gilberto custódio é referência quando assunto é música indie. e ele fez uma seleção para a miguxtape bem nesse espírito. tem até pipas cantando “barbapapa”, uma das músicas preferidas da minha adolescência!

“comecei a montar essa logo depois que ela me pediu, já que não conseguia pensar em outra coisa… sou meio viciado em criar mixtapes. essa só tem vozes femininas. foi por acaso essa escolha. quando percebi as três primeiras eram bandas com vozes femininas, aí decidi continuar a brincadeira”, diz em seu blog, o lazer guided melodies.

a imagem que ele escolheu pra ilustrar é de cath carrol, vocalista do miaow.

segue a seleção de faixas:

1. Penelope Houston, “Qualities of Mercy”
2. Elysian Fields, “Ladu in the Lake”

e fiquem “com um das melhores letras de todos os tempos”, segundo gilberto: “what are you wearing”, escrita pelo momus para a kahimi karie

A little sweater, it’s irridescent
It’s got a geometric grid of little squares
My legs are bare
I will describe my underwear
It’s warm against my hair
Soft against my skin
But you can’t come in
Until the pink and yellow duck
That is printed on the front
Begins to smile

(What are you wearing?)

I’ve got a hat on
My shirt is satin
It’s got a picture of a pony in a field
My hair is green today
I’m wearing see through Pierre Cardin
My scent is Paco by Rabanne
My hair is in a bun
My holster holds a gun
I filled it from a tap
My tummy sprang a drip
Your water pistol spilled
Be very careful, someone could get wet
Or someone could get killed

And I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve
I am wearing my wound with pride
I am wearing a smile and nothing at all
Up on the catwalk
Down in the strip club
Up on the catwalk
Down in the strip club
Catwalk (miaow!)
Strip club (grrr!)

(What are you wearing?)

I bought a pair of shoes by Jeremy Scott
I threw away the wrapper and I threw away the box
I went to an opening in my new clothes
Serge Comte Post-It Notes
I used to be a hologram, Anagram Sam
I used to be a big Suicide fan
I used to have a wiggle, now I walk like a man
And where it’s at is where I am

(What are you wearing?)

I made this skirt from
A groovy curtain
Somebody ripped out of a pretty bungalow
And in my knickers
There is a flower my mother sewed
My shirt is shiny like a toad
I’m wearing Heidi braids
And aviator shades
I favour flatter shoes
My sailor suit is blue
And if it weren’t for you
I’d take it off and leave it in a heap
Right here in the street

And I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve
I am wearing my wound with pride
I am wearing a smile and nothing at all
Up on the catwalk
Down in the strip club
Up on the catwalk
Down in the strip club
Catwalk (miaow!)
Strip club (grrr!)

(What are you wearing?)

I used be a telegram, Hologram Sam
I used to be the walrus, now I’m John
I used to be a wham bam thank you ma’am
I used to be the kitten of all Japan
I come from everywhere I have ever been
Every boy is a king and every girl is a queen
Every girl is a king and every boy is a queen
And where it’s at is where I am

Call me
Call me
Call me
