Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 02 / Trk 01 / A Few Hours After This… [demo] / The Cure

I have a real soft spot for Swedish bands, because they seem to treat the Cure and the Jesus and Mary Chain as shapers of music on the level of the Beatles and the Stones. It’s not the gothy, distant Cure though—it’s the happy-poppy Cure that came along after 1985.

So why not go from Caesars back to their musical primordial soup? There were several contenders from the mighty Cure that could’ve fit here, but this outtake from A Head on the Door was both less familiar and flat-out better than the others. As a demo, it feels remarkably complete, with the right mix of scrappy confidence and melodic hope that I was seeking as this mix’s “track 1.”

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.
