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.

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)

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.

James Blake-CMYK
Black Chow-Purple Smoke

HEALTH-Nice Girls(Little Loud Remix)
Guilty Simpson-New Heights
James Blake-I'll Stay
HEALTH-Before Tigers(Gold Panda Remix)

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.
