Brian’s Monday Playlist #1 – Slow Club, Mechanical Bride, Laura Marling, Diane Cluck and more

Ladies and Gentlemen, may we introduce you to Lord Brian Wilson II (Brian for short), FFS’s resident mixtape-making owl.

Brian was asked by the lovely folk over at Trash Aesthetics to put together a selection of his favourite tracks for them, which we think he did with aplomb.

In fact, we at FFS like this whole mixtape-making business so much that we’re going to get Brian to make you one every week to brighten up your Mondays. And, being a clever old owl, he’ll have some words of wisdom for you to help get your week off to a good start.

So without further ado, let us introduce Brian’s Salad and Twilight mix:

1. Slow Club – It Doesn’t Have to be Beautiful
2. Dear Reader – Great White Bear
3. Alessi’s Ark – Simple Man
4. Bishop Allen – The Lion and the Teacup
5. Laura Marling – Rambling Man
6. Al Lewis & Sarah Howells – Make A Little Room
7. Jeffrey Lewis – Roll Bus Roll
8. Diane Cluck – Easy to be Around
9. The Decemberists – The Rake Song
10. Butcher Boy – Carve a Pattern
11. Drever McCusker Woomble – into the blue
12. Grant Campbell – Expecting Great Things
13. Mechanical Bride – The Final

You can download it here. Also check out Anika‘s mixtape on the same page. Brian highly recommends it.

Brian’s says: “Never eat a mouse whilst listening to Au Revoir Simone. It will make you too melancholy”


Brian’s made his playlist – or something like it – a list over on Amazon. So if you want these lovely artists to have some money to buy bread and soup and what not head over there to buy it.
