GTA - Greg's Turning Autumn

Greg posted an idea for a mix, the dog days of autumn, and I liked it. So the other morning I made this happen. I was listening to it today as Canoga Park became covered with clouds and cooled off for the first time since I got here, it fit well. It's strange that there are a few songs with fire in the title. Think of that what you will.

Grapevine Fires - Death Cab For Cutie
Automonously - The Measure (sa)

Dan's Dirt Sticks or Mantrapping: A Guide

I asked Dan if he'd like to make a mix and lo and behold when I got up this morning there it was. He named it "dirt sticks", I would assume because he just moved to the "sticks" so to speak out in Placerita Canyon somewhere. I can almost picture him working on his still or whittling a punji stick. Dan included a bit of reading material to correspond with his mix and all I will say is that it surprises me in the least that he has a copy of it.

1 Scott Walker--"Cowbells Shakin'"
2 Have A Nice Life--"Bloodhail"
3 William Elliott Whitmore/Jenny Hoyston--"Feast Of A Thousand Beasts"
4 Chamberlain--"The South Has Spoiled Me"
5 Grouper--"Heavy Water/I'd Rather Be Sleeping"
6 Van Morrison--"Starting A New Life"
7 Explosions In The Sky--"Remember Me As A Time Of Day"
8 Horse Feathers--"Albina"
9 Sharks Keep Moving--"Join Up"
10 Sigur Ros--"Agaetis Byrjun"
11 Vali--"Et Ensomnt Minne"
12 The Mountain Goats--"Attention All Pickpockets"
13 Chris Whitley--"Wild Country"

My name is anthony....

And this is my next. I just picked some of the first songs that came up. I've heard some before, and others I haven't. Not necessarily thematically accurate, but it spells it out, right?

Anthony Mix -
A-List Actress - Hey Mercedes
Nailing Descartes To The Wall/(Liquid) Meat Is Still Murder - Propagandhi
T.S.R. (This Shit Rules) - Against Me!
Had It Right - J Church
