Coffee shops, kind of like bars, are morally obligated to have awesome music thats why were no huge fan of Cocoa Bar, which to this day still plays Dave Matthews Band. But we have to hand it to Starbucks (yes, were complimenting Starbucks). In an obvious ploy to woo hipsters, they asked indie darlings like David Cross, Chlo Sevigny, Dave Eggers, and Beck to pick their favorite songs by Sonic Youth you know, pretty much the best band ever for a compilation CD that will be sold only at the 'Bucks. If the chain shows this much good taste in those new bevies its about to launch, well be sipping them every day.
