This year's year-end mixtape. As ever, link leads to tumblr. This is almost all new music this time around; I took out some of the older tracks that I've been listening to this year. Three tracks I would have otherwise included but could not were: +3 )

Basia Bulat has always been wonderful, but this is such a kindly performance of In the Night, and she does some interesting things with the vocals of which j'approve.

Blitzen Trapper's Furr. Now with a link to a gorgeous Daytrotter session version, as seen on Twitter.

So, I've been obsessing over this track on both twitter and facebook recently, mostly because it's brilliant and I love it and it's been a while. I bought the track this week and was a little disappointed to find that the version I initially heard (performed live on Jonathan Ross' show) is better than the one that was released. Not by much, but enough.

Hi, I fucking love youtube.

Florence and the Machine perform Rabbit Heart. Cue my brain floating quietly away, my gosh.


Gah, perfect. Excuse me, I have to go and listen to this again omg.

The guilt and the procrastination aren't linked in any way. I've spent most of today working on the essay and listening to Damien Rice. Now I'm listening to Phil Collins because I'm exactly that kind of awesome. So, via last.fm:

01 genesis: invisible touch.
02 phil collins: something happened on the way to heaven.

Some of you may remember that the songs Dancing in the Dark (Springsteen) and Summer of '69 (Bryan Adams) make me BAWL like a bereaved child. (Yeah, yeah, okay, I know how freaking weird that is.) Well: the above two have a very similar effect. I don't know what it is! It's almost like I love them too much. Which, if you consider what they actually are, is TERRIBLE.

(Haha, when TWoP's Jacob said he uses the second song on his writing playlist, I loled and then cried. Too perfect. Seriously, though, that latter song makes me trip out something fierce.)

Ugh. UGH. c.2200 words left to write.

delga: ([Random] shine on in the hearts of man.)

Haha, so. Gmail keeps showing me this news article which reads "Writers' strike threatens Grammys show" and I consistently misread it as "Writers' strike threatens Germany". Dear Brain, who in the what now? Yeah.

[livejournal.com profile] twincy sent me this song called Dress Me Like a Clown by a band called Margot and the Nuclear So and So's and it is royally SMASHING. It has MUY MUY EXCELLENTE melody and the lyrics are WUNDEBAR. Witness:

you either sing it in key / or run into me / I can fake it as good as you

!!!

I still haven't redrafted my whatsits for ExWrit. HUM. Also: I am très excited for Jodhaa Akbaar which looks like it is not standard Bollywood fare whilst also being quite EPIC and STUNNING.

delga: ([Random] de milo.)
