Comment:

This is just my usual mix with which I keep track of my most excessively listened to tracks of the previous month (October edition), so apologies for the fact that there's some overlap with previous mixes. When I first started making these monthly mixes, I decided to choose the songs to be included regardless of how well they flow with the rest of it, which always makes for some interesting problems when deciding on the track order. Much to my joy, for the first time ever, the greatest difficulty this time was not what to do with the more experimental tracks, but rather with the most straightforward indie rock songs (Pernice Brothers & Nothing Painted Blue) - I originally had a different way of kicking this mix off in mind, but it fell through as these two songs would have completely ruined the flow anywhere else.

The Feldman piece is essentially a placeholder for the entire "All Piano" boxset - it's not nearly my favourite track on the set, but I failed to come up with a convincing way of fitting "For Bunita Marcus" in its full 77-minute glory on an 80-minute mix CD (nor was I heartless enough to cut it into pieces), so I just chose one of my favourites of the shorter pieces instead. The Willard Grant Conspiracy song is also a sort of placeholder - I didn't listen to the song that much, but I was completely blown away by the live version I got to see, so I thought it should be on there.
Title by Christine Fellows.

Well now, I'm not going to name favourites here because I'll be here all night if I did. Really great stuff. Now if only we could get that Mr Whitman chap to tone down his ostentatious song titles...
