January 11th Mixtape Guest Blog from Huseyin Kishi

leave a comment »

First guest mixtape of 2012 is brought to you by a member of the Twitterati, Huseyin Kishi. It’s a mystery how he crams in university work with the amount of informative articles and songs he digs up. I highly recommend you follow him if you’re interested in politics and the doomed climate we currently reside in. He also has insanely cool music taste and I’m forever in his debt for introducing me to Mariee Sioux.

Click here to play Huseyin’s mixtape on YouTube but may I recommend that you watch and not just listen as his choices are very much all about the performances and poetry as well.

  1. Trespassers William – Different Stars Live (A song of great beauty and truth)
  2. Mariee Sioux – Wild Eyes (A transcendental journey)
  3. Tim Buckley – Phantasmagoria in Two (Jeff’s father, perhaps anguish is passed down)
  4. Julie Doiron – Condescending You (Never bettered, simply bitter)
  5. PJ Harvey – The Darker Days Of Me & Him (A song which sets her apart from anybody else, it is philosophy with music)
  6. R.E.M – Losing My Religion (Timeless)
  7. Carry Me Ohio – Love acoustic/Lost verses (An articulation of the contradiction of sorrow, loss, love and celebration)
  8. Idaho – To Be The One (Abstract words cemented in blossomed feelings)
  9. The Civil Wars – Billie Jean (from Later with Jools Holland, wonderful reworking of a classic)
  10. Alela Diane – Age Old Blue (Just another folk-tale)
