you prob. don’t remember, but as promised here’s the third of three mixes that i’ve been wrestling with for the past few months. (for those of you just joining us, the first one was the guilty pleasures mix, and the second was a (mostly) upbeat mix.) this one i call my “kind of dark, kind of indie-ish mix”, although it’s not really that indie, but that was the feel i was going for. the three started off being one random melange of stuff i liked at the time and wanted to put on a mix, but it was way too schizo. hence the three thematic mixes. this one’s the most predictable of the three (i can just hear people groaning already: what? another pinback track? i purposely left off the cure and my chick triumvirate of tori/bjork/ani). but i figure i can slip into banality for this mix b/c my next mix (which is almost finished) is almost entirely new people; and i did manage to fit a few surprises into this one, like the xiu xiu track and the kate bush cover (which is fantastic by the way). i’m not crazy about some of the tracks (like radiohead, whose music seems to wane by the hour for me, and arab strap and phillip glass, although both of those have really grown on me), but they seemed to fit. and i was psyched to fit in three instrumentals (the first and last track and the glass track in the middle). i really really wanted to include a much better version of “microtonic wave” from when pinback was in boston, but the quality was just too poor. one last thing: i’ve gotta give a shout out to luke myers for what is undoubtedly one of the best covers i’ve heard recently, tori or no, and on a harpsichord no less. well, there it is.
