An exclusive and rather beautiful mix by Cardiff based musician SCRIBER exclusively for Cat On The Wall. We interviewed the songwriter in 2011 so make sure you give it a read here. You will be able to grab a copy of his lovely new EP ‘Every Particle’ on 12″ vinyl from the 11th March 2013. http://scriber.bandcamp.com/
Here are a few words about each track from SCRIBER himself:
Corridor (Split a Light) – SCRIBER
This is a song from my own EP being released on 12″ via Rocking Chair Records. One of the things we tried to do is make a record to sound just right on vinyl. I think we nailed it with this, I really love it.
Berlin Syndrome – Sparky Deathcap
I know Rob through various reasons, I heard this towards the end of last year and fell in love with it. It’s almost a cross between Adam Green and, my hero, Leonard Cohen.
Help Me – Low Roar
This I found via my friend and musician Ed Tullett by accident. It’s one of those songs I kind of froze at when I heard it. I could listen to his voice for years.
Milk – The Bronze Medal
I supported these guys a really long time ago, this has just been emblazed so deeply in my CD collection. I love the lyrics, the chorus especially.
Panda Eyes – Nanook of The North
Honestly, I can’t rave enough about this band; I seriously can’t. The EP is incredible, but this recently has circled my head a lot. Joe’s voice is like velvet, such stunning imagery. If this band don’t make it, I will give up.
Where To Now Darlin – Cakehole Presely
I have a soft spot for this band. I found them via the On-Par documentary about them, such lovely people.
Midnight Ferry Crossing – Fionn Regan
Things like this make me so inspired, yet so unworthy. King Fionn.
Moon – Winter Villains
I’ve got a crush on all the bands on Barely Regal Records, can’t go wrong with these guys.
Old Year/New year – Ides
Not sure how I found this, but it was just after New Years, so it felt quite fitting; a real Feist feel to it. “How was the rest of your year/I really wish you were here” is simply heartbreaking.
So Long, Lonesome – Explosions in The Sky
Obviously, Explosions forever.
Flinch – Joel Harries
I’m awaiting Joel’s new album intently, check out “Hopeless Lost” when it’s out. A stunning man.
Everybody’s Amazing (Nobody’s Happy) – Olympians
That moment in the film where everybody makes up and everyone realises that everything’s going to be ok. This is like an anthem to that. Viva Olympians.
