December Blues Mixtape



A mixtape for those cold nights and long long journeys
home.

01. Come Wander With Me - Jeff Alexander
"Come Wander with Me" was written for an episode of
the American television anthology series The Twilight
Zone. Sung by the actress Bonnie Beecher herself.
The whole "Come Wander with Me" episode is available
here.

02. Strange Form Of Life - Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Another gem from the man who does very little wrong.
Go HERE for a live version on Conan O Brien.
03. Milk and Honey - Jackson C. Frank
This and the first song I first heard from Vincent Gallo's
"Brown Bunny" film. It doesn't get must better than this.
04. Black Flowers - Yo La Tengo
I orginally had "Feel Like Going Home" but it slowed/
depressed precendings down too much. This also capture
the mood I was going for. Both songs for their last and ill
say it, their best album to date "I Am Not Afraid Of You
And I Will Beat Your Ass"
05. C4 - Si Schroeder
Seen him at electric picnic this year, he blow the house
down. Great stuff.
06. Back In Time - Au Revoir Simone
You should know the story about these ladies by now. I
think it's safe to say, classic song from a classic album.
07. The Ice Storm - The Go! Team
A great intrumental from their Austrailan tour Ep.
08. Snowball - Devo
Love this so much, it could even my favourite Devo song.

09. Warm Night - The Concretes
More Swedish greatness.
10. I'm into Something Good - Langley Schools Music Project

Sweet sweet cover of Herman's Hermits classic song by school
chorus. The recordings were made from 1976-77 by Canadian
music teacher Hans Fenger in a school gymnasium in Langley,
British Columbia.
11. The Ballad Of Helenkeller & Rip Van Winkle - The Moldy
Peaches
An other classic song from a classic album.
12. By Your Side - Coco Rosie
The video says everything.

13. Starbust - Frank Sinatra

"The melody haunts my reverie..."
14. Christmas Time Is Here - Vince Guaraldi Trio
From "A Charlie Brown Christmas".
15. Im On Nights - Richard Hawley
The first song I ever heard of Mr. Hawley and still probably my
favourite song of his. Oh hear that moterbike engine purrrr.
16. (Looking For) The Heart Of Saturday Night - Tom Waits

I have more Tom Waits records than I really should have, but
when he gets it right, boy can he really gets it right.
17. 90-Mile Water Wall - The National
The only song they didn't play at their recent gig that I hoped they
might play.
18. The Fox In The Snow - Belle & Sebastian
Yet again an other classic song from a classic album.
19. Rich Wife Full Of Happiness - Bonnie "Prince" Billy
"I woke up fat and almost unhappy
but the bigger the laugh the bigger the belly
and I bellow out and the whole bed it shakes
and you smile at my laugh as it rocks you awake."
20. Long Long Long - The Beatles
One of the best John songs on the White Album.---update it's George song, I always thought it was John.
21. Point Of Disgust - Low
Don't know if this is an official video or not, but it's really
is outstanding.

22. The Other Side Of Mt. Heart Attack - Liars

Thats it.
Total Time: 1:18:30

Its abit early for for Merry Christmas, but Merry Christmas
to you, consider it a gift from me to you. Applause and good
fortune to you and yours.

Cheers,
That video link on your blog profile of secret machine is very very very Béla Tarr esque. Werckmeister Harmonies in particular.
