For those of you just joining us, every month my friend Juli and I make a mixtape for each other. Our music tastes are both really really expansive. Like, insane expansive. And we're open to everything so really we're the ideal candidates for this game. We pick 20 tracks each month, and then spend careful time sorting and ordering and making sure the tracks go together. Then we make artwork and exchange them on the first friday of each month. I mean, basically we spend way too much time on these. But they're mutually appreciated. Anyway, here is the mixtape I made this month. Let me know what you think if you want.

*HONK and PRONK were both this weekend. I can not even describe how amazing this experience was. 4 straight days of playing, dancing, singing, partying, making friends, and just generally having an AMAZING time. Thanks to everyone who came. It was decidedly the best weekend of my life to date.

First and foremost! THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR HELPING MY SISTER. She and I both appreciate it so much. You are all so very very awesome. Yay.

NOW. ON TO THE POST.



My friend Juli and I like music about the same amount. And we both have the same weird random ass tastes. Actually, last.fm thinks we're 100% compatible, musically [rare].

Anyway, we were talking about how we needed summer time mixes for things like mowing the lawn, or just generally going out and enjoying summer. This is the one I made for her! I decided to share it in case any of you wanted to you know, listen and enjoy. So here it is. Enjoy. If anyone wants to hear / see Juli's, lemme know!

This Saturday, my friends and I, through some digging in various areas, discovered [Okay, Kateri did the dirty work] that State Radio, one of my favorite bands, and certainly their favorite band, was playing an unadvertised concert at Duxbury High School's Performing Arts Center. So we went, and not a regret was had. Though we discovered we were essentially crashing a high school fundraiser for an organization founded by the band, Calling All Crows [link, we had a fantastic time. We wandered in as the second opener, a band from the high school, closed their set. There was one opener left, a band called "TAB the Band" [link], so we expected the crowd to stand in the small area functioning as a pit, while bands maneuvered. Instead they all went to their seats. [Picture, if you will, a high school theatre] This meant that we were able to maneuver to the front and stake places at the edge of the stage. Add into this combination that I was allowed to bring my camera in, and you will see just why my Saturday evening was a grand time.



State Radio, for those new to the game, is an alternative/folk rock band from Massachusetts. They have a chill feel, while maintaining a hard drive. Their lyrics are often of a sociopolitical message [Actually, they played the DNC with Rage Against The Machine]. They have a genre bending style, switching easily from slow to fast song, and the entire time carrying the stage with a powerful presence, making it clear they feel every lyric and chord.

MP3's
Right Me Up
Camilo
CIA
Fight No More




The Band is headed by a former member of the now retired Reggae-Rock band Dispatch [link], Chad Urmston. He leads the vocal lines on most songs, and plays the guitar, usually a well-loved 1958 Les Paul Junior, though for 3 songs he uses a modified Castrol can guitar. [Pictures below the cut]



Mike "Mad Dog" Najarian covers the drums. I have deep respect for him not only because he is an amazing drummer, but because he does so well with a basic kit. So many bands today have a drum set with like 10 drums around them, which they use to cheat out every sound. The sign of a truly talented drummer is the ability toget all of those noises out of a basic kit. </soap box> We more than once commented on getting lost watching him move and groove as the evening progressed.



Bringing the beats together, and supplying the driving bass line, or a smooth simple beat is bassist Chuck Fay. He manages all styles, and brings the line which supports everyone else, and when it comes to the front, he lets it shine with all his might, showing talent and skill.

And one more photo, to pull you into the cut:



Somewhere around 25 images. No more words. I promise. )

I know. I know. I should've gotten rid of more, and there should be less of chad. But I couldn't pick any to dispose of.

And here are some of the opener )

The Concept: Juli and I were discussing the lost art form of a true mix tape. From that conversation sprouted the idea of making virtual mix tapes. Sure they're not on actual tapes, but the rules remain the same; strategic planning of each side so the songs do not run over the allowed time of 30mins per side.


SO. This month's is ALL Covers. I think most of them are really different and interesting variations on the original. One or two are really similar... but done better harmonically.

I realize that many of you may not know some of the originals.

So here's links to mp3's for each one.
Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
MIA - Paper Planes
Weezer - Buddy Holly
Buddy Holly - Not Fade Away [See why I picked that order now? Huh?]
White Stripes - My Doorbell
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Snoop Dogg - Gin and Juice
Notorious B.I.G. - Hypnotize
Madonna - Like A Prayer
Phantom Planet - California
Katy Perry - I Kissed A Girl
Public Enemy - Bring The Noise
Wham - Wake Me Up Before You Go Go
The Arrows - I Love Rock and Roll [THATS RIGHT. JOAN JETT DID NOT WRITE THIS.]
Nena - 99 Red Balloons [This is one of those situations where the original is so god awful it makes you hurt. I'd check out the goldfinger cover too. Oh, and its originally in German, and 99 Luft Balloons, but heres the English version]
Counting Crows - Colorblind
cptntiller: (Baloo!)



This month includes a lot of songs EVERYONE should know. If you don't know Johnny B. Goode, or Shout for example... who are you... and where have you been? It has a lot of older songs, but some new ones as well. Even one classical piece.

Enjoy!

[Also, Rock The Banjos is an AWESOME mash-up]
