Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 06 / Trk 08 / Honey Bee (Let’s Fly to Mars) / Grinderman

And now back to our regularly scheduled chaos.

That wonderfully frenzied organ and wordplay from the Monks led me to Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds. Right around 2003, when they started upending their methods and recording whole albums in a week, they also started incorporating an organ into their palette. When they shifted into their Grinderman project in 2007, that raw, instinctive recording style loosened up their sound and pushed the organ to the fore. Grinderman is full of deranged, debauched tracks like this one, which pulse with squalling organs, feedback bursts, ribald lyrics, and pounding drums. It sounds alive, like the combination of raw thoughts and throbbing heartbeats—like the best garage rock.

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.
