3am Mixtapes: Episode One: First Tracks

These are the people who saw an overcrowded marketplace and said, "Me too!"

That's right. 3am Revelations once again has its very own podcast!

Each week on 3am Mixtapes, I will present to you, in my dulcet tones, the Top Six Songs of a certain subject. The topics can be as broad and vague and Best Summer Songs or Best Songs Featuring a Banjo,
or they can be as obscure and specific as Best Songs To Drive To At Dusk or Best Songs Featuring a Theremin.

The first week, I thought what better place to start than with the beginning. Top Six Opening Tracks. The first songs on an album. The ones that catch your attention and make you want to keep listening.

Featured on this weeks podcast is:

"Giant" by Matthew Good Band
"Like Eating Glass" by Bloc Party
"Nobody Moves Nobody Gets Hurt" by We Are Scientists
"Your Ex-Lover is Dead" by Stars
"New Goodbye" by Hey Rosetta!
"Fight Test" by The Flaming Lips

  1. I love this theme.
    It's been fun trying to think what my own list would include.
    I've decided it would have Like Eating Glass and Your Ex-Lover is Dead, plus Metric's Empty, Interpol's Untitled, Mother Mother's O My Heart and Sunset Rubdown's The Mending of the Gown.
    They all perfectly set the tone for the albums.
    But your list is awesome too, of course :P

  2. Very good listening. Only thing I would like to point out (not that it's really a big deal): I believe With Love and Squalor is We Are Scientists second album. Though the band likes to pretend their first album Safety, Fun, and Learning (In That Order), doesn't exist it's one of my favorites.
