Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 02 / Trk 07 / Clean Coloured Wire / Engineers

I suppose this post is more of a response to Epp’s Primal Scream track, which bears the sonic imprint of Kevin Shields, shoegazer extraordinaire, and a man who builds fallout shelters from walls of sound. True, I’ve never been super-into My Bloody Valentine, and prefer Shields’ work as a collaborator instead of mythic guru. But his big idea had an widespread influence on music—that the vocal was simply not any more important than the other layers. I hear a little of it in Robb’s Deerhunter track, with its constant plinking piano and fuzzy guitars. Though I liked their use of the double-tracked vocal too.

This Engineers track made me want to introduce the language of shoegazing into this mix. We’ve seen so much human essence, from Pere Ubu and the Slits and Deerhunter and all the rest, that I wanted to drop in something almost mechanical.

About the NEIMT

Every couple of days, one of the NEIMT authors will post a song that is in some way a reaction to the previous song posted by another author. Every 15 songs will be packaged up with cover art and presented for download as a complete mix. The only rule is that no artist can appear more than once in the same volume.

Previous Incarnations of the NEIMT

You can still see the old mixes at neimtarchive.blogspot.com. Some of the old download links might still even work.

About Copyright

We freely admit that this blog is probably a violation of artistic copyright law. We put together these mix "tapes" as way to share great music in a way that encourages artist support and utilizes grassroots promotion by purposefully violating those copyrights. We would like to imagine that no artist in their right mind would oppose such altruistic intentions despite its bureaucratic insubordinance.
