To celebrate the start of the season, and to celebrate my brilliant idea to draft Chris Davis of the Orioles to like, four of my fantasy teams, I bring to you this wonderful mix that has nothing to do with baseball and has everything to do with being songs that I have been listening to a lot recently. Enjoy.

02 Hypocrite in A Hippy Crypt – Freak Me Out
03 Ooga Boogas – It’s A Sign

Feeling some super holiday vibes outside, it’s cold enough to see your own breath at all times, and this Dead Gaze xxxmas jam is somehow making it okay.

mp3: Dead Gaze – Silver Bells


Don’t know why I slept on future Mississippi legend Cole Furlow aka Dead Gaze‘s cut from his new 10″ on Group Tightener, It’s Not Real. Dubbed gonzo-pop by our friends at Weekly Tape Deck, I’m going to have to agree that there is something special about his bizarre and blustery pop songs. I love the way his output has a sublime mix of melancholy and joy. Don’t snooze on this, pick up your copy via Group Tightener.

If fellow Cats Purring/Mississippi cohort Bass Drum of Death resides in GB City, then Dead Gaze inhabits Jam City because this is my fucking JAM right now. If upon first listen, ‘Fishing With Robert‘ doesn’t sweep you away with the alternatingly ecastic and melancholy melody, you can color me shocked. This is some Sunday morning gold soundz, probably will be described as psychy-lofi-reverbed-out but (regardless of how true it is) all you really need to know is that this song RULES. It’s the closing song to their brand new 3-song 7″ which will kick your ears in via the hip French labels Atelier Ciseaux/La Station Radar. (Thnx to Weekly Tape Dudes)
