Six Month Stickies # 16

September 01, 2015

As usual the tracks of music that got stuck in my head in the last six months, in order.* Click image to download a ZIP of the compilation:

Synaptyx – Lawless Streets
Jaunter – Anti-Hero
GUNSHIP – Pink Mist
Fixions – Fogs

I came across this compilation album themed after the music of John Carpenter, made iconic from his films like The Thing, and Escape From New York. Listening to this music, I was shocked by how powerfully transported and nostalgically blissful I became. It brought me back to a time in my life where I was playing Genesis games, watching movies like Aliens and Predator, skateboarding, going to punk/hardcore shows, going to the pizzeria for slices and to play street fighter. If I was still as passionate about music as I once was, I would track down the bands from the compilation and suss them out individually. But for now, I’m content to listen to this mix.

Alt-J

Breezeblocks
Every Other Freckle
Intro

This is the sort of band I would have been thrilled about when I was younger. There is still enough residual interest in this sort of thing to get a few songs stuck in my head.

Tim Carleton & Darrick Deel – Opus No. 1

I got this track stuck in my head after listening to This American Life do an episode about it.
