XQSS, Vol. 4: 10/14/2010 @ 08:27-09:47 CST

XQSS is a new, weekly LAB series inspired by the simultaneous predictability and complete randomness associated with Asian mega-city life. XQSS can be pronounced ‘excuses’, as it is more or less just a way to post more jamz. The actual, however, is a colloquial acronym for XingQiSi Shuffle, or Thursday Shuffle. The idea is every Thursday I post the last 80 minutes of music that has come up on shuffle; no skipping, no edits, all embarrassment. Mixed by providence, posted by a clocks pip. Get down, karman.


4th Thursday of XQSS. Here’s my extended, haphazard soundtrack to making oatmeal and watching traffic:

3. Candy Hearts – Without Caffeine
4. Agnes High Quality – Final Answer?
5. After School Knife Fight – My Shattered Glass Heart
6. Celeste – D’abysse En Abysse
7. Off Minor – Problematic Courtship (Live)
8. The Little Rock – Story
9. Jenny Hoyston – Kill Those Thoughts About
10. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Don’t Forget Me
11. Hopesfall – Champion Beyond Blessing

The Crane Wife 1 & 2 by the Decemberists was number 23, but it ran too long and didn’t make the mark.
