Axver

Out With The Old, In With The Nucleus

This list has one simple theme: it is made exclusively featuring bands I have never used in DI before.* Obviously that presents challenges you don't normally get when making a DI list, and it certainly represents a deviation from the usual "Axver DI List". I did not make this list with any other intended story or message, preferring to leave that up to the listener. I find it far more interesting what people get out of music than what any tracklist compiler intends they get out of it.

*Or thought I hadn't. I only realised two artists were repeats after my list was essentially finalised and their spots were well cemented. I used The Go-Betweens in DI II, i.e. ages ago, so I figured I'd let it slide. I used Headless Chickens last DI, an inexcusable oversight, but since their representation is via a remix, I decided to keep it.

1. The Chameleons - "Don't Fall" - Script Of The Bridge (4:06)
2. Amesoeurs - "Les Ruches Malades" - Amesoeurs (4:17)
3. Swervedriver - "Last Train To Satansville" - Mezcal Head (6:45)
4. Whipping Boy - "Users" - Heartworm (3:53)
5. Tamaryn - "The Waves" - The Waves (5:07)
6. Soundpool - "Mirrors In Your Eyes" - Mirrors In Your Eyes (4:29)
7. Blue Hawaii - "Dream Electrixra" - Blooming Summer (2:47)
8. The Depreciation Guild - "My Chariot" - Spirit Youth (4:44)
9. Built To Spill - "Else" - Keep It Like A Secret (4:09)
10. Cloud Control - "My Fear #2" - Bliss Release (3:44)
11. The Go-Betweens - "Was There Anything I Could Do?" - Bellavista Terrace: The Best Of The Go-Betweens (3:08)
12. The Paints Of Being Pure At Heart - "Stay Alive" - The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart (4:56)
13. The Church - "Electric Lash" - Seance (4:25)
14. Adorable - "Sunshine Smile" - Against Perfection (5:04)
15. Les Discrets - "L'échapée" - Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées (4:04)
16. Crocodiles - "Mirrors" - Sleep Forever (5:32)
17. Hüsker Dü - "Girl Who Lives On Heaven Hill" - New Day Rising (3:07)
18. Love Of Diagrams - "Static Information" - Nowhere Forever (4:13)

31. Manic Street Preachers - "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next" - This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours (4:51)
32. Film School - "Heart Full Of Pentagons" - Fission (4:16)

Just an FYI to everyone, in CIB's playlist, for some reason when I was copying and pasting, songs 4 and 5 got put together on the same line. The Joy Division song is definitely supposed to be there as song 5.

Cute Irish Bono
Highlight: 16 Days with Crystal.

Favorite Aspect: There were a lot of good songs on the playlist. I have to say though that it had a shuffle quality to it with odd combinations like Devil Inside and Woman In Chains or Heaven and Shock The Monkey.

Other Things I liked:
1. I liked the White Lies song.
2. You had some great artists on the playlist.

You have a lot of good songs and artists but the order is very jarring.
