Album Description

(I trust my Playlist title cf. isn't lost on everyone ("If 6 Was 3" formerly), otherwise the Grammar Puss in me would go with subjunctive, as in, "If 8 WERE 4." ;)  [See individual track notes and headphones please!] Included here are now four examples of my mix-mashing techniques. The
second and fourth tracks happened from the serendipity of hearing the mashed pieces within close enough time proximity for the earworms to meet and greet. Track #3 was a surprise birthday gift for my Finn-friend Hunaja, where I'm doing my own arrangement and performances of bits and pieces of the two mashed compositions. SOURCES: Don't Dust Up Our Love: Don't Renege on Our Love by Richard & Linda Thompson plus Dust by Parquet Courts Downton Files: X-Files theme by Mark Snow plus Downton Abbey theme by John Lunn. (God Only Knows) You Make Me Feel: God Only Knows by Brian Wilson & Tony Asher plus (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Carole King & Gerry Goffin. Rogue World: Rogue River Suite theme by François Tétaz plus the performance of Roland Orzabal's (Tears for Fears) Mad World by Gary Jules.



Track Info

October 18, 2016: (Headphones! :) Serendipity strikes again. These two tracks came up one after the other in my major .mp3 shuffle program, and the similarities were immediately apparent. Not just the key, but also the overall tone, the shambling rhythm and especially the non-verbal groans that punctuate each artist's piece. Getting the drums to match up perfectly is always the #1 issue when there are unique and interesting drum parts featured prominently in both songs, so there are still some rough spots in the end result here. But I think the dueling "Moan" Osborne and Tom "Wails" section toward the end is delicious, as well as how the separate instrumental parts fit the other piece like a glove in so many places.Anyway, hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did putting it together, and please check out each artist's tracks separately.
