Nothing You Can Touch | A Kitsune Noir Mixtape


It’s been a little over a month since the last mixtape, so I think you’re due for a new one. There won’t be a Mixcast this week, just this here Mixtape. It’s called Nothing You Can Touch, a Mixtape inspired by John Huges movies from the 80’s… but with a modern slant. Every song on here is from the last few years, if not brand new. But all of the songs definitely have an 80’s feel and vibe to them. Got it?

I was really inspired after seeing The Breakfast Club last month, and realized that I knew quite a few 80’s sounding songs, starting with Phoenix’s Girlfriend. From there I grabbed Bats for Lashes’ Daniel, of course Graveyard Girl by M83, and it just went from there. This is also one of the peppiest mixes I’ve ever made. Most of the time I make more somber Mixtapes (like the next one will be, it’s already ready to go).

Enjoy the mix, enjoy the last few warm days of the year, and I’ll be back with a new Mixcast next week and a new mixtape next month.

Here’s the track listing:

01 I Think I’ll Start A Fire by Faunts
02 Tree Frog by Daestro
03 Graveyard Girl by M83
04 Girlfriend by Phoenix
05 I Don’t Need Love, I’ve Got My Band by The Radio Dept.
06 Daniel by Bat for Lashes
07 Testament by Flying Lotus
08 Tell Me What To Swallow by Crystal Castles
09 Summertime by Girls
10 I Want You! by Peter Bjorn & John
11 Eyes As Candles by Passion Pit
12 Pretty in Pink by The National

    Hey everyone, I’m sorry if the link isn’t working for you. Checking into Mediafire I can see it’s been downloaded a number of times, so keep trying if you get an error message.

    I’ll look into creating a mirror in the meantime. Sorry about the hassle!

  10. Jon Mutch October 2, 2009 at 10:14 AM

    Agreed. Best one yet!

    It’s no secret. This is my absolute favorite mix to-date. I will be dancing in my underwear to these songs all weekend.

    Fantastic, thank you.

  14. Jeff October 2, 2009 at 12:20 PM

    So choice.

  15. Jon Sands October 2, 2009 at 1:21 PM

    What’s the track before 08 Tell Me What To Swallow? It’s definitely not flying lotus, which by the way, is nowhere in this mix. I think your tracklist is a little broken

  16. Jon Sands October 2, 2009 at 1:34 PM

    Ah! Thanks so much Bobby, I only had the original featuring Dolly, was pretty confused. My favorite mix yet by the way!

  17. Adam October 2, 2009 at 2:07 PM

  19. saers October 2, 2009 at 6:54 PM
