Mix: October Language

I made this mix to make it through the graveyard shift. There's a lot of crooning going on in there, you know, men singing. Something heartfelt and overly emotional to listen to when I'm working, just to romanticise doing manual, monotonous labour and feeling miserable by the conveyor belt in the middle of the night. Enjoy ; ) Tracklist:

00:00 STARS - Your Ex-Lover Is Dead (Final Fantasy remix)

04:32 BEIRUT - Nantes
08:19 BEACH BOYS - Don't Worry Baby (stereo version)
11:02 JENS LEKMAN - I'm Leaving You Because I Don't Love You
14:45 LONEY, DEAR - Le Fever (live)
18:18 JOSÉ GONZÁLES - Killing For Love

Mix: Not All Who Wander Are Lost

I originally wanted this mix to consist of synthesizers and female vocals, with a kind of wind-swept, monochrome feel. The basis for this was the Kate Bush cover (by the ever competent Chromatics) and the song "Over and Over" by British 80's group Disco Inferno, held together by the voice of Liz Harris (Grouper). The result comes close enough. Best listened to late at night. Tracklist:

00:00 ROLAN VEGA - Painted by Children

BAT FOR LASHES - Horse and I
GROUPER - Hold A Desert, Feel Its Hand (edit)
CHROMATICS - Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush cover)
DISCO INFERNO - Over and Over
16:24 LAVENDER DIAMOND - I'll Never Lie Again

DEVENDRA BANHART - My Dearest Friend
