Turntable Kitchen’s ‘Fall Dinner’ Mix

Welcome to another meal-themed Turntable Kitchen mixtape (you may remember our Breakfast Mix from a couple of months back). For this one, Kasey asked me to compile “five or six songs” to accompany her Fall Dinner Menu post. Obviously I couldn’t stop with only six tracks, so you’re getting a full fledged mix.

My goal was to compile a list that could accompany both your time working in the kitchen and the dinner itself. With that in mind, the mix is intended to have a certain ebb and flow that might correspond to the mood of a warm and comforting fall meal. That said, I also recognize that your time in the kitchen might vary depending on what you’re cooking and your time around the table might vary from person to person. That’s OK. The main idea is that it starts relatively energetically, slowly builds, drops a little in tempo, and then finds a nice groove before finishing things out on a very chill note. You can loop it and let it start all over. Enjoy!

    something is a little wonky with tracks 12-18 in the zip file. personal problem?

  • Nicole

    I had the same problem!

  • ellcoolj

    i love me some Tennis, Turtle Giant, NO and I have been lovingJ.R. Jones all day from your other post. I can’t wait to hear the rest of this mix!
    And ditto on tracks 12+ (They came in at 4kb each???)

  • Matthew

    Whoa! Massive fail. I’m not sure what happened but the tracks were definitely messed up. I’ve re-uploaded and corrected the problem. Everything should play fine now.

  • Matthew

    Thanks Elissa! We’ve corrected the problem.

  • Matthew

    Thanks Nicole. There was some problem with my original files. It’s been fixed.

  • ellcoolj

    I’m loading the new version as we speak. It was just about a year ago that I remember wandering through the airport alone (on the way to meet my family) which is a rarity listening to NO and White Denim thanks to your mixes. Next week I get my solo flight time again and am looking forward to listening to this new mix.
    and the JR Jones is righteous.

    In other news, have you heard Dr. Devito… great vibe coming off of them.

  • Matthew

    That is so awesome! I’m glad to know you’ve been listening along for so long and that I’ve been able to introduce you to some great tunes. I haven’t checked out Dr. Devito yet though. Thanks for returning the favor!

  • elissa

  • Mr. Ropin’ Rodeo Nate

    Great mix – this one really does a great job of sustaining a mood throughout!

  • Sam

    Hi there! Loving the mix as per. I think there is still a problem with track 11, Monster Rally & RUMTUM. Only 18″ long for me

  • Matthew

    Thanks Sam! I just re-upped that file. Should work fine now.
