Yup. A mix of my most played songs (from this decade, and excluding some I’ve already posted), in order. You can judge me accordingly.
“Lucifer’s Memory” shocked the fuck out of me when I heard them play it, but ooh it works so well. Avatar was my favorite album of ’06, for those keeping tabs. A Taste Of Murder is another one of those oddball bands that I shouldn’t like, but if I’m being completely honest I’d have to say that this track takes the cake. The Eastern Youth track is from the split with Cursive, and I still have yet to see them live. Listen to the bridge in “E. Nick” and tell me that isn’t the simpliest, yet most well placed/written “solo” ever. The Pedro song is from the ’04 Tour EP, and the live version is much better than the studio. I almost got the Akimbo lyrics, “Gonna take your white stripes, gonna paint them black” tattooed on me once. Same with “I hope we can change the same” by Mr. Bazan. Almost. The little metal lick in “60 Revolutions” rocks my socks off, same with the drum roll in “Kids Get Cut”. I’m a simple man, really. Gustavo Santaolalla is the man behind the music in such films as Babel and The Motorcycle Diaries. This track is from the latter and if you’ve seen the movie you know how well it fits the part. The keyboard in “The Bomba” reminds me of Schroeder from Charlie Brown. MewithoutYou had Jeremy Enigk spot on their song and that is definately the highlight of the album, and possibly their career.
This mix doesn’t flow all that well because I didn’t rearrange it, but the songs are fantastic. I love music and so do you.
The title is an ode to PMFS, kind of.
I also accidentally put the album as LAB008 in the download, so feel free to change it to 7, so things make sense.
A Wilhelm Scream’s new album came out today, and I’m giddy as a schoolgirl for it. Nitro is really looking up with AWS and No Trigger. Yeah you better believe I’m rockin’ Ignition right now.
