    I'm going to the Rising Sun Rock music festival here in August, it's only Japanese musicians so I made a couple of 8track mixes to help out the friends I'm going with. It's a pretty varied selection if you want a sampler of contemporary Japanese music: jazz to jazz-punk to electro-pop to retro-punk to electro-punk to downbeat-electro and all that noise in between.

    Self pityingly or tearfuly sentimental, often through drunkeness.
    Songs of longing, desire, and self distruction

    I deleted my last mix, because it was rushed and not very good. I'll make another one tonight, containing a couple of the same tracks.

    But in the meantime, I made you guys a hip-hop mix!

    Jeff Zero's Whitechapel Hip-Hop Mix

    (edit: Oh hey, a couple of THESE were in my last mix, too)

    Saul Williams- Black History Month
    Art-ish hip-hop with production by Trent Reznor

    P.O.S.- I Play The Matador (Redo version)
    Aggressive punk rock-influenced (P.O.S. is a member of Building Better Bombs) alt-rap. I wish more of his tracks had this kind of kick to them. It fits his style and his roots quite well.

    Grand Buffet- Dark Autumn
    Using 'hip-hop' loosely here, but it's what they go by. Not sure if they're taking themselves seriously or not, but it works either way.

    Lady Sovereign- Fiddle With The Volume
    Well, it was either her or mc chris, and I'm not sure how I feel about him these days.

    Doomtree- Kid Gloves
    P.O.S. makes another appearance here. Alternative rap collective from Minneapolis. Pretty sure this album is right behind Method Man and Redman's 'Blackout!' on my list of favorite hip-hop/rap albums.

    The Coup- My Favorite Mutiny
    Featuring Black Thought and Talib Kweli. I wish The Coup were a better group, because the handful of good songs they have are really, really goddamned good. ....I feel that way about too many bands I listen to.

    Busdriver- Imaginary Places
    C'mon, how can you not like this?

    RJD2- Ghostwriter
    Hip-hop instrumentals. This dude makes catchy stuff.

    @ JeffZero, Kimieye

    Ah my listening for this afternoon.... Good work!
    • CommentTimeJun 28th 2009
    Damn fine list, Jeffzero. Except for the Lady Sovereign, she makes me want to plunge icepicks into my ears. But RJD2 and Saul Williams are class acts.
    • CommentTimeJun 29th 2009
    Hip-hop mix is awesome... but got even more so when I realized Talib Kweli is on that Coup song.
    In keeping w/ the theme- word, son.

    the summer mix oh-nine.
    it's not particularly summery, but it is upbeat. so that's something.

    In And Out (Of The Woods).

    Vaguely woodsy music.
    It felt right at 3:20 this morning.
    I like it anyway.
