Dr. Mindflip - Old

It could be the heat.  It might be a holiday or it could be a shift caused by Google discontinuing Reader, but I'm paying attention to my collection of RSS feeds again.  This release from BlocSonic came into my ears.  I like.  Simple as that.

The description at archive.org goes something like this:

"Today we’ve got a treat for you that goes by the name of Dr. Mindflip. Imagine, if you will, Nick Cave being held hostage by Frank Zappa and the Pixies in deep space… well that comes a little close to what “A Brand New You” sounds like. Sinister, hallucinogenic pop that are at times delivered in unsettlingly-intimate piano melodies."

I don't know that I'm back, but I'm listening

Admiral Bob - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

A very up tempo number from ccMixter.  The mix and mash site has become a repository for great Creative Commons Christmas music over the years.

This mix was posted last week and we are pleased to include it in our 2012 Black Sweater, White Christmas collection.

Musikprat had this to say over at ccMixter:  "Did I ever mention, that ccmixter is the greatest place for music I ever met? Christmas punk is a very rare genre. Thanks for this song. :)"

Gurdonark - Rescue Fantasies

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday to you, Lisa Debenedictis.

Marking the happy day with this Gurdonark remix that highlights that birthday voice. Lisa has been featured on this blog and on the radio show many times and it gives me much pleasure to post again.

Gurdonark has also found favor on this site. Hey man, nice mix.

Lee Rosevere - Trick Or Treat

Two posts in a matter of minutes after going almost a year in silent running.

I had to put this Lee Rosevere piece up to mark the season. Lee is a friend of BSWC and has been featured here in the past. I'm not sure when he put this one up at archive.org, but it is a good one.

"A stormy night pushes you to toward a huge and dark house belonging to the reclusive Dr. Slocum, a mysterious genius who converted a closed asylum into an evil labratory, where he hides from the world with his menage of monsters of science. But the ghosts that haunted the asylum are still there...

Once inside you hear ghostly pianos with no-one playing them, strange moans and cries of terror, floating spirits, dark and empty operating chambers, and more than one dungeon inhabited by abandoned 'experiments'..."


Various Artists - Trick-Or-Treat Mix

Getting into the spirit of the holiday with some creatively common music. This is a Harald Walker mix from 2005.

Time to dress the feed up a little. I think the Japanese have a word for dormant blogs...something about rings on the pond. BSWC certainly has been dormant.

Update: I can't find the Japanese term. Help, anyone?

To Repel Ghosts- Silver Bells

Here it is the first day of December and the Christmas spirit is upon some of us. A Black Sweater, White Christmas post seems appropriate.

This release is from a netlabel called The Plague of Dreaming. It is titled All is Calm.

Definitely a dreamy, mystical version of Silver Bells that should be destined for BSWChristmas infamy. Enjoy.

Jasper Norda - Tomorrow you'll be forgiven but tonight you will have your teeth knocked out

Gosh, it seems to have turned into tomorrow. Here is a tune from the netlabel, 23 Seconds. This is a tune by Jesper Norda from a netlabel compilation, "A Shortcut Past The Fear" I suppose I should be more verbose on the blog, but I have already posted this tune on FaceBook. What the hell. Here it is with no more...

Olddog - Easy Killer (Dog Mix)

This tune is an editor's choice from ccMixter that features the lovely voice of Lisa DeBenedictis. A lovely piece that is well-mixed.

spinmeister sez:

"oldDog wraps long time mixter favorite chanteuse Lisa DeBenedictis into an exquisitely crafted and comforting sonic blanket of mesmerizing patterns."

Ditto - Little Soldier

Ok. BSWChristmas was a blast. I didn't want to leave, but you know...

Here is the song that was in my head all day. Yep. The Snowflake voice is working for me this season...this is going to be an important marker for the 2009 Christmas season for me. Snowflake at ccMixter. Oh, and count on a fantastic mix from Ditto. Thank you.
