    Doomed...all doomed

    Yes, this thread is DOOMED.



    Here's the deal.

    1) Pick NO MORE than 2 songs released in the first four months of 2012 (that would be JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH, or APRIL) that are your pick for best song(s) from this time.

    2) Upload the song(s) and provide link to forum or to PM

    3) If unable to do #2, then name the song and beg someone else to do #2

    4) I will collect and compilationize them. Depending on number, might just be a mini, but I will accumulate all for a year ender.

    5) I will repeat every 4 months through 2012.

    It might be a single.

    Hard to pick just two. And these two would both change on another day, so I'm not calling them the two best, just the two I wanna hear right now.

    A little challenge to sharpen the mind. I figure they at least made some sort of cut. :-)

    Formats: I think I'm good with all of them. flac is great. Lossless is my assumption

    WMA lossless is a bit of a problem for me so I prefer not that one...but I can manage it, I just lose the tags.

    Well, I'd love to contribute to this project... except for three small problems.

    1) My media computer suddenly won't boot, and appears to be deader than the hooker in my trunk
    2) I'm a notorious tech-spazz who can't be trusted to upload big files in the first place
    3) I have terrible taste in music

    But if I were contributing two songs, they would probably be "Orpheo Looks Back" by Andrew Bird and "Temporary" by White Rabbits. I'm loving both of those right now.

    I've got Orpheo Looks Back covered and will add it to the pool.

    Anyone help with Temporary?

    The only thing that I have that I can readily upload in FLAC from this year is the new Brute Heart 7"... the rest of my stuff is on vinyl and I don't have the setup to rip from it (well, that one is too, but it came with a download code).

    Here's the link to the full 7", don't abuse it! If you like it, buy the vinyl for $7ppd from M'Lady's.

    hope this works...haven't actually done a MediaFire link-type thing before...
    One is from Julia Holter's most excellent Ekstasis album
    here
    and one from the locally super-hyped Polica that I think is a great release that should get them some broader love
    here

    It appears we've reached critical mass at 11 tracks. Are there any I should be waiting for? Most all came in lossless except for

    Julie Holter ~ Marienbad
    Polica ~ Dark Star

    If anyone can bump up those, that would be great. Dark Star would especially benefit.

    I can't make up my mind, and besides, I have no idea how to send something lossless, so you can all breathe a sigh of relief, fp won't be adding any of his crappy selections to your mix.

    Here's another one from me, though it's another old sounding type thing, and somewhat related to the other one I supplied. In this case, a revitalized Dr. John teaming with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, who took on a similar production role to what Jack White has done a few times now. I almost supplied a track at the same time as the Jack White, but the CD really sounds crap, compressed to the max. Really disappointing because the music is so good. But the LP completely saves it, huge difference, so below is Getaway in 16-44.1 flac from the LP (the Jack White track was also from vinyl, but in that case the CD was mastered very well so not much difference).

    Pretty serious differences there. I've been curious about that new Dr. John. I always like his sounds but a little goes a long way and a lot just seems too much. Anyway, Got It.

    I'll see what I can do to sequence this collection out. I've shuffled it through my ears a few times and it seems to not really matter what order the the tracks come. Check back Friday, I think, for the first of three 2012 installments.

    This is the kind of thing that, generally, "makes my year" (in music)...{rubs palms together in anticipation}
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    RR2012 - Act I

    ***Files Fixed and Links updated 3:30pm, May 16. If you downloaded before this, you're missing the Jack White track. I'd apologize, but you get what you pay for***

    Doomed backward is de mood, de mood is pleasantly surprised.

    Admittedly, I had really low expectations here. I was hoping at best to come up with a full disk maybe by yearís end but expecting a couple pity uploads of dubious worth. At least, I thought, I might find an album to pursue. Despite the evident long odds, RRs emerged from hiding and ta dah! We have a full compilation album.

    Musically, I donít know quite what I was expecting. It wasnít this. There are some interesting sounds and twisty tunes. A lot of stuff had me flashing back to the late 70ís and early eighties and rope-a-doped me along before putting the modern spin on it. Other things had hallmarks of stuff I donít personally like; I expected crash-and-burn but they pulled out and delivered a real absorbing listen. Thereís a lot of reward hiding in these songs.

    I think Iíve strung them together into a pretty dang good 54 minute listen. Itís quite possible that RR will deliver an outstanding 3-CD wrap up of 2012. Something, Iím very much looking forward to.

    Hereís the playbill for ACT I of this 3-part experiment. Continued experiments in hyperlinks take you to metacritic reviews or artist pages.

    01. Temporary ~ White Rabbits ( Mr. MidFi )
    02. Kill for Love ~ Chromatics ( nobody )
    03. In Limbo ~ Brute Heart ( Rae )
    04. Dark Star ~ PoliÁa ( johnnyhambone )
    05. Marienbad ~ Julia Holter ( johnnyhambone )
    06. Love Interruption ~ Jack White ( Davey )
    07. Only for You ~ The Heartless Bastards ( noddin0ff )
    08. Are You Gonna Waste My Time? ~ Zeus ( Slosh )
    09. Fever ~ Brute Heart ( Rae )
    10. Bodies in the Dunes ~ Pop. 1280 ( nobody )
    11. Orpheo Looks Back ~ Andrew Bird ( Mr. MidFi )
    12. Getaway ~ Dr. John ( Davey )
    13. Northern Soul ~ Cardinal ( Slosh )
    14. Well, You Can Do it Without Me ~ Father John Misty ( noddin0ff )


    The footnotes:
    FLAC files are provided as a 4-part download (3x100MB + ~70MB). If you have problems figuring it out, post or PM me and weíll resolve it. 2 files are not from lossless sources, but theyíve been converted to FLAC anyway.

    FLAC01 (100MB)
    FLAC02 (100MB)
    FLAC03 (100MB)
    FLAC04 (66MB)


    MP3 files are 256kbkps vbr. The 2 aforementioned lossy files were converted from FLAC to MP3. I know most donít care, but... full-disclosure.
    MP3 (84MB)

    I take it you aren't a Jack White fan, eh?



    Looks good, pretty diverse mix. I was holding off listening to all the posted tracks until you strung it all together, but I'll download today.

    Thanks!
