So I didn't get around to posting a summer music mix. But after buying and listening to some new stuff, I got inspired to do an end of summer/autumn beginning kind of mix.

Summer's End, Autumn's Beginning

Track listing:

1. Morning Fog (interlude), Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi
2. Before, Washed Out
3. Autumn Leaves, Bill Evans
4. New York is a Woman, Suzanne Vega
5. Problem Queen, Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi (Norah Jones vocal)
6. I'm in Love with the City, God Help the Girl
7. Memory Divine, Francoise Hardy
8. Market Girl, Headlights (Album Leaf Remix)
9. Moses, Elisabeth Fraser
10. Season's Trees, Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi (Norah Jones vocal)
11. Far Away, Washed Out
12. Honey Mine, Korallreven (Memoryhouse Remix)
13. The Windmills of Your Mind, Dusty Springfield
14. Corcovado, Sarah Vaughan
15. Soft, Washed Out
16. Blue in Green (Take 1), Bill Evans

Notes on a Mix:

1. Lots of tracks from Danger Mouse's Rome and Washed Out's Within and Without, probably my two favorite albums of the season. Rome is a fun concept album, where the artist envisions a spaghetti western soundtrack. To my amazement it makes Norah Jones palatable; she doesn't sound as if she's ready to hit the snooze button. Washed Out is very shimmery; it's like listening to burnished gold.

2. Francoise Hardy has been making music for about 30-40 years now. Pretty impressive. "Memory Divine" is off one of her recent albums.

3. Elisabeth Fraser, however, has not been as prolific. Elisabeth, please make more music! I'm not asking for the Cocteau Twins to reunite, honest! I want to hear you.

4. Thanks to [ profile] fireflygirl for the Korallreven track.

Happy listening and let me know if there are any problems with the damn thing.
