Many thanks for yours as well @scagden Lots of my musical holy grails on there - Harvey, Oldham, Cave, Callahan and God Machine, and always nice to hear familiar things in a different environment. And like I said earlier, I didn’t consider any of those tracks for my comp (but all fit the theme very well).
One band I’m definitely not familiar with from your comp is A Silver My Zion. Saw them live about a decade ago, but for some reason (that I have no recollection of why) they really offended me and I didn’t last more than 30 mins before bailing out (it’s entirely possible I was just having a bad day). Two very different songs of theirs that bookend the disc - and the last one was really very good. So if I’m to ditch a decades worth of prejudice and general misinformation where do you suggest I get stuck into their back-catalogue?
Only one track that didn’t really do it for me - the Father John Misty one. I’m afraid I’ve got him in the same bracket as War On Drugs as being mystifyingly popular, and not to my liking.
I made some progress on my disc over the weekend, will probably be fiddling with it for another week. Seems to veer between instrumental songs with an apocalyptic feel and songs that are more overtly poliitical. My recipients should receive in about a week.
