october 2008 mix

The following is via the excellent site, Hearsay

“OK, so I alluded to it, but Sunset and Grouper, two freed picks are heading up this mix, along with his other favorite, N.Lannon, side project of Nyles Lannon of Film School fame. I’m just going crazy for this War On Drugs album, and ‘Pushing Corn,’ the one b-side they left off the album is just as good as anything they included. If you haven’t picked yet picked up Wagonwheel Blues, I don’t know what I can do for you. The whole album is full of quotables – and I like what I read from ‘Pushing Corn,’ speaking on getting by within a small town, but with ‘underground’ values. ‘Show me this town from the underground.’ The Helio Sequence album has also really grown on me, and I don’t know how I originally missed ‘Hallelujah’ as a standout. Awesome production. Shannon Wright’s album is another one that crept up on me. ‘St. Pete’ starts innocent enough, before kicking you in the ass like its 1997 again. And then there is this Dodos track. Is it just me? The original version on Beware Of The Maniacs was kind of shitty, no? But then this more subtle version that they recorded for Daytrotter last year is just fantastic. It pops into my head at the strangest of times, but usually in the middle of the day when I’m wishing that I had a portable music player that was synched into my subconscious.”
