So there’s this website which is apparently trying to be the web 2.0 (or are we on 3.0 now?) version of the venerable mixtape. The whole deal is that you can upload up to twelve ten-minute or less songs to it and arrange them, and that’s all. I was a little skeptical at first, but it turns out to be pretty fun. I made one, of course. Hopefully I’ll keep having good ideas for it and change it a bunch of times.
Just as a record of what tracks were on it at the time I made this post:
- Matmos — Solo Buttons for Joe Meek
- Einstürzende Neubauten — Sabrina
- Battles — Tras2
- The Jesus Lizard — Nub
- Bleach — The Head that Controls Both Right and Left Sides Eats Meats and Slobbers Even Today
- Naked City — The Prestidigitator
- Autechre — Simmm
- Hrvatski — Carrot (Hrvatski’s Nightvision)
I particularly like the Bleach/Naked City/Autechre chunk. If any of you are wondering about what kind of music I like, still, check this out, it covers a relatively wide gamut (ambient and true experimental are missing, but even dub is there for like a minute in the Hrvatski track!). Thanks to Dave for letting me know about this.
