(SPECIAL BONUS F-TRAIN/PARK SLOPE EPISODE!) With Daniel and Kelli moving from their lovely brownstone abode in Park Slope (right off the F-Train) to a new loft in Williamsburg, it's time for a special F-Train/Park Slope episode. First the outstanding nearby old-timey western/bluegrass outfit known as The Cobble Hillbillies (an awesome name for a western band based in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn) did their ode to our shared connection to the world: the "F-Train" from their self-titled debut EP (iTunes, eMusic, Amazon). Next another local band who plays a lot on the F-Train and various platforms around Brooklyn called The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn did an old favorite standard of mine "I'll Fly Away" from their album Good Night Harry. Then Park Slope and Williamsburg based, TSiMH favorites The Might Be Giants did "Brooklyn" which name-checks both the F and the L trains, as well as the Gowanus Canal (respek!), from their Venue Songs album (TMBG digital store). Next the late great Elliott Smith did the song "Bled White" about riding the F-Train from his album XO (iTunes, Amazon). Then ex-Soul Cougher Mike Doughty did "Thank You, Lord, for Sending Me the F Train" from his double-album Skittish / Rockity Roll (iTunes, eMusic, Amazon). Then Ben Kweller (who lives down the street) did a song called "My Apartment" about his, well, apartment, and taking the F to and from it, found on his album On My Way (iTunes, Amazon). And finally my favorite Death Cab for Cutie song and one of the most listened to songs in my iTunes circa 2001-02, about the final destination of Brooklyn-bound F-Trains "Coney Island", from their The Photo Album (iTunes, Amazon). This episode features a clip from Bill Hicks talking about his apartment in NYC from his album Love, Laughter, and Truth (iTunes, Amazon).
