Percy Dovetonsils presents Revenge and Remorse (The Guilty Alibi)

Noisey Drone Doom

Sounds like: The final compilation of noise/drone/doom et al tracks all mashed together. This is the third mix I did in 2006 for a Hipinion Mix Exchange. The title for this one was from Police Squad, and the artwork as always is by John Stezaker. This one is good, but I think the last ten minutes could have been better.

Spring forward!

Category: Indie rock and pop

Sounds like: Pop this in when you need a bounce toward that springtime season.

This is a pretty straightforward spring-themed mix, with a touch of summer as well. Starts off on the rock side and then shifts in a more pop direction about halfway through (some of my mixes still reflect that old cassette division between sides). A schoolteacher friend said that she put this mix on recently and all the kids started dancing around. What better endorsement can you get?
