Mini Mixtape #14

I could do a Valentine’s Day theme/anti-theme, but screw it, shuffle week! Click the song title to listen.

Liz Phair – Fuck and Run (1993)
So deadpan it’s hilarious, so straight-played it isn’t.

Deerhunter – He Would Have Laughed (2010)
Bradford Cox’s tribute to the late Jay Reatard. The end of the song was one of the great “What the hell?” moments of 2010.

Avril Lavinge – Girlfriend (2007)
It’s shuffle for a reason, folks. This song shouldn’t be as obnoxiously catchy as it is, but well, it is.

The Strokes – Under Cover of Darkness (2011)
Just released yesterday. Snappy instrumentation, but Julian sings a little too high. Still though, the rest of the album could sound like this and not suck. And it’s The Strokes so that might happen.
