mixtape 088

Please enjoy jwz mixtape 088.

This mixtape consists of some of the bands that I enjoyed most at SXSW 2010, roughly in the order that I saw them. So it is rather long, and the flow is not particularly smooth... but hey, that's what it was like being there. Embrace chaos.

    Did you hear about how unfortunate the name You Say Party, We Say Die turned out to be?

    It would be awesome to get a link to the playlist page so I can watch these on my own terms rather than YouTube's. Last time I figured out how to get to that page from the embed, but this time I can't seem to find it...can someone please provide a link?

    I like Intimate Stranger, "Under", although both the style and vocals are very Amanda Palmer.

    What does Eclectic Method do live? That track was brilliant, more Kleptones than Girl Talk. Girl Talk has a fetish for only using shitty rap, which gets irritating after a while.

    I won't bore you with the rest of my opinions in detail, so in short: Loved Tone, "My Mind Exploded", but I'm blanking on who she reminds me of. I dig Electric Valentine, though that clip audio is awful. Still love Metric. Trying not to make comments about "accessibility" of music lest I come off as a jerk. Viva City, "Behold" -- Drums 'n' Basses ... 'n' vocals? Hmm. Ten Bears, "Braces" shows lots of promise.

    Have you heard Caribou's latest, "Swim", yet? If you like Boards of Canada, you might like it.

    Also, YouTube appears to have a zero-indexing problem. There are 33 songs in this playlist. If you click on the first song ("Under"), the "next in playlist box" says that "Rock & Remixx" is "1 of 33". When you get to "Pony" (the last track) it then shows "Dark Days" again as "33 of 33", and if you click on it you jump back to playist entry 14. Autoplay gets stuck in an infinite loop of tracks 14 to 33. (No, I don't expect you to do anything other than laugh.)
