Jio goes for a more subdued sound in this week's set.
Hey everybody, it's my second shift as host of Division by Zero! How was your Memorial Day weekend? Mine was spent partly hanging with friends, visiting Carleton, and mostly playing Runescape. Also, making this week's playlist.
This week, I decided to go for songs that were more subdued than those I played on my first shift. I mean, even though the second half of last week was lax compared to the first half, I wanted to extend that mood for a whole set. I chose tracks from artists like Burial, Panda Bear, and some more steady-buildup songs from acts like Classixx, Flying Lotus, and Four Tet.
The request for some Kraftwerk was a great addition to the set, too. I mean, who doesn't like Kraftwerk?
Next week, I'll tackle tracks that are more menacing and uneasy (ooh spooky).
Panda Bear - Comfy in Nautica from Person Pitch
Darkside - Freak, Go Home from Psychic
Mylo - Sunworshipper from Destroy Rock and Roll
Stereolab - The Flower Called Nowhere from Dots and Loops
Kraftwerk - The Robots from The Man Machine
- A request, and now I know for sure that we do have this album!
Caribou - Dundas, Ontario from Start Breaking My Heart
Burial - Loner from Kindred EP
Classixx - Rhythm Santa Clara from Hanging Gardens
- Coming to First Ave, supporting Cut Copy, on Jun 25
Flying Lotus - See Thru to U (feat. Erykah Badu) from Until the Quiet Comes
Brian Eno - I'll Come Running from Another Green World
- Whoops, this song was not as electronic as I thought, but maybe the pianos and bells are synth sounds? With Brian Eno, you can't always be sure.
Glass Candy - Computer Love from B/E/A/T/B/O/X
- A really great cover of the Kraftwerk song of the same name.
The Caretaker - Libet's delay from An empty bliss beyond this world
- The whole album is based on samples of old ballroom music. There's some songs in the album where the samples are buried beneath layers of fuzz that actually come from the original LPs/78s.
Stars of the Lid - Apreludes (in C sharp major) from ...and Their Refinement of the Decline
Tim Hecker - Black Refraction from Virgins
The Knife - From Off to On from Silent Shout
Bjork - Unravel from Homogenic
