a droning noise jam for your Sunday morning hangover, courtesy of Ashtray Navigations and the FMA. windy and slightly eerie, would make the perfect score to an adaptation of one of Lovecraft’s short stories.

i’m in love with a ripper

perfect for walking to class on these chilly fall mornings. takes  a second to kick in but then sounds really nice through headphones when you’re half awake and staring down two midterms.

I know I am way behind, as usual, but I’ve finally scraped together a tiny haze mix for the start of fall. and man, it got chilly way too fast.

this one’s small (4 songs), mainly because some of the tracks I wanted to include didn’t sound right when I mixed them together in Audacity. one of these days I’ll actually learn how to properly use it…

download here. it’s great for those rainy days we’ve been having lately when you have three tests next week but you just can’t concentrate and leaving your bed is way too hard. tracklist and comments after the jump.

more about “colbert + darnielle = ❤“, posted with vodpod

so the Mountain Goats were on Colbert last week. my internet connection at school is too slow for me to post it, but I’m home for the weekend so here it is!

John Darnielle and Colbert are too cute together. my favorite line: “Who is God to mess with the free market?” oh Colbert, you get me every time. (did I mention one of my majors is Econ?)

also featured: why the band is named the mountain goats, John Darnielle getting called arty, and John Darnielle’s crazy performing face.

sorry I haven’t been posting very much lately, school and work and other things have been ruling my life so I haven’t had much time to find new music. this week is going to be pandemonium as well so don’t expect to hear much.

BUT I have some songs picked out for a new podcast and I’m installing more RAM this week on my laptop so the podcast process should move a lot faster. and I’ll be home this weekend (fall break already!) with a much better internet connection and down time to actually do some music researching.

thanks for checking in and be sure to listen to my show on Tuesday nights on!
