The Great 2016 UK Mixtape

Hello, friends on the British Isles —

I am on a fantastic spring tour, currently enjoying green fields full of sheep on a bumpy train. I’ll be playing Bath, Birmingham, Manchester, London, and Cambridge this week.

I brought tons of CD’s from across the ocean for you, they were so very heavy getting on and off of trains, but they have nearly all been bought over on the continent!!!  And I’d hate to have you miss out on a signed CD from far far away…

SO I MADE YOU A MIXTAPE

OF MY SONGS

FOR YOUUUU

I have been making mixtapes for my friends since I could illegally record songs off the radio as a kid.  And this mixtape is not even illegal because it’s all songs I wrote & own and stuff!  If you pick up the UK Mixtape at a show, here is the track list and links to credits:

  1. “Whistle While You Wait” from Something Fierce, guitars by Scott Barkan and Jordan Shindle, cello by Ellen Kilcup
  2. “Elementary” from Sketchbook, guitar by Seth Boyer
  3. “Dear Mister Darcy” from Something Fierce, lengthy credits at the album link
  4. “Paper and Pen” from Sketchbook, guitar by Seth Boyer
  5. “Good Morning Moon” from Something Fierce, lengthy credits at the album link
  6. “I’ll Still Be a Geek After Nobody Thinks It’s Chic (The Nerd Anthem)” from Live in Europe, Scott Barkan on guitar
  7. “The Liberal Arts Degree Waltz” from Fun Singles in Your Area, Paul Pew on piano
  8. “I Hope My Discipline Improves in Time” from Sketchbook, guitar by Scott Barkan
  9. “Dark Dark Eyes” from Live in Europe, Scott Barkan on guitar
  10. “The Avocado Song” from Something Fierce, guitar by Scott Barkan, harmonica by David George Gordon
  11. “Temporal Dominoes” from Something Fierce, lengthy credits at the album link
  12. “Hope” from Sketchbook, guitar by Seth Boyer

You can hear lots more music, including the albums that contain these songs, at the best little indie music website in the world Bandcamp.com. I’m at http://mariancall.bandcamp.com.  You can find Scott Barkan’s original music at https://scottbarkan.bandcamp.com.

Enjoy this mixtape and feel free to rip it, burn it, spread it around — and if you like it, tip us, get on the mailing list, or buy another album!

Space Weird Thing

In May 2015 Marian Call, Molly Lewis, Patrick Race, and Seth Boyer create a sweded version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” video, rewriting the song using only the 1000 most common English words — in the style of Randall Munroe’s Up-Goer Five diagram.  Credits and more details on Youtube or at Alaskarobotics.com — and hey, this little homemade video made it to the official David Bowie website and the front page of xkcd.com!
