Mix Tape

We’ve met some great music fans these past six months or so since Reichenbach Falls came out. Many of them have come to us Ravens with their minds and arms open to dig into what completely freaks us out and turns us on. So here it is, a Mixtape of the Ravens’ favorite hits curated by yours truly.

Crystal Castles – 16-tell-me-what-to-swallow Brit saw this band with Health last month. I love the vocals at the end.

Sharon Jones – 01-100-days-100-nights I think we all secretly want to be in her backing band.

Prince – 05-darling-nikki Prince is undeniably one of the best American songwriters. The last 30 seconds of this song get me hot and bothered.

Crystal Castles – 01-untrust-us

Nocarsgo – quest-to-canada Asher loves this guy. So will you.

Genghis Tron “Arms” We saw this band at SXSW. I think Hamilton can outplay anyone on guitar.

Alan Lomax Field Recordings 02-no-more-my-lawd, and The Osborne Brothers 01-ruby Listen to both these songs with the lights out and the volume up. Your brain will melt.

Velvet Underground & Nico – 04-venus-in-furs

T Rex – Cosmic Dancer – This song lives on Mike’s iPod. I always request it.

Basia Bulat Asher really likes this folk singer. She recorded at the Hotel2Tango right around the same time as us.

Beck – 03-lazy-flies Nora sweats Beck, and with good cause. He’s a genius.
Camper Van Beethoven – Take the Skinheads Bowling Avery grew up listening to this band. I thought it would make a good closer for the mix.
