weird monday

Posted in free music with tags , , on September 28, 2009 by Kayla

in honor of the FMA’s new embedd-able player, some new music from Tonstartssbandht (that is a pain to type out).

perfect if you’re in the mood for some weird ambient goodness. you should remember them from the amazing “Black Country.” I think it was on one of the summer mixes I had up.

let’s hope this thing works!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

thunderbird

the Golden Filter is back to politely remind us that disco isn’t dead with “Thunderbird,” which you can download at Gorilla vs. Bear and then totally jam out to for the rest of the day. thank me later. sounds a lot like their last song, but I’m not really complaining.

don’t forget to tune in tomorrow night at 8 at cofcradio.com!

super haze

Posted in free music with tags , , on September 15, 2009 by Kayla

who’d have thought we’d see the day that a Columbia artist remixing another Columbia artist would make it on Pitchfork? Toro y Moi has put together a nice little remix of Washed Out’s “Feel it All Around” that you can download over at Pitchfork. makes me feel like laying in the sun by a lake and almost makes me miss Columbia.

I’m thinking a hazy little podcast might come together soon so keep your eyes and ears open.

and don’t forget to tune in tonight at 8 pm!

little love mix

Posted in mixtapes with tags , , , , , , on September 6, 2009 by Kayla

here’s a little mini-podcast. I know it’s fall and not February, but I think fall is a season of love. after all, everyone goes back to school and picks up little schoolgirl/boy crushes on classmates or professors anyway.

so this mix runs the range of love-related emotions from defiance to wistful pining. this also started as a retro mix so it’s a little Motown-y.

and you will notice that “Summer Grof” has made a second appearance but the vacation mini-mix has vanished off zshare and it’s the end of summer and I think it’s relevant. so there. tracklist after the jump.

download the little love mix here.

the last rose of summer

Posted in free music with tags , , on September 2, 2009 by Kayla

a drowsily haunting tune for your Wednesday night: “The Last Rose of Summer” by Moore and Davis. it’s from 1922 and it features a singing saw. how cool is that?

found in this excellent blog entry on the FMA today.

thanks to everyone who tuned in last night! and if you missed it, be sure to listen next week. hopefully I won’t be so nervous next time.
