Kitsune Noir Mixcast / No.023

It’s Friday, it’s almost the weekend, and here’s a delicious Mixcast to wash your cares away. This week’s Mixcast is based around the theme of women’s names. I think most rock stars end up going through break ups or fall desperately in love so women’s names tend to be quite prevalent in music. Not that there are only male singers on this album.

For the album artwork I hunted through my old National Geographic’s and found as many odd images as I could, putting together a diverse collage of woman-ness. The back is my favorite though and I didn’t have to do anything to it, that’s exactly how it was.

Here’s this week’s tracklist:
Jolene by Cake
Griselda by Yo La Tengo
Vanessa From Queens by Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks
Ashley by The Dodos
Tila and I by Harlem
Dear Jennifer by The Clientele
Selfish Jean by Travis
Oh Christine by The Cave Singers
Pretty Mary K by Elliott Smith
Carey by Joni Mitchell
Savannah Smiles by Okkervil River
Anna by Taken by Trees
Shirin by Jens Lekman
Ada by The National
Goodnight Laura by Spoon

    Oh no, you didn’t, I’ve been working on a playlist with exact this theme for the last couple of weeks, great job both tracklist and artwork

  6. Andrea January 29, 2010 at 10:32 AM

    Hey! I’ve also been collecting tracks with names as titles (in general, not just women’s) for a mixtape. There’s quite a lot to pick from, huh?

  7. Víctor January 29, 2010 at 11:21 AM

    Great!! Well… you missed Sheila by Atlas Sound!

  8. satisfied75 January 29, 2010 at 12:26 PM

    Victor is quite right by the way.

  10. Bobby January 29, 2010 at 1:43 PM

    @Victor & Marion – I had it in my list but I didn’t think it fit. Plus I put Atlas Sound on everything I do (or so I feel) so I wanted to mix it up a little : )

  11. Natalie January 29, 2010 at 2:39 PM

    Downloading this for sure.
    Love the vintage feel of the album artwork.

    Great artwork… of course, “Carey” refers to a guy :-) but it’s still a great song.

  13. Bobby January 29, 2010 at 2:53 PM

    @Yachris – Hahahaha… whoops, I had no idea! #fail

  14. Vasco January 29, 2010 at 4:27 PM

    AHH this is my favorite cover yet, where did you find the photo of the woman with the gun?

  15. Vincent January 30, 2010 at 12:41 AM

    What you do is sublime! Tnx! Is there a corporate machine this?

  16. Vincent January 30, 2010 at 12:44 AM

    Behind this I meant..

  17. brad January 30, 2010 at 12:50 AM

    great choices, i love CAKE. they’re so under appreciated. jolene is my favorite track off that first album.

  18. Bobby January 30, 2010 at 1:07 AM

    @Vincent – Nope, it’s just songs that I love, no influence from anyone.

  19. Robert January 30, 2010 at 6:24 AM

    I like the mix. I was also looking for the picture with the woman and the gun. Where did you find it?

  20. Anna Betts January 30, 2010 at 6:48 AM

    Ooh! I’ve just finished a uni project to make a themed CD and packaging, I wish I’d seen this beforehand! I went for chemical elements in the end…

  21. Niek January 30, 2010 at 7:09 AM

    Thanks again Bobby for another wonderful compilation.
    You have honestly changed the way I listen to music nowadays!

    In my version of iTunes 9.0.2 something goes wrong with your artwork however. The artwork of Mixcast no.15 is shown instead of No.23…
    Had this with earlier mixes too.

    Are you familiar with this?

  22. Niek January 30, 2010 at 8:18 AM

    I forget to say this is happening with every mixcast, not with the mixtapes, funny eh?

  23. owen January 30, 2010 at 6:44 PM

    fantastic covers. the back is priceless. could only happen in National Geographic. good job bob!

  24. oti February 1, 2010 at 1:55 AM

    Wonderful mixcast, as usual! And the photo is also great, where do you find it? Who is the photographer?

    Thanks from Madrid!

  25. Amanda February 3, 2010 at 1:40 PM

    the mixcast this week was especially amazing, thank you!
