Winning Sperm Party weren’t the only ones in the festive spirit though.

On Christmas Eve, Glasgow pop stalwarts, Mitchell Museum released their brand new EP “The Closer We Got The Harder We Fell”.


MP3: Mitchell Museum – Dirtknife

For full tracklisting and info check out the guys’ bandcamp. All they ask for is your email address in exchange for their music. Fair trade. Go on.

The Klaxons were also feeling charitable this Christmas. Remember all the recordings they done with James Ford two years back? Which they then decided to scrap and start work all over again on what was to be second album “Surfing The Void”. Yeah? Well they decided Christmas was the perfect time to reveal all from the James Ford sessions. How lovely.


Head on over to their website for their reasons and download instructions.

The tracklisting is…

1. The Pale Blue Dot
2. Silver Forest
3. Ivy Leaves
4. Wildeflowers
5. Marble Fields

They only slight downside is that the files are in wav form and therefore the tracks are huge in size but we mustn’t complain when it’s free! I took the liberty of converting “Pale Blue Dot” to MP3 form for any like minded WAV haters out there.

Hope everyone had a brilliant Christmas.

THE MONDAY LIST #22: Ten Out Of 10

So yesterday was the 1oth October 2010. Those numbers 10/10/10 will only happen once in your lifetime…..unless you live to be over a hundred and see the year 2110. A scary thought.

My original plan was to do the usual and browse through my music library to find 10 songs that are some how related to the subject. The subject this time being the number ten. Yes i realise that’s a lot of tens right there. A list of ten songs with ten either in the artists name or song title. However after a quick ten minutes of perusing i could only find a few so i gave up as such.

Instead i’ve decided to do a countdown in reverse order through the numbers ten to one. Songs with numbers in the title. I suppose the countdown idea will have to do. If anyone else knows songs involving “10” then let me know!

I’ve added the other few songs (the 1o’s) i had intended to use in the list as extra bonus tracks.

Ten Out of 10
——————–

1. The Big Pink – Count Backwards From Ten
2. The Twilight Singers feat Mark Lanegan – Number Nine
3. Mew – Eight Flew Over, One Was Destroyed
4. The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army
5. DJ Shadow – Six Days
6. The Dirty Secrets – Five Feet of Snow
7. Nedry – Four Layers Of Pink
8. Air Formation – Three Years Pass
9. Klaxons – Two Receivers
10. Martina Topley-Bird – Need One (Fabien’s Mix)

BONUS TRACKS

MP3: Idlewild – Tell Me Ten Words

MP3: Ten Million Lights – Kill Yr Idols

MP3: The Black Keys – Ten Cent Pistol

2009: A Robot Odyssey

2009: A Robot Odyssey is my second mixtape. Yet again, recorded all in the one go and yet again under 1 hour and 2o minutes in duration (fits on a cd no problem).  On the first mixtape (VCPE) i went for an almost kinda rock vibe, electronic as well but mostly rock. So on Robots i’ve decided to go not quite as guitar orientated and tried my best to stick to a dancier side, although there are a few more rockier types in amongst the mix and they do work quite well alongside the rest of the tracks.

Once more i’ve decided to add bits and loop, cut and sample again over most of the songs to make them “edits” as such i suppose and not really remixes, there are a few that i’ve properly remixed, the rest are just edits though.

Just as VCPE had outtakes from some films, Robots does too. There’s also a small introduction and end speech by Microsoft Anna so listen closely. The mix starts off slowly then builds up. About 3 or 4 songs in i decided to use some more “commercial/poppier” material (AVH, Daft Punk, Soulwax etc) but then go back to more beat driven music. I had to do a slight edit on the last track by Black Strobe. Just shortened it down a bit to allow the mix to be under 80 minutes long. You might notice the jump in that track too. I can only apologise for that.

I;m gonna put this mix up on Mediafire soon so it will be available for unlimited download but for the moment just left click once on the mp3 below and it’ll open in a different page then simply right click and save target as.
