May 2011 – a playlist

It has been ages since I last posted a playlist, hasn’t it? It doesn’t mean I haven’t made any since my Valentine’s day playlist for tortured souls, I just haven’t been in the right mood to post them, but here is one. Somebody (who puts out great records that you should buy) made me an awesome playlist not long ago. I have been listening to it a lot and found about some great bands thanks to it, so I was reminded of the power of the mixtape and thought I’d share my latest with you. I know it’s already May and I’m supposed to be making summer mixes, but I felt like something calm and slightly melancholic, so I’m defying the norm. I’m sure a pop-punk summer playlist will follow soon.
The download includes a .pdf file with the cover that you can just print, fold and insert into a plastic sleeve. I’ve also added it to 8tracks for those who want to listen first. As usual, if you like the artists buy the records, go to their shows and buy them Jägermeister shots, they’re all rad.

Tracklist 
01. P.S. Eliot – Sore Subject
02. The Love of Everything – Unsizeable
03. Lucero – Can’t Feel a Thing
04. Mogwai – The Sun Smells Too Loud
05. Laura Stevenson and the Cans – Nervous Rex
06. Mountain Goats – If You See Light
07. Nana Grizol – For Things That Haven’t Come Yet
08. Nick Drake – Things Behind the Sun
09. Pavement – Heaven is a Truck
10. Pixies – I bleed
11. Silkworm – The Lure of Beauty

It’s that time of the year again (a playlist for cold weather)

It feels like every autumn/winter sees a new melancholic playlist/mix CD from me. This is this year’s. I don’t have any music on my computer at the moment, so I can only offer a spotify link.

 
01. The Velvet Underground – Sunday Morning
02. Jason Anderson – I am like snow to you
03. Braid – Always Something There to Remind Me
04. Archers of Loaf – Floating Friends
05. Elliott Smith – The Biggest Lie
06. Texas is the Reason – Antique
07. Múm – A little bit, Sometimes
08. Guided by Voices – Hold on Hope

11. Cap’n Jazz – Basil’s Kite
12. Casiotone for the Painfully Alone – Don’t They Have Payphones Wherever You Were Last Night
13. Mogwai – Dial: Revenge

If you want something to download, why not check out last year’s playlist? The cover is my blog’s header, and you can download it here (part I) and here (part II). I made it in January last year and it still gets played often. I swear it’s only a coincidence that the same Elliott Smith song got on both of them

Untitled Mix CD


bigger cover @ flickr

It snowed yesterday. I hadn’t seen snow since I was living in Munich, and that mixed together with the fact that exams are about to start and I feel a bit overwhelmed about everything put me in a really melancholic mood. So, what did I do? Make a playlist to go with it, of course. I burnt it on a CD, made the cover you can see above and listened to it a million times. I officially declare it my revision CD.

Tracklist:
01. Do Make Say Think – Executioner Blues
02. Death Cab For Cutie – A Lack Of Colour
03. Logh – Exit
04. God Is An Astronaut – Fireflies and Empty Skies
05. The Jim Yoshii Pile-Up – A Deep Deep Lake
06. Lucero – Sad And Lonely
07. Bright Eyes – The Center Of The World
08. A Day In Black And White – Forward/Backward
09. Pygmy Lush – Frozen Man

2008: What I’ve been listening to

I have been complaining about end of the year lists for about 2 weeks now, when I realised that it is only now that I’m ready to make a 2007 list, not a year ago. That’s why this year I decided to make a playlist instead. These are not the best songs of 2008 and most of them definitely do not belong to what I consider to be the best albums of the year so far. It’s just a collection of songs released in 2008 that I have enjoyed a lot and listened to compulsively. They’re not meant to be in a certain order.

Off With Their Heads – Self Checkout from From The Bottom
Russian Red – Cigarettes from I Love Your Glasses
Brook Pridemore – Fake Brains from the Ghost Mice/Brook Pridemore split
Life At These Speeds – Younger Monkey from the Life At These Speeds/Thank God split
The Gaslight Anthem – Great Expectations from The 59 Sound
Adorno – Theoretically Driven from the Adorno/End Of A Year split 7″
Algernon Cadwallader – Some Kind Of Cadwallader from their self titled album
The Ergs! – Piltdown Man from That’s It…Bye
Iron Chic – Steel Wall Method from their demo
Sinaloa – Ashes of Giants from Oceans of Islands
The Birds Are Spies, They Report To The Trees – Fixer-Upper from Single Series
The Mountain Goats – Heretic Pride from Heretic Pride
Conor Oberst – Lenders In The Temple from his self titled album
This Bike Is A Pipebomb – Roscoe Arbuckle from Convertible
Mike Hale – Love Is Disappointment from Broken With No Hope
Kids Explode – Ask Me from the 4-way shokei/Petethepiratesquid/The Falcon Five/Kids Explode split
Chris Wollard & The Ship Thieves – Oh Whatever from the self titled album
Tilly And The Wall – Dust Me Off from O
Okkervil River – On Tour With Zykos from The Stand Ins

Bands I’ve listened to the most according to lastfm:
1. The Gaslight Anthem
2. Jawbreaker
3. Braid
4. Defiance, Ohio
5. Mogwai
6. Hot Water Music
7. Nothington
8. The Weakerthans
9. Life at These Speeds
10. Gunmoll
11. Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson
12. Okkervil River
13. Kids Explode
14. Do Make Say Think
15. Lemuria

Happy songs for happy days

The other day I managed to finish an essay that I had been trying to write for weeks. After doing an all-nighter on a Saturday night for the first time in my life I was so happy and felt so liberated that I made a playlist, burnt it on a CD and listened to it a million times. It still makes me so happy that I want to spread the happiness by leaving it here for anybody who wants to download it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I am enjoying it.
