G&B September 2010 Free Mix Tape

You may wonder why there’s two tracks by Flying Machines on this month’s free mix tape.  That’s because I happen to be old-school about mix tapes.  I want the songs to flow from one to the next, to fit together like a puzzle, and even though I tested out lots of songs from some of the newest albums that have come out from the likes of Brian Wilson, the Klaxons, Ray LaMontagne, and EELS, I eventually cut those because they just didn’t fit, and these songs by Flying Machines did.  And since I’m leading this month’s mix tape with a song as painstakingly depressing as “Bed Space”, I thought they might help pep it up! Oh wait, the Flying Machines are kind of depressing, too…but ever since “Hey Ya!”, my love affair with sad songs disguised as upbeat pop tunes lives on. Enjoy!
