PIMCO has sold all its Treasury holdings. Starbucks is teaming up with Green Mountain Coffee to offer single brew cups.

Here are the songs we played:

  • A Postcard to Nina - Jens LekmanBuy
  • Candy Walls - TrustBuy
  • Out of Gas - Modest MouseBuy
  • Kansai - Ra Ra RiotBuy
  • Baby's Arms - Kurt VileBuy
