Sleepytime Mixtape Project: 1 & 2
1. [MP3]: A.C. Newman :: Come Crash
This is the perfect lead off song to any sleepytime mix. Its not as soft as some of the other songs that will come later, but it's the perfect wind down song. In the chorus where he says, "Christine come crash on my floor" there's a guitar bend and drum roll that make it feel like Christine crashed on floor right after he said that.
2. [MP3]: Autistic Daughters :: The Glass House and the Gift-Horse
I first heard this song on a Kranky records compilation and I would listen to it in bed with just this song on repeat the whole time. The song goes back and forth from acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drone and bells. The whispered vocals make the song feel very tense like its always on the brink of snapping but instead it's just immensely mesmerizing.
