December 2019 — Decade(nds)

Published / by kozj_6ta8tp / Leave a Comment

After much time spent on the “best” of 2019, here is the last of 2019. I drew on end of year lists that looked at music with a different perspective than my own, like The Quietus and  FACT.

This mix is meant to be listened to while mixing cocktails before the first dawn of a new decade. If you’re a decade pedant, that means you can go ahead and cue this up for January 1st, 2021, but who are we kidding, you’ll be asleep.

1) “Requiem for CS70 and Strings” — Floating Points — Crush
2) “Confessions” — Sudan Archives — Athena
3) “13th Century Metal” — Brittany Howard — Jaime

9) “A Mí Me Juzgan Por Ser Mujer” — Pelada — Movimiento Para Cambio

11) “Cig Angel” — Galcher Lustwerk — Information
12) “Walking Alone (SBTRKT cover) (feat. J Rick & Jessie Ware)” — Octavian — Endorphins
13) “What U Wanna Do?” — Erika de Casier — Essentials
14) “I Want You Around” — Snow Aalegra — – Ugh, those feels again

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
18) “Night and Day” — Everything But The Girl – Night and Day
