Musicophilia Blog (by that guy who did '1981') Updates Thread

Just a warehouse for mixes new and old, really, rather than letting them float off into total oblivion. Might turn into something more, might wither on the vine. But I hope to update at least once every two weeks with a mix/compilation, new or old. The old 1981 mixes (possibly updated, maybe not) will be amongst them, for any of the people to whom I was never able to provide a physical copy.

I doubt I'll be doing many full album uploads, as there are people sharing far more amazing and long-lost things than I could possibly find: so at the very least, I'm providing links to some much better and important and useful blogs. When I post, I'll try to keep the blabbing to a minimum, and hope that you'll trust my recommendation enough to let the music do the talking. Content could be just about anything, but I imagine I'll tend to focus on post-punk, various facets of the 70s, early electronic/experimental stuff, heavily layered mixes, library sounds, the usual weirdo geek stuff but hopefully with a few surprises even for hardened fellow addicts like yourselves.

awesome. i was lucky enough to get a copy of 1981 and i will definitely follow your blog.

Andrew-- will you pass this along to all those guys, tell them to say hi sometime? I'd love to get you or any of them to guest- or co-blog, if you were interested. I was down there a couple weeks ago for the first time in almost two years, but I didn't get to see anybody but family and business associates.

Cutty, Tyler-- I'll try to make it worth your while!

Sweet, thanks.

New mix up, probably the only one I'd say I'm "proud of" of all the mixes I've ever made, but it's a little weird. . . very heavily mixed. . .

Those 1971-themed "Le Tour du Monde" mixes are spectacular, and much appreciated. I'm a subscriber...

mike t-diva, Wednesday, 8 October 2008 08:38 (eight years ago) Permalink

Mr. Justen-- The photo is from an 1900s jail that I helped document for HABS prior to its demolition. As for coveting the '81 set--well, starting today, I'm posting some of the original mixes on the blog, with some new "discs" to follow.

Mike-- Thanks, very glad you like it. 'Volume 7' (the first set I made in the 'Le Tour du Monde' series) should be up in the next few days--features some of my absolute top beats and bass lines of all time.

i really love the "heart" disc in the 81 set -- not as many new discoveries there for me, but it might be my fave in terms of overall flow.

These looks really cool, will keep an eye out.

sonderangerbot, Saturday, 11 October 2008 16:10 (eight years ago) Permalink

Tyler-- I was thinking either the 'Heart,' 'Cassette' or 'Convertible' one next. . .

Sonderangerbot-- let me know what you think.

Got a series of short mixes of very short songs forthcoming. 'Miniatures : Post-Punk,' three volumes, featuring all tracks two minutes long or shorter. Still working out the flow, but I like the cover art.

Soundslike, Wednesday, 15 October 2008 14:52 (eight years ago) Permalink

I've had a couple questions from people asking where I bought the 'Le Tour du Monde' comps, or where vinyl copies can be purchased, or who originally compiled them. So it seems that I've been unclear--anything on my blog (unless noted as a guest blog or full album) is a mix made by me. I'll quote my reply to one such question from the blog:

I didn’t mean to cause confusion with the ‘Le Tour du Monde’ thing–just couldn’t think of a title for the mixes I was making, or concoct a theme other than that they were generally international in selection and from a few certain years. So I made up the ‘Le Tour du Monde’ thing as a flexible catch-all, and the verisimilitude just sprang from there, for fun–a chance to write over-the-top liner notes (original and reissue variety) and have a few in-jokes, make funny old covers.

I hoped it was pretty evident that the covers/"liner notes" were homages to a period and style of effusive, exuberant marketing and design; or at least that they were very faux, as my Photoshop skills are minimal at best. But maybe I'm too much of a geek in finding such stuff funny. I hope I haven't offended anyone, and that the music is no less enjoyable if not actually compiled in 1971 or 1973. The release dates and albums of extraction are accurate, to the best of my knowledge/the information in my collection.

Soundslike, Thursday, 16 October 2008 20:02 (eight years ago) Permalink

Well you had me fooled. I thought they were genuine 70s cheese. I really like them a lot though, perfect for long car journeys, I've found.

nate woolls, Thursday, 16 October 2008 20:19 (eight years ago) Permalink

ha, yeah, those would be some miraculously weird comps if they were real! the designs are fun, though. i certainly wouldn't mind having vinyl copies in my collection ...

tylerw, Thursday, 16 October 2008 22:05 (eight years ago) Permalink

I think this is all downright funny now that I understand it! Gotta love that cute record shop sticker on the front, too.

Bimble, Thursday, 16 October 2008 22:24 (eight years ago) Permalink

soundslike, you really are an awesome kinda dude. thank you!

easy, lionel (grimly fiendish), Friday, 17 October 2008 11:47 (eight years ago) Permalink

Wow, thanks, Mr. Fiendish.

Nate--I enjoyed testing them on long walks/train rides/bus rides, glad to hear they work well for long drives, too. I'd hoped that at 90 minutes but in four sections, they could be treated as a long mix, or as short mixes to mix and match or listen individually.

Tyler--yeah, I wish I had real vinyl copies. Do you think the ring wear is too much/too bad? Again, weak Photoshop skills. . .

Does anyone mind much that I present them as long mp3s, rather than individual tracks? Somehow it feels slightly more ethical or quasi-legal or something, but also I really like the idea of listening to a mix as a sum-total. In the case of the six-tracks-at-a-time type mixes (like the 'Collide/Coalesce' mix) it'd be impossible to break them up except fairly arbitrarily. . .

Soundslike, Friday, 17 October 2008 17:47 (eight years ago) Permalink

Oh--and hope you like what you find, Mr. Keller. Don't miss the '1981' mixes, if you're into post-punk.

i did like it! someone recommended me the homosexuals a while back and i had forgotten.

to answer your question, i would definitely rather you split the tracks up. it would be much easier to keep track of what's what. however, it's your site, do what you want.

Kevin Keller, Friday, 17 October 2008 21:44 (eight years ago) Permalink

haha, the ring wear is great!
i don't mind the tracks being grouped together, but certainly wouldn't complain if they were split up. still it is kind of nice to take the mixes as a whole, which grouping the tracks together forces me to do.

tylerw, Friday, 17 October 2008 22:03 (eight years ago) Permalink

Does anyone mind much that I present them as long mp3s, rather than individual tracks?

the only reason i'd maybe like them split is because i'm spectacularly anal about my stats. i don't think that's as important as you getting the exact effect you're going for, though -- you must do what you think suits the mix in question.

easy, lionel (grimly fiendish), Friday, 17 October 2008 23:40 (eight years ago) Permalink

I like them together. I'd be more tempted to cherry pick if they were separated.

☑ (Pleasant Plains), Saturday, 18 October 2008 01:37 (eight years ago) Permalink

Well, just for the record, I never would have seen what's there as being "ring wear" without being told that's what it's supposed to be. But having said that, it still contributes to the overall art of the sleeve.

I'll be downloading the post-punk mix shortly. Would prefer to have tracks split up, probably.

Yep, I enjoyed the post-punk mix as well. Short, sweet and quick. Good fun. There's a few things there I hadn't heard before that sounded pretty good, too.

Roasted Ghost (Bimble Is Still More Goth Than You), Saturday, 18 October 2008 17:42 (eight years ago) Permalink

Thanks, everyone. I appreciate the feedback and response.

Regarding splitting tracks versus having single mixes or "sides"--I think for now what I'll do is continue to post old mixes (including the '1981' stuff) as separate files, when that's how I mixed them; and for all more recent mixes and new ones, I'll post them as single files/sides. The way I've tended to make comps/mixes since the '1981' stuff is with multi-track software, so that I can more easily balance sound, control the flow/segues, overlap tracks, etc. Most mp3 players (software or hardware) don't do gapless playback still, right? So when mixes are intended to have tight flow or segues, I find the gaps off-putting. Plus, I do like the idea of encouraging people to listen to the mix as a sum-total, like back in the days of cassette mixes at least, instead of just contributing more random tracks to hard drives (unless that's the stated goal). Does that seem reasonable?

I was going to wait on posting more of the post-punk 'Miniatures' mixes, but since people seem to enjoy them, I'll put another one up tonight if I can get my computer to stay turned on long enough to make the files and upload, having some real technical difficulties. I hope to have another 'Le Tour du Monde' mix up in the next week; and I'll probably throw another '1981' mix out there, too.

Thanks again!

Soundslike, Sunday, 19 October 2008 02:26 (eight years ago) Permalink

itunes does gapless playback. fwiw I would prefer individual tracks - at the moment i'm c&ping the track listing into the lyric field for the mix, and having that on-screen while it's playing. I find myself constantly referring back to it to find out what i'm listening to. individually named tracks are just more convenient.

Check it out, let me know what you think with a comment.

And Nate--

I didn't know iTunes did gapless, as I've avoided using it. . . I've been including the tracklist in the comments and lyrics sections of the mp3s id3 tags. For all non-segued mixes, I'll stick with individual tracks; for those that are, I'll stick with compiled mp3(s). Hope that won't turn you or anyone away from listening. Always subject to revision, but right now I just feel better about it that way.

Soundslike, Monday, 20 October 2008 12:05 (eight years ago) Permalink

FWIW, I think that's the best way to go. When I'm listening to your mixes, I just nudge the iPod select button to lyrics. Hey presto: timed track listings!

Great funk mix. I'm new to your blog, but if it's all as good as this new mix, count me in. Thanks for sharing!

mom, Saturday, 31 December 2016 19:05 (eight months ago) Permalink

Thanks guus--I'll always do the downloads (for as long as they last, since some get pulled down for whatever reason), but just wondering if setting up streams for old mixes is worth the time. Young people I talk to seem to stream exclusively, and then only if theres an app (which there is for Mixcloud). But it's probably a rare millenial who is interested in this sort of music...

Soundslike, Saturday, 31 December 2016 22:55 (eight months ago) Permalink

Mom, sorry I missed your comment. Glad you like it! I'd say I put a similarly stupid amount of time and effort into culling, refining, sequencing and "packaging" all the mixes as this one, so you'll hopefully find a lot you like.

As far as my format preference... dealer's choice. I like streaming, so I can listen to it in different places, but I've also downloaded your mixes before. Either way.

Didn't know I had one! Something Wordpress sends out if you subscribe perhaps? It's a bummer for all blogs that the days of Google Reader ended--have to imagine almost everyone's audience became a fraction of what it was. Part of it was that I could make a new mix every few weeks a decade ago, and I'm lucky if I manage two a year now; but it used to be any mix I put up got hundreds or thousands of downloads, now they're lucky to top a hundred or two. Oh well--still makes me happy to put them together, and if a few folks find things that are new to them then I'm content.

It likely won't last long, but thanks to Mediafire doing away with file size restrictions, I've finally shared the *truly* complete '1981' box set, with the never-before-shared-online 'Briefcase' disc.

Thanks guys--hope you're able to download before they inevitably go down--got posted to a website that sent about 3,000 people so far today, so it'll likely get taken down much sooner than expected. It's still fun thinking how so much of this music could be new to somebody--heck, 25 year olds today were 12 when I first put this out! Wish I still had the time to make a so many mixes--but I will say only getting to do a couple a year means I really put them together with a lot of thought.

For whatever reason, I've found recently that if you close mediafire, and click the link again a minute or two later, it will usually then work. That seems to be the case with this one--the file is still up for download.

If they eventually do go down, I'll upload all the mixes to the Mixcloud account so at least they are streamable.

Thanks guys, hope you're digging it. Besides my stated ulterior motive of getting people to buy music they didn't know/have, my other motive with the Musicophilia blog has been trying to parlay the popularity of the post-punk/'1981' stuff into some ears on all the other stuff I love. So if one or two people who never thought they liked 80s funk/boogie/post-disco/R&B/etc. hear these mixes and dig them, I'll be happy ; )
