April Fool’s Mix
Mixes // By Hugh / 1 April, 2009
I was going to post this yesterday as a March Madness mix, but as I did not, it is now an April Fool’s Mix. Anyway, I haven’t posted up a mix since last November, and this is a fast and easy way to throw a good variety of music at all you Internet dwellers out there. And remember, if you’ve got some songs to throw my way, e-mail them to me at eitheror.hugh (at) gmail.com. Thanks and enjoy the free tunes! Oh, and if I hear any complaints about the picture, well, I won’t know WHAT to tell you, other than to perhaps invest in some glasses.
This song is so damned upbeat, you will soon be wondering what the hell I’m doing posting it, but with all the less-than-upbeat songs in here, you might need this one. Besides, it’s great, so why not?
Jeff Hanson – If Only I Knew – (MP3, 4.1 MB)
I’ve written about Jeff Hanson a few times before on this blog, and by that I mean at least twice, so hey, third time’s the charm. Assuming this is indeed the third time and not, say, the fourth.
Marissa Nadler – River Of Dirt – (MP3, 6.5 MB)
It should be no secret around here that I am in love with Marissa Nadler, but in case it is, here’s one of my favorite songs from her latest album, Little Hells.
Masonic – Lady Stardust – (MP3, 4.3 MB)
What can be better than a cover of David Bowie? Well, a good cover, I suppose, which is what this is, so enjoy! It’s not quite so crazy as the original, but maybe that’s a good thing.
Samuel Markus – Rosa – (MP3, 4.4 MB)
I don’t know what to say about this song, so I won’t say anything. Outside of this. And that. And… never mind.
The Boy I Used To Be – (TBIUTB EP) – (7 MP3s, 13 MB)
This one’s actually a full EP of tunes from a young lad in Britain who still makes better acoustic folk than most people. The sound quality is lacking (mono, anyone?), but the songs themselves are rather good so I’d really urge you to get it.
