Everyday is Like Sunday, Except for Blue Monday and Ruby Tuesday, and...Well, Friday I'm in Love: Weekly Mix #47


After a small break, here's both the first post of 2009 and the first weekly mix of 2009. Because the last mix was a New Year's firecracker, this week's compilation is more about catching up on sleep after the holidays and the partying (okay, maybe I didn't exactly fill my holidays with partying, but I definitely stayed up late watching my A Bit of Fry and Laurie box set for several nights). This mix can be the antidote for your credit hangover headaches, or hangover headaches of the more conventional kind. Or this mix can act as a cure for those of you out there who are insomniacs. Although, when the temperature dips to -34 Celsius (which it is at the time of writing this), sometimes all you want to do is slow your heart rate to that of one comatose and hibernate until spring.

This mix takes in several mellow, dream-inducing genres like shoegaze, twee and ambient, and it encompasses the tinkling music box sounds that begin this compilation, including M83, Emilie Simon and soundtrack work from both Yann Tiersen and Trevor Jones; the light acoustics from Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, Brett Anderson and Lanterns on the Lake; the soothing, twee pop of The Brunettes, The Bridal Shop and Camera Obscura; and the semi-aquatic murmurs of The Daysleepers, Japan, and Mazzy Star. This one is called Lullaby. Sweet dreams.
