Friday Mix-Up, Mixed Bag Edition

by Ricardo Gutierrez

By now, my constant gushing over the Ghostly International record label is teetering on becoming trite. I promise, I accept no bribes or kickbacks of any sort. I met the owner, once, at a Matthew Dear show, but he didn't let me into any secret club or show me any coded Ghostly handshakes. In the interest of full disclosure, I'd love to work on their music, but that is because I enjoy working on music that I like to listen to. Who wouldn't?

All of my praise is due to actually enjoying their product and having respect for the way they've built a solid international fanclub in their respective genres despite, or maybe because of, their origins in Michigan.

It also helps that I was put onto them separately by my buds Neil Drumming and Art Kimskii. I like the cut of both of their musical jibs and they happened to both be in attendance at the aforementioned show.

The mixes between Organized Konfusion and Steve Spacek are for Neil and Art, because I think they'd both appreciate those. The entire mix is brought to you by the letter G, the number 10, and bands with "the" in their name, but that's just because I've had Jim Henson on the mind lately (Jason Segal, make me laugh please).

Tracklisting:

Lost And Found - Phoenix
It's A Mistake - Men At Work
Let's Organize - Organized Konfusion
Good To Be Alive - Matthew Dear
The Hills - Steve Spacek
Me & The Skirts - The Features
Short Change Hero - The Heavy
I Like It - The Emotions
African Herbman - Bob Marley
Take Me To The Mardi Gras - Bob James
