Response to the sleep mini–mix: Mat's Sleeping Mix

Follow-up to Mini–mix : Sleep from á la discothèque

Sleepy Commuter

Without wanting to steal some of the thunder from Jim’s excellent Sleep Mini-Mix, it inspired me to create my own, longer version. Whereas Jim made an excellent job of mixing the tracks together seamlessly, I’m rubbish at that kind of thing so I concentrated more on the ordering and making sure that things flowed smoothly from track to track, much like an album ordering… so this is more of a mixtape than a mix :) But enjoy, nevertheless.

Note: If you use the in-browser player, ignore the progress bar – tracks will play one after the other

Cover me!

Cover versions are fun little things, because they allow songs to be reinterpretted in different ways and allow the listener to get into the music more. Sometimes they can be bad, particularly when it's one of your favourite songs that has been murdered by a pop princess wanting to reach out to a larger audience who don't want to listen, but occasionally you can find some real gems. Here are a couple that I've found over the past few days, for your enjoyment:

Sonata Arctica – The Wind Beneath My Wings (Bette Midler) MP3 Expired
Four Tet – Iron Man (Black Sabbath) MP3 Expired
Beck – Hot In Here (Nelly) MP3 Expired
Beck – Diamond Dogs (David Bowie) MP3 Expired
Ben Gibbard – Thriller (Michael Jackson) MP3 Expired
Xiu Xiu – Fast Car (Tracy Chapman) MP3 Expired
Eels – I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man (Prince) MP3 Expired
Sophie Koh – Creep (Radiohead) MP3 Expired
Tim Young – The Start of Something (Voxtrot) MP3 Expired

Also, Voxtrot are playing some UK dates in August. Someone buy me tickets, yay!

Meet the Contributors: Chris Rossdale

Formulaic. Obvious. The quintessential blog–way to introduce oneself… am I

Name: Chris Rossdale
Number one in UK when I was born: Madonna – Something Generic
First album bought: Something awful….Aqua I think. Poor. Very poor.
First gig attended: Greenday/No Doubt. Backstage. Get In.
Favourite album: Changes often, usually something by Radiohead or the Pixies. It's Jeff Buckley's Grace right now though.
Favourite song: Radiohead – Paranoid Android, or Pixies – Where Is My Mind, or Joy Division – She's Lost Control. Or something else tomorrow….
Favourite gig: Last month's Long Blondes gig comes pretty damn high….The White Stripes at the Apollo were amazing last November too.
Favourite band: Radiohead or the Pixies.
Favourite genre: New Wave/Post Punk
The band you like but are embarassed about/feel is a little out of place in your collection: The Presidents of the United States of America represent everything I hate about modern 'punk' music. And they're AWESOME.
Number of CDs bought since 1st January 2006: 20? Ish? I've procured a good few more than that though.
What musical event would you most like to see happen: The resurrection of Jeff Curtis (half Jeff Buckley, half Ian Curtis). Together with himself, he would lead the revolution in modern music and restore the glory days. Take us back to a time bands like Razorlight aren't worrying because 'they're too close to a deadline'. A deadline in creating music!? Makes me sick…..
Musical hero: Martin Hannett (Factory Records producer, worked with Joy Division, Durutti Column, John Cooper Clarke, A Certain Ratio and many others)
Music's biggest enemy/ies in my opinion are: The Arctic Monkeys. Well, not all of them, or even all of him: just his voice. His irritating scratchy would–rather–listen–to–Dick–Van–Dyke–do–a–regional–accent–voice just makes me want to throw away all my music and cry in a dark secluded corner. It is music's arch enemy, and it must be destroyed.

Any questions? Good.
