A treasured tradition at myboytheriotgirl, every year we each get to program our respective birthday show, disregarding all rules and standards for playlist formatting, and just programming the show with absolute abandon.  This year, Mike’s opted to take a trip in the time-machine/closet back ten years to 2001 to re-listen to a personal favourite album.

So, along with a tracks off the newly released LPs from The Vaccines, The Antlers, Okkervil River, and EMA, you’re going to hear three tracks off of Rilo Kiley‘s 2001 debut album, Take Offs and Landings. The band is now on hiatus (probably forever), but their ability to pen catchy pop songs helped launch the solo careers of Jenny Lewis and Blake Sennett (aka The Elected), two of our favourite artists.

Mike dedicates this show to Rory, the first person to recommend the band to him: “You were right, buddy!”
