September 2019 vibe(zzz) cover

It’s Spring, though that’s not always obvious. Here is a mix that should work if you’re alone on a beach after Labor Day, or on a roof in the afternoon. Some inspiration from the NTS shows I listen to most months (especially Naomi Zeichner’s show, that’s the source for “Swaggu” below).

2) “holy terrain (feat. Future)” — FKA twigs — holy terrain

July 2019 — “SumWinter”

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
