Hello All! Hello World!

Well hello there, it’s time for a real  _GYP_ the latest A.M.O.P. Mixtape!

This one features two live Elvis performances as well as two versions of Dylan’s “Went To See The Gypsy” which is one of my favorite songs about Elvis Presley (another being “Tupelo” the 1985 track by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds).

We’ve also got “Camarillo Brillo” by Frank Zappa, which has been stuck in my head for a decade now. There’s also the lovely “Rainy Day” the 1970 track by Susan Christie (produced by John Hill), which seems appropriate considering the weather we’ve been having.

Oh and there’s a tune from Doug Randle’s 1971 LP Songs For The New Industrial State, a strange pop record that really calls to my mind Robert Downey Sr.’s brilliant 1969 film Putney Swope (on my list of top ten films of all time, really can’t recommend it enough).

 

Yeah there’s all this and a whole lot more! So…

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).

–   ————-_______

__________—

Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Seven of the MixTape series: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__(Volume Two here)__(Volume Three here)__(Volume Four here)__(Volume Five here)__(Volume Six here)-

This one features The Afghan Whigs‘ delicious cover of The Wizard of Oz highlight “If I Only Had A Heart“; Keith Richards‘ fantastic cover of Hank Williams‘ “You Win Again“; a burning 1973 cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “Gimme Shelter” done here by Amanda Ambrose; “Lucky” off of Devendra Banhart‘s latest record Ape in Pink Marble; as well as the stunning 2006 tune “Ain’t Talkin’” by Bob Dylan; the 1946 hit by Peggy Lee, “It’s All Over Now“; another beauty by Jane Weaver; and “Happy Phantom” (which contains the fantastic lyric, “And I’ll go wearin’ my naughties like a jewel”) from Tori Amos‘ great 1992 debut, Little Earthquakes. Yes, all this and a whole lot more! So scroll down and press play!

Oh and there’s George Harrison with this beautiful caveat:

Watch out now, take care
Beware of falling swingers
Dropping all around you
The pain that often mingles
In your fingertips
Beware of darkness
Watch out now, take care
Beware of the thoughts that linger
Winding up inside your head
The hopelessness around you
In the dead of night
Beware of sadness
It can hit you
It can hurt you
Make you sore and what is more
That is not what you are here for
Watch out now, take care
Beware of soft shoe shufflers
Dancing down the sidewalks
As each unconscious sufferer
Wanders aimlessly
Beware of Maya
Watch out now, take care
Beware of greedy leaders
They take you where you should not go
While Weeping Atlas Cedars
They just want to grow, grow and grow
Beware of darkness (beware of darkness)

THE DEMISE OF THE MASK (VOL 6)

–   ————-_______

__________—

Hello All.

Welcome to Volume Six of the MixTape series: The Demise Of The Mask. –(Volume One here)__(Volume Two here)__(Volume Three here)__(Volume Four here)__(Volume Five here)-

This one features some fine tunes by the likes of Paul Simon; Childish GambinoPop Levi; (producer/arranger of Chess Records subsidiary label Cadet Records) Richard Evans with his late ’60s studio project The Soulful Strings; something from Paul McCartney‘s side-project with Youth under the moniker of The Fireman; something from MegapussDevendra Banhart‘s 2008 side-project with the wonderfully talented Gregory Rogove, Fabrizio Moretti & Noah Georgeson; and a long groove by one of the greatest groups of all time, Parliament-Funkadelic! Oh and you’ll hear a captivating alternate take of the 2005 song Bob Dylan wrote and recorded for the North Country Soundtrack, “Tell Ol’ Bill” and the mid-’70s track “Mary Long” by Indian psych rock band Atomic Forest. There’s also a triple-play from The Flaming Lips‘ stunning 2009 record, Embryonic. I am particularly fond of the nervous respect given to the power of creativity that is conveyed in the third of these tunes, “Powerless“:

“Honey, you’re just paranoid
“You should do what you enjoy
“No one is ever really powerless”
That’s what she said and she gave me a kiss
“No one is ever really powerless”
Now I think I know what that really is
 –
It only happens if you try
Pain and pleasure both get you high
“No one is ever really powerless”
That’s what she said, now I can’t forget
“No one is ever really powerless”
Now I think I know what that really is

____________—

You’ll hear all this and more so press play and enjoy yourself!
