Brian’s Mixtape #23: Bring in the new

Brian at home
Some of our more dedicated readers might be wondering what the eff is going on with our Brian.  He’s become somewhat lackadaisical about his playlist-composing duties lately, and we suspect he might be, well, having a hoot elsewhere.  If anyone spots him around town doing anything that seems even slightly irresponsible, please contact lynn[@] or helen[@] and we’ll be after him with a net and a pillowcase.

Eager to prove that he isn’t misbehaving and thusly leaving no time for his weighty responsibilities, our owly companion has come up with a lovely selection of ‘songs that are new’.  These are all, he assures us, tracks from albums released since the start of 2010.  So bask in the brand-spanking-bright-as-a-button-shiny-newness of it all, and try to have faith in Brian.  It’s all any of us can do.

  1. Eels – The Beginning
  2. Adam Green – Cigarette Burns Forever
  3. Erland and the Carnival – Gentle Gwen
  4. Beach House – Lover of Mine
  5. Midlake – The Courage of Others
  6. Laura Veirs – Wide-Eyed, Legless
  7. Tindersticks – Peanuts
  8. First Aid Kit – A Window Opens
  9. Nick Cave & Warren Ellis – Home
  10. Charlotte Gainsbourg – Le Chat du Cafe des Artistes
  11. Shearwater – Wedding Bells Are Breaking Up That Old Gang of Mine
  12. The Magnetic Fields – Seduced and Abandoned

      Oh, all right then. Uncle Brian’s going to need some donations to the Spotify amnesty fund soon mind, so that we can continue to spread the love and all.
