Echo :06

Damn. It's been two years since the last Echo Mix. It's not that I've been out of the music loop--in fact, it's been quite the opposite--there's just so much to choose from. But even more, the delay is the result of a little demon that's attached itself to me over…

Not a Good Idea – Part One

[audio mp3="http://www.livelovelisten.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/02-A-Good-Idea.mp3"][/audio] Showing up at the house where a room was for rent, sometime in 1992. Or was in 1993? For some reason I'm having a hard time remembering when this was. I also don't remember the name of the guy(s) I lived with. And it's not because I was…

Arcadia – The Promise

[audio tracks="http://www.livelovelisten.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/107-The-Promise.mp3" images="http://www.livelovelisten.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/107-The-Promise-mp3-image.jpg"][/audio] It was late at night and no, it wasn't too late, because Hastings was still open in the mall. But it was dark, and I was in my Honda Civic. Maybe my engine was idling. I was on my way somewhere, possibly home, after an uneventful day…

Deep (Ocean)

I love it when an album is as balanced and beautiful as its cover. Or should that be the other way around? Sometimes I pick up an album because it's fashionable, or I see it and say, "that's something the college kids are listening to, right?" Sometimes it's a mistake…

Fleetwood Mac – Dreams (Auto Body Remix)

Just a lovely remix of "Dreams" from Austin duo, Tibaut Bowman and Felix Moreno, who call themselves Auto Body. [soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/100216019" params="auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /] It's late, I've just finished a stretch of writing, the end of which was dominated by this tune on repeat. Of course, Fleetwood Mac…

Echo :04

Cripes, what took you so long? I found the Camelot Wheel, that's what took me so long. The Camelot Wheel is a round thingy developed by Mixed in Key that maps out the relationships of musical keys to one another. It's a brilliant little tool that makes it a lot…

Echo :03

Nick Hornby: “A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do. You've got to kick off with a corker, to hold the attention… and then you've got to up it a notch, and you can't have white music and black music together, unless the white music sounds like…
