Fall Mixtape, Vol. 1

October 19, 2009


The weather quickly turned cold and we bypassed normally enjoyable fall weather. As a kid I pictured Indian Summer as a wooden canoe on a lake surrounded by fall foliage. This photo seems to capture that essence I suppose. For me it’s Titanic (“I’m the king of the world!”), meets my dog riding up front.

I’ve rekindled my seasonal love for the Brazilian Girls by digging into their older albums, and this tape’s featured track comes from their self-titled debut:

Lyrics are normally lost on me, but on “Don’t Stop” Sabina Sciubba sings plainly about sex in the least vulgar and most carefree way. They are the kind of lyrics that are so straightforward they look like a joke written down. Songs about doin’ it usually look that way on paper though, this one just does it better than most, with the right amount of sincerity and aplomb.

And now,

Brazilian Girls – Don’t Stop
Yelle – Ce Jeu (TEPR Remix)
Washed Out – New Theory
Florence + The Machine – You Got The Love (The XX Remix)
Chairlift – Darling Nikki
Lucy and Michelle – Special Party Time For Everybody
Discovery – Orange Shirt
