shift: Covers Mix 1 (2011)

I’ve sort of settled into the routine of doing the following mixes during the year: four mixes, one each season, drawn from current listening, plus one mix representing the best tracks from my favorite albums (you youngsters can look that term up), and two mixes of covers I run into during the year.

Here’s the first one of that last set, for 2011. This time, I’m doing something different: I edited the whole thing into one large mp3 file, and the link below should allow you to stream it (assuming I haven’t somehow messed up – it worked on my ‘puter).

So then: shift.

  1. Noah and the Whale “Barracuda” (John Cale)
  2. Sex Beet “Dirty Boots” (Sonic Youth)
  3. Dum Dum Girls ‘There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” (The Smiths)
  4. John Wesley Harding with Fastball “Star” (Stealers Wheel)
  5. Kelly Willis “Success” (Iggy Pop)
  6. Bruce Springsteen “I Want You” (Bob Dylan)
  7. Robyn Hitchcock “Be Here Now” (George Harrison)
  8. The Shins “Strange Powers” (The Magnetic Fields)
