There is no real good enough reason for the title of this mix other than it really is a very mixed bag of stuff…more shaken then stirred…which I mixed whilst wearing my smoking jacket sipping a Campari. No? OK, moving on, it’s Friday and the weekend is here so I thought I’d do something a bit different. Most of what I’m playing here is new stuff or random selections of music from outside the normal music-box of FRUK. So settle on back, grab that martini and Enjoy!
You have the freedom of playing tracks individually or, and I recommend this for the full effect, just play the first and the next will follow on automatically.
Shaken not Stirred:
No longer available
Kicking things off with The Dodos from Visiter…this track always makes me feel free…good way to start the weekend:
The Dodos – The Season
Panda Bear – Tomboy. Recorded at his studio in Lisbon, Tomboy sees Panda Bear, aka Noah Lennox, stepping away from the sample-based parameters of his previous record and incorporating more guitar and synthesiser.
Theremin anyone? This is a classic album, The Aliens from their 2008 psychedelic album Luna
The Aliens – Boats
Little Wings: Black Grass is Kyle Field’s most honest and revealing work to date. It is the distillation into its very essence of over a decade’s worth of stunningly beautiful song-craft on Field’s part.
Wolf Ram Heart: from the foothills of Appalachia and the Metropolis of Columbus…from Betrayal of Hearts:
Slowing things down a bit for Viking Moses, this is a rare live one:
Viking Moses – Loving Living
May as well swan off down that road to the Scottish underground scene. Foxgang want to shower you with Red Bull! It’s friday! (recorded in 2009)
Foxgang – Leith Walk
An older classic, The Fall taken from Dragnet:
The Fall – Flat of Angles
and from that merry rapping folkster: Bombadeal, The Blacksmith:
Bombadeal – The Blacksmith (feat. Longfellow)
Hailing from Edinburgh, Araya is the solo work of the Inverness born electronica producer Keir MacCulloch. From The Bridge of Hesitation we end on a chilled note
Araya – Child Let’s Stop
Have a great weekend!
