Monday Mixtapes #4 // 15 April 2013 // The Flame of Forever

Alex Metric & Charli XCX – End of the World
We open with a mish mash of synth wave and then clashes into a brutal alchemy of electro house. For everything this song is, I want to stare straight into artificial lights and pretend the sun’s not going to rise tomorrow.

Alex Metric – Scandalism
Get in your car, drive down a long empty road and feel every deep breeze that cuts through as start dust sparkle through your lacerations.

Matthew Dear – Earthforms
This is what an evil bass sounds like. Running across the water as if a flame that tickles over the oil it slicks on. Matthew Dear pairs his vocals flawlessly as well.

Mux Mool – Palace Chalice
A montage of every day night life intersped with streetlights. Mux Mool creates mood boards as if they were chemistry on silver nitrate.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Mermaids
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds write and perform absolutely perfect music. I dare you to stare straight into the abyss of this song and come out unscathed.

Gorillaz – Stylo (Alex Metric Remix)
These visuals absolutely trip me out.

A Minute With Mux

A Minute With Mux

Damn, I love Mux Mool (Brian Lindgren). He says some pretty cool shit, so if you’ve got a minute to spare, ramble on children.

Produced by James P. Morse

// TRANSCRIPT //

My name is Mux Mool and that’s M-U-X-M-O-O-L

And I make music.

I’m from Brooklyn.. right now. Although I’m not from anywhere.

Originally from Minnesota, small town of about sixty people. Mom had an ice cream store.

ANY THOUGHTS ON THE INTERNET?

I would not be anywhere without the Internet.

There’s promoting yourself for free, people being able to get anything.. for free. Kids today they don’t, the don’t wanna buy CD, the don’t wanna buy albums, they want to get it.. get it on their iPods and y’know.. *shrugs* You gotta be there! They move so quick, y’know?

I love that.

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

In terms of gear use, you gotta go for cheap. Like.. I got.. I got a hand-me-down MPD.. and.. y’know, a laptop. Like an old-ass laptop.

And I make all this shit with that.. like you don’t need anything. Really.. it’s all in your head, you don’t need any gear whatsoever. You can just like.. make up beats with your mouth.

That’s really cheap.

DO YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH INSURANCE?

No. Haha! Does anyone have health insurance?
