Thanks for the mix @bornin69x
I think I found your cd a bit hit and miss, but partly because I do less well with older songs (although it’s always interesting to hear what I don’t know - which is a lot!), and I’m most likely part of that DIS audience who does less well with reggae and soul tracks… even though my first ever cd album as a youth was a reggae compilation cd which I played to death and enjoyed back then.
The ones I enjoyed:
The Go-Betweens - almost reminds me a bit of The Divine Comedy’s Promenade album, but mainly because of the oboe.
Can - I know the name, but never heard before, but liked this a fair bit more than I was expecting. Quite a fun sounding song.
Liz Phair - Not sure if I’d like her other songs if they’re a bit 90s alt-rock, but I mainly like this one because of the higher pitched singing backing vocals.
Bjork - I’ve still never gotten around to getting any of Bjork’s albums, so it’s always nice coming across her on mixes and enjoying them. This is really nice.
Momus - I’ve never listened to him before, but sort of what I was expecting. It’s nice and catchy.
The Avalanches – all I’ve really listened to before by them is Frontier Psychiatrist. It’s good head-bopping stuff. Really enjoyed.
Brian Eno - another name I know, but never listened to, and agree with @DustyNothing about the nice minimalist sounds in it.
Prefab Sprout – again, I know the name, but not listened to before. Was expecting more jangly guitars. But it sounds quite nice and crisp and quite lovely. But maybe that’s just because it’s an acoustic version and maybe they’re normally jangly?
Low – I have (and like) their xmas ep, and have liked another song of theirs which was on a previous mix I received from another DISer. Very understated, but I really like the feel to it.
Belle and Sebastian – I just have one or two of their albums, but mostly like what I heard. This song is really good, and so it’s probably between this, Bjork and The Avalanches for my favourites from the cd.
