Just found this community totally by accident. Thought I'd join it and offer my list of recommendations...

Pulp: Glory Days
The Alarm: Father To Son
Love: You Set The Scene
Saint Etienne: You're In A Bad Way
Nick Drake: Poor Boy
David Bowie: Across The Universe
The Smiths: Is It Really So Strange?
Air: You Make It Easy

It was a challenge to keep down to 20... If it'll all fit on a cd I'll have to get a burner first anyway, and that is going to be soon. But hey, if there's anything anybody's not heard and wanna hear I can send it over msn or whatever.

Hello everyone,

This is Samantha, I'm new here. I can't say I'm completely anti-emo or anti-"cliche" indie music but viewing the endless tirade of emo/indie bands posted by hipster folks everywhere can get kinda old. I do try to be open-minded and not too "anti"-anything.

Anyways, i'm kind of stuck in a somewhat self-imposed musical rut. I don't go to a lot of shows anymore, and don't really listen to mainstream or college radio anymore either.

Lately i've been listening to mainly my Francoise Hardy mixes, M. Ward or Pinback.

Here's my most recent Francoise Hardy mix that I made,that i'm interested in trading:

1) le sais tu?
2) avant de t'en aller
3) suzanne
4) souvenirs
5) pas gentille
6) ca a rate
7) tout me ramene a toi
8) et meme
9) le maison ou j'ai grandi
10) nous etions amies
11) je changerais d'avis
12) le pour personne
13) tous les garcons et les filles
14) ill est tout pour moi
15) toi, je ne t'oublierai pas
16) non c'est pas
17) ce'est le passe
18) tu n'as qu'un mot à dire
19) on se plaît
20) qui aime-t-il vraiment
21) j'aurais voulu
22) ton meilleur ami
23) tout va bien
24) pourtant tu m'aimes
25) l'amour s'en va
26) pas toujours
27) le temps de l'amour
28) il est parti un jour
29) je pense a lui
30) ce petit coeur
31) j'suis d'accord
32) je t'aime

Francoise's recording career goes back to the early 1960s,so she has quite a repertoire of songs.

I guess i'm looking for a bit of monotonous variety.
Meaning does anyone have a band/artist mix that they can't stop listening to because their music is just that damn good?
ex: mix comprised of say, all Velvet Underground songs or all Bjork songs.
I'm open to whatever type of mix though. Even ones with various college hipster bands.

two mixes [19 Dec 2005|08:04pm]

Last Saturday was the nicest day I have witnessed in quite a while. Sparkling sun on brand new 15-inch snow, and warm, happy feelings all around. I just had to make a mix to commemorate the day.

nice day mix:
kate bush - aerial tal
ani difranco - origami
mirah - pollen
tori amos - the power of orange knickers
regina spektor - us
rilo kiley - my slumbering heart
björk - it's in our hands
ani difranco - 32 flavors
cocorosie - terrible angels
ani difranco - this bouquet
tori amos - taxi ride
rilo kiley - more adventurous
frou frou - shh
tegan & sara - love type thing
rilo kiley - with arms outstretched
kate bush - an architect's dream
tori amos - sleeps with butterflies

Down the rabbit hole.
curiouser and curiouser:
hannah fury - the necklace of marie antoinette
blonde redhead - missile
cocteau twins - aikea-guinea
rasputina - gingerbread coffin
kate bush - the dreaming
björk - mouth's cradle
the birthday massacre - happy birthday
mazzy star - umbilical
tori amos - pandora's aquarium
björk - where is the line
blonde redhead - in particular
cocteau twins - cicely
kate bush - hello earth
rasputina - doomsday averted
cocorosie - by your side

I repeat artists a lot, don't I? Well, I suppose I prefer depth to breadth - I have 13 Ani DiFranco CDs, for example.
