So maybe all I do now is blog Korallreven mixes but WHATEVER. This new one isn’t exactly new but isn’t exactly old. Isn’t that fascinating? The mix CD came with purchase of An Album by Korallreven and features many cuts from their previous dream-y mixes. It’s nearly an hour long and totally gorgeous. I ripped the CD and put it up here for you to download. Enjoy it!

Holy Ghost! put up this fun cover of Ministry’s “I Wanted to Tell Her” on Green Label Sound for free download. It features their DFA buddies Nancy Whang and Juan Maclean and lots of jittery grooves. Great bassline too. Maybe you can hear it on their current tour?

Not only is Pedro Almodóvar’s newest movie, The Skin I Live In, an excellent film, it also features great music. The score by Alberto Iglesias, is compelling but not overbearing. Almodóvar is pretty well known for using music during integral scenes, and for this film he chooses Trentemøller’s “Shades of Marble” for an intense cat-and-mouse moment creating an eerie but exciting atmosphere.
