Yes, I realize that we’re nearing the middle of August and that summer is almost over — and an early good riddance, I say, to the oppressive Nebraskan heat and humidity — but better late than never when it comes to the latest seasonal mix from Violens. Any mix that contains a mash-up/cover of Slowdive’s “Souvlaki Space Station” alongside tracks from Dead Can Dance and Chapterhouse is worth a listen in my book — and all it will cost you is an e-mail address. Here’s the complete track list:
- Acid Reign (Violens “In The Trees” Mix)
- Never Let You Go (Chairlift — Violens SGIN of Justin Bieber music video)
- It Couldn’t Be Perceived (FUTURES Remixes Violens)
- He Got The Girl (Violens Cover)
- Small Servant (The Long Windows)
- Space Around The Feel Station (feat. Washed Out)
- Another Horizon (Violens version Nite Jewel)
- Another Strike Restrained (Sadguitarius Remixes Violens)
- Anywhere Out of the World (Dead Can Dance)
- June (Unrest)
- Clean Up Crew (Roman Orchids)
- Treasure (Chapterhouse)
- Stay Close (Violens version Delorean)
- Tagebuch Einer Totgeburt (Bethlehem)
- Angbands Schmieden (Summoning)
If you’re not in the downloading mood, you can hear a few of the mixtape tracks on the band’s MySpace page.
