perhaps you have noticed a common thread that pulls together most of the mixes so far… there is usually always a remix in there somewhere. i simply love them, and experience a serious thrill every time i discover one of my favourite artists has been remixed –  especially when it’s done in a creative way.

Formative Years

i have always been a music lover. i would often sit in the living room on my parents’ brown corduroy couches (yeah) listening to their old records and cds. when my older brothers weren’t around i’d sneak into their bedrooms and sample hits from the eighties (a-ha is still a favourite.) i’ve had the idea […]

get into it

15 get into it

the mid-month music mix is coming to you courtesy of a reader request, I get up quite early and start at the office well before anybody else arrives. Nothing better than having coffee and some loud music then, to start the day. So, my request, could you do a morning playlist? Something that would be like a rare and […]

february music mix is here! as much as i kind of despise valentines day/month i have to admit i was thinking about it when putting this mix together. it’s not 100% love songs, in fact there are a number of songs on here that are distinctly un-love songs. you know, valentines is a bunch of […]

i was pretty damn thrilled when i received a mail from steph who hosts a radio show at american university in washington dc. she kindly asked me to contribute a playlist to their programme (called “muzak to make your booty clap” – hehe) and my first thought was, “YES! an actual real life legitimate reason to […]

10 golden years

it’s december. wow. 2010 went by so quickly, yet i can barely remember january. this was my first post of 2010 where i declared that i would ‘go out and see more stuff’. i’m not sure i lived up to my resolution. i’d like to be hopeful in thinking that 2011 is going to be different. […]

Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’

i wasn’t really thinking of a theme at all when putting the mid-november mix together, just smashing together a bunch of songs i’ve been playing a lot lately. then i realised there may be a hidden theme as many of them are actually love songs. new love, old love, lost love… maybe even a bit of hate love. so there you have it.

lovin, touchin, squeezin. download it here. tracklist:

  1. best coast – the end
  2. the black keys – the only one
  3. sea wolf – the violet hour
  4. girls – heartbreaker
  5. the bees – i really need love
  6. tennis – take me somewhere
  7. seapony – dreaming
  8. lykke li – get some
  9. beach house – 10 mile stereo
  10. florence and the machine – cosmic love
  11. band of horses – no ones gonna love you
  12. devotchka – you love me
  13. junior boys – hazel
  14. journey – lovin’, touchin’, squeezin’

i would also like the clarify that the cover art is a tribute to movember. though it really should be beardvember, in my opinion. i suppose i wouldn’t mind lovin, touchin, and squeezin that fine ginger bearded fellow though.
