Track 1 is Sun Airway playing Oh Naoko. Dreamy sound and vocal however better song than others I've heard recently. Same boring beat and oohhing in the background but little more purpose to the song. Okay tune.

The Luyas play Too Beautiful To Work. Perky up beat Dream Pop song. Zooms along with better synthesizer noises than others. Less soppy and dull, better than some.

Silly Bears from Akron;Family. Poor sound quality does not hide experimental nature and dreamy messy sound. Folky beat and cheeky playing is suffocated when the vocals are added. Have to believe this is terrible production not intended product. Not good.

Track 4 is I Like The Way You Walk by The Donkeys. Opens as nice singer songwriter with band song, clean male vocal and subdued backing. Electric guitar is allowed to roam between verses, the band joins in later. Neat song, sounds like The Donkeys wants to play real music. Right now that is good.

John Vanderslice plays Sea Salt. Another s/sw style song that sounds very nice. Mellow and deliberate, quality backing musicians apparently playing real instruments, very cool.

The Tallest Man On Earth (Kristian Matsson) plays Like The Wheel. Non-Swedish sounding singer w/very slow acoustic piano number. Voice is not for me, song is beautiful.

The Good Ones play Sara. I am going to steal a description from their web site. The Good Ones is a trio of Rwandan genocide survivors who play joyous, acoustic love songs written in the ancient local, Kinyarwanda street dialect of their nation's capital, Kigali.

Track 8 is The Mermaid Parade from Phosphorescent(Matthew Houck). Throw-back singer songwriter sound, steel guitar over great picking guitar and cool lyric. Great song. Reminds me a little of Steve Goodman.

It appears Dead Oceans removed the first copy of their free sampler and re-issued it. Identical sampler same songs for the first 9 tracks, the last track is by same artist, Lear. This version has a song called Lear in Love the first version contained Lear, in the Park.
