This is the first time I've made a mix tape without having a particular theme in mind. This means I had about 5253765742 songs that I wanted to include, but I eventually whittled it down to this. Enjoy! 1. Menomena - Wet and Rusting This band are amazing. Their piano lines and manic drums are face melting. Friend and Foe was one of my favourite albums of last year. 2. Hymie's Basement - 21st Century Pop Song I'm a massive fan of Yoni Wolf's stuff, and this is right up there with the best stuff he's done. If you like this make sure you check out Why?, too. 3. Mechanical Owl - Gravel Grain One of the many bands I've found through the joys of Myspace. He lives in North Wales, about 5 minutes away from me. It's rare to find musicians from this neck of the woods, especially ones that are this good. 4. Boards of Canada - Dayvan Cowboy I'm probably one of the few people who thinks The Campfire Headphase is BoC's best album. This piece of music is just perfect, to my ears anyway. I love the attention to detail. This is also one of my favourite ever songs to drive to. 5. Aphex Twin - Flim This is one of those songs that takes you to another place. It's so dreamy... 6. Kevin Drew - Safety Bricks I wanted to include this one just because of the violin that comes in at two minutesish. It's so simple but it fits the song perfectly 7. Horse Feathers - Finch on Saturday One of my favourite recent(ish) discoveries. I hear they have a new album out, too. 8. Micah P. Hinson - I Keep Havin' These Dreams This is off the last album I bought. The string section in this song is quality. Great album. 9. Okkervil River - Savannah Smiles This is the acoustic demo version that I found online somewhere. Will Sheff certainly knows how to write a tune. 10. Sweet Baboo - Recaping all my other songs We had the pleasure of playing with this guy in London earlier this year. He played almost his entire set standing on one leg. It was ace. 11. Jonquil - Lions Another band we've played with this year. This is a massive tune. 12. Adem - One in a Million One of my all time favourites. Homesongs is a phenomenal album. 13. Low - Laser Beam A nice gentle closer. Beautiful. Download it here! Visit Tim and Sam's Myspace
