Friday Mixtape #50 - Distant

A breezy jangly all-over-the-place mix this week. It's up and down and in the wind and indecisive about what it wants to be when it grows up. I can certainly relate.

I also should mention that this blog is officially ONE YEAR OLD. Happy birthday to my mixes! Yeah, yeah, I suppose we've got to wait til mix #52, but technically this is mix 51 as way back in August I put up the mix I did for and didn't number it... and I also took one holiday from the mixes... so there you go. I've also noticed certain trends in my listening -which actually shows up in this current mix (80s, Girl groups, Postcard Records, Classixx remixes you get the jist). I'll probably plan something special for mixtape #52...

But back to the current mix: here's hoping those who are distant have the chance to return now that that pesky volcano has stopped his belly rumbles. In fact, so distracted was I by the pleasant tunes, I didn't even notice there were only 9 songs! Oops, forgive me.

Included this week:
1. Eternal Summers - Fall Straight Back
2. Elvis Costello & The Attractions - I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down
3. Orange Juice - Poor Old Soul
4. Chloé - Distant
5. Groove Armada - Paper Romance (Classixx Remix)
6. Human League - The Lebanon
7. Mystery Jets - Flash a Hungry Smile
8. Aztec Camera - Lost Outside The Tunnel (Postcard)
9. Beirut - A Sunday Smile
