Welcome. These are called mixes. If you like the artists, go buy their music. I might do that too! More likely, if you like the artist, go see their live show.

Everything's Eventual

I don't know how i missed it, but this is my 101st post on this blog! Woo! A Milestone for sure. A lot has been shared! Yay! Anyhow, this mix is great. Hands down. At first i crafted two mixes, but was shy about 20 minutes. Instead of adding filler, I went through and brutally chopped out an hour of music. What's left is what you have here. I may eat/use the leftovers later. We'll see. I'm very excited about this mix though. It's rather long at 25 tracks, but that just means there's more for you to love. Hope you enjoy!

The Aleon Craft Remix of Matt & Kim's "Cameras" should be enjoyed by such a larger part of the masses. Please spread this track!
Clay Otis & The Showbiz Lights is a project based out of midtown Memphis, TN. I love the sound so much! It's very fun, which reminds me, in general, of Clay. These are rough mixes, so look forward later to a full length.
Tracks 2 and 3 are drumtastic!
Thee Tom Hardy is a 21 year old protege of 9th Wonder.
I like the direction that Iron & Wine is taking with this new track.
Velvet Davenport. i dunno what to say here. "Lilly Girl" is my shit.

Without further mush mouthing -

I asked for submissions for the cover and you guys responded outstandingly. Look for other submissions to be used in the near future. Most of them are way too weird to turn away! The cover that I used was submitted by Jim, but was taken by a friend of his, Joel, living in Utrecht, Nederlands. Check out the original picture's caption! http://picasaweb.google.com/ceph0761/Utrecht#5544625229958876930 I couldn't turn that down! Thanks for the support! Harpy Hloidyas!

Different One

Hello again and thanks for joining me.

The following mix is unlike every other mix that I have done before. it contains no rock or hip hop at all. It's made up of minimalist, ambient, and experimental music. There are no primary vocals on any of these tracks, and as such I would ask that(if at all possible) you listen to these songs late at night on headphones. This mix was inspired by some deep insomnia that struck me a few nights back. I hate the feeling of knowing that I've stayed up waaaay too late when i hear birds chirping and see the sun's orange husk bumbling over the twilight. Anyhow...

The first track was sampled most recently by Kanye West for his track "Blame Game" featuring John Legend contained within the dark twisted whatever whatever fantasy album.
The second track was used in the film 28 Days Later, additionally it was inspired by the Apollo launches and expeditions.
Tracks three, five, six, and ten are personal favorites. The Polmo Polpo track in particular always stirs some deep sadness within me. I once attempted listening to Eno's Music For Airports while in an airport. I find it much more suitable to the bedroom.
The ninth track was sampled by RJD2(I forget what song he used it in..."The Proxy" maybe?).

Don't let Ben Frost scare you at the end. If you are falling asleep with this on, you might wake up during one of his tracks...

Hope you don't mind this supremely weird one off. I'll be back to normal mixes soon :)

Have a wonderful night. The cover is Salvador Dali's Sleep.

Red and No Name

Sounds like a Kris Kristofferson song.  Anyhow, here are two fine mixes.  Standard fare, really.

Highlights for me:
Casa Castile, who i know absolutely nothing about.
Mice Parade
Bedrooms of the Nation
Caribou Vibration Ensemble, which was a group that Dan Snaith got together for ATP in Monticello, NY in 2009.  It consisted of Four Tet, Marshall Allen(of Sun Ra), Koushik(Stones Throw), and had a total of 4 drummers.
I tried to use relative no names that not many have heard of(excepting Caribou, Girls, on the rise Tame Impala and possibly Pissed Jeans/Mice Parade).

Smoke DZA
Wave Machines
Dark Party

That's not to say that the rest are worthless.  I think both of these are pretty solid mixes.  The rock mix ends on a louder note and the electronic one ends on a weirder one.  There's plenty of pop and happiness to go around too though...
No Name:

Weird Pains, Fat Swag

Don't feel very wordy, as I just woke up. Hope you enjoy these.

Notes on Weird Pains:(Rock Mix)
John Darnielle of Mountaingoats fame makes up half of The Extra Lens(formerly Extra Glens).
Citay is comprised of ex-Piano Magic and ex-The Fucking Champs.
The way the guy from Porcelain Raft pronounces "Tip" makes me giggle snort sometimes.
The Eno tracks are both from his new Warp Records debut.
The primary producer behind Donso is Ed Banger Records' Insane-O son, Krazy Baldhead.
The Reatard/Deerhunter tracks are from a split 7 in. from 2008.

Weird Pains

Notes on Fat Swag:(Electronic/Rap Mix)
The James Blake track is a Feist cover, and is the initial single from his upcoming full length. I'm superly on this guy's jock.
I don't know anything about Loden, but that first track makes me supremely happy.
The Big L track is not necessarily a new one. He died in 1999, but the label powers that be have seen fit to lift old verses of his and add new production underneath. This is a re-work of one of my favorite tracks of his "The Danger Zone".
Child Rebel Soldier is the bastard spawn of Kanye West, Pharell, and Lupe Fiasco. The first hint of the group's existence surfaced in 2007 or 08(I can't recall) on a Kanye Mixtape, but only as a snippet. Nothing was ever fully released until this track last week.
Teebs is a young up and comer on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint.

Oct's Arms

I snagged a dance party pic from my facebook, made a lotus and an almost Shiva. The name of this mix is admittedly dumb, but how many of them aren't? Anyhow, about the music...
There's little here by way of dance or hip hop. There's only one track that I'd consider experimental. This is just of note.

I'd never heard The intelligence until I read a pitchfork review of their latest album, Males. I checked it out and liked the whole album so much that I put three of the tracks here for your enjoyment. I can track down the full album again if you would like. Just comment. The Deerhunter tracks(excluding the remix) are off of their latest, Halcyon Digest. If you want a link for that, I'm happy to provide. Navajo Bixby has been seen around FAGL before on the Strand 1 Mix . I don't know much about French Horn Rebellion, but I bet you'll like it. Prettiness follows with Sunset, Houses, and a new Belle and Sebastian track. The biggest WTF moment of this mix has to come from El-P and Chin Chin singer Wilder Zoby. Apparently Zoby recorded the synth solo toward the end of the track in one take at 5 in the morning while incredibly drunk and stoned. Nothing like this has ever come out of El-P's fingers before.

I <3 TOBACCO(and anti-pop). I know you're heartbroken because there's only one mix here. I couldn't bring myself to plow your ears with a thousand songs at this time. Anyway, here: Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Abandoned Hospitals and The Ram of Destiny (lol)

I'm bringing 2 mixes today. One is the standard mix of electronic and hip hop music. The other is standard rock mix. For those that dislike metal and ear piercing garage rock, rejoice for there is none to little here(the PJ Harvey track maybe...). For those that do love it, I'll make it up to you later.

Abandoned Hospitals:(Hip hop/ electronic)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Soooo many tracks that I am really loving: The most laid back funk ever comes in the form of Jimix's Blackstreet "No Diggity" remix. The Prince-ly "Hot Raw Sec" of Jimmy Edgar is a track that probably made Chromeo simultaneously nut. TOKiMONSTA is a student of Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder Collective. Some serious words get spat in the Aleon Craft posse cut, the Black Milk track, and Ski Beatz collabo with Jean Grae and Jay Electronica(Wow!). Wait until the end of "Yoga Flame" from Aleon Craft for a huge dose of Stankonia era Outkast weirdness. I love it!
The Riz MC track is also a jam. The Rocketnumbernine track is taken from a recent Four Tet mix. I had to jack the track as I couldn't find an mp3 of it ANYWHERE and I am a master of finding things... :( Oh well, it'll do!

The Ram of Destiny:(Roxorz)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Arrow" from Katryn Calder(of The New Pornographers-she was Neko Case's replacement) is a most excellent track to wake up to. Dude from Wakey Wakey is on one Tree Hill. I have no idea what that is, but i bet my little sister does. You may recall Maps & Atlases for their track "Solid Ground" which I included on It's Miller Time . Anyhow, they're an awesome band of what seems like proggy math rock masters making pop inflections. Think a cute Don Cab(possible?).

Some Memphis love goes out to 3D Acid Glasses. I really like their track "Sloppy Surfing". The Fresh & Onlys have tightened the Hell up. I likes it(they're playing Hi Tone in October for 8 dollars! Come on!). Restless People is a group of 4 dudes that have previously worked together on projects such as Tanlines and Professor Murder(if neither of those names mean anything to you, please ask me to upload them for you). The new women album is pretty grand(they play Hi Tone in October also). The Caribou track is a live one from a recent Daytrotter session. If you don't like jammy, kraut rock drone....step off of it. If you enjoy that kind of thing, enjoy the Women and Caribou tracks(almost 12 and a half minutes of goodness!!).

BONUS ROUND VIDEO(on the actual blog only http://fuckagreatlake.blogspot.com )

Theophilus London - Oops(Tweet Cover) Produced by Hudson Mohawke

I've said too much, too much. Before i go though, both of the covers came from Dustin Cruseturner circa 2004 in our adventures around Memphis. Can you guess where Abandoned Hospitals came from? If you guessed St. Francis, you guessed wrong. The Ram of Destiny lives atop my mantle now. Her name is Smermy Smarmy. Now I've really said too much.

The Third of Three: Cat Love

Welcome back! I hope you've had enough time to enjoy the first two installments of this trilogy of great. This one is jam packed for all sorts. Track two is a revived project of John Darnielle of Mountain Goats fame. Got a bit of Memphis love here(and no, I'm not necessarily counting Elvis considering the album that his track came from was called L.A. Gems volume something something); featured...Black Sunday is Alicja Trout of Lost Sounds fame, up and comers Magic Kids are present, and the always enjoyable Holly Cole. Wizard Smoke is from Atlanta. I got that track off of a compilation of all ATL bands/rappers. Several of the other artists were on the first mix of the trilogy(Stanza). I'll quit blabbering. There's a lot here. I tried to keep the heavy at the end... Plenty of pop is present, I promise...

The Second of Three: HAZElwood

Second Installment! Yum! I hope that you enjoyed the first. This mix is filled with dancy psych yumminess from the likes of Caribou on down to the grooves of Fantastic Mr Fox. Upstarts aplenty; Lorn is a new releasee on Flying Lotus' Brain Feeder imprint, Kingdom has done work with A-Trak's Fool's Gold label, and i have no real idea who Ernest Ellis is, but I did his stuff.

I tried to range this mix, as I do with most. There're tracks for techno purists, as well as adoptees of bastard sounds. Hope you enjoy!

The last installment, the rock mix, will be out in a few days. Let me know what you liked/disliked here.

The First of Three: Monster

This'll be the first of three mixes that I'll be releasing over the next week and a half.  My schedule on here has been out of whack.  I hope you enjoyed the albums I uploaded a few weeks back.  You'll find some of the artists within these mixes.  The majority of tracks within these mixes are pretty new though.

The first mix is called Monster and it's roughly 82% Hip Hop.  The other 18% is 1 track by Mr. Oizo & one of the dudes from Justice, and 3 tracks by the guys in Lazer Sword.

Let me know what you love or hate!

See you again soon with an electronic mix, followed shortly thereafter by my typical rock mix.

Th Nn (The Nine)

Dear Friends, countrymen, strangers, internet fiends, and lovers,

It's been quite a while since I've doled out full albums. As you may(or may not) know, in the past when I have posted full albums, I have done so because I found them to be essential. Well, simply put, this has not changed. I find these nine to be no exception, and fully endorse all of them. For this bout, I'm going mainly electronic and all weird. Additionally, I've tried to bring you albums as diverse as I plausibly can while still making sure they're albums that I truly love(and not fake internet love for cred).

I can't stress enough that these are all great in their own right. If you don't feel like anything strikes you, I would still ask you to check out SMKA and Mount Kimbie. Let me know what you think of any of these.

Fucking Flight, Nasty Beale, and Random Fandom

edit: this was initially supposed to be up last Tuesday, but due to a Portland vacation and slow uploading speeds, it's late. Sorry, but here...take this.

Goofy titles in check. I think I have three really solids here. The first mix is all about poppier music. I'm not talking top 40. I'm just saying they're not scuzzed out with wailing distortions. That stuff is on the third mix. I figured since I had an overabundance of new music(thank you new internet connection), I'd split everything up to appease to listeners that align themselves more with one sound over another. The second mix is a mix of electronic music and hip hop. That's fairly standard for me. Nasty Beale's cover is dedicated to Thomas Nast(while using images created by him).

Fucking Flight:
This mix goes out to those that love poppier music(ie my girlfriend)

Aloe Blacc-I Need A Dollar

Twin Sister-All Around and Away We Go

Cheers, dudes and dudettes! Comments are welcomed!

end piece: my favorite new Memphis band is The Sultana. I like Sunglasses, but at the same time i recognize their Animal Collective worship and try to move past it. I wish Best Coast put a little more into the lyrics of her Converse jam. I can understand though. Selling out must be pretty hard... Early Department of Eagles sounds just as lush as new Dept of Eagles. I like the horns a lot in Suckers "Martha". One of my nicknames is "Jerry", which is why that song is here. I really respect Mount Kimbie, and view them as one of my new favorites. Captain Ahab is hilarious. I love the shift at the end of "How To Party". Sorry if you have HBO and have already heard "I Need a Dollar" about a thousand times already. Dude from White Flight used to be a member of The Anniversary. I'm really liking Beach Fossils, but i guess everyone and their internet dad is. I dig the Vandelles as kind of a place to bury strangers light. Got a lot of rock out on the third mix between awesome color and unknown mortal orchestra. I threw in Sonic Boom to remind myself that everything that sounds like that wasn't made from 2006-2010. While I'm not crazy about the new MIA, I(am not going to finish that thought).

Space Animals(Bear and Cat)

so, dudes, it's been a couple of months and I apologize in a most huge manner. I was out of the country for a long long while, and then internet incapacitated for a few weeks as well. I do so hope that you will enjoy these. I realize that very little of this is freshly released, but I'm hoping quality will shine through where fantastic newity may fall short. Again, sorry for the most heinous delay/dearth. I plan to get back onto an active schedule starting today.

without more jabbering, Space Cat(more rock oriented) Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Big K.R.I.T.-Country Shit
Ellen Allien-Our Utopie
Growing-Massive Dropout
A-Trak-Twerk That Driver
Deadmau5-Alone With You
Bear In Heaven-Ultimate Satisfaction(The Field Remix)

I included a couple of Ty Segall tracks off of his latest in order to show his progression.
Faves for me are Dead Gaze, Bakesale(local love), both Ty tracks, the Theophilus London track(thanks Jimix), MBV, new Matthew Dear, both remixes of HEALTH, James Blake, Guilty Simpson, Mount Kimbie, and Deadmau5. It's easy to zone out to the Deadmau5 track. If you think you recognize Steve Mason's voice, perhaps you are correct. He was the singer of (High Fidelity) famous band The Beta Band.

Hope you enjoy! Comments are always welcomed. If you ever need assistance in finding any artist that you've liked from these mixes, let me know and I'll try to hook you up.

P.S. Bonus points if you recognize the space bear from somewhere.

dudes, enjoy.

Hope this works for you. Let me know if you have any issues.

It's Miller Time!

Welcome back, all! I'm excited for this installment. It features a varied selection of sounds, as well as a few old goodies(the Polaris track you'll probably recognize if you were around in the early-mid 90s). The background of the cover is a picture I took in Miller Valley during my recent trip to Milwaukee. The foreground is just random crap from my hard drive that I have accumulated over the past months. The people with the dogs are wearing clothing made from dog fur. How fun is that?

Now to talk about the music:
Favorites for me are Maps & Atlases, Theophilus London's snazzy reworking of The Very Best's "Julia", my roommate's remix of 8 Ball and MJG's "Don't Flex", Fanfarlo, the sunny sonic slopes of Sleepy Sun, and that new Sleigh Bells single. While I say those are my favorites, I really quite enjoy a good 7/8 of these. A few of these are singles from Record Store Day.

Weird tidbit: The producer of Sleigh Bells used to be the lead guitarist in Poison the Well(the Po Th We track that's on here is from 2002). Mark the difference.

Anyhow, here's the music: Click either picture to download the mix.

Psychedelic Babby Art Volume 1 & 2

so hey,
I'm so pumped about both of these mixes! I feel like they're both simply spilling over with excellence. I'm biased as f*ck, yet still... Volume one is all electronic with the usual mix of whatever I get my hands on(never drum and bass). volume two picks up where the first one spills over, raging out with neo-disco squelches of new LCD Soundsystem and Holy Fuck. I hate Charlotte Gainsbourg as an actress. This is an absolute for me, so I figured I might hate her music as well. I should've listened more to her genealogy rather than trying to judge her music by her acting. Her music is fantastic. Witness here the same track twice, once redone by Matthew Dear. Pure beauty, I say. New HEALTH is great. It's the lone original track from their upcoming remix disc. Live Bulletproof Vests from the Stax Museum in lovely Memphis, Tennessee. Psychedelic Horseshit plays Hi Tone on Monday 4-26-10(if you're in Memphis...). The weather outside is most likely beautiful no matter where you are, so I encourage you to blast either of these mixes whether you're jogging, biking, strolling, driving, or even indoor/outdoor house cleaning(in my case today). I double loaded on a couple of the artists here. I did this in the case of the Black Keys to show how different their newest album sounds.

In the case of Blank Dogs, I'm fond of what they're doing but insist that Moroder did it better... The voice on the Kavinsky track is Lovefoxxx from CSS(if you're wondering).
The Electronic One:

I won't bother with anymore typing. Grab what you will. Let me know what you liked, loved, hated, etc. I'm always willing to feed more tracks to anyone.


As with last week, I had a late addition that I decided to not put on here(I included last week's bonus round within these mixes and will probably do the same with this track next time). If on facebook, go to http://fuckagreatlake.blogspot.com for viewing pleasure.

What is it

I started off a little heavy and then settled into a mode of ass shaking, followed shortly thereafter by head nodding, and finally nightmares.  Favorites for me are Boris, Dead Gaze, HEALTH/Javelin, Andy Ellison, local Memphis favorites The Bulletproof Vests, Arches, and Peasant. That's just me though. Hopefully you find something to enjoy as well.

The end? Comments of love, hatred, happiness, or anger are always welcomed.

BONUS ROUND: I found out about this too late to add it onto the mix, but it's so enjoyable that I had to spread it out there anyhow.
