No changes to my Songs Haven't Heard list through the weekend. Forgot to cross out Navy Sheets and Crucifixion Cruise last time around, but the substance is real. It remains like this:
Milkcrate Mosh Hot Fries Curves And Nerves Modesto Is Not That Sweet 212-Margarita For Boston Both Crosses Joke About Jamaica Two Handed Handshake 40 Bucks Spectres Soft In The Center A Slight Discomfort Touchless The Bear And The Maiden Fair Runner's High Oaks Records & Tapes Saddle Shoes Look Alive Epaulets Traditional Village
[Edit: Looks like this was the first time I heard Charlemagne In Sweatpants. Weird, I though I'd heard it before. Wasn't on the list originally, though]
...and the grand total of HEARD songs have now grown to 80 sharp, up from 78 (Feelers and Open Door Policy).
Four new songs entered the Heard 20 Times Plus league:
24 - Stuck Between Stations 23 - Chips Ahoy! 23 - Sequestered In Memphis 22 - Your Little Hoodrat Friend 21 - Massive Nights 22 - Constructive Summer 20 - Killer Parties

It’s odd, but I don’t seem to connect with new songs until I’ve heard them live. There were very few on Thrashing that I properly enjoyed when it came out, but since hearing them live, the ones I’ve heard have taken on new significance and I find myself choosing to listen to them more and more.
I'm still holding out for The Only Thing, but seemingly not likely now - I was actually surprised to hear one song from Teeth Dreams.
I would have loved to have heard Epaulets, it's my favourite off the new album and I thought it would become a live staple.
But, minor quibbles, a new song every night - wow!
I'm also a little sad about Epaulets not being in live rotation. It didn't get played in Brooklyn either, same with Traditional Village.
Also surprised that both I Hope This Whole Thing Didn't Frighten You and Spinners have fallen so behind in the pecking order. I'm no big Teeth Dreams fan, but both of those songs were really good live. Especially Spinners. It's hard to look through the setlist and suggest songs I would take out, though. After 25 shows I guess I could do a night without You Can Make Him Like You, Sequestered or The Weekenders, but I understand why they get played every night. And I wouldn't miss the AKM or SS songs for the world.
