Something Wicked This Way Comes

This is a special Halloween mixtape, feel free to download it if you want. I threw it together this afternoon in the midst of a hangover. Apologies for the quality of the track “Dragula”. The bitrate was really low and i only realised halfway through the mix. I would have left the track out if i’d known but i recorded the mix all in one go and made the mistake of not checking the quality of the tracks first. Like i said i was hungover and it was a last minute thing. I just had a quick browse through some of my music files and took the songs i thought to be most apt for a Halloween mix.

Alone With You In Kyoto

Ok, sticking with the Lost In Translation theme of the last post i just want to share a song i randomly came across online. It’s possibly one of the most beautiful songs i’ve heard in a long time. It’s a mash-up of such between two very contrasting bands. Being brought together are my favourite band,  the alternative legends Queens of the Stone Age and in a very daring and inspiring move the French electronic duo Air, who are pretty legendary in their own right too.

Right, you’re wondering where the Lost In Translation theme i’m talking about is yes? Well the Air track being used is “Alone In Kyoto” which was a centrepiece (musically) of that particular film, to me the title of the song and how it is used sums up the whole film. It’s an amazing, strangely calming piece of music in it’s own right but for some reason when it’s paired with an acappella of the blatant sex-infused lyrics of “Make It Wit Chu” by QOTSA it becomes even more amazing, even more calming. The songs perfectly match the whole way through the song and compliment each other beyond belief. As for the chorus, the moment it kicks in i get a little tingle in my spine. The way that the phrase “I Wanna Make It With You” kicks in and the piano of the Air track just sound so good together.

It’s a new and exciting twist on the genre of mash-ups which is probably (although not always) more commonly known for rap accapellas, glitchy beats and electro synths. Fortunately for us there are a few exceptions out there, DJ’s who will make alternative mash-ups,  guys who will take songs that really shouldn’t be put together and make magic happen and that’s exactly what this is…

Have a listen to both songs individually first off with the YouTube videos and imagine them together and then download the MP3 at the bottom of the post. You’ll be missing out if you don’t.

Air – Alone In Kyoto

Queens of the Stone Age – Make It Wit Chu

Music and Lyrics #1

Yet another new section..been meaning to start this section for weeks and since i’m bored and sad about missing out on going to An Audience With Kevin Smith i thought i might as well start it now…

Just video posts with lyrics underneath them.

1. THE VEILS – VICIOUS TRADITIONS

“I’d Pull My Weight If It Made Any Difference……..”

I’d pull my weight if it made any difference
He gave his life for the nine million others
But on his graves written “Here lies Joseph”
His countrys gun and innocent soldier

Well fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one

He grew a blood red vision for all their good “intentions”
He made an easy million from a foreign investment
He danced with the devils in beautiful buildings
Affirmative action for a useful reunion

He’d change his name if it made any difference
Now hes waiting in line for the lasting confession
And on his graves written “Here lies our son Joseph”
His countrys gun and innocent soldier

Well fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one

2. THE POLICE – EVERY LITTLE THING SHE DOES IS MAGIC

“Though I’ve Tried Before To Tell Her….”

Though Ive tried before to tell her
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart
Every time that I come near her
I just lose my nerve
As Ive done from the start

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
Its a big enough umbrella
But its always me that ends up getting wet

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
And ask her if shell marry me in some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone?

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

3. RADIOHEAD – FAKE PLASTIC TREES

“…and if i could be who you wanted..”

Her green plastic watering can
For her fake chinese rubber plant
In fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plants
Just to get rid of itself
And it wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out.

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns.
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins.
And it wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears him out.

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love.
But I cant help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run
And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out.

And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted,
All the time, all the time

4. RYAN ADAMS – LA CIENEGA JUST SMILED

“..i’m too scared to know how i feel about you now…”

“Ah the night…here it comes again”
It’s on with the jeans, the jacket and the shirt
How’d I end up feeling so bad
For such a little girl
And I hold you close in the back of my mind
Feels so good but damn it makes me hurt
And I’m too scared to know to how I feel about you now
La Cienega just smiles…”see ya around”
And I hold you close in the back of my mind
And raise my glass ’cause either way I’m dead
Neither of you really help me to sleep anymore
One breaks my body and the other breaks my soul
La Cienega just smiles as it waves goodbye
“Ah the night…here it comes again”
It’s off with the jeans, the jacket and the shirt
How’d I end up feeling so bad
For such a little girl
And I hold you close in the back of my mind
Feels so good but damn it makes me hurt
And I’m too scared to know how I feel about you now
How I feel about you now
La Cienega just smiles and says, “I’ll see you around”

5. QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE – GO WITH THE FLOW

“…i want something good to die for, to make it beautiful to live…”

She said “i’ll throw myself away, they’re just photo’s afterall”
I can’t make you hang around
I can’t wash you off my skin
Outside the frame, is what we’re leaving out
You won’t remember anyway
I can go with the flow
Don’t say it doesn’t matter anymore
I can go with the flow
Do you believe it in your head?
It’s so safe to play along
Little soldiers in a row
Falling in and out of love
Something sweet to throw away
I want something good to die for
To make it beautiful to live
I want a new mistake, to lose is more than hesitate
Do you believe it in your head?
I can go with the flow
Don’t say it doesn’t matter anymore
I can go with the flow
Do you believe it in your head?

THE MONDAY LIST #5: Is God Listening?

iGod

This weeks list is a little different from any previous weeks, its about the myth/man/woman/entity/spirit known as God. Now before i go any further, i’m not a practising Christian, i’m not emotionally attached to any certain religion but i’m not an Atheist either. Personally i don’t know what to believe about any higher beings, ghost or spirits etc. I’m open minded on all aspects of the whole subject. This list is just for fun, no offence is intended or anything. I suppose to a certain extent i do believe in “a God” but not in “the God”. Every religion is entitled to their own belief as is every person. Just thought i’d clear that up because i know what some of the Politically Correct brigade are like.

And without further ado here is the Top 10 God Bothering/Loving Tracks…..fortunately for all ears out there Creed are not included, dunno if you could guess by my tastes but i’m not exactly their biggest fan.

MP3’s
Gods Playlist
————————

1. Queens of the Stone Age – God Is in the Radio
2. Beach Boys – God Only Knows
3. MSTRKRFT – Fist Of God
4. Faithless – God is a DJ
5. Gutter Twins – God’s Children
6. Moby – God Moving Over The Face Of The Water
7. Alice In Chains – God Smack
8. Nine Inch Nails – God Given
9. Modeselektor – Godspeed
10. Joan Osborne – (What If God) Was One Of Us

As usual to download the tracks just click on them once to open the file then either “right click save target as” or simply left click once more for the option to save the file.

God.com?
Before i go…..

This just scares me…..like, really scares me…

For those who have never seen the video before the story behind it is as follows. A deeply religious Christian woman has taken part in the American version of Wife Swap. She’s returned to her family after spending a week (2 weeks maybe? who cares) or so with another family. Apparently this family aren’t quite as Christian as her, in fact according to her they’re from the “Dork Side”, i think she means Dark………so anyways she returns to her home and lets rip on her poor family with a very strange almost psychotic outburst over religion. Weirdo.

Axe A Dent and Emerge and See

Apologies for the late weekend mixtape but i’ve been a busy boy. As many of you will know, this Wednesday past happened to be the 9/9/09. I was going to make a special mixtape up on the Wednesday to commemorate this once in a lifetime date. Well, my lifetime anyway, unless i somehow live till September 2109. Anyways, i couldn’t get round to making the mix up on the Wednesday due to more important matters, ie. getting drunk and watching the Scotland vs Holland game round the local watering hole. So i thought to myself “i’ll make it on the Thursday”….but i was too hungover. Friday? Went and seen a friends band playing in Stereo (i’ll post some stuff soon). Saturday? Couldn’t. It’s a long story.
But!……… But! Today i finally got the time to make it. The theme of the mix takes on a 999/Accident & Emergency vibe, so bands and songs that were included had to have that kinda slant to their name. Things along the lines of Police, Ambulance, Criminals, Fire, Accidents etc. Hope you enjoy!

9999 Problems (and a mix ain’t one)

Woke up really early yesterday morning, couldn’t get back to sleep so decided to fuck about with a Jay Z instrumental track i had and use some of the random acapellas i had lying around to make an interesting piece of bootleg material. The resulting piece of bashed up glitchness that emerged pleasantly surprised me. This is just a rough demo version, like i said i put it together in the early hours of a sunday morning (probably whilst still under the influence of alcohol). It only took about an hour tops to make this version but i’m going to redo it and maybe add some more acapellas and maybe even some different beats.

MP3: Someones In The Wolf – 9999 Problems (rough version)

Someones In The Wolf 9999 Problems

Mash-up details:

Instrumentation: Jay Z

Acapellas: (in no specific order) Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Muse, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nine Inch Nails, The Killers, Bon Jovi (yes,….. Bon Jovi)

Feel free to download the track from here or if you just wanna listen to it and listen to a few other tracks i’ve done head over to http://www.myspace.com/someonesinthewolf

Comfortable Is Creepy: A Preview Inside the Studio With Them Crooked Vultures

Comfortable Is Creepy

Comfortable Is Creepy

Them Crooked Vultures have released yet another teaser for the upcoming album. They’ve chosen to let our desperate ears listen to a little bit more of “Nobody Loves Me And Neither Do I”. But this time instead of a 14 second clip of the music accompanied by three music minded vultures (crooked ones obviously) we get a peak inside the studio and 33 seconds of the song. It seems like we are being fed the song little by little, piece by piece……i reckon we’ll have got to the chorus by Christmas.

But it sounds like the wait will be worth it. Here’s hoping.

It’s all good and well that the Ginger Elvis is making new music in Them Crooked Vultures but lets hope he’s not forgot about QOTSA, we’re due something new off the Queens any month now.

Just as a little reminder for those of you who have forgotten just how good the noise is when messrs Homme and Grohl put their skulls together, here’s a classic piece of Josh Hommes riffery nicely bolted onto Dave Grohls pounding beats.
