July 2019 — “SumWinter”

Published / by kozj_6ta8tp / Leave a Comment

July 2019 cover

This is my first mix made in Australia, and this reflects the fact that it is “winter” here — at worst 45(f)/7(c) with some rain — by offering something more in line for an Ithacan March. This was built around the inclusion of some demos (from Beyoncé, Prince, and Phil Collins) that I heard in different contexts and thought might work together. Also, as long as there’s some new(ish) Rosalía, that will always find a place here as well.

It’s also a bit longer (1:00:35) than the last few, so throw it on in the background and prepare to be occasionally surprised.

Tracklist:

1) “Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero” — Rosalía — Fucking Money Man
2) “Sorry (Original Demo) — Beyoncé — Lemonade
3) “Closer To You” — Clairo — Closer To You
4) “Camomile Tea” — Nina Cobham — Camomile Tea – Single
5) “He” — Jai Paul — Do You Love Her Now / He – Single
6) “Castaway (feat. Tyler, The Creator)” — Yuna — Rouge
7) “True Blue (feat. Angel Olsen)” — Mark Ronson — Late Night Feelings
8) “Sober” — Lorde — Melodrama
9) “FYM” — King Marie — The Prelude
10) “Honey” — Red Hearse — Red Hearse – Single
11) “You’re My Love” — Prince — Originals
12) “Right Side of My Neck” — Faye Webster — Atlanta Millionaires Club
13) “Hold You Now (feat. Danielle Haim)” — Vampire Weekend — Father of the Bride
14) “Camera” — Charly Bliss — Young Enough
15) “Red Bull & Hennessy” — Jenny Lewis — On The Line
16) “Doin’ Time” — Lana Del Rey — Doin’ Time – Single
17) ”I Missed Again (Demo)” — Phil Collins — Other Sides

March 2019 pt. 2 — “It’s My Life”

Published / by kozj_6ta8tp / Leave a Comment

Mark Hollis died last month. This mix began as an attempt to feature one of his biggest hits with Talk Talk (“It’s My Life”). While that song ultimately did not make it in, it informs the sounds I looked for in the others that did. The last one, “The Colour of Spring,” is from Hollis’s eponymous solo album released in 1998. The others fit under a strange and expansive umbrella which I will call: “things played in a weird club that exists nowhere.”

Tracklist:

1) “Pull Up” — ABRA — Princess – EP
2) “Stay Flo” — Solange — When I Get Home
3) “Send to Robyn Immediately” — Robyn — Robyn
4) “IZ-US” — Aphex Twin — Come to Daddy
5) “Everything in Its Right Place” — Radiohead — Kid A
6) “Desafío” — Arca — Arca
7) “DE AQUÍ NO SALES (Cap.4: Disputa)” — ROSALÍA — EL MAL QUERER
8) “Onanon” — Kelela — Take Me Apart
9) “Down 4 Whatever (feat. SZA)” — Kingdom — Tears in the Club
10) “Holding On” — Tirzah — Devotion
11) “Heat Rises” — Nilüfer Yanya — Miss Universe
12) “Track Three” — Scott Walker — Climate of the Hunter
13) “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” — Kate Bush — Hounds of Love
14) “when the party’s over” — Billie Eilish — WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?
15) “The Colour of Spring” — Mark Hollis — Mark Hollis

March 2019 pt. 1 — “can’t calm down”

Published / by kozj_6ta8tp / Leave a Comment

This month I’ll be posting between two and three mixes, all of which capture an aspect of “winter in Ithaca.”

Winter in Ithaca lasts from November until…¿? It depends, but the latter months of it (March, April…the first week of May) are definitely the most confusing and distressing. This March it has been both -5 degrees F and 64 degrees F.

The title of this mix, “can’t calm down,” is taken from a song by Hand Habits, Meg Duffy’s solo project, which just put out the album placeholder. Her guitar playing can be heard on plenty of the other songs on this mix, and the whole thing is part of an unofficial series of mixes with more guitars and fewer bleeps and bloops ( ¿”guitars > bleeps/bloops”?).

Photo credit: me, taken outside my apartment a week ago.

Tracklist:

1) “Homeward Bound” —Simon & Garfunkel — Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
2) “Thank You” — Bonnie Raitt — Bonnie Raitt
3) “Kingston” — Faye Webster — Atlanta Millionaires Club
4) “I Was a Window (feat. Dustin Payseur)” — SASAMI — SASAMI
5) “Nobody” — Mac DeMarco — Here Comes The Cowboy
6) “Seven Words” — Weyes Blood — Front Row Seat to Earth
7) “Souvenir” — boygenius — boygenius – EP
8) “Blood Bank” — Bon Iver — Blood Bank
9) “Unfucktheworld” — Angel Olsen — Burn Your Fire For No Witness
10) “Blue, Pt. II” — Waxahatchee — Cerulean Salt
11) “can’t calm down” — Hand Habits — placeholder
12) “Paralysed” — Nilüfer Yanya — Miss Universe
13) “Holding On” — The War On Drugs — A Deeper Understanding
14) “Two Slow Dancers” — Mitski — Be The Cowboy
