A Mix for the Holidays

So this isn’t really a mix. It’s more like a mix tape — minus the tape. We’ll call it curating.

The story: odopod is having a holiday party next week. I was asked by one of the partners, Jacquie Moss, to put together about an hour of music for the dinner-portion of the event. I asked her if there were any specific qualities I should look out for. Her reply:

Conversational. Upbeat, but low-key. Ambient. Interesting. Lovely.

So, here’s my stab at meeting that request: Download Mike Creighton’s Odopod Holiday Mix.

And for those of you that are curious about the playlist, here it is:

  1. Khonnor – Rooms
  2. DNTEL – (This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan [Barbara Morgenstern Remix]
  3. Herrmann & Kleine – Shuttle
  4. múm – awake on a train
  5. Solvent – When the Sun Hits
  6. Air – Mike Mills
  7. Sondre Lerche – Stupid Memory
  8. John C. Kelley – surfs up
  9. Broken Social Scene – Looks Just Like the Sun
  10. Modest Mouse – Gravity Rides Everything
  11. Matmos – For the Trees
  12. Cornelius – Brazil
  13. Boards of Canada – Satellite Anthem Icarus
  14. Skanfrom – Here She Comes
  15. Herrmann & Kleine – Leaving You Behind
  16. Thom Yorke – Atoms For Peace
  17. Ulrich Schnauss – Wherever You Are

Did I do okay?

    Mmmm, yes, I think so.

    Perhaps a little bit too lovely for my taste, but definitely great in the background-but-interesting side.
