the mix and match project was conceived by myself and chris schooley as a way of friends working collaboratively to educate ourselves and others about music. it started very simply: an exchange of mix cd's and coffee. then we talked more about it and decided to include more people, in an effort to make the result (hopefully) at least somewhat entertaining.

Mix and Match Vol. 3 - Submissions from the Capt.

i wondered how long it would be before joe's nasty little secret was revealed. i just didn't think it would be one of us that outed him. peroxide and shaved legs be damned. let's get to the music.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Red Right Hand
admittedly, i'm wanting to get this one here before someone else jumps on it and steals it out from me...such a great song, and while almost any nick cave has that sort of inherent creepiness undertone, this one pairs his vocal stylings with a perfectly fitted storyline. a bit overused in movie soundtracks perhaps, but well worth having in any collection.

Southern Culture on the Skids - Zombified
the title track to an EP the NC based trio released a few years it's core, it's a love song, which begs the question, is it necrophilia if you have sex with the undead?

Sunn O))) - Sin Nanna
One of (if not the) shortest song in the Sunn O))) repertoire, these guys are just downright fucking creepy. while way to much emphasis has been put on their attempts to find the "brown notes", the sheer beauty of the drone must be appreciated.

Red Right Hand is a fantastic song! I think it's a great Halloween tune -- I almost chose it too.
