    Since Muxtape borked itself the other day and lost a bunch of data, and since it still doesn't sport search or tagging, I thought I'd take the excuse to relaunch the muxtape trade thread.

    Have you created a new Muxtape? Link it up, we want to hear it.

    well I've just discovered muxtape and finally uploaded some songs. There is no theme or reason for these songs, just some random ones I like.

    however some may notice the early 90's Chapel Hill NC influence on it since I grew up near there,

    and somehow LBA was already taken, so I went with a different name,

    my muxtape

    I have absolutely no idea if I'd shared this one before.

    Here's a slightly abbreviated version of my spring playlist for this year. "Atlas" by Battles should be the third song, but muxtape doesn't like my file. Feel free to pop that in there if you own it. Overall it's an upbeat happy mix of songs I really like and a few guilty pleasures.

    I just made one of Americana: jazz, swing, blues, funk, etc.

    It includes the Ella Fitzgerald singing Mack the Knife when she forgets the words halfway through and starts scatting/improvising instead, the song that convinced me that Lou Rawls has the Sexiest voice ever, a couple songs by The Whitefield Brothers (who are actually German, and the side project of The Poets of Rhythm), as well as two local favorites: Seth Walker and the White Ghost Shivers. WGS is what happens when a bunch of punk musicians turn to hot jazz/hookum/dirty blues. Incidentally, they're touring Europe right now, and if you get the chance to hear them, I HIGHLY recommend it - they put on a raucous show and play some damn good music.

    I don't know how likely it is that people here like jazz, swing, etc., but if you like what you hear, let me know. I love this stuff.

    By the way, LBA, the song Higher and Higher is great, but it always reminds me of Ghostbusters 2 and the Statue of Liberty walking through New York.

    New to muxtape. Liking it, though it keeps losing my song order. Song order is fucking important, yo.

    Bipolar is the new apocalyptic fervor:

    I resisted to do what I used to inflict on my friends, which were cds upon cds of odd cover versions. Only one, here. 'cos I loves yous.

    I'm in a bit of an odd mood. Thus, I give you: i have taught you to love chickens.

    I started this one a while back, and I change it about once a week or so: Bitchy Lou Who

    And this one, which I'm currently playing with for someone special: Domino Harvey
    • CommentTimeMay 27th 2008
    Really like the Garbage/NiN mashup on Domino, Dex... reminds me of high school, but a lot better.
    • CommentTimeMay 27th 2008
    Thanks for stickying this, Mr. Ellis.

    I shall get a new list up... eventually. Probably later today.

    This one is basically a showcase of my favourite bands around at the moment. Most of it is punk with a twist but I think there's something in there for everyone.

    I present Drink Your School, Stay in Drugs, Don't Do Milk

    It's only 4 songs different from my original, but it makes it significantly different in feel, I think.

    I created a list to help me finish a piece of fiction I'm writing about a couples fight to survive against a ruler gone mad.
    This covers the couple from first meeting at a bar, to the decision of the survivor to continue the fight.

    So, I have been reading Freakangels since I found out about it an Warren Ellis has been very informative, emphasis on formative, in my political and social development. Add that to the fact that I have a passionate love of music which drove to not only a degree in ethnomusicology, from City University in London (which is a school across the street from the Islington Bloomsbury Library, housing my first Warren Ellis writings--which I will keep to myself because I'm like that), but also a love of Muxtape.

    Now that those two very disparate and ever so connected realms have touched here, I cannot but post.

    So, songs that make me smile, make me laugh, and end the night. Hence the name.

    I haven't recreated my other Muxtapes yet, so instead I created yet another themed one. Guess who this one is of!
