Hearts, Razorblades and Holidays

My bimonthly music mix is finally done! Actually, I finished compiling it over a month ago, but I only got a new printer cartrdige (not to mention blank CDs) recently. Here's the tracklist -- you can download certain songs from the original sources, by right-clicking on their titles and selecting "Save Link As":

01. Like a Star > Corinne Bailey Rae
02. Can’t Do a Thing (To Stop Me) > Chris Isaak
03. Debris > The Southland
04. Your Mangled Heart > The Gossip
05. Razorblade > The Strokes
06. Calleth You, Cometh I > The Ark
07. Camellia > Buried Beds
08. I’ve Been Thinking >
Handsome Boy Modeling School feat. Cat Power
09. Oo > Up dharma Down
10. Go To Sleep > The Eames Era
11. Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me > The Pipettes
12. Sister Jack > Spoon
13. Chase the Night > New Sense
14. Big Surrender > Ghosty
15. One Big Holiday > My Morning Jacket

There are a few older songs this time around, like the Chris Isaak (my favorite song from San Francisco Days, the only Isaak album I ever owned). The Southland and The Gossip are two of my new favorite bands -- "Debris" makes me do air-guitar and "Your Mangled Heart" makes me all tingly. Another NFB (New Favorite Band) is New Sense, which is new wave-influenced dance-rock -- you can download mp3s from their site, if you're curious (I highly recommend "Chase the Night" and "Rollerskate").

The Ark song is way, way over the top, but I love it; so catchy and overly dramatic. I ripped the excellent "One Big Holiday" by My Morning Jacket from the WIRED Creative Commons CD. Thanks to Margie, btw, for Spoon's Gimme Fiction! "Sister Jack" is probably the most immediately likable track on that album, but it's all good stuff. And "Camellia" by Buried Beds is just a lovely, lovely love song.

Out of curiosity, who gets your mix tapes?
