    Albums named after places

    I recently listened to an album called Delaware by the Drop Nineteens, a good shoegaze/indie rock album. Which led to a list of other albums named after states. I listened to Massachusetts by the Scud Mountain Boys and New Hampshire by Scissorfight, I also heard California by Mr. Bungle a while ago.


    What are some of your favorite albums you've heard named after places? Cities, states, streets, etc.

    Illinois - Sufjan Stevens


    Baja - Chris Isaak


    Strangeland - Keane 


    ETA: These are not necessarily favorites, although the Keane album is. They're just locations that came to mind.

    Lake Street Dive - Bad Self Portraits

    My new favorite local band, on the verge of making it big Nationally.   Rachael Price is awesome. I think they're playing at Newport this year, so you folks who go to that should check them out.

     

    So Scissorfight, that's a blast from the past. I was chatting briefly with Kevin, their old drummer, at a Family Jewels show at the P&S last year.  Like the Jewels better. Kevin has a small kit, the kick drum is a suitcase.  And he'll use the wall as another thing to hit with the sticks.

    Thanks.   I'm not a real fan of SS, but I did listen to Illinois a few times b/c a guy that used to post here was a huge fan.
