Good news for all of you who enjoyed the first volume of Rash Records’ Home compilation!
Volume 2 has arrived and like its predecessor the compilation is free of charge, although you can pay for it if you’d like to contribute to the making of the next one.
Home Volume 2 contains sixteen tracks from sixteen different artists of various genres (or as its tagline says: “compilation loveliness from a wonderful bunch of artists”) and is available to download right here.
I had a crummy weekend and decided that the best remedy – besides eating lots of chocolate – would be to make a mix full of hope, self-pity and plain nonsense. Enjoy!
01 Fitz & The Tantrums – “Moneygrabber”
02 Fences – “Girls With Accents”
03 Gregory and The Hawke – “For The Best”
04 Gypsy & The Cat – “Jona Vark”
05 Fotos – “Angst”
06 Former Ghosts – “Chin Up”
07 Lovelikefire – “So Be It”
08 Atomic Tom – “Take Me Out”
09 Nina Kinert – “Moonwalker”
10 Starfucker – “Medicine (Copy Remix)”
11 Polkadot Cadaver – “Chloroform Girl”
12 Florrie – “Left Too Late”
13 Dark Dark Dark – “Heavy Heart”
14 ///^◊^\\\ – “Are You Laura Palmer?”
15 Sam Cooke – “A Change Is Gonna Come”
~ Pretty Lights – “Still Night” ~
Smooth chill/trip-hop (or ‘electro hip hop soul’, whatever frankly) track that should be used on some flashy runway. Not that I know anything about fashion, but I bet it would be cool. From the album Glowing In The Darkest Night which – except for this song – didn’t leave much of an impression on me.
~ He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister – “How’m I Gonna Get Back Home” ~
Infectious folk-country that I can’t help but bop along to. Puts you in a good mood. The self-titled EP has it’s subdued moments as well though so it’s more to them than just honky-dory stuff. Actually, this song isn’t that honky-dory at all, I just suck at describing this kind of music.
~ YOU! – “Spring Is Over” ~
Sharp indie-rock with plenty of new wave thrown in there. The whole self-titled album is good but this is one of the stand out tracks, I think. The only real complaint I have is that many of the tracks are far too short!
~ Agnes Obel – “Riverside” ~
Feeling indifferent? Heart turned to stone? Give Agnes Obel’s beautiful piano-woven pop a go and you should start feeling at least something again. Lovely vocals and an equally lovely atmosphere by this Danish singer-songwriter. From the highly recommended album Philharmonics.
~ Dhana – “Not Enough” ~
Nice pop track by Taxi Doll‘s frontwoman who’s now exploring a solo career with the EP Confessions of Lily Rouge. The drawling way she sings “way” in the chorus can seem a bit silly at first but give it a chance to grow on you. The EP is pretty good too, sort of Goldfrapp-light.
