My Exit: Dan Sorenson

Dan Drums .jpg

Dan plays with Sugar Cookie. Umm, yeah-- he's the drummer.

Every Monday night our friends at WEXT do this thing called My Exit -- local listeners get to come into the station and program an hour of music. So we thought it'd be fun to find out a little bit about these people and why they picked the songs on their playlist. Here's tonight's person:

Dan Sorensen - local musician with the band Sugar Cookie& Account Manager for a software company.

Musical Taste:
I love all kinds of music really but my favorites are 80's - 90's Alternative and current Indie Rock. Basically anything melodic with a touch of Pop.

Five songs from Dan's show:

The Afghan Whigs - 66 - 1965: One of my favorite albums and this song is one of the standouts. Great atmosphere.

Ben Folds - Not the Same - Rockin' The Suburbs: Ben Folds is great; he is able to combine rock with vulnerability and a sense of humor. A pretty rare mix.

Catherine Wheel - Ma Solituda - Adam and Eve: Great melody, just a very pretty song.

The Cure - The Exploding Boy - Join the Dots, B-Sides and Rarities 1978 -2001: One of my musically formative bands; this song is a B-side from the Head On The Door album that really deserved to make the cut. Great energy and pure unapologetic pop.

Death Cab for Cutie - What Sarah Said - Plans: A beautiful melody with great textures. The driving drums and piano provide great contrast to the vocal. This album is amazing!
