Desert Island VII Master List, Part Two

I'm sending the second Master List thread out a few days early in case anyone wants to take advantage of hearing these over the weekend. Also, I plan on wrapping this up by the end of the month if possible. Here's the tentative schedule:

Master List, Part Three released - around April 12
Master List, Part Four released - around April 22
Rankings Due - April 28
Results Thread - late April 29

Obviously subject to change, but it will more or less be this.

Here's our next group. Links to follow shortly via PM.

I was debating just how to go about this playlist, and in the end I divided 160 by four, and I got 40, which didn’t seem anywhere near as intimidating as 160. So I split my playlist into four albums, each with two sides, and each with a loose “theme” I suppose you could call it. I certainly haven’t been sitting on this for 18 months; as soon as I decided to enter I pretty much threw it all together. With regards to “flow” and “sequencing”, well I’ve tried to make it all sound good together and I think it all works pretty well. So please listen and comment!

Disc one here is all Australian. It includes a few more traditional and well-loved artists as well as some new stuff from a few that I’ve come to love quite recently. Includes Paul Dempsey, who IMO made the best album of ’09. Paul Kelly, this country’s answer to the songwriting craft of Bob Dylan, and 7 Worlds Collide, Neil Finn’s Oxfam charity album featuring the likes of Phil Selway, Johnny Marr and Jeff Tweedy among countless others.

Side A – 19:10
1. Cut Copy – “So Haunted” – In Ghost Colours (4:27)
2. Architecture in Helsinki – “Heart it Races” – Places Like This (3:15)
3. Paul Dempsey – “Bird in a Basement” – Everything is True (4:17)
4. Something for Kate – “Monsters” – Echolalia (3:40)
5. The Go-Betweens – “Streets of Your Town” – 16 Lovers Lane (3:33)
Side B – 22:31
6. Powderfinger – “The Metre” – Odyssey Number Five (4:33)
7. The Temper Trap – “Fader” – Conditions (3:12)
8. 7 Worlds Collide – “Girl Make Your Own Mind Up” – The Sun Came Out (5:30)
9. Augie March – “One Crowded Hour” – Moo, You Bloody Choir (3:50)
10. Paul Kelly – “How to Make Gravy” – Songs From The South, Vol. 1 (4:27)
Running time – 41:41

Disc two is a collection of songs by bands and artists that I have discovered almost exclusively through Interference, more so B&C.

Side C – 21:45
1. Passion Pit – “Make Light” – Manners (4:56)
2. Hot Chip – “And I Was A Boy From School” – The Warning (5:20)
3. Grizzly Bear – “Southern Point” – Veckatimest (5:00)
4. Radiohead – “Reckoner” – In Rainbows (4:50)
5. Brian Eno – “Another Green World” – Another Green World (1:42)
Side D – 20:28
6. The Flaming Lips – “Race for the Prize” – The Soft Bulletin (4:18)
7. Florence + The Machine – “Hurricane Drunk” – Lungs (3:13)
8. The Decemberists – “Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect” – Castaways and Cutouts (4:29)
9. Bloc Party – “So Here We Are” – Silent Alarm (3:53)
10. Los Campesinos! – “In Medias Res” – Romance is Boring (4:37)
Running time – 42:13

Disc three went through various incarnations, originally it was going to be atmospheric and instrumental, but I don’t have enough of that music, so I finally decided on just a list of chilled/laid back/acoustic songs which I really enjoy. Listening to it reminded me how good “Walk on the Wild Side” really is. “Fearless” is one of the great gems of Floyd’s back catalogue. Josh Pyke is an impressive Australian artist and “Northern Sky” refutes the myth that Nick Drake never saw the bright side of life.

Side E – 23:00
1. Steely Dan – “Black Cow” – Aja (5:10)
2. Lou Reed – “Walk on the Wild Side” – Transformer (4:17)
3. Coldplay – “Strawberry Swing” – Viva La Vida (4:10)
4. Pearl Jam – “Elderly Woman Behind a Counter in a Small Town” – Vs. (3:16)
5. Pink Floyd – “Fearless” – Meddle (6:09)
Side F – 18:40
6. Jackson Browne – “The Load Out/Stay” – Running on Empty (9:00)
7. The Beatles – “Blackbird” – The Beatles (White Album) (2:20)
8. Josh Pyke – “The Lighthouse Song” – Memories & Dust (3:36)
9. Nick Drake – “Northern Sky” – Bryter Layter (3:46)
Running time – 41:40

This final disc is most likely what I’ll get slaughtered for, but I love it. It’s an assortment of tracks that I’ve enjoyed clubbing to over the past year, or listened to in order to get psyched before going out. I’ll add -- “The Festival Song” I think most of you all will dislike, but I love it to bits; we listened to it an insurmountable amount of times over the course of Pyramid Rock, an NYE festival, and its lyrics reflect that. “Warp” became probably the biggest club hit of 2009, and Art Vs. Science are a group to watch.

Side G – 15:31
1. 2Pac featuring Dr Dre – “California Love” – Greatest Hits (4:45)
2. The Bloody Beetroots ft. Steve Aoki – “Warp 1.9” – Romborama (3:23)
3. Art Vs. Science – “Parlez-Vous Francais?” – Art Vs. Science EP (3:33)
4. Rage Against the Machine – “Bulls on Parade” – Evil Empire (3:51)
Side H – 18:55
5. Friendly Fires – “Skeleton Boy” – Friendly Fires (3:56)
6. Bag Raiders – “Shooting Stars” – Shooting Stars EP (3:39)
7. Pez ft. 360 and Hailey Cramer – “The Festival Song” – A Mind of My Own (4:22)
8. OutKast – “Roses” – The Love Below (6:10)
9. Hamish & Andy – “Japanese Softball” – Unessential Listening (0:52)
Running time – 34:26

Overall running time – 2:40:00

With Distance I See...

With this playlist I wanted to do two things. First, I really wanted to branch out from my usual artists and try to expose people to new music - 27 out of 35 artists I haven't used before. As usual, I also tried to have a good variety, so there's something for everyone. Secondly, I wanted to try to capture some of my personal experiences, particularly my current stay in Greece. Three artists (Movastro, Misuse, and Afformance) are Greek, two are from bands I've seen or am going to see in Athens (Misuse, Katatonia) and many other songs are ones I've been listening to a lot here. The album cover is a picture I took of the sea from the remains of a Venetian fortress in the Peloponnese. My hope is that my playlist is able to keep the listener's interest and evoke imagery of faraway places.

Peef, I didn't know you liked Okkervil River, Sigur Ros, My Morning Jacket, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol and Iron & Wine! Not to get all Scumbo on you, but give some non-Random Music threads some love from time to time, would you?

Phanan, your list definitely looks like a change of pace for you. Kind of reminds me of my DI4 entry; a lot of classic rock radio staples here. Great MMJ pick, BTW. Anytime is often overlooked but blows me away every time. And Teenage Fanclub is always good.

just as an aside, the reason i split all four discs into two halves was because it gave me twice the number of opening songs and closing songs, and that's how i build my lists. the intention of my list is there is eight "opening" songs.

my goodness there are a lot of overlapping songs in this competition

Actually, not too shocked.

I was trying to convey her assumed unattractiveness. But mostly I'm just too lazy to change the quote around.
