Second mix for my coworker. Much more introspective, experimental. Contains my all time favorite Regina Spektor, Smiths, and Patti Smith songs. I'm new to Oneida but I like what I've heard so far. This mix was almost overwhelmed by the Scott Walker, but I think the Ravel helped transition it.

The title comes from track seven, by Iva Bittovß. She's a Romani Czech woman who has a very unique sound influenced by gypsy folk music, Czech music, and experimental musicians like Fred Frith. I did my best to find a masculine way to say "strange young lady," and through my google searching I decided to use "divny človeče" because it sounded cool. Anyway, who's going to correct me?

The cover is a sufi mystic/whirling dervish because I like them and I thought it would make a neat cover. The cd itself is printed with a cool whirlwind design. Anyway, download it and leave a note if you like it.

really like your cover and notes, and not just that... the music! I've got some old Scott Walker CDs and the few newest ones, but I'm missing "Tilt," which I'm now convinced I must own. transition from that to Maurice Ravel was very nice. also dug the Faithless, Cocteau Twins, Brian Eno tracks, and it was good to hear some Natacha Atlas on here. glad to see you back on AotM; you were gone a long time.

I've downloaded this a couple of days ago and just got round to listening it. I am not a big fan of either the Faithless or Regina Spektor but this mix flows really well if you ask me. And it's been a while since I'd heard a residents tune. And that goes for cocteau twins as well. Thanks for the link, really appreciated.

And I've only just realised it's you who's left such nice comments on my mix. Thanks! Kudos for being a linux/free software supporter too. And, of course, the mix. Great mix.
