Hello All.

Welcome to the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape:_Nidos (Vol. 2)

___=

As we are at the end of the year I guess I should provide a list of what were my favorite records released in 2017 (as opposed to including some of my favorite music I purchased this year, which would be older stuff like records by Duke Ellington, Gil Evans, Miles Davis, Tom Waits, and the amazing two disc Judee Sill compilation Abracadabra: The Asylum Years). So here straight off the top of my head (and I’m sure I’ll be forgetting something):

Pure Comedy by Father John Misty

Modern Kosmology by Jane Weaver

Double Roses by Karen Elson

I Tell A Fly by Benjamin Clementine

Masseduction by St. Vincent

La Saboteuse by Yazz Ahmed

No Shape by Perfume Genius

Interplanetary Class Classics by The Moonlandingz

Foreverywhere by StevenSteven

Triplicate by Bob Dylan

Add Violence [EP] by Nine Inch Nails

The most disappointing record of the year was without a doubt Colors by Beck (I am an enormous fan of his work), which—in it’s dull compression, soundtrack-to-a-hip-new-laptop-operating-system-commercial flavor—really comes across to me as some sort of Qliphoth to St. Vincent’s wonderful use of manic pop in Masseduction.

By far my favorite movie of the year (and one of the best I’ve ever seen) was Jordan Peele‘s Get Out:

Oh, and the greatest television show of all time also happened to be released in 2017: Mark Frost‘s and David Lynch‘s Twin Peaks: The Return

Also below you’ll find a concluded list of things I read (or re-read) so far since January of this year, 2017. You’ll find the more recent things towards the bottom.  I am just about done reading an absolutely stunning collection of poetry, My Dinner With Ron Jeremy by Kendra DeColo (published by Jack White’s Third Man Books).

As I just started Alan Moore‘s massive novel Jerusalem (over 600,000 words long and over 1200 pages, and what David M. Higgins called in the Los Angeles Review of Books “a glorious mythology of loss”) I don’t believe there could be any room to add to the 2017 list.

Speaking of Lit, 2017 is the year I discovered that Angela Carter just might be the greatest writer I’ve ever read! However, these works listed here are all one’s that I truly enjoyed and/or loved (there’s a lot of great children’s books as I am both a father and a children’s librarian). I highly recommend them all!

The Donor
–Judee Sill
I’ll chase ’em to the bottom
Till I’ve finally caught ’em
Dreams fall deep
Where voices come a-chimin’
Moanin’ and a-rhymin’
Warning me
Their words are ringin’ and a-whinin’
Hear ’em weep
Songs from so deep
While I’m sleepin’
Seep in
Sweepin’ over me
Still the echo’s achin’
“Leave us not forsaken”
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, eleison
Eleison, eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
So sad, and so true
That even shadows come
And hum the requiem
O waters of the moon
Your vapors swirls and swoon
Your wake is wide
And sorrow’s like an arrow
Shootin’ straight and narrow
Aimin’ true, it’s sting goes
Reachin’ to the marrow
Silence cried
Now songs from so deep
While I’m sleepin’
Seep in…
Sweepin’ over me
Still the echo’s achin’
“Leave us not forsaken”
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, eleison
Eleison, eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison
So sad, and so true
That even shadows come
And hum the requiem

Hello All.

Welcome to the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape: (Dominion) Swords, Cups, and Other Accouterments. I must say this and the prior ([A Crush Of Curtains]:) have been my favorite mixtapes I’ve created in awhile, in terms of feeling like I achieved a mood and texture I envisioned at the get-go. I think it’s pretty clear at this point that I don’t often use the platform of this blog to make party-mixes, but more likely create MixTapes to listen to when alone, such as driving, walking, or when attempting some form of artistic expression. I listened to today’s mix while driving through a beautiful but torrential downpour and I found it to be a great compliment. I hope you dig it and find a use for it too.

___=

Also below you’ll find an updated list of things I read (or re-read) so far since January of this year, 2017. You’ll find the more recent things towards the bottom. These are works that I truly enjoyed and/or loved. I highly recommend them all!

A.M.O.P. PRESENTS:- DEVENDRA BANHART: SEMILLAS EN EL ALIENTO

____________———-___=

—  –   ————-______________ ->

Hello All.

Welcome to A Mouthful Of Pennies! Here you’ve got Semillas en el Aliento, a two volume retrospective platter of the music work of one of my favorite modern artists: Devendra Banhart.

I created these mixes a little while back as a bit of an introduction for a buddy of mine just prior to the release of Banhart’s ninth studio album, the delicate oddity, Ape In Pink Marble, which was released on September 23, 2016 on Nonesuch Records. I think these two mixes are a great compliment to the hopefully long rolling days of summer we have ahead of us. Tracked chronologically, I’ve listed where my selections come from so that you can easily purchase a record you think you’d enjoy, although I highly recommend you get all his work as there’s just so much good stuff not featured here. Also you should pick up his latest, Ape In Pink Marble, which again is not represented here at all.

_

Well I do hope you dig it all and if you dig the mix then please feel free to pass & post it along; if you dig Devendra Banhart then please support him and go out and pick up some of his stuff(and definitely try to catch him live as his shows are always quite special). Oh, If you dig the blog overall there’s always the “FOLLOW BLOG VIA EMAIL” button somewhere down at the bottom

Not only is this the thirteenth volume but it is also the very last in the series. So there you now have a total of seventeen hours and seventeen minutes of music! It all together makes a great soundtrack if you have to spend a day painting the blades of grass in your backyard or something of that nature. I do hope you dig it!

Also below you’ll find an updated list of things I read (or re-read) so far since January of this year. You’ll find the more recent things towards the bottom. These are works that I truly enjoyed and/or loved. I highly recommend them all!

I do want to make special mention of two books here that I believe are real healthy for your sense of reality: Tom Waits on Tom Waits: Interviews and Encounters by Paul Maher Jr. (Editor), and The Complete Stories of Leonora Carrington, with its incredible, twisted beauties like The Happy Corpse Story and How To Start A Pharmaceuticals Business!
