new tunes

September 23, 2010

. . . . . . . .

photos from a few sundays ago, watching the italian grand prix with italian-themed food & drinks at charlotte and matt’s place. such a fun day. i shot these with 100-speed black and white film (fuji neopan, acros 100), a gift from my friend steph. high contrast, but i like them. i’m still getting the hang of shooting B&W…

. . . . . . . .

today, i’m sharing a mix of autumn tunes. this is a quirky bunch of songs that i’m listening to and enjoying. i hope you do, too.
listen HERE.

track list:
+ true blue (dirty beaches)
+ new york city’s killing me (ray lamontagne and the pariah dogs)
+ day for night (lou doillon)
+ save yourself (sharon van etten)
+ late john garfield blues (les shellys)
+ from the mouth of gabriel (sufjan stevens)
+ your direction (chief)
+ keep it quiet (ra ra riot)
+ love is all (the tallest man on earth)
+ the pact / i’ll be your fever (villagers)

i’m signing off here until next week – have a super weekend.

    Awesome, Brian. I’ve been waiting to see what you’d do with it. And of course, you’ve done magic.

    can’t wait to listen to the new mix.

    I absolutely LOVE your view…I’m hooked! What kind of camera do you use? And do you regularly use any techniques with your camera or software like Photoshop?

    your b/w shots are just so good.
    happy weekend.

    I love the high-contrast – it works especially well on that first one, it looks really special.
    Have a good weekend too!

  16. September 23, 2010 3:18 pm

    Oh I am thrilled you’ve made a new mix. Your music taste, like your photos, is so aesthetically pleasing to me :)

    Dirty Beaches!
    I’m fan!
    thanks for sharing!

    I miss black and white film, medium grade is the best and the slower the shutter speed the better for milky blacks. You’ll enjoy it.

    Your Leila’s Shop had me thinking how lucky you are to be in The States with such a charming neighbourhood cafe – then you said it was in London – Yey, that’s my Sunday morning sorted.

    GREAT playlist. Ray LaMontagne’s new album is perfection.

    Love the black and white. Really beautiful.

    i love the full ashtray picture. there is so much intensity in every single photo.
    tracklist is awesome! save yourself!
    fall can begin!

    the only unfortunate thing about this mix is the limit 8tracks put on how many times i can listen to it consecutively.

  23. September 25, 2010 3:56 am

    oh brian……a little jealous, in a way. you always seem to be having a great time with friends. and i love the b/w photos. thanks for the daily repast……

  24. September 25, 2010 12:35 pm

    your new mix is awesome (especially first two songs, i’m amazed), i’d also add david bowie ~ heroes, it’d fit great
    like someone here wrote, autumn can finally begin, although i used to hate it

    have a nice evening, brian

    I’ve had a great time roaming around your blog! Just had to leave one last comment re black and white. I watched an Alfred Hitchcock film this weekend. Strangers on a Train.
    I was MARVELLING at the b/w cinematography. So much more difficult to do than colour. Composition and light. Discovered that it had been nominated for Academy Award for the cinematography. Worth a watch. Those old film guys were amazing!
