The Signal: EP061 - A not-so-dangerous game of cat and mouse! Thank you all for coming, especially those of you who are new to The Signal. (And we know there's at least one of you.) We're very glad that these mixes aren't only enjoyed by just us... though don't get me wrong, they get a lot of use in my personal mp3 player as well. It's always a pleasant surprise when I put the thing on random, then hit a Signal mix without realizing it and find myself thinking "Man, I'm lucking out! I love all these songs!"
I guess that happens less often since I've started layering sounds into the mixes. They can't pass for random songs as easily anymore. Things change. Seasons change. This big blue marble keeps on turning. ID3 tags continue to have the track listing. Mixes are available for a limited time. This is just a hobby thing, shared with friends. Let's leave the search engines out of it. Notes are after the jump, if you're viewing this on The Signal weblog, or in subsequent paragraphs if you went straight here.
Friend-of-SignalStation misuba has put up 8 tracks of 2009 goodness over here, if you want to check it out. I'm three tracks in and digging it... odds are good it's gonna hold up!
The Signal: EP060 - I am so happy with this mix, folks, seriously. I started with just a big pile of music and then it all fell together into a thematic roughly-45-minute musical accompaniment to any occasion that includes drowning. Damn it's cold in this apartment. So yeah, music about dying, cold and wet. Winter is here and it needs a soundtrack.
The mix will be available for a limited time only. The tracklist is included in the id3 tags because I don't want this mix to be Google bait. This is for you and me, baby, the world can stay out of this. I have some notes after the cut, but they're not necessary to enjoy the mix. This is primarily because music is good enough on its own and does not need additional words from me, but additional words are there if you want them.
What else do you need to know.
Cherokee Boogie: Two albums of blues tracks about Native Americans. Haven't downloaded/listened myself, but it's the sort of compilation I wouldn't have imagined existed, but here the internet is trying to give it away for free.
The Signal: oh I'm like totally so scared - A mix of ghost-tacular spook-arific fantasmagodgicalistic tunes for your entertainment. Can also be used for purification ceremonies and the banishing of unwanted spirits. Available for a limited time, downloaded from elsewhere, track list in the id3 tags. Notes after the cut.
Also: BOO! Ha ha ha! SCARED YOU, you fraidy cat! It's only text on a screen! (I hope I do not ironically die from text on a screen someday.)
