MY HFNY 2009 mix

two headed baby from the cathederal of junk in austin

it has been a two-headed baby of a year

here it is another turn done spun round about and we are at the beginning of the end of the beginning again. what a year – from the depths to the heights. filled with joy and delight at love found at the hiss of a serpent’s tongue amidst the rending and wild frenzy upon the mountaintop…to the mountain…let the dance begin. fed and fufilled by the laughter found among friends on a winter solstice evening around the fire enjoying wine, food, poetry and song, as you will…sustenance of the best sort. taking the next steps to open up a magickal current in my life to priest for she who must be adored in perfect love and perfect trust.

so here are some of the songs that crossed my deck this year, all of them new, all of them bom in one way or another. some of those that didn’t make the mix, the xx, harlem, balmorhea, lady gaga, neon indian, iron and wine, the mountain goats, haale…but then again many of them made the cut on other mixes. so here you have it, my annual excursion into what made me dance, sing, or sigh throughout the year. enjoy. luvmbloomin 2unyers…

merry yuletide and happy fuckin’ new year 2009…see you on the other side of the divide
