Idle Hands Mix

It's pretty bad that this is my first post of 2014. However I will be attempting a strong comeback to the CNF mix scene. Shooting for one a week. We'll see how long I can keep it up. If I keep them around the 30-40 min mark, and don't try to make everything absolutely perfect, I think it can be done. Quantity over quality right? Always a good rule. Anyway, here's some tunes that I've been diggin lately. Hope you do to.


Track list:
Satan's Pilgrims- Shit Sandwich
Palace Brothers- Idle Hands are the Devil's Plaything
T.L. Barrett And Youth For Christ Choir- Like a Ship
Sun Kill Moon- Richard Ramirez Died Today Of Natural Causes
Gang Gang Dance- Vacuum
Junior Wells- I Got a Stomach Ache
Jay Reatard- Fluorescent Grey
Ween- Laura

Mix: Dead of Night

Threw a mix up to let you good people know we're still around..

My man Beck says it all in this one:

"These withered hands have dug for a dream
Sifted through sand and leftover nightmares
Over the hill, a desolate wind
Turns shit to gold and blows my soul crazy"

Tracklist after the jump - cheers, y'all.

Will's Favorite Albums of 2013

Yeah, I know - we're a week into 2014 now. I can be lazy, and Ol' Man Thunda's year-end list is really what y'all should be reading...good on you for that one, Thunda. Great stuff. Still, I gotta get my piece on record here at the Non-Factor, so here goes. To try and do a little something different than my partner, I attempted to order my personal favorites of the year in music - roughly at first - leading into a top 10 countdown.

But seriously, if you want to really know what's up with the best tunes of 2013, do yourself a favor and read the first (and let's just call it the official) Complete Non Factor Year End List.  Cheers.

The Rough Countdown

Bare Mutants - The Affliction
Nguzunguzu - Skycell
Oneohtrix Point Never - R Plus 7
Fuzz - Fuzz
Unknown Mortal Orchestra - II
Smith Westerns - Soft Will
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City
Beach Fossils - Clash The Truth
Mammoth Grinder - Underworlds
Daft Punk - Random Access Memories
Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels
Boards of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest
Kurt Vile - Waking on a Pretty Daze
Jai Paul - Jai Paul
Autre Ne Veut - Anxiety
Phosphorescent - Muchacho
Danny Brown - Old
Bonobo - The North Borders

Now, After the Jump -- My 10 Favorite Albums of 2013

Best of 2013

Taking a cue from my favorite music blog, and not assigning any order to this list. Albums are not sports teams, there's no inherent ranking that anyone can reasonably derive from comparing seperate pieces of music to one another. The other reason is that there was a ridiculous amount of quality music released this year, and trying to include or reject certain albums proved to be near impossible. So in that spirit, here's my list (keep in mind I'm only one half of CNF). No structure, just a bunch of amazing music that I thoroughly enjoyed this year.
