March 2012 Mix


So, I decided to do a March mix after all. Turns out I didn’t end up going to Nicaragua. Bought a house instead. Here’s what I was listening to as I signed papers and wrote checks:

  • Mind Spiders – Meltdown: Do you like your garage rock a little bit creepy?
  • Disappears – Pre-Language: Come to think of it, this shit’s kind of menacing, too. I need to lighten up.

Honorable mention goes to Gucci Mane.

On to the mix:

1) Radiohead – The Daily Mail
Did you know that Radiohead has a guitar player? After King of Limbs, I assumed they had just gotten rid of him. He makes a brief, but welcome re-appearance on this song.

2) Frankie Rose – Interstellar
Latest Pitchfork favorite, starts strongly (with this song), but then stagnates.

3) Action Bronson – Bird On A Wire (Feat. Riff Raff)

4) DaVinci, Dieselino, Squadda Bambino – Top Shelf
My latest top shelf obsession

5) Usher – Climax (Prod. by Diplo)
R&B singers who don’t beat the shit out of women deserve more attention/acclaim than those who do.

6) SWV – Rain (Kid Icarus Bmore Remix)
The Wire needed more club music. Fuck that “Down in the Hole” song.

7) ETC!ETC! – Temblando

8) Henning – Villains Day Off
Don’t know much about this guy, but he does a pretty good (Dam Funk-approved) Dam Funk impression.

9) Union – Preset Mars feat. Roc Marciano
Roc Marci even makes this smooth glittery shit sound grimy.


11) Killer Mike – Big Beast (Bun B, Trouble & T.I.)
I cannot wait to hear the rest of this album.

12) A.Dd+ – Sh*t Got Crazy
Crazy > Cray

13) Jr. Walker & The All Stars – Shoot Your Shot
Word to Divine Styler.

14) Masta Killa – D.T.D. (ft. Raekwon & Ghostface Killah)
I didn’t realize the Wu killed that Otis sample long before Kanye and Jay.

15) Jackie Chain – Ridin In Da Fo Do (Produced by Block Beataz)
I need to make a mix of the best ridin’ music.

16) G-Side – Land In The Sky
How many amazing G-Side songs didn’t make it onto iSLAND? My lord.

17) Gucci Mane – Okay With Me (Feat. 2 Chainz)
2 Chainz is quickly becoming a favorite: “shawty got them crab legs, I got that Old Bay with me”

18) Bonde do Role – Bicha Velha
Anyone else care to join me in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup?

19) Mind Spiders – Wait For Us
I think it’s about time for these guys to come through Raleigh for a show already.

20) Disappears – Replicate
Speaking of coming through Raleigh, will be catching these guys on the 21st.

21) The Men – Open Your Heart
The perfect soundtrack to crushing PBRs.

22) Fort Lean – Sunsick
These guys do a pretty good White Rabbits impression.
