Mix Tape for Good Heads


While mix tapes may no longer involve chromium dioxide passing over magnetic heads, there are still many heads who appreciate the music streams of others, and find them particularly useful when engaged in plant shamanics.

To this end, mixtape enthusiast and Arthur editor Jay Babcock has teamed up with recording engineer Bobby Tamkin to bring us Blackout, a fundraiser mix for the magazine with a "pay what thou wilt" link.

The tracks:
1. MOON DUO "Into the Trees" (from the Escape LP on Woodsist)
2. WHITE HILLS "Three Quarters" (from the White Hills LP on Thrill Jockey)
3. WHITE NOISE SOUND "Sunset" (from the White Noise Sound LP on Alive Naturalsound)
4. LORDS OF FALCONRY "Osiron" (from Lords of Falconry on Holy Mountain)
5. ENDLESS BOOGIE "Pack Your Bags" (from the Full House Head LP on No Quarter)
6. MASTERS OF REALITY "Johnny's Dream" (from the Pine/Cross'd Over LP)
7. MESSAGES "Tambura" (from the After Before LP on De Stijl)
8. ENUMCLAW "Harmonic Convergence" (from the Opening of the Dawn LP)

All available for preview at Arthurmag.


  1. Wow…The only band I’m familiar with there is White Hills and their latest is an excellent space rock record. I’ll definitely give it a whirl. Thanks for posting this!

  2. I’m tempted to give this a try, but this post also makes me nostalgic for “Dark Side of the Moon,” and “Ready to Die.”

  3. Not the sort of thing I’d have on whilst indulging in some ‘plant shamanics’.
    Too grate-y. I prefer big, bloopy psytrance bubbles.

    1. #6 – You might dig the second half of the mix. The thing has an arc, ya know. But yeah, there’s no electronica machine stuff on here.

  4. #6 – The thing is designed to be full-on, peak and then mellow into air. Did you get to the second half? Maybe that’s more what you’re looking for. But yeah there’s no Tangerine Dream on there, if that’s what you’re craving…
