As attached as I am to synths and such, my poison of choice has long been (and will most likely always be) loud guitars, cheap organ, and crappy production values. Hence, this particular playlist.

My credibility re: these preferences got a little better when I moved to across the state to Memphis for college and started funneling my minimum-wage paychecks directly into Shangri-La Records and Goner's retail shop. What follows is a mix of nuggets both old and new, although most of these picks are skewed toward the garage rockers of the mid-South, for old times' sake.
