Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.27)

Some crackers on Volume 27, Nick Cave’s beautiful track off my favourite Bad Seeds album Henry’s Dream, the oddly titled but beautiful Catherine Wheel tune, one of my favourite Tindersticks songs, the Alkaline Trio track that never fails to make me want to jump around the room madly, and the epic 12 minute motorik synth […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.26)

And so the second half of this rather mammoth project gets underway. Starting off with one of the few Alcest tracks I could include without breaking the too heavy rule, a bit of old school goth and a whole bunch of other good stuff as usual, including the Ramones doing a cover of Tom Waits’ […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.25)

As Bon Jovi once said, woaah we’re half way there! Volume number 25 takes us on another genre hopping trip, where the idea came from to include track 10 I’ve no idea, I don’t even remember ever downloading that, clearly one of those random dodgy downloads from the days of Soulseek! 1. Grandaddy – He’s […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.24)

A CD can hold 80 minutes of music, Volume 24 clocks in at 1hr20min, boom! Very pleasing! (this mix is slightly shorter because of the, er, mixing) Lots of other pleasures once play is pressed too, such as the wonderful opener from BoC, segueing rather nicely into the Cornelius track. An excellent Grumbling Fur track, […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.23)

Ok, so volume 23 might be the most random mix so far! Starting with more than 8 minutes of droning guitar buzz and sea sounds, there’s sixties stomp with MC5 and The Stooges, rocking sleaze with Peaches and Turbonegro, a short dip into 80s pop (Dept.S, one of the best one hit wonders ever!), a […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.22)

Volume 22. Heading towards half way! We kick off with the haunting, unsettling, almost nautical soundscapes of The Haxan Cloak with its creaking and rattling, disembodied voices and sounds of toil here and there. After the almost Flaming Lipsian vocals of David Lynch we pick up the tempo with a bit of Melt Yourself Down. […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.21)

Slight change from the usual random artist selection method and decided to restrict myself to just female vocalists for volume 21.  No particular reason! As always have a listen below. 1. Björk – All Is Full of Love (Stigmata remix) 2. Goldfrapp – Lovely Head 3. Howling Bells – Setting Sun 4. Made Out of […]
