listening to then, a couple Dylan covers that I really like and that had come up on shuffle again recently, and some other things that just seemed to fit.

I later refined it into an actual listen-in-this-order playlist, and in celebration of catching up on my episode reactions, I've put it on YouTube, because that is a thing one can do these days. As usual, I have only watched snippets of most of the videos, though I have optimized the start and end times for music-in-background as opposed to video-watching purposes. If you like the songs, support the artists, please.

  1. "Hard To Make It," by Tracy Grammer (could only find a live version; volume is very low)
  2. "Bad Luck," by Langhorne Slim & The Law
  3. "Tallulah," by Company Of Thieves
  4. "Fire In the Canyon," by Fountains Of Wayne
  5. "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go," by Miley Cyrus
  6. "Calamity Song," by The Decemberists (Infinite Jest fans, you need to watch this video; volume is very low)
  7. "Call Me Up," by World Party
  8. "Radioactive," by Imagine Dragons (yes, I used the WtNV trailer version for the YouTube playlist, because the official video does weird things to the song)
  9. "That Old Black Hole," by Dr. Dog
  10. "Long Time Coming," by Delays
  11. "Gimme Sympathy (live)," by Metric
  12. "Chloe," by Grouplove
  13. "With God On Our Side," by K'naan
  14. "Sleep All Summer," by Crooked Fingers
  15. "Love Will Save Your Soul," by Grouplove
  16. "Anna Sun," by Walk the Moon
  17. "Bottled In Cork," by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
  18. "Living in Colour," by Frightened Rabbit
  19. "Graceless," by The National
  20. "Make It Always Be Too Late," by Del Amitri

(The last song is (a) the one I would pick in a heartbeat if the Night Vale folks showed up on my doorstep and asked me to introduce the weather; and (b) so obscure that last time I looked I couldn't find it on YouTube, only live covers that lacked the instrumentation that gives it the full feel. So yay it being up now.)
