Kitsune Noir Mixcast / No.005

It’s midnight here on the West Coast, so it should be Friday everywhere else in the world. This weeks Mixcast is a little different. I was walking to get a coffee the other night when I started listening to The Magnetic Fields’ Take Ecstasy With Me and started thinking about Neon Indian’s Should Have Done Acid With You at the same time. I also just finished Augesten Burough’s Dry, so all together I thought I’d make a mix about vices.

We all have vices and addictions, though some are more dangerous than others and some people hide them well, but I think it’s something we as humans are prone to having. So this is my interpretation of some of those things through some songs that I think are pretty rad

I hope you all enjoy it, let me know your thoughts!

Here’s this week’s tracklist:
Vice Rag by AA Bondy
Take Ecstasy With Me by The Magnetic Fields
I Went To Sleep by The Beach Boys
Should Have Taken Acid With You by Neon Indian
Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth by The Dandy Warhols
Handshake Drugs by Wilco
Heroin by The Velvet Underground
Hang Over by The Album Leaf
Coat Check Dream Song by Bright Eyes
Epitaph by Badly Drawn Boy

    Fun mix. You could have had ‘I’ve never been high’ bythe superlative Sparks.

    Behave yourself this weekend. Cheers

    Hi there, searching for some Radiohead wallpapers for my desktop and, suddenly, found this website and let me tell you, you are a kick ass designer (and I mean it in the good way), just downloaded this mixtape and ready to ear it. Thanks and congrats for the awesome site.
    P.D.: sorry for the bad english, I’m just another mexican looking for cool stuff on the web, including yours.

    Gorgeous songs, Bobby! Very thanks for making our lives more pleasant. I’d have also included “Jugband Blues” by Syd Barrett… Beautiful cover. Did you take that picture?
