jwz mixtape 121

Please enjoy jwz mixtape 121.

Lots of good stuff in this one. Let me draw your attention to that Blood Red Shoes video, which is just so great: the album is fantastic, too. And new Dirty Epics! Hooray! The Voltaire Twins video keeps getting taken down from Youtube because tittays, so who knows how long that will last.

That Grimes video is just so full of burner goth dumb that I had to throw Candy Flip in there as a palate cleanser, even though it doesn't really flow well.

I think Karin Park looks a lot like Cromartie from Sarah Connor Chronicles, so I keep expecting her to freak out and kill a bunch of FBI agents.

    Great as always, thanks for sharing these. Having been following you mixtapes forever, I only now just realized that if I start the first video on my iphone and airplay it to the TV/stereo, it does actually follow the playlist and play 'em all. Yay, instant music video channel!

    Am I the only one for whom it just will not play? You'd think that by now running a browser provided by Google to site provided by Google with content encoded by Google would actually just frigging work.

      The embedded playlist plays for me in Google Chrome on linux without a problem.

        I believe JWZ has changed the HTML - IIRC before there was a 'popout' link. Before using either in page or popout would give me the player with a black screen and the bottom red bar would indicate a few seconds of buffering, then nothing. It is working now.

    always a pleasure to indulge in pop-whoredom.

    Awesome selection this week; I really appreciate the effort you put into these.

    Karin Park sounds a lot like fellow Scandinavians Lykki Li and Karin Dreijer Andersson (a.k.a. Fever Ray, 1/2 The Knife) and has the same producer as the latter, so I think I'm inherently biased to like her.

    Allow me to suggest The Neighbourhood, "Female Trouble":

      Another to consider just for weirdness value. H&M made an ad with Lana Del Rey covering "Blue Velvet" is every sense:
