Sorry guys, I totally flaked on this. I haven't done a thing with this in probably a month. Just, between work and holiday obligations I didn't have time to do this properly and I didn't want to half-ass it or just make up rankings, that wouldn't be fair to everyone who worked hard on their lists. I feel bad.

I guess I'd prefer everything at once. We still have another round to go, yeah? That can be the dramatic unveiling.

This playlist explores what happens when an individual is pushed to extremes. I wanted to create a tense atmosphere for my list, but with different moods and genres as well. It is all about walking on the edge of sanity, with some barely retaining control and other slipping off. These are songs for the moments when your emotions escape you, when you shake or snap, when the pressure reaches a boiling point.

BOWL OF D.I.X.

This is only my second DI, so I can only compare this to my debut entry, where I focused specifically on the 90s and mostly the late part of the decade. The first disc was more rock and the second was more dance/beat oriented.

For my sophomore effort, I didn't go in with any grand plan, mostly I just had a bunch of songs I wanted to share. What it does have in common with the previous collection is that I attempted to use as many b-sides/outtakes/deep cuts as possible. Hopefully the majority of this will sound fresh to everyone.




On a general level, Part 1 (Get Going, Step Out) is a looser affair, more "organic" and outdoorsy, and eventually swung more retro than I realized. It's also fairly mellow, after the party dies down it's pretty smooth going forward. But I've listened to it quite a bit and enjoy it.




Part 2 (Riff Dogs) is definitely rockier and more aggressive, but it also takes a mellow/lighter detour halfway through. I guess I enjoyed finding ways to transition through these songs after I had separated them into two groups, and while it may seem insane on paper, I think I managed to segue pretty naturally from song to song.

Some notes for the curious: Bash & Pop (one of the most obscure artists I used) is fronted by Tommy Stinson, his first band after the break-up of The Replacements. Sarah Shannon is the former singer of brief 90s indie stars Velocity Girl (they even had a Volkswagen commercial!). Thee Midniters are a Mexican-American band from East Los Angeles and an under-heard treasure from the 60s.


NOTE: Please import the .m3u or .xml files into iTunes (or whatever you're using) as it will preserve the playlist settings I gave a lot of attention to w/r/t reducing dead space between tracks and leveling some volume issues.

And now we move on to a group that Phanan said "sucked" to rank. Sure enough, it was extremely tight and there were a number of lead switches. In the end, the last five or so rankings completely flipped things around.

Group 2

FOURTH PLACE, with 83 points...

Dream Sequence #1 (AKA The Party & The After Party)


I don't think I need to give a big explanation here. I started off with the second half of the playlist as I wanted to make some sort of weird dream. So that half has dub music, ambient techno, IDM... Making a 90-minute playlist like that would probably bore a lot of people here and maybe even myself so I added the first part, which consists mainly of hiphop but also some other dancy things. So now the loose concept of this album is a guy partying and then falling asleep. And a more accurate concept is that this is a bunch of songs I love. I hope you enjoy it.

1. Arsenal - "Lotuk" - Lotuk (05:05)
2. Magnus - "French Movies" - The Body Gave You Everything (03:57)
3. Bloc Party - "Flux" - A Weekend In the City (03:37)
4. Gorillaz - "Stylo" - Plastic Beach (04:31)
5. The Streets - "Same Old Thing" - Original Pirate Material (03:22)
6. Stromae - "Te Quiero" - Cheese (03:23)
7. Run The Jewels (feat. Big Boi) - "Banana Clipper" - Run The Jewels (02:52)
8. Kanye West - "Can't Tell Me Nothing" - Graduation (04:32)
9. Outkast - "ATLiens" - ATLiens (03:50)
10. Massive Attack - "Risingson" - Mezzanine (04:59)
11. Laurel Halo - "Still/Dromos" - Chance of Rain (03:51)
12. Autechre - "Piezo" - Amber (07:59)
13. Nautilis - "Epatre" - Sketches (04:51)
14. Boards of Canada - "Nothing Is Real" - Tomorrow's Harvest (03:53)
15. Fennesz - "Endless Summer" - Endless Summer (08:33)
16. Huerco S. - "Struck With Deer Lungs" - Colonial Patterns (02:16)
17. Miktek - "False Dawn" - Elsewhere (06:29)
18. Recondite - "Rise" - Hinterland (02:41)
19. Trentemöller - "Miss You" - The Last Resort (04:03)

Total runtime: 84:44


THIRD PLACE, with a rock solid 92 points that just wasn't quite enough...

No Depression

Since the last DI I’ve been thinking of putting together an Alt-Country/Americana playlist. I’m using these terms pretty loosely, and the list includes some of the founders of alt-country but also indie bands/artists that explored that sound at some point in their careers. There’s no explicit thematic concept behind the playlist other than the common sound and influences, but most songs gravitate towards some of the main themes in the genre: melancholy, heartbreak, departure/travel. The (obvious) image that comes to mind when listening to it is a road trip through the south, and some areas are actually name checked in the songs. Hope you’ll enjoy even you're not normally drawn to this genre.

1. Bright Eyes - “Another Travelin’ Song” - I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning (4:17)
2. Lucinda Williams - “Car Wheels On A Gravel Road” - Car Wheels On A Gravel Road (4:45)
3. Wilco - “Passenger Side” - A.M. (3:34)
4. Whiskeytown - “Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart Tonight” - Strangers Almanac (3:15)
5. Son Volt - “Windfall” - Trace (2:58)
6. Neko Case - “Maybe Sparrow” - Fox Confessor Brings The Flood (2:38)
7. Billy Bragg & Wilco - “Hesitating Beauty” - Mermaid Avenue Vol. I (3:06)
8. Calexico - “Slowness” - Carried To Dust (3:35)
9. Golden Smog - “Radio King” - Down By The Old Mainstream (3:09)
10. My Morning Jacket - “Golden” - It Still Moves (4:39)
11. Ryan Adams - “Come Pick Me Up” - Heartbreaker (5:18)
12. Okkervil River - “Kansas City” - Don’t Fall In Love With Everyone You See (5:46)
13. The Bottle Rockets - “1000 Dollar Car” - The Brooklyn Side (4:50)
14. Old 97’s - “Jagged” - Fight Songs (3:28)
15. Drive-By Truckers - “Tornadoes” - The Dirty South (4:16)
16. Uncle Tupelo - “Anodyne” - Anodyne (4:51)

Total runtime: 64:18


SECOND PLACE, with 99 points after making a huge comeback at the end to secure a spot in the next round...

With my DI lists, I like to focus on the genres of music I'm currently interested in. Since I've been listening to so much music from the the 90s lately, that's made it a prominent factor in my recent playlist. Unfortunately, this time around, I had a lot of different ideas, a lot of struggles to get those ideas to make sense. At the end, I went with two major musical sections, that includes a nice little break of a bridge in the middle to connect them. While most of the music on this list isn't from the 90s that inspired me, its influences and influence are felt throughout the two pieces of the whole.

Hopefully you have as much fun listening to it as I had headaches in making it work.

2. Blue Sky Black Death – “Sleeping Children Are Still Flying” – Noir (5:59)

"Tinseltown in the Rain"

Inspired by icy winters and warming alcohol, this playlist hits on that awesome, classically-80s contrast between frigidity and romance. The title was taken from the list's featured Blue Nile track, which perfectly encapsulates everything I wanted to accomplish with this list. It's sexy and smooth yet still appropriate for moping in an empty bed.

1. Til Tuesday – “What About Love” – Welcome Home (3:57)
2. Kate Bush – “Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)” - Hounds of Love (5:00)
3. Pet Shop Boys – “West End Girls” – Please (4:00)
4. Propaganda – “The Murder of Love” – A Secret Wish (5:18)
5. New Order – “True Faith” – Substance (5:53)
6. Visage – “Fade to Grey” – Visage (4:01)
7. Duran Duran – “Save a Prayer” – Rio (5:27)
8. Madonna – “Live to Tell” – True Blue (5:50)
9. Erasure – “Ship of Fools” – The Innocents (4:01)
10. Simple Minds – “Big Sleep” – New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84) (4:58)

This is the point where the point totals begin to fall off dramatically, but two competitors managed to run away with this one regardless.

Fairer



This time around, my theme was simple: It's 100% songs sung by women. That's it. No other limitations. It's by no means supposed to be definitive, it's just two hours and thirty-eight minutes of songs that I either like or love, covering an assortment of genres, from various time periods and decades, sung by women. I've named it "Fairer", as in the "fairer sex".

An ode to the music styles of synthpop from yesterday and today, with a focus on both "synth" and "pop".

Kraftwerk may not necessarily be pop, but there's no doubting their impact on the formation of the genre; therefore, they were the only logical choice to lead this off.

From there, the progression to Tubeway Army is fairly obvious, as we get our first movement into the pop arena.

After that, anything goes...

A WHISPER IN HEAVEN

1. Kraftwerk - "The Man Machine" - The Man Machine (5:32)
2. Tubeway Army - "Are 'Friends' Electric" - Replicas (5:25)
3. SPC ECO - "Push" - The Art Of Pop (4:16)
4. Little Dragon - "Feather" - Machine Dreams (4:54)
5. M83 - "Teen Angst" - Before The Dawn Heals Us (5:03)
6. Pet Shop Boys - "Home And Dry" - Release (3:58)
7. Haerts - "Hemiplegia" - Haerts (3:49)
8. Little Boots - "Stuck On Repeat" - Hands (3:21)
9. Cut Copy - "We Are Explorers" - Free Your Mind (4:18)
10. Chromatics - "Kill For Love" - Kill For Love (3:58)
11. New Order – “Your Silent Face’ – Power, Corruption & Lies (5:58)
12. Tears For Fears – “Suffer The Children” – The Hurting (3:53)
13. Roxy Music – “Over You” – Flesh + Blood (3:27)*

BLUES & ROOTS

This playlist is an expansion and refinement of a theme I used in a mini-DI a few years ago. My familiarity with the Blues, that most American of genres, has grown exponentially in that time. The Blues takes many forms, but underlying all of them is a distinctive mournfulness, often bolstered with swinging rhythms and a sense of defiant humor in the face of hardship.

01. The Stooges - "Dirt" - Fun House (7:04)
02. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - "Stagger Lee" - Murder Ballads (5:15)
03. The Dead Weather - "New Pony" - Horehound (3:58)

05. Led Zeppelin - "The Girl I Love (She Got Long Black Wavy Hair)" - BBC Sessions (3:03)
06. The Rolling Stones - "Country Honk" - Let It Bleed (3:10)
07. Muddy Waters - "Long Distance Call" - His Best: 1947 to 1955 (2:41)

Can you dance to my beat?



As we dance to a beat that seems out of time
To the one you feel in the metronome of your mind
Does it offend you that our rhythm is strange
Or causes your thinking to be re-arranged
Could it be that you would understand this beat to which we dance
More cleary had you been given the chance
So as you struggle to catch the rhythm with your feet
Ask yourself...
...can you dance to my beat?

Rainbow Serpent Festival 2013 was one of the most crucial weekends of my life. Encouraged by this girl I had fallen in love with, I jumped into a car with a bunch of couchsurfers and drove to the festival, knowing only one person and having never been to a four-day bush doof. I met several great people who I am still very good friends with. I had a ridiculous amount of fun for most of the time, dancing in a donkey onesie and socks to a huge range of electronic music. Drinking. Taking drugs. Talking shit. I discovered that I probably wouldn’t ever get with this girl. She got with another of our crew. I walked off to explore, commiserate, drink and dance by myself. I finally lost my virginity. I also took acid, and had a negative experience with it, becoming extremely anxious, leading to several very scary hours where I thought I’d be trapped forever.

I heard Audiojack’s “Chemical Rewind” version of Homework’s “Ask Yourself” that weekend. It, like so many other things that happened at Rainbow, was a turning point in my life. Some things were great - I now no longer walked around day-in, day-out, with a label reading “virgin” hanging over my head. I discovered more and more electronic dance music that spoke to me in ways dance music had not really spoken to me before. I found that “having fun” was now truly a massive part of my life. I learnt that the mind is incredibly powerful, and that there is nothing scarier than losing control of it.

For months after Rainbow I was, ostensibly, fine. But later in the year, after a bummer of a night, I had some negative thoughts race around my mind. This would have been okay, if they had disappeared like they always had in the past. But something about it took me back to the moments of great anxiety when on acid, and I got stuck for a few days. I told my parents, started seeing a doctor, got medicated and started to get control back. I am still medicated and I still see a doctor. I haven’t been diagnosed with anything but generalised anxiety disorder seems most likely. As it turns out I’ve been living with it my entire life, I just never recognised it in the past. If I told you some of the ridiculous shit that has swum around my mind over the past two years…

This is a playlist that tells you a bit about how I live life. From the high points, having fun, partying, dancing to great music with friends, sometimes you’re in a cool, dank nightclub drinking and taking drugs and talking about how fucked you are, sometimes you’re on you’re own, just digging great music sober at work in the middle of the day, just enjoying life as it is.

Leaving the club, or the bar, or your friend’s house, or walking home from the pub, or the shops, the music slows down as you get reflective, and start thinking about shit. And then, just when you’ve made a life-changing to decision to be neither vacant nor waiting anymore, anxiety hits, like a cloud appearing over your shoulder. Now you’re in trouble, and you can’t get these thoughts out of you. There is something wrong with me. Take your pills, go to sleep.

You can’t say for certain that everything is going to be okay, but there are things you can do to make it seem alright. There are times, plenty of them, where you feel fine. There are crap times, too, but they don’t last forever. For the time being, you just gotta step with care and great tact, remembering life’s a great balancing act.

And now we move on to our last group. I said on a number of occasions that this batch was going to be very close in the end and, sure enough, there was a tie for our 2nd place slot. The victor there pulled away by virtue of their high placements. Every one of these competitors failed to vote except for one, which made things very interesting.

Group 5

FOURTH PLACE, with a score of 59 points that could have been much higher if not for a number of low placements and a voting penalty...

WE CAN ONLY REMEMBER


The original idea was that this was a conceptual list about two lost loves trying to reconnect after years of being apart, whether in tiny country town or post-industrial urban mass, through sticky dance floors, mysterious tragedy and exile on the lonely highway fueled by am radio, all in the realm of flashing memories interpreted through contemporary artists and their influences, but in the end I am basically just gonna say that Snap is an underrated font.

I've come to realise that my usual playlists meander quite a bit and well at nearly 2 hours of music they can be a bit tricky to listen to, especially since I eschew more well known artists. This probably makes my lists a bit harder to digest especially if you have limited listening time, it definitely doesn't make it easy to give it repeat listens. For the 10th Desert Island i've just went for a single hour of music that I feel blasts through at a fair clip. There is little in the way of electronica this time which my previous lists have tended to feature quite a bit of. I think at the beginning I set out with the aim of, if IWasBored liked something from my list I would consider it a success! Anyway I would just like to say that i've enjoyed doing these competitions over the years we have been doing them, and it is thanks to them that i've been introduced to some really good music and they continue to do so.

01. Cursive- "Sierra"- The Ugly Organ (3:25)
02. Black Mountain- "Let Spirits Ride"- Wilderness Heart (5:15)
03. Ty Segall- "Feel"- Manipulator (4:15)
04. Manic Street Preachers- "Love's Sweet Exile"- Generation Terrorists (3:29)
05. Afghan Whigs- "John the Baptist"- 1965 (5:35)
06. Cunninlynguists- "Hard as They Come (Act 1)"- Oneirology (4:17)
07. Saul Williams- "Control Freak"- Saul Williams (4:15)
08. PJ Harvey- "A Perfect Day Elise"- Is This Desire? (3:06)
09. Arrows of Love- "The Knife"- Everything's Fucked (4:21)
10. Dinosaur Jr- "It's Me"- Beyond (5.15)
11. Sons and Daughters- "Rebel With a Ghost"- This Gift (3:01)
12. Surfer Blood- "Neighbour Riffs"- Astro Coast (2:08)
13. Ezra Furman- "My Zero"- Dog Days (3:55)
14. Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld- "A Quiet Life"- Still Smiling (6:05)
