Sampler Ⅵ

278 words on , ,

After the highly popular Sampler Ⅲ made in October – which is on its way to become one of the most popular CDs in the world (I should make a map for its distribution) – there was a bit of waiting so the other guys could make some samplers and those got the attention they deserved. And when it was my turn again, my playlist with potential songs was so long that it almost filled two CDs. A long time of shuffling things around (including a preliminary Sampler Ⅵ β) followed and I finally settled on the mix below which is on the slower side with sidesteps into obscurity and oldies but goldies in it.

  1. Notre Dame: Sur Ton Repondeur
  2. The Hit Parade: Autobiography
  3. Architecture in Helsinki: The Owls Go
  4. Final Fantasy: That’s When the Audience Died
  5. CocoRosie: Beautiful Boyz
  6. Go Home Productions: Essex Doves (David Essex / Doves)
  7. Pluxus: Igår, idag och from nu
  8. Stereo Total: Das Erste Mal (Mad Professors Dub Trip 3)
  9. The Strokes: I’ll Try Anything Once (‘You Only Live Once’ Demo)
  10. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah: Some Loud Thunder
  11. Dr. Dog: Easy Beat
  12. Islands: Rough Gem
  13. Malajube: Montréal -40°C
  14. Arcade Fire: Intervention
  15. Sufjan Stevens: The Henney Buggy Band
  16. Opal: Empty Box Blues
  17. St Christopher: All Of A Tremble
  18. Of Montreal: Wraith Pinned To The Mist And Other Games
  19. David Vandervelde:Jacket

And there’s cover art as well which can be seen as a spring-time tribute to Zapfino.

Boo for iTunes which seems to cover less than 50% of the songs used when submitting the compilation as an iMix. And Last.fm aren’t much better.
