Buried In A Good Mix Tape #2...

Earlier this week, I got the urge to work on another mix for my brother. A lot of what I used incorporates some new music I acquired along with other tracks he might enjoy. Mostly, I was hoping that he hadn't heard a lot of this yet. It seems like I always end up trying to unify the last 40 years into these tight collections and hope they work. It's true. I do.

This time, I didn't really have time to go the cassette route, so this is a CD-R. I'm calling it "SIDE A." Here's the playlist:

Brian Eno & David Byrne - America Is Waiting (My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, 1981, reissued 2006)
The Gutter Twins - All Misery/Flowers (Saturnalia, 2008)
The Monkees - Writing Wrongs (The Birds, The Bees, The Monkees, 1968)
Mike Patton - Car Radio (FM) (A Perfect Place, 2008)
Beastie Boys - Nervous Assistant (Aglio e Olio EP, 1996)
The Kinks - Nothin' In The World Can Stop Me Worryin' 'Bout That Girl (Kinda Kinks, 1965)
Sic Alps - Dr. Bag and the Pomade Nature Giants (A Long Way Around To A Shortcut, 2008)
Fantômas - 04/13/05 Wednesday (Suspended Animation, 2005)
Frank Zappa - "This Is Phaze III"(Civilization Phaze III, 1994)
The Black Angels - Science Killer (Directions To See A Ghost, 2008)
Miles Davis - Footprints (Miles Smiles, 1966)
Triclops! - Lovesong For The Botfly (Out Of Africa, 2008)
Tool - Useful Idiot (Ænima, 1996)
Menomena - Strongest Man In The World (I Am The Fun Blame Monster!, 2004)
Louis Armstrong - Summer Time (With Ella Fitzgerald) (Butter & Egg Man, 2002)
Tom Waits - Shake It (Real Gone, 2004)
Jonny Greenwood - Convergence (Bodysong, 2003)
Jonny Greenwood - Proven Lands (There Will Be Blood, 2007)
Ween - Captain (Quebec, 2003)
Albert Ayler - Our Prayer (The House That Trane Built, recorded 1967, compiled and released 2006)
Paul McCartney - 222 (Memory Almost Full-Bonus Disc Edition, 2008)

I have a confession. I made this mix and it got me laid. Apparently, I am cooler, thanks to your site. Did it get your brother laid too?

Don't get the Monkees track - but I kept it in.

New Selections — Kal Marks, Rosa Bordallo, NOUS, Casanova, Anne Müller, Red Spells Red, FITTED

Apologies for the quiet September. My time was needed everywhere but here. That said, I'm happy to end the month with some good singles ...
