Okay, suppose you wanted to make a mix tape for a road trip down the California Coast.
Consider the following song as your model: Yo La Tengo - Today is the Day.
Acoustic, slow, downbeat, very very very calm. As calm as possible. Sentimental. Lyrics-oriented. Guitars. Quiet. Indie is good.
Can you recommend a few songs like this? I need to make a 12-15 song mix CD. I want her to love it.
Other songs to give you direction: The XX - VCR. Damien Rice - Volcano.
People she generally likes (but ideally few or very obscure songs from these people): Bonnie Prince Billy, Yo La Tengo, Sufjan Stevens, The XX, Damien Rice, Jose Gonzalez, Neutral Milk Hotel, Wilco, Sun Kill Moon, Bright Eyes, etc.

...I love Piers Faccini's music...a bit like Nick Drake...but more upbeat...
I tell You a secret...
...here as We lie
under the bridge...
...under the sky
...to the clouds
I have climbed...
...to be with You
sweet Love of mine...
...there's no place to go
and nothing left to show...
...when the seed is sown
come the harvest...

trying to find a song name or artist
i heard a song several years ago. i dont remember who it was or what it was called. it was a live acoustic duet w/ some guy and girl singing. it had like a semi funky indie soul coffee shop sound too it, bongo drum and upright bass maybe. the only lyric i remember is halfway through the song he says something like "i know he was with you last night because i heard you call his name" and the girl sings "Oh my god". i was thinking maybe ben harper but i couldnt find it on any of his songs i looked up. i know its not much to work with but if anyone could help me i would appreciate it. thanks.
