"Human beings are simple, predictable clichés. Broken hearts, betrayal, it's all been done a billion times before. The problem is, every time still hurts like the first. And if you're lucky enough to recover, you can be sure that just as you finish filling in all the cracks in your life, the next one is starting to open." (George, 'Dead Like Me')
Music: Ryan Adams, Vance Joy, Brandon Flowers

a mix for wolves roaming the woods and hunters trying to kill them, for towns so small you could suffocate from living in them; for liminal spaces in the woods outside of town and the cosmic creatures that come crawling through, for fucking your worst enemy, for the electric buzz you can feel in your teeth; for ritual sacrifice and finding out your loved ones are monsters.

who swears and cheats at billiards on Sunday.
He is the one who reaches up your skirt,
pulls out the prayers your were saving for someday,
and lights them on fire with his tongue.

May playlist, dedicated to the Nelsonville Music Festival in beautiful Southeastern Ohio...four days of blissful rock n roll and the best people ever.
In 1989, the Beastie Boys released their second album, "Paul's Boutique", a sonic collage of a whopping 105 song samples put together by the Boys and their producers, the Dust Brothers. It eventually became what many consider to be one of the greatest albums ever released.
Sadly, the world lost Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch on May 4, 2012. As a tribute, let's revisit the epic "Paul's Boutique" and mix up a healthy selection of some of the original songs later sampled on this masterpiece.
Clinically proven songs to knock you out, fast. Okay, so maybe not "clinically" proven but they work. If you're not asleep by the end of this hour long mix, you may be a robot.

It's that time of the year again: twelve months full of exciting releases and stunning sounds come to a close, a perfect opportunity to look back and do what us geeks love to do most... a list. Sure enough, it will be a spotty selection at best, as there's always a personal favorite which didn't make the cut - still, we think we managed to compile a nicely balanced podcast featuring obvious bangers alongside secret weapons and other surprising outings from our distribution labels.

"When I left the control room, everybody was moved, was excited, most of the people were crying. People are more, yeah, they have difficulties to believe that it happened, so, but we are very busy, the control team is busy in checking the situation, stabilising the situation, so they won't have much time to think of the historical moment - they have to work," head of ESA operations Paolo Ferri told journalists after the landing."Signs continue coming, of course the scientific experiments will start a bit later, but the measurements for the instruments which were already active - and they are already active now - are coming," Mr Ferri added.

Unlike Beethoven's Sixth, which leaves little doubt as to their subject with babbling brooks, singing birds and summer storms, the musical images arise in Vaughan Williams indirect. The horror, the demands Walton, was the participation in the First World War for Vaughan Williams. Only in 1938, 16 years after the completion of the work, the composer revealed the great influence that his war experiences had taken in France on his Third Symphony. The declared pacifist had there, voluntarily served with already 42 years as a paramedic. Powerful images »Vaughan Williams' music conjures up images vast landscape," says Norrington during a rehearsal break last June. "But it is the scenery of the First World War, a landscape, have suffered infinitely in the human. The music is not programmatic, but very vivid - and she has four slow movements. At first this may sound boring, but it is incredibly touching. "His imagination helps Norrington going to keep the tension to work out a development in four slow movements. How four seasons, so he told them act on it. Starting with a serene summer, followed by a plaintive trumpet player in the fall, probably blows to his own funeral - incidentally, the only real quote that brought the composer from the war. The third set represents Norrington for the winter, clear and white, the horror graciously be obstructions. The fourth then the spring, which always is otherwise a fresh start, but here only a bleak Call to nowhere -.
