Has no-one received my tape? It was called "Ooh, it's a mixtape".

I'll be quite sad if it's gone astray, I was quite pleased with it.

"A Mixtape For Your Listening Pleasure - AKA Glice"

ok, i'm finished with side 1.

first off, the tape came without a booklet leaving the case transparent, both the case and the tape itself were decorated with figures drawn with liquid paper (white pen corrector), each figure colored later; this technique reminds me of the tapes or other artistic things girls did back when i was in 6th/7th grade. the figures seem almost african, it's like eurodance african decoration.

Side 1:

Track One: An organ starts, then it plays a riff similar to Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe" but with polyrhythmic drums, the voice is kinda Lydon-esque even thought i doubt it's PIL. Pretty cool peaks and valleys throughout the song.

Track Two: Hip-hop beat with a G-Funk style Moog riff; R&B-like girl singer, i think it's Madonna, Secret-era, but it doesn't sound exactly like Madonna (although i'm pretty sure i hear "Secret" in the background right after this song, so it might be her). It kinda makes me nostalgic, reminds me of 6th grade and when everyone i knew listened to MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice (i was into Queen, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Iron Maiden, etc.) and, above all, the soundtrack to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. The song is awesome, very well written and everything, i like Madonna but i haven't really delved too deeply into her stuff since her stuff is kinda hit or miss...if it's not Madonna then i'd love to know who sings this.

Track Three: Starts with some sort of carnival music in the background then leaves a picked string instrument with guitar qualities after being joined by a sitar-like instrument, i could go on and say it's a guitar and sitar duo but i won't go there since the "guitar" has oriental cadences to the sound...on closer listen i'm pretty sure it's an oud, i love the oud i want to buy me one, i've gone to those Libanese and Syrian restaurants with live entertainment and it usually features someone playing the oud, i've heard some mean riffs played on that!...a young cute belly dancer flirted with me once when i was out with my mom and aunts in family reunion thing but that's another story; very meditative, delicate and lenghty, tricky track since the other instrument (or perhaps there's a third instrument in there?) has some banjo qualities to it and it's confusing me, perhaps it's dueling ouds?. When i listen to music like this, i'm more into drones and heavy atmospheres more than minimalistic picking, but it's a nice change; i love that, since it's only two instruments without any backgroud or rhythm, the hiss of the tape becomes a lovely coat and part of the piece.

Track Four: Sounds like the Blood Brothers meet System Of A Down, i remember i read on a thread that another of your tapes had s similar song, perhaps it's the same? The singer dudes have a bit more of a Nick Cave voice but still have the Eastern Europe singing voice SOAD have, the screams are very post San Diego hardcore and some of the riffs and structures are downright Fugazi-esque, i'd be incredibly surprised if this band wasn't from the US. The track is good, very schizophrenic, sounds like something i would have loved ten years ago when i was getting into the Deftones and stuff like that, there's radio feeds and tapes going at certain sections; it does ramble a little and goes for too long though.

Track Five: Static and some kind of AM radio heavily muffled narration transmissions, some humming and the sound of a pause button going off constantly, some beeping going and stuff adding little by little, it reminds me a bit of Pengo.

Side 2:

Track 1: A symphonic orchestral piece, sort of reminds me of biblical movies, very grand and dramatic. I like biblical movie scores.

Track 2: Vintage country, lonesome singing and harmonizing choruses, spare instrumentations. It's awesome!

Track 3: Bagpipes, or at least they seem like bagpipes, a friend of mine used to live upstairs from a guy who used to play this all the time, she has two dogs and, well, the dogs would get freaked out whenever the guy started wailing on the 'pipes...if i played her this, she'd hate me; i like backpipes, i love their sound, the droning, even how they look.

Track 4: Dead pan voice? simple repetitive guitar riff? pounding drums? it's the Fall of course! an awesome band, goes without saying, i'm almost sure i know the song but can't quite put my finger on it...i don't have that many Fall albums, been meaning to buy them instead of downloading so i'm quite behind on my Fall listening...i do have a couple of Fall concert bootlegs

Track 5: Lo-fi stuff, strumming guitars with a broken sounding-like slide one on top, then singing; sounds a bit like Polvo if they had been mentored by Sebadoh.

Track 6: Unmistakable!! that's Low!! i love that band so much! Alan and Mimi harmonize beautifully over a bit of delicate drum pounding and a tremolo-effected guitar, calling out for god. It's trascendent prettyness that goes up and down; the heavy flanging instrument at the end sounds so heavy. Is it the Spiritualized cover they did?

Track 7: Weird beats, female singing samples, a rapper that reminds me a little of Twista, a female rapper. The beat doesn't flow well, choppy editing, and it's pretty electronic, sounds very interesting,

Track 8: Sounds like a bad cassette audience recording, rumbling, some swaying notes and someone half singing, occassional screams, synths. Might be Suicide, i like the atmosphere.

Track 9: Something that sounds like a song from a movie from the 40's (or a Van Dyke Parks song) but with a very high, vibrating leading instrument where you expect singing, bowed strings and such give it a balladesque feeling. It's kinda creepy but i like it a lot!

Track 10: Roy Orbison - It's Over; my mom spotted the song when i first heard the tape, lovely song, his voice makes me feel really nostalgic but not in a bad way.



thanks glice!

Side 2

Gustav Holst - Mars (Neeeerr NeeeerrRRRR NEERRRRRRRRRRRRR....)

I'm more for Fred Lowery but Ronnie Ronalde is a classy choice nonetheless.In fact whistlers in general should be heard more.

I think we can agree that whistlers should be heard more. Lowery is, indeed ace. It's such a neglected world. I only wish I had enough whistling records to warrant a whole mix tape of it.

I'm really looking forward to whoever gets my next tape. The last two were made by just picking up records from the recently listened to pile, hence overlaps. I've actually concentrated on an idea this time. And it's a good 'un.

i have that monks album but haven't given them a proper listen; those widget evil guys sure sound american, i meant spacemen 3 cover, i got kinda confused there; i might have guessed it was a grime song, i wasn't very impressed with the dizzy rascal songs i've heard so far, this one is ok. the thing i liked about ronnie ronalde's song was the backing but the whistling is creepy as fuck so it's all good...i should have recognized tg.

thanks again man!!!

Yeah, Widget do sound very American. They're really heavily into US hardcore (and also Refused). Lovely chaps.

The Monks song is off of 5 Upstart Americans rather than Black Monk Time. I don't know if you can still get it, but it's equally as good.
