Desert Island VII Master List, Part Four

Welcome to our final Master List thread.

Down to the last four entries (Mr. V had to drop out).

Gonna extend things out a bit further again. These are the dates to remember:

May 17 - Rankings Due
May 19 @ 10pm EST - Results Thread



LMP/No spoken words



Collaborating on such a list is not necessarily a good idea. You'd like these lists to reflect something personal, be it a vibe, emotions or just your tastes. The positive side to such an effort is that, inevitably, songs are brought to the table by one person that were simply not known to the other. So not only did we have fun putting this together, but we were exposed to a few new songs that we immediately liked. And so, in the end, this list manages to sidestep the aforementioned negative aspect to a collaboration in that we both can honestly say that the list contains songs we both like, with an order we both feel works.

The list has a theme, as well, albeit a simple one. It's a day in the life of an anonymous person, and the list carries us through four parts of this person's day:

Segment 1 takes us from the morning to the early afternoon

Segment 2 takes us from the mid-afternoon to early evening

Segment 3 takes us from evening to midnight

Segment 4 takes us from midnight to dawn

My only hope is that after an exhausting 24 hours, our protagonist can finally sleep. And dream........a Tangerine Dream.

YOU'RE JUST TOO OBSCURE FOR ME

My passion for New Zealand is not much of a secret. Two of my past lists have been in some way connected to the country - one a story of early colonial life, the other a nostalgic hometown reflection. New Zealand musicians have routinely shown up in my lists. This list takes that fascination to its logical conclusion, and will by necessity guide my future lists further afield. It is, quite simply, a list devoted exclusively to New Zealand music. Every song on this list was performed by a New Zealand band (or in two cases, bands formed in Melbourne, Australia featuring New Zealanders famous from Split Enz).

This list naturally reflects my biases with regards to New Zealand music. It focuses heavily on the "Dunedin Sound" scene of the 1980s and early 1990s, a scene that in fact did not have one single sound, but ranged from jangle pop to lo-fi rock to noise experimentation. It was popularised by independent record label Flying Nun, whose founder Roger Shepherd released any music he liked, regardless of its (lack of) commercial appeal. Although the scene's hub was the southern city of Dunedin, a significant number of bands actually came from elsewhere in New Zealand, most notably Christchurch's The Bats and Auckland's Able Tasmans, not to mention the scene's most influential musician, Martin Phillipps of The Chills, a Wellingtonian by birth.

Beyond the Dunedin Sound, my list provides some attention to the various projects of Split Enz members, notably brothers Neil and Tim Finn. The Screaming Meemees and Blam Blam Blam provide representation for the North Shore Invasion and the pre-Flying Nun scene in Auckland. You'll find some other stuff around the place too; even a bit of my beloved post-rock via the Hawkes Bay. Some scenes have unfortunately been neglected; I confess to little knowledge of New Zealand music prior to the late 1970s (The Avengers are the sole 1960s band), I wilfully neglected the rubbish of the contemporary South Auckland scene, and Salmonella Dub just sounded ludicrously out of place.

You will notice the recording quality of some tracks is ... not ideal. Shut out by the major recording companies, many bands of the 1980s resorted to whatever recording equipment they could get their hands on, forcing a lo-fi aesthetic upon their music. Many of these recordings were pressed solely on vinyl and are rather scarce, hence it was difficult to even find a copy (good luck finding Terraces, for instance). Do forgive the failings of any rips. I think the songwriting and passion of the musicians outweighs any shortcomings of the recording conditions and the rips. I hope you do too.

Aurora Borealis

I spent more time on this playlist than any I've made before - this is the second main DI I've done(the other was the very first DI), but the fourth DI I've done counting the mini-games(Symphonic Island, Retro Island, and Best Of 2000s). Going in, I decided to make a playlist with an electronic/classical/otherwise instrumental theme. I really wanted this playlist to sound like fantasy, maybe even somewhat otherworldly at times - that's why I named it 'Aurora Borealis', because Aurorae Borealis look like fantasy, and I wanted this to sound like fantasy; whether or not I succeeded in that, you'll tell me, but that was my aim here. I modified the tag information for Album and Track Number for all of the tracks, so I think they should appear in the right order automatically, but I can't promise that they will, because I modified the information with VLC Player and I don't know if ITunes will see the changes correctly(I use ITunes primarily, but I would've had to import second copies of everything since I don't want to modify my main copies, and that would've been confusing). I uploaded it all in one zip, so it's a bit on the large side - if that's an inconvenience to anyone, I can split it in two.



The first part of the playlist is the electronic part - some of it is pure 100% electronic music, some of it is electronic-influenced music, some of it is video game music. A couple of notes about the first two tracks - the first track sounds orchestral but is actually electronic, because the orchestra isn't real, from what I understand, and the second track is the only track in the first part that is 0% electronic, it's completely orchestral. For this part in particular, I used it as an excuse to listen to some big electronic names that I had been wanting to listen to more of for a while now - Kraftwerk, Daft Punk, Bjork, Aphex Twin, Komputer(not so well known, I guess), the NIN Ghosts album, and Genesis(ok, they're not an electronic artist, but the second half of the track I picked fits the electronic mold fairly well). I also discovered Royksopp via somebody else's playlist in this DI, really digging them. I enjoyed listening to all this electronic music, it's a genre I've wanted to get to know better for a while now.

Total Running Time: 1:30:27



The second part of the playlist is largely orchestral in nature…it's got video game music, some classical pieces, some proggy stuff(Bowie, Floyd), some rock-symphonic stuff(Muse), and a Sigur Ros track(which doesn't exactly sound like it fits the theme on paper but I think fits in really well). This part is pretty heavy, it has a fairly dark vibe at times, but I think there's a lot of really beautiful and powerful music here. I kind of used the Exogenesis Symphony as a centerpiece here, and I think all four of the tracks preceding it sort of build up to it. A note about the way I chose to end it; I may have made the ending a little too epic, with the huge build up in the second half of the Sigur Ros track leading into the almost-half-hour-long Pink Floyd track. I honestly thought both tracks sounded like 'grand finale' type tracks, but in the end, the last 1-2 minutes of Atom Heart Mother are just too epic to be anywhere but the end for me. I used the Final Fantasy IV Prologue as a post-ending epilogue type thing. Yes, I appreciate the irony of using a track called 'Prologue' for that purpose. But the FF games themselves have all played some variation of the track during the end credits, after the big ending, for years now, even though it was originally the prologue in FFIV. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do, I'm pretty proud of this playlist.

These lists look exceptional. Too bad about Mr. V's list. It looks good to me in theory.

Mr. V was able to get his playlist uploaded after all, so he's now back in the competition.

Khan, I'll send you a PM as well, but could you please copy and paste Mr. V's playlist and add it to the end of my first post so that it is included? Thanks.

I will be listening to Ax's playlist today. Looks like a break from the norm this time, so I'm intrigued.

Yeah, this sure isn't the typical Ax playlist.

I recognize some of the artists from past entries, like The Bats, Straightjacket Fits, etc. And of course I'm familiar with all Finn related projects, but most of this is new to me, which is the point.

Can't say I'm liking all of it, but there have been some things here and there that I've really enjoyed, starting with the very first track, which I thought was fantastic. Others didn't impress me as much, but there wasn't anything truly appalling either.

While listening, I read up a bit on the Dunedin Sound scene. A fascinating history, and interesting to see how some of the influences weren't from other punk bands at the time, but rather The Velvet Underground and The Stooges (at least according to wiki). I thought that was interesting.

Anyway, I'll have more to say as I finish it out.

The last group of songs ended up being the part I liked the best. Dirty Creature is one of best Enz songs, you got in a little post-rock with Jakob, I had never heard the Evermore song and really dug it, and finally, you closed the whole thing out with a gorgeous Crowdies track.

I appreciated the chance to get to know more of the music from where you come from. I honestly prefer some of your other playlists over this one, not because I'm more familiar with that material, but simply because that's more to my taste. Still, it was good to check out some stuff that I would most likely never hear otherwise. You can never go wrong with that.

I've begun namkcuR's playlist. On paper, there appears to be quite a bit that I'll like.

Took a few tracks to get going; while I liked the opener, I didn't think the next two songs fit very well, but once Daft Punk started, things picked up considerably (although I prefer the original Major Tom). Great Kraftwerk track you chose, from my favorite album of theirs. Miss It So Much is good, although I prefer other songs from that album.

So that's where I'm at now, Spacelab.
