Turntable Kitchen :: the February 2011 Mix

February may be the shortest month of the year, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have enough love for two Turntable Kitchen mixtapes!  Yup, two new TK mixes comin’ at ya.  In a few weeks I’ll unveil the Turntable Kitchen :: Cover Mix that we prepared for our now sold out dinner party that we are co-hosting with graffEats and FoxconSox for Noise Pop 2011, but not until after the dinners.  In the meantime you can enjoy these sixteen slightly-faded, neon-lit and gently scuffed tunes – straight from my turntable to yours.  Fun fact: the oldest tracks on here are over forty years old and the newest is less than a few weeks. I think you’ll find some things that you’ll enjoy.

    Thanks for the mix Matt! I can’t wait to check out the Cover Mix.

    I like your “Fun Fact”. I’ve been listening to a random mix of 20-40 year old music and new stuff that I’ve been grabbing from sites like Aquarium Drunkard and your little slice of music blog heaven. Sometimes your ears just really crave that contrast.

    Thanks again!

    I am in love with what you are doing… great food great music! Wow. Wish I’d thought of it first! This mix is awesome… I am liking it as morning music. Thank you for sharing!

    Brian – I feel the same way. I definitely frequently get the itch for something “different” musically. Sometimes that means listening to a little 60’s Thai shadow rock, some Motown, some 90’s hip hop or even 09 chillwave 😉 Both the Underdogs and Tempters tracks on here are oldies. Surprisingly, the Earth Girl Helen Brown song is contemporary.

    Michelle – thanks so much for the kind words! And, I think you are right: this mix makes a great morning album. It more or less came together during several morning commutes to work.

    “Thai shadow rock”??

    What the heck is that? You gotta hook me up with some samples.

    Yeah I’ve been digging that Earth Girl Helen Brown track for a few weeks now after I grabbed it from another site. Another song that I keep forgetting is a recent release is The World(Is going up in flames) by Charles Bradley. I think he’s a relative unknown who just released an album on a Daptone Records affiliated label. The song is almost as amazing as the album cover…
