UPSETLISTS #3

UPSETLISTS #3

Upsetlists are EP-length transmissions, upsetting set-lists, malfunctioning time machines, flashes of divine recombination. A coupla-song podcast. This one hunts for some twang and torn-apart parts. How are y’all? Rilo Kiley – “Bury, Bury, Bury Another” – Rkives (2013) The National – “Pay for Me” – The National (2001) Superchunk – “Phone Sex” – Here’s to Shutting Up (2001) Liza Kate – “Oh Sally!” […]

Merry Christmas From 9 Bullets To You

Merry Christmas From 9 Bullets To You

Well here’s the Christmas mixtape for 2014. I didn’t go for an over-arching theme this year, well except Christmas, but you know what I mean. There are some traditional tracks, some tracks I think should get more attention, and some you’ve probably never heard. While not entirely upbeat, it’s not music by which to hang […]

Merry Christmas (Circa 2009)

Merry Christmas (Circa 2009)

Apparently I’ve only done two of these, this one from 2009, and it has a bit of MPD in spots. These are fun to make, I’m not sure why I haven’t made others. Of course now I’ve screwed myself because I can’t use any of the tracks off of these two to make one for […]

Ho Ho Humbug (Circa 2011)

Ho Ho Humbug (Circa 2011)

This is my Christmas compilation from 2011, I’m not sure I was in a great place mentally when I made this. It’s a downer for sure but it’s all holiday music! I hope you enjoy it. I’ll be posting another old one and then, soon, a brand new one for your listening pleasure. There are […]

UPSETLISTS #2

While we’re recharging our batteries and uprooting our lives over here, I thought I’d start a series of posts to pass the time and have some fun. Upsetlists are EP-length transmissions, upsetting set-lists, malfunctioning time machines, flashes of divine recombination. A coupla-song podcast. This one is scuzzy and sweet like moldy honey: 1) Crop Circle Hoax – “Fail” – […]

Upsetlists are going to be EP-length transmissions, upsetting set-lists, malfunctioning time machines, flashes of divine recombination. A coupla-song podcast. Here’s the first, it comes from the long-lost Ninebullets Podcast #36: […]

THE WOLF RETURNS – PLAYLIST

THE WOLF RETURNS – PLAYLIST

  Well, I’m back. Not BACK, exactly: I’m here. After an incredibly long trip with one very angry cat in the passenger seat, my place of residence is now New Orleans, Louisiana. I took the scenic route for a few different reasons, including but not limited to SQUALLFEST and the chance to finally see Todd Farrell […]

[MIX TAPE] Meet Mr. Branan

[MIX TAPE] Meet Mr. Branan

I thought this one might be sort of timely since Mr. Branan has a new record out and is touring quite a bit. This doesn’t have any of his newer stuff but rather an introduction to his older work. When I originally put this together it covered everything he had out at the time. I […]
