Playlist: Almost Still

For this playlist, I decided to go with a musical theme rather than a storyline. I've been working on this since the end of the last desert island and was inspired to make something quieter than my usual picks. Most of these songs are slow-to-mid tempo tracks that put you into a serene state of mind. Hopefully, you will all enjoy listening to this playlist as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Title: Uptempo/Downtempo

Cover Art:

THE EXACT COLOUR OF DOUBT

Does this playlist have a theme? Not really. These are just songs I like. The overal atmosphere is pretty dark though, so that's where the cover and the title come from. I think it fits the music. And I just like that particular song title a lot. The first half is mainly electronic but it slowly gets more conventional. I hope there are at least a few artists you're unfamiliar with. I'm sure there are a few, even if it's only two or three (the Belgian artists). Enjoy.

(Note: I don't know how to change the album artwork in the files itself so it shows the Haxan Cloak artwork (in my iTunes at least). You can always change it if you so wish, the cover's in the zip file.)

1. Liars - "The Exact Colour of Doubt" - WIXIW (4:08)
2. Björk - "Hunter" - Homogenic (4:15)
3. Amatorski - "Soldier" - tbc (4:21)
4. Trentemöller - "Take Me Into Your Skin" - The Last Resort (7:44)
5. The Haxan Cloak - "Excavation (Part 2)" - Excavation (4:13)
6. Burial - "Loner" - Kindred EP (7:28)
7. Mogwai - "Sine Wave" - Rock Action (4:55)
8. Blur - "Battle" - 13 (7:44)
9. My Bloody Valentine - "When You Sleep" - Loveless (4:12)
10. Deerhunter - "Operation" - Weird Era Continued (4:04)
11. Queens Of The Stone Age - "Misfit Love" - Era Vulgaris (5:40)
12. Arcade Fire - "Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)" - Funeral (5:13)
13. Radiohead - "Climbing Up The Walls" - OK Computer (4:45)
14. The Cure - "From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea" - Wish (7:45)
15. dEUS - "Gimme The Heat" - In A Bar, Under The Sea (7:38)
16. The National - "Cardinal Song" - Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers (6:20)
17. Balthazar - "Sides" - Rats (3:06)

Total runtime: 93:31

Saturday Night, Sunday Morning

Forgive me for the admittedly cliché topic, but it gave me some freedom with the sounds and moods I wanted to explore. Saturday night starts off as the protagonist escapes yet again to the city, to find entertainment and sex. Despite the glowing lights and glamour, he thinks of Jane Smiley, whom he left yet again at home after a meaningless argument. The bright lights start to get blurry as he realizes the mistakes he's made. Suddenly, the people around him don't look so extraordinary, and the substances he consumed start to take their toll. He wonders if he will make it through this. Sunday morning is full of regret. He asks for forgiveness, but doesn't expect it. He realizes it's too late. As Jane leaves, he feels alone in the house. He pretends he can have her back and return home to southern Carolina. But he drives alone to the house of his estranged father, frozen underground.

Volume I

1. Kavinsky Feat. Lovefoxxx - "Nightcall" - Drive Original Soundtrack (4:20)
2. M83 - "Midnight City" - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (4:04)
3. Grimes - "Genesis" - Visions (4:15)
4. Purity Ring - "Fineshrine" - Shrines (3:30)
5. Phantogram - "Mouthful of Diamonds" - Eyelid Movies (4:13)
6. Broken Social Scene - "All to All" - Forgiveness Rock Record (4:50)
7. Autre Ne Veut - "Play by Play" - Anxiety (5:14)

9. Wild Nothing - "Midnight Song" - Nocturne (3:07)
10. Beach House - "Wishes" - Bloom (4:47)
11. Beck - "Chemtrails" - Modern Guilt (4:40)
12. James Blake - "Voyeur" - Overgrown (4:18)
13. Sufjan Stevens - "I Want To Be Well" - The Age Of Adz (6:29)

Run time: 57:28

3. Tame Impala - "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" - Lonerism (3:13)
4. The National - "About Today" - Cherry Tree (4:11)

What's good about the Saturday night theme is it's kinda universal and across generations, plus Aute Ne Veut's track Play by Play is what is commonly known as a 'tune'. Plus I like the tourists as you have a couple of tracks I don't know, which I always enjoy discovering.

I wish I could explain how happy seeing these playlists makes me. From the weirdest to the most well adjusted of us, we all share a very deep love of music that, at least in my circle of friends and family, your average person does not fully relate to or understand and thus it's hard to share. For example, on Sunday a friend of mine and I went to a little vinyl record swap meet in Chinatown. I don't even own a record player yet I loved being around this environment....songs blaring, music lovers combing boxes for that album they covet, etc. I could have stayed all day. My friend wanted to leave after 30 minutes, so I indulged her and we split. Not a big deal, but perhaps slightly illustrative. So...that passion cannot be channeled in too many different ways...you can listen, of course....you can learn to sing or play or write music.....maybe teach it even....but your options narrow after that, especially if you have the love and passion but not the aptitude. For the music nut, making a playlist is a potentially naked form of expression. Maybe you cannot find the words or craft the music to match how you feel or think, but songs can be your proxy. It's easy to make a playlist, but it's a labor of love to make one that shines a light on something about you that maybe cannot be gleaned by any other means. Maybe I'm just speaking for myself - as a long time consumer of art but one who is wholly unable to create any - so forgive me if this is not just a corny post but a horribly self centered one at that. I guess I'm just saying that the huge music dork in me is able to walk arm in arm with the eternally inquisitive person in me when these competitions take place. I learn about music, I learn about you all, and that means something to me, even if it's just a playlist and even if it's just the internet.

I'll stfu and sorry for the random post. Looking forward to giving these lists a listen.

Oh, and, seeing "I Don't Wanna Go On With You Like That" pop up on a list is wonderful. I mean, this is an ocean of amazing tunes and this song is not nearly at the top, but still...an unexpected little inclusion. Nice.

I was a bit hesitant at first, but it worked well enough for the kind of songs I wanted to play. It's universal theme, as LJT said, so it always ends up working. Hope you guys will like it.

I'm an unapologetic Elton fan, even for the cheesiest bollocks he put out in the 80s and 90s. I remember this track being one that really stuck with me when I first picked up a greatest hits package of his however many years ago.

Technically mine could fall under that category too, once I finalize it. Hell, a few years ago I made up a shitty novel-long story loosely based off my all time favorite album that essentially adhered somewhat to that theme. Except whenever I do it, Saturday night is fairly dark and it's implied that by Sunday morning my central character is dead...

You must have some fun nights out

On my Saturday nights out you're lucky to see me on the Monday, I just party harder. I'm actually struggling to think of the last Saturday I went out, work sucks.

Nice heartfelt piece NSW, I also struggle with people who just don't get music in general. It is to too many just something in the background or what they dance around to in the club beyond that it's nothing, hence why you have music by the likes of Celine Dion and Chris de Burgh for people who don't really like music.
