Desert Island IV Album Game: Round 2, Match 1

Please vote for the tracklisting you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the first match of the second round of the Interference Desert Island Game IV! The premise of this game is that all of the Interferencers have been stranded on a desert island and we can only take up to 160 minutes of music with us (either as a continuous iPod playlist or two 80 minute CDs or any other format of our choosing). The object is to see which forum member can fit the most musical goodness into these 160 minutes.

For every win, each player will receive three points. If there is a tie, each player gets two points. If a player loses a match but is within three votes of the winner, that player will earn a single point.

Here are the standings after Round 1. Remember, the top two from each group moves on to the quarterfinals.




Both Irishteen/Lemonchick and phanan won their respective matches at the end of Round 1, defeating LemonMacPhisto and LemonMelon.

Round 2 starts off with KhanadaRhodes and LJT. Below are their playlists.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each tracklisting flows, feel free to check out the Desert Island website.

Auntie Annie's/ Katy Daly's

It's quite a loose concept that I went with. It's based on probably the two places I frequent the most in Belfast. Auntie Annie's being quite electro, random music, while Katy Daly's the bar inbetween my two other regular haunts, just seems to play the most obscure and random music. The first half is therefore to groove/ dance to (well probably aprt from the first song) with the second half being quite obscure and random. Overall I think i've enjoyed this playlist more than any of the others I've created so I hope you folk have a good time listening.

Auntie Annie's

01. The Wildhearts- "Rooting for the Bad Guy"- The Wildhearts (8.57)
02. Battles- "Leyendecker"- Mirrored (2.48)
03. The Aliens- "Rox"- Astronomy for Dogs (6.15)
04. Menomena- "Weird"- Friend and Foe (3.05)
05. Simian Mobile Disco- "I Believe"- Attack Decay Sustain Release (3.18)
06. Roisin Murphy- "Overpowered"- Overpowered (5.08)
07. Of Montreal- "The Past Is a Grotesque Animal"- Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? (11.53)
08. Tracey Thorn- "Raise the Roof"- Out of the Woods (4.02)
09. Rooney- "I Should Have Been After You"- Calling the World (4.24)
10. Blonde Redhead- "The Dress"- 23 (4.00)
11. The Knife- "HeartBeats"- Deep Cuts (3.51)
12. LCD Soundsystem- "Tribulations"- LCD Soundsystem (4.59)
13. Metric- "Hustle Rose"- Old World Underground, Where Are You Now? (5.33)
14. Silversun Pickups- "Future Foe Scenarios"- Carnavas (5.20)
15. Flaming Lips- "Buggin'"- The Soft Bulletin (3.16)
16. Neon Neon- "I Told Her On Alderaan"- Stainless Style (3.43)
17. Vitalic- "My Friend Dario"- OK Cowboy (3.37)

Katy Daly's

18. Alcest- "Les Iris"- Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde (7.41)
19. Aerogramme- "Barriers"- My Heart Has A Wish That You Would Not Go (4.55)
20. Patrick Watson- "Luscious Life"- Close To Paradise (3.09)
21. Nine Black Alps- "Behind Your Eyes"- Everything Is (2.51)

Khan, LJT's list really didn't do that much for me, while Khan's was a lot of fun to listen to.

Glad your liking some of the stuff, I try to get people into new music with my lists, so if it works with one person, it's all good

That said I am finding hard to take getting thumped in both rounds so far

LJT for this one. I love both playlists and either one deserves to win this. For me the better experience was going through the unknown of LJT's playlist.

Good luck to the both of you.

I voted for LJT's in Round 1, but Khan's playlist is probably my favorite in Group 1, so it gets my vote here.

I enjoyed listening to both, but liked LJT's more. Simple as that.

It's really one of my favorite lists in the tournament, aside from the first song.

There are so many great new songs here that I rate very high.

Battles, The Aliens, Menomena, Simian Mobile Disco, Roisin Murphy, Of Montreal, Rooney, Blonde Redhead, The Knife, Metric, Silversun Pickups, Nine Black Alps, Charlotte Hatherly, Patrick Cleandenim, The Open, Taken By Trees, St. Vincent, Paris Motel -- what a tremendous set of fresh music!
