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).
