MIX: Angles + Static

MIX: Angles + Static

I make a lot of mixes in my spare time, as many of my friend’s can attest to. When I was younger I used to spend hours meticulously planning out and recording mix tapes. As I grew older I also grew lazier and resorted to mix CDs. Now, I primarily throw together mixes and send them to friends via Dropbox. I’ll occasionally upload a mix on 8tracks, but for the most part it just requires grabbing some songs I like and a few clicks. I thought I’d edit together a mix for the launch of Static + Distance. This is essentially a collection of my favorite songs from 2014 thus far. There are tracks from earlier in the year by The Casket Girls and Nothing and more recent tracks from Craft Spells and The Antlers. I’m hoping to put out at least one of these a month, but I’m still working out the ideal way to get these out regularly. In the meantime, here’s Angles + Static:

1. Craft Spells – Breaking The Angle Against The Tide
2. Merchandise – Figured Out
3. The Antlers – Director
4. Future Islands – Back in the Tall Grass
5. Fear of Men – Descent
6. Nothing – Somersault
7. The Casket Girls – Ashes and Embers
8. The Notwist – Close to the Glass
9. Liars – Mess on a Mission
10. Hundred Waters – Cavity
11. Mark Barrott – Go Berri Be Happy
12. Bill Callahan – Thank Dub
13. Inventions – Recipient
14. Fennesz – Static Kings
