midnight in the city/josh

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on 07/05/2011 by deathbedsongs

so this is a companion playlist to the city by day that was posted earlier today. this one is a lot more focused conceptually, not so much about the concept of the city itself but generally about a couple in love in the city and the troubles of the night/life/relationships.

really, just imagine a man and a woman in a big city that are clueless as to what’s next in life (romantically, career wise, money wise) and the conversations they’d have over dinner, or walking under streetlights, or whatever. the song titles really explain the story i was going for, the lyrics just flesh it out.

FFO: gothy, shoegaze stuff, romantic stuff, my idea of a city at night and soundtracking a couple, cluelessness, a really relaxed mix.

mazzy star – look on down from the bridge

the walkmen – on the water

esben & the witch – swans

grouper – we’ve all time to sleep

air formation – the dark has fallen

chapel club – bodies

the cranberries – put me down

arcade fire – headlights look like diamonds

the joy formidable – the greatest light is in the greatest shade

wye oak – talking about money

the national – walk off

i like trains – hope is not enough

i love you but i’ve chosen darkness – last ride together

the twilight singers – love

highspire – dead by dawn

the city by light / josh

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on 07/05/2011 by deathbedsongs

this mix is a really strange, multi-dimensional view of a highly populated city. for some people it ends up being all they ever see, for others it’s a destination, others- a transitional space. the idea i was getting at with each track is the perspective of your everyday man or woman, age/lifestyle/beliefs aside. the city during the day becomes a place of hope, prosperity, wonder, poetry, and banality. we’re all sort of looking for tiny sparks of life amidst all that’s going on.

hopefully you get that. if not, well, i hope you at least dig some of the songs

FFO: indie rock, hopes, cities, ben gibbard’s sorrow dripping through a pinhole, david bowie, a dub song (not dubstep), being complacent with concepts in mind.


the hold steady – stuck between stations (acoustic)

shearwater – sung into the street

death cab for cutie – marching bands of manhattan

interpol – public pervert

the strokes – this modern age

david bowie – young americans

jenny & johnny – new yorker cartoon

the national – apartment story

jesse malin – lowlife on a high rise

bloc party – waiting for the 7.18

burial – in mcdonalds

mogwai – letter to the metro

crime in stereo – unfortunate tourists

foo fighters – walking after you

jimmy eat world – coffee & cigarettes

on the road / josh

Kerouac’s classic. I’ll give you a synopsis and say this: if you haven’t read it you’re missing out on a really great novel & piece of literature.

Synopsis (wikipedia): On the Road is a novel by American writer Jack Kerouac, written in April 1951, and published by Viking Press in 1957. It is a largely autobiographical work that was based on the spontaneous road trips of Kerouac and his friends across mid-century America. It is often considered a defining work of the post-war Beat Generation that was inspired by jazzpoetry, and drug experiences. While many of the names and details of Kerouac’s experiences are changed for the novel, hundreds of references in On the Road have real-world counterparts.

Essentially, this mix encompasses youth, wanderlust, introspection, and the urge to find more amidst a world that’s just sort of… bullshit.

coconut records – west coast

neil young – on the beach

bob dylan – down the highway

bright eyes – hot knives

clem snide – denver

conor oberst and the mystic valley band – cabbage town

the donkeys – east coast raga

elvis costello – goon squad

miles davis – ’round midnight

modest mouse – lounge
