field day mix


so ahead of field day i was going to do a rundown of the acts i’m excited about seeing, but instead i threw a mix together with some of these acts. it’s far from exhaustive – i can’t say i’m familiar with every act on the lineup – but it features a breadth of styles and is hopefully somewhat representative of what’s on offer. there are a couple of drastic shifts in mood, which all (hopefully) make sense from a tonal point of view, but also capture the feeling of leaving one act and seeing another completely different performance on a different stage. or not 😉 either way, i hope you enjoy.

good weather for staying indoors and blogging

it’s friday and i’m a little bored. and it’s gone from dry to thunderstorm to sunny to cloudy in the last 90 minutes. currently listening to to old armand van helden tracks. no this isn’t a nostalgia post, just sayin’ 😉 i’m really excited about seeing aeroplane at field day next week. it’s just a dj set but still, they make great music and listen to great music so i think i’ll enjoy it. here’s a funny interview with one of them from dummy magazine:

Do you feel emotional when you play?

Sure! Life is about emotions! But not only good ones unfortunately.

asian dan has a link to their june mix, and i guess their set next week will follow a similar path. i hope so anyway. i guess it’s my mix for this weekend.

another act i’m really excited about seeing is final fantasy. i had the pleasure of seeing him three nights in a row (kind of) in december 2007, but haven’t seen him since. i gather his galway show last month was pretty spectacular, so i’m expecting a lot. maybe a new random cover or something.

life and errands

my good friend caoil has just set up a blog in response to claims that twitter is killing the art of blogging. she’s a final fantasy fan, but you’d never think it. owen pallett love aside, she’s some delightfully sardonic views on life and music which will hopefully bring a wry smile to your face.
