Kitsune Noir Mixcast / No.040

It’s been quite a while since the last Mixcast, I guess I’ve been trying to refuel myself. It’s nuts to think that I’ve made 40 of these so far, just 12 away from an entire year of Mixcasts. I actually think the little break was good for me. I have a bunch of rad new songs to share and this is honestly one of my favorites in recent memory. There’s brand new stuff from Arcade Fire, Blonde Redhead and The Books as well as some smaller artists like Brothertiger, Twin Sister and Gold Panda.

I also decided to not record myself this week because I’m waiting on my new microphone to come in the mail, then you’ll have to listen to me blab on and on. Enjoy the momentary silence.

It’s also important to note that the images for this week’s Mixcast come from my friend Ed Fladung. Honestly, I don’t remember how I met Ed, but I think it was through my blog and possibly over Twitter. Ed is a fantastic photographer who lives in Mexico, taking really great surf photos and talking about design and websites and all kinds of good stuff. Definitely take a peak at his portfolio and his blog as well.

Here’s this week’s tracklist:
You by Gold Panda
Tell Me Why by M.I.A.
Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) by Arcade Fire
The Passenger by Stars
Silver Sands by Stereolab
Baseball Cards by Wavves
Lady Daydream by Twin Sister
And the World Laughs With You by Flying Lotus
Lovers by Brothertiger
Here Sometimes by Blonde Redhead
Ending of Me by Admiral Radley
Sun Arrow by Candy Claws
Free Translator by The Books

    @José – Glad you like it sir :)

    @Anna – Mine too, it’s pretty dance-y for Arcade Fire.

    Hey Bobby,

    Would love to see this up on Mixcloud! I think we spoke about Soundcloud a while back, but as far as I know Mixcloud won’t charge you for having lots of listeners…

    Love this tracklisting, seems right up my alley. Hope you can check out my mixes:

    Baseball Cards is without a doubt the best song on King Of The Beach, great choice.
