    Nuggets 213 – C + W – 9 

    Nuggets 213 - Country +  Western 9

    Been down south again. I played this mix for my sister as we drove around rounding up family members for a birthday party. When The Flying Burrito Brothers came on I told her the name of the band. That’s the name of a restaurant isn’t it she said? She was right, we drove by the restaurant a few minutes later.

    Many of these tunes are live recordings. I was impressed that Grooveshark had all the tracks I wanted in the versions I wanted, particularly the demo version of the VU track.

    Nuggets 205 – Chug, chug, chug 

    Nuggets 205 - chug chug chug - can you see the surfers?

    Another road trip to Hamilton. I had new music from A.A. Bondy, Sennen, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, La Sera, Beach House and others to listen to. I caught on to a 2/4 chugging vibe among some of the tracks, and hence this chug, chug mix.

    Huntlly Power Station

    I had coffee by the banks of the mighty Waikato, and then holed up in a hotel all day mediating….

    Sennen - Lost Harmony

    Heading down country I listened to Sennen and their new album, Lost Harmony. They are English (Norwich) and make serious guitar driven music; a touch shoegaze, a touch folk with some Can influences. I enjoyed most of the tracks. Wonderful.

    A.A. Bondy - Believers

    Heading back I listened to A.A. Bondy and his latest album – Believers. I enjoyed his first album, American Hearts, and I was looking forward to this 2011 release. It’s an excellent album with the guitar and voice up front, clean sounding but not over produced. Kinda alt-country late night’ish with an indie sensibility and krautrocky tendencies. I don’t often like a whole album, but here I enjoyed every track. Perfect for my trip home in the dark.

    Some more tracks (live)

    Brian Jonestown Massacre - Aufheben

    Aufheben from the Brian Jonestown Massacre was an unexpected treat. I haven’t listened to a whole album from this band before. I enjoyed the documentary, DIG!, covering their rivalry with The Dandy Warhols where they were portrayed as total wasters – particularly main man Anton Newcombe. I approached the album with no expectations and enjoyed every track. Whimsical psychedelia.

    All going well, a playable track listing follows…

    Nuggets 83 – Evening 

    Another unused number staves off the 200th mix. This mix has an after dark theme with a melancholy vibe. Bear with me while I get all the tunes up (Grooveshark is being uncooperative) and think of what to put on the cover.
