Urban Outfitters are still doing their music compilations. Just checked in the other day and saw that they are on #7 now! Think I missed three or four in between. LSTN #7 features The Dodos, The Depreciation Guild, Free Energy and two tracks we hyped on Indie Music Filter Volume 6 (Calypso Gold by Princeton and Dominos by The Big Pink). As well, LSTN #7 features one of my favorite songs of the year (that I tried to get for IMF Vol 6), Feel It All Around by Washed Out. E-mailed a few times to get clearance for the track for our mix, but no response. Guess we’ll need to team up with a chic lifestyle retailer before we start going after the harder to get tracks. Hope Depot presents Indie Music Filter Volume 7?
Gotta work on that.
I had someone ask me about my Indie Music Filter mix compilations yesterday. Seems as if its been quite a while since I’ve put one together. Well, I’ve never done a summer mix, and I must admit I was inspired to start thinking about this since seeing/hearing the Urban Outfitters mix. I promise, as soon as I make it through NXNE in one piece, I’ll get to it.
Here’s a song that could work for it. By a band called Bikini (the name fits with the summer theme). Aaron Aujla and Johnny Penn are the producers behind the moniker, Penn’s hanging out with Wolf Parade at McGill, Aujla’s living in Queen West in Toronto painting pictures of Red Bull cans.
Check out this one. Here’s I Remember Being Young. Head to their myspace page to download a version of Feist’s 1234.
