Sampler Ⅲ

321 words on

Last summer, our flatmate Daniel made a compilation CD which kept running in the kitchen most of the summer. It had the name ‘Sampler Ⅰ’. It’s a nice mix of great and so-so songs of indiepop around the world an in Germany. As time went on, demand for a ‘Sampler Ⅱ’ was heard. But that CD was never created as such but one of my earlier mixes this year took the role just by virtue of getting countless plays in the kitchen CD player and being referred to as ‘Sampler Ⅱ’ after a while.

And then the question about ‘Sampler Ⅲ’ started to appear. And here it is:

  1. The Strokes feat. Regina Spektor: Modern Girls and Old Fashioned Men
  2. The Cloud Room: Hey Now Now (cool video as well)
  3. Ben Folds: Such Great Heights
  4. Architecture In Helsinki: Wishbone (Rah Teti Remix)
  5. Love Is All: Ageing Had Never Been His Friend
  6. CSS: Let’s make love and listen death from above
  7. Tegan and Sara: Where Does the Good Go
  8. Sufjan Stevens: Chicago (Acoustic)
  9. Band Of Horses: St. Augustine
  10. Mobius Band: A Hint of Blood
  11. We Are Scientists: Hoppípolla
  12. The Swingle Sisters: Little Organ Fugue (a capella Bach goodness from the Thank You for Smoking soundtrack)
  13. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah: Cigarettes (BBC 6 Music Gideon Coe Session)
  14. Teddybears : Punkrocker
  15. Ghislain Poirier: La Blessure
  16. The Thermals: Here’s Your Future
  17. Tapes ‘n Tapes: Insistor
  18. Snow Patrol: Hands Open
  19. The Raconteurs: Crazy (well, everybody’s covering it…)
  20. Tiger Tunes: Highly Visible & Out Of Control
  21. The Pipettes: Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me
  22. Nouvelle Vague: Ever Fallen In Love

Let’s see how well that mix goes down. With it’s odd combinations of unexpected cover versions (We Are Scientists doing Sigur Rós – I am tempted to add a !!!!!LOL after that) and stuff from the internets it may have a slightly harder time finding friends.
