I was reformatting my hard drive and trying to decide what to back up and what not to. I ultimately decided I didn’t need a ton of Witch House music I stole off bandcamp, but thought I should preserve its legacy somehow. So here’s this lovely compendium of a bygone genre.

Pretty upbeat mix of mostly 2000s indie rock with a couple throwbacks and the ocasional black sheep. All meant to help the miles tick by a little faster. Apologies for including a song that, in light of today’s news, may or may not be about beating your girlfriend.

I haven’t managed to get Ira’s Christmas tape to him yet, so I’m going to start the posting of these with his. Ira’s tape is a mostly instrumental journey through 21st century composition techniques. The music here ranges from traditional instrumentation and arrangements, to music created by computer generated algorithms, as well as some tracks where the music itself is made by the human voice.  Enjoyryoji ikeda - data simplexsigur ros - di donico muhly - mothertongue ii: showerchristian fennesz-ryuichi sakamoto - harujulianna barwick - cloaka silver mt zion - so some lonesome corner so many flowers bloomakron/family - singinga silver mt zion - so some lonesome corner so many flowers bloombrian eno - emerald and stonegrouper - atonea winged victory for the sullen - we played some open chords and rejoiced  gavin bryars - coda: tom waits with high strings

As the winter months approach I find myself wanting to listen to different types of music. Gone are the energetic fits of electric guitars, and in their place I often find myself awash in floating strings, and droning synths. To that effect, here’s my first wintery mixtape. Composed of music that mostly fits into that theme, with a few surprises. And one really rough demo of a classic. I find this is best suited for days where the weather report is mostly cloudy with a high of 65.
From A Passing Shape // Mix 31 // 59:51
01. A Winged Victory for the Sullen / Steep Hills of Vicodin Tears 02. A Silver Mt. Zion / Sit In the Middle of Three Galloping Dogs 03. Former Ghosts / Trust 04. Friends / My Boo 05. Unknown Mortal Orchestra / How Can U Luv Me 06. The La’s / There She Goes (demo) 07. Run DMT / Montana Mountain Groan  08. Grouper / A Lie 09. Gem Club / Lands 10. Active Child / High Priestess 11. Kyla La Grange / Lambs 12. Zola Jesus / Vessel 13. Still Corners / Velveteen 14. St. Lucia / All Eyes On You 15. M83 / Splendor
