Six Month Stickies # 16
September 01, 2015
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.
Every Other Freckle
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.
