I usually make myself a new 20 song playlist every month - just a cross section of what's caught my ear and some old favorites to go along with. The only two rules I set myself are that I can't repeat artists within the mix, nor use a track by any artists I used the month before.

For some reason, this month's mix was a wicked chore to finally bring together...and I'm not even completely sold that it works!

I will readily admit that I'm yet another person who has dusted off that Bowie track after seeing INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. Likewise, Pearl Jam and Costello made the cut in honour of the two stellar concerts I saw this month.

Overall, I'm happy with my quiet-to-loud progression, but feel like I leaned too hard on familiar go-to's in the end, even if they are new tracks. Thoughts? Oh well, it is what it is. All I can hope is that September proves more musically fruitful so that next month's mix comes a little bit easier to me. Cheers! - Famous.

Dear Prudence was on my mind when I came home from work yesterday - I'm not sure why - but good call on that one! I can't complain with what I know on this mix - it works really well. I've been noticing that you've been using a few of the new Pearl Jam tracks here and on LJ - just curious what you think of it - the samples I've been sampling it's hard to tell.
