I’ve always wished I knew more about music, and this is part of my Life List project to listen to 1,000 new songs. Right now I’m up to 316, and on Fridays I share some of my new favorites. If you’d like to share some music with me, please send your picks to maggie at mighty girl dot com, and I will listen to them.
This week, we have a host for Friday Mixtape. Please welcome Paul Frankenstein. Paul is a reader who sent me links to a bunch of good music. These are my favorites. Thanks Paul, that was awfully nice:
“Do you love me” by Amanda Jenssen
According to Paul, Amanda is the winner of Swedish Idol.
“Destroy Everything You Touch” by Ladytron
“Idlewild” by Julia Kent
“You’re Not All That (Feat. Jessica Darling)” by The Herbaliser
Paul says The Herbaliser is “an English band that thinks that it’s 1971 and they’ve just been hired to score a series of blaxploitation flicks.”
“Ik wil alleen maar zwemmen” by Spinvis
Paul says this song is about going swimming, though it could be an obscenity-laced, anarchist diatribe for all I know. The Dutch are an angry people.
