MP3 Download: Malaise & Malfunction

Standard

folder
Back in February I had my music on shuffle when Marlene Dietrich’s Favourite Poem by Peter Murphy started to play.  As it came to a close it occurred to me that the percussion reminded me of the theme to The Terminator, so I queued that up and I liked the transition.  Then I played Direct Stress and Strain by Desolation Zone and the industrial noise worked well with the mental imagery of the post apocalyptic future left by the previous song.  Then I just kept going and the playlist practically made itself.

I had about a dozen songs that worked well together, but not perfectly.  I was going to call this one “weird000001” because I was mixing genres and eras that I usually don’t.  But the longer I sat on it, trying to fine tune it, the more I realized I was picking songs about loss.  Eventually I pulled out the more upbeat songs like Popcorn by Hot Butter and went for a more melancholy vibe.

This is a mix about loss and longing.  I figure I’m trying to get over the loss of my Dad and then the loss of my dog, Lily.  This mix starts out pretty slow, but after fine tuning it for 4 months, I’m really happy with it.  I hope you enjoy it as well.

MP3 Download: Do Androids Dream of a White Noise Christmas? Volume 6

Standard

 

folder-600x600
Here it is, Do Androids Dream of a White Noise Christmas? Volume 6.  The 2017 entry in my ongoing series of holiday “mix tapes” (mp3 playlists / downloads) for people that can no longer stand the same old holiday songs that get played all the time on the radio and in the stores.  My musical tastes lean toward the electronic, particularly noisy and industrial, so that’s what you’ll get here (lots of synth wave this year, and, surprisingly to me, even a few rap songs and of course, tons of vocoders).

2017 has been a troubling year, both personally and globally, and that is reflected in this year’s entry.  Volume 7 also has way more F-bombs than ever before, so please give this a pre-listen before sharing this with anyone that might be offended by such language.

Here it is, Do Androids Dream of a White Noise Christmas? Volume 5.  The 2016 entry in my ongoing series of holiday “mix tapes” (mp3 playlists / downloads) for people that are sick and tired of the same old holiday songs that get played all the time on the radio and in the stores.  My musical tastes lean toward the electronic, particularly noisy and industrial, so that’s what you’ll get here.  Genres represented include mash-up, chiptune, vaporwave, shoegaze, dreampop, techno, edm, idm, industrial, synthpop and other related styles.

Before I started on this, I re-listened to the previous entries in the series and I was feeling that Volume 3 & 4 were pretty much perfect.  I was putting a lot of pressure on myself to maintain the same high level of quality as years past, and I think I succeeded.  Let me know what you think.  Track list and download link below.  Happy Holidays!
