We are shaking it up a bit in terms of songs on a given day. Call it the Ickey Shuffle of sorts- we’ll get through the whole Sweet Sixteen, but I’m mixing up the order of the matches. We have a great set of songs still alive but as we know, there can only be one. Let’s go.
To kick things off, our premier match-up features The Avett Brothers taking on Of Monsters and Men as “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise” matches up against “Little Talks.” Refreshing to see some third millennium entrants this deep.
The second match is sure to invite some commentary. “1901” by Phoenix tags up against “Australia” by The Shins for a fun fight.
Playlist here– votes due by 8 PM on Tuesday night. We’re moving to four a day this round to stretch things out until Nos gets back from Hungary. Best of luck to all songs!
