taking lives and making drones: a tribetwelve collective mix

listen / download

thought I might as well make it a twofer day on TribeTwelve mixes

Art by Sarah Larue, of askthedrunkslendycrew. The account appears to be inactive; Sarah, if you don’t want me to use this art let me know and I’ll take it down.

this may look familiar to you; it is a re-doing of this older Collective mix.  I like this version a lot better. I never did get around to posting the old version on 8tracks anyway.

1. The Children / Yeasayer (the collective)

We are children and we’ll give you trouble

if we don’t like what you’re doing and we think that it is wrong.

Now we’re satisfied, but when we’re not…

We are taking lives and making drones.

2. Devil’s Eyes / Creech Holler (the observer)

You’ve got the devil’s eyes/I can see you every time 

3. Clint Eastwood / Gorillaz (firebrand)

So I’m gonna stick around  and be a mentor

Bust a few rhymes so motherfuckers

Remember where the thought is

I brought all this so you can survive when law is lawless

Feelings, sensations that you thought were dead

No squealing, remember that it’s all in your head

4. Masks / Meredith Monk (swain)

5. The National Anthem / Radiohead (deadhead)

everyone, everyone around here/everyone has got the fear

it’s holding on

6. Lofticries / Purity Ring (cursor)

Beat weighty tests with lofty cries
Lofty cries with trembling thighs
Weepy chests with weepy sighs
Weepy skin with trembling thighs

7. Burn - Up / Siouxsie and the Banshees (firebrand)

A crumpled future in your fist

The killing streak ascends sun kissed

And the fire starter from within

pokes out from fever blistered grin

8. Cold Sweat / YVETTE (mr scars)

9. Primary / The Cure

the further we go and older we grow

the more we know, the less we show

10. A Good Man is Hard to Find / Sufjan Stevens (observer

once, in the backyard, she was once like me, she was once like me

twice, when I killed them, they were once at peace, they were once like me

hold to your gun, man, and put off all the beast

11. We Suck Young Blood (Your Time Is Up) / Radiohead (the collective)

Are you sweet?

Are you fresh?

Are you strung up by the wrists?

We want the young blood

12. We Can’t Be Stopped / Ratatat (the collective)
