A Conspiracy of Cartographers

Location, location, location. Degrees of latitude. A loosely themed mp3 mix about "place" -- right click, save as and hope you enjoy:

Monkey Swallows the Universe – Sheffield Shanty

The King of France – Mexico

Beirut – Postcards from Italy

Canasta – Slow Down Chicago

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone – Lonesome New Mexican Nights

Beat Radio – Mexico

Bedroom Walls – Somewhere in Newhall

My Enemy - Grönland

Mountain Goats – Raid on Entebbe

Pinback – Manchuria

The Wombats – Moving to New York

The Faraway Places – City of the Ocean

Sufjan Stevens – Niagra Falls

The Physics of Meaning – Oregon, My Only True Friend

Finest Dearest – Idaho

Emperor X – The Citizens of Wichita

The Owls – City Girl

Vehicle Flips - Trouble on the Western Survey

The Bicycles – Paris Be Mine

Kawaii – Happy Planet, Scary People

Dog Traders – Belgium

I think the above works pretty good as a mix. Here are some other great songs that didn't make the final cut -- your "bonus" tracks (as per usual, all mp3s on this site are free and legal and available at the artists' own or label websites):

Low – California

Twin Atlas – State Lines

Tullycraft – Our Days in Kansas

The Promise Ring – The Deep South

Mighty Six Ninety – Northern Border

Cornershop – Battle of New Orleans (Peel Session)

The High Water Marks – Queen of Verlaine

Kinski – Rhode Island Freakout

The Mexicos – Grenoble
