I'm always trying to get my mom into 'hip' music, but she's pretty picky. Actually, she's super-duper picky, thus my need to make this mix.

I present to you, a compilation of songs that I adore, yet my mother will never understand.

Track 4 from Motorcade of Generosity
Length: 00:02:19
Year: 1994
Track Description:
The song sounds innocent, but I don't think my mom would really grasp the complex humour of pairing a disjoint country-western musical backdrop with lyrics like 'your feet are dry with the ashes from dead babies'.

A perfect way to open a non-mom-friendly mix.

Track 8 from Chocolate and Cheese
Length: 00:02:55
Year: 1994
Track Description:
This song makes me smile. The quirky music and slurred vocal style makes it truly unique in my book, but I think my mother would have conflicting opinions.

This song rides the tails of Pentagram and sets the 'weirdness' factor for the next cut.

The guitar tone on this track slays me. It reminds me of evolved surf, but a few generations inbred. Too random for madre.

Track 3 from Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?
Length: 00:03:08
Year: 2004
Track Description:
I double dog dare you to listen to the first 30 seconds of this song and not laugh. The awkward synth on this song cracks me up every time. Being raised in the '80s, I think I have a special appreciation for really cheesy sounding synths, something that would be wasted on my mom.

For the best fit, chop off the silence on the end and crossfade with the next track. Seamless.

Track 2 from Moon Safari
Length: 00:05:00
Year: 1998
Track Description:
My theme song from when I was living in the dorms a few years back. The girls were all over me and I'm not even bragging. It's the truth.

This song has some gorgeous vocoder on it, which, much like the synth from the Unicorns track, would be wasted on the likes of my mother.

Track 1 from Window Licker
Length: 00:06:07
Year: 1999
Track Description:
I can safely say that there is no way I could ever convince my mother that this man is a genious. It's not that she wouldn't see the controlled chaos of his compositions, it just might be a little over her head.

This song combined with it's music video might just be one of the greatest things ever.

For the best effect, chop this song with 20 seconds left, at the height of the 'champagne spray' climax and crossfade with the next cut.

Track Description:
"POCKETS FULL OF CRAZY"

Spencer Moody is a madman on this track. This song is pure rock. In fact, it's way too much rock for my mother.

This track is to my mix what cigarettes are to teenagers -- a gateway. Except what follows isn't cocaine, it's more craziness.

Track 10 from California
Length: 00:04:29
Year: 1999
Track Description:
"May your sun be blown out just like a candle / May your sea burn like tar / May your sky be rolled up like a scroll / May your blue moon drip with blood."

Much like Aphex, my mom will probably never appreciate and of Mike Patton's projects, especially this one. This song reminds me of drinking HRD and generic Squirt out of a coffeemug a few Summers back. Those days, much like this song were pure craziness.

Despite the fact that I think the bouncing / descending 'chorus' to this song is pure radness, my mom just doesn't really understand anything containing distortion.

There is no fucking way I could even get my mother to listen to this band, yet alone appreciate it. The broken glass sounds in the background really drive this track home for me.

Track 16 from The Locust
Length: 00:00:50
Year: 1999
Track Description:
The silence at the start of this song is key -- at this point, my mother would secretly be wishing that the 'loud' part of the mix is over, but alas, it's not.

There's something so rad about lo-fi hardcore, especially when it has crazy space-age synthesizers up in the mix.

Track 4 from Unifying Themes Redux
Length: 00:03:18
Year: 0000
Track Description:
This is a 'cover' of a fairly famous song opera song called O'fortuna. One of my favourite Botch cuts, it has some radass drumming, but sadly, my mom doesn't like crazy drumming -- she likes music she can tap her foot to. Like Steve Winwood.

A side note: Jake Snider from Minus The Bear fame is listed as an 'engineer' for this album. Rock.

Asking my mom to listen to Hella is like asking my mom to buy me porno and booze. At age 8.

Track 3 from The Red Sea
Length: 00:07:19
Year: 1998
Track Description:
Loud, disjoint and as heavy as 1,000 pounds of rotting human appendages crushing your throat. There is nothing in this song that my mother could even hope to understand.

This marks the end to the 'loud' part of the mixtape, as is signaled by the next track.

If you haven't heard this song, I highly suggest you get a copy as this 13 second gem has appeared on my mixes more than any other song.

Just listen and you'll understand why.

Track 5 from cLOUDDEAD

Year: 2001
Track Description:
Although most hip-hop 'all sounds the same' to my mother, this track is one of the most bizzare and abrasive 'hip-hop' tracks I know of and also one of my favourites -- Dose is in fine form and when Sole busts in (around 3:30), it's nothing short of magic.

My mom don't like anything Anticon.

Track 8 from Head for the Shallow
Length: 00:05:17
Year: 2004
Track Description:
This should be included in the middle of the 'loud' section of this mixtape, but it a perfect mixtape closer, ending on a truly epic note. I haven't asked her, but my mom probably doesn't like sludgey, overdriven bass with dog-barking, throad-raping vocals.
