The Listening Club - 10th May 2015

Hello y'all

Hope all is good despite this and that.... commiserations to my fellow country peoples, who despite their best intentions have to suffer the same shower of cunts back in government again to do further damage to the country. Biased, moi? Just a soup├žon, possibly....

In happy #lc land, no such problems last week, as @emmaprice cheered herself and those around her with Garbage's 1995 debut album, bringing on varying degrees of swooning nostalgia across the board. Many thanks to Emma for the pick and for flipping the frisbee across to @akx...

"Yay, it's nice to be back in the hot seat!

So I find myself listening to more and more mixes instead of albums
these days, so I suppose it's only fitting that I end up submitting
more of them for play too. Last time (yes, it's all coming back to me
now, ahem) I believe I played RAC's White Light Mix -- tonight's mix is decidedly different in mood, but the same reason for picking this applies: it's a mix I keep coming back to over and over again. It's from a DJ (in a loose sense of the word) who mostly does ambient mixes (_excellent_ ambient mixes), and I'd say you can definitely hear that in here too.

Oh, actually, come to think of it, this definitely also has ties to @faberfedor's Mark Twain soundtrack pick of yore... But that's enough spoilers!

Drinking club suggestion: good bourbon or a cold beer (I believe wine would do too), preferably enjoyed while sitting on a sunset-painted dusty porch.

Love,

Aarni"
